as he was a member of the Southwpod
Church in Columbus where I preached
eight years. In all the years I have
known him, even when he was in his
teens, he has been a very conscientious
young man and full of zeal for the Lord.
I can say without reservation that he is a
very consecrated young man. His wife is
a very devoted and capable young lady.
In His service,

The Southwood Church of Christ of
Columbus, Ohio has accepted the re
sponsibility of forwarding our funds to
us while we are in Nigeria. One of the
elders of the church has been appointed
to lead in this work. He is Brother Bob
Hugoniot. No funds should be sent di
rectly to us in Africa. All funds should

Southwood Church of Christ
They then should be mailed to:

$0 LONG FOR A WHILE!
On September 10, we received this
telegram from Roy Goldsberry, the mis
sionary with whom we shall work when
we arrive in Nigeria: Visas approved
sixth. Approval letter should be in New
York today. This telegram was concern
ing the most important visa of all our
visas, the one for Nigeria {Our other visas
are for French, Liberian, and other Bri
tish territories).
We boarded the S. S. African Dawn
at about 2:00 p. m. Thursday, September
27. Loading was nearly completed by
evening, and sailing near, but engine
trouble developed and they worked on it
all night so that we sailed by 9:00 a. m.
Friday, September 28. Roy was to meet
us at the dock in Apapa, Nigeria.
From Apapa we will go to Yaba to
stay with Roy and Barbara until we can
arrange for living quarters of our own .
Once in Yaba, we will begin language
study, and the important work of evan
gelism. Roy just recently wrote: Last
Sunday we baptized ten. That made it
twelve last month. There are three more
who will be coming this next wrrk for
more study and they then will be bap'
tized.
Roy had previously written that he
could baptize many people every day,
but they would not understand what they
were doing. We feel that, in spite of the
many obstacles, Roy has been doing a
wonderful job in Nigeria. We are eagerly
looking forward to our arrival in Apapa.
We would like to hear from you, too.
Our address for now is:

NEEDS
We sincerely believe that the suc
cess of our work depends upon our ask
ing God for wisdom and guidance in all
that we do. Will you pray for us?
From a financial standpoint, we still
need $1,100 for our jeep and about $200
for recording equipment. Also, we could
use another $50 a month for operating
expenses. A complete financial report
will be frequently issued.
THE LORD'S PROVISION
Alittle less than a year ago, we heard
many sighs, and saw looks of amazement
when many learned that we had to have
$1,700 for repatriation, $1,300 for boat
passage, and a great deal morethan either
one of these suras for livinglink support
and operating expenses. We, too, must
admit that these figures did not appear
small. But, in a little less than a year of
traveling, here is what the Lord has seen
fit to supply us with through the hands
of those who love Him and their fellow-
men:
Repattiation $1,700
Boat passage 1,300
Jeep fund 1,000
Livinglink Weekly $65
Operating expenses Monthly $150
PRAISES BE TO THE LORD!!!

these individuals and churches:

HOW LONG YA GONNA BE GONE?
Many have wondered how long we
will be staying in Africa. The answer is
that, the Lord willing, we will stay all
of our lives. We plan to return home at
the end of each five years for a period
of one year. We will work in the States
during that one-year interval. Originally
we had planned to return home at the end
of each seven years; but we reduced it
to five years after receiving the follow
ing information from Roy Goldsberry: So
long as we are careful about washing our
food and our hands, keeping the house
clean, and taking our daraprim there is
little to worry about. However, count on
staying only three years at a time, four
at the most. V/hen we came, we expected
to stay five years, but the doctors re
commend- two. Most of the missionaries
stay three, except fie Sudan Interior Mis
sion which requires four years. Most of
their health failures come in the fourth
year, and then they have to stay in Am
erica for two years before they come
back again if their health failed on the
field. Even the five-year period is not a
fixed period of time. If our health de
mands it, we could return home more of
ten than at the end of each five years.
