King's Business - 1912-01

An informal class with one of the fra- ternities at Berkeley, a meeting much cov- eted by Christian workers, resulted very happily in the renewed faith of some of the young men. The November social of the Day Classes was greatly enjoyed. Some were unable to be present, but the rest regretted the swift passing of the hours. At the table many of those present told of the provi- dences that led them to the Institute. The evening closed with sweet fellowship as we remembered our risen Lord in the com- munion service. Tom Hannay, formerly our energetic Evangelist, now of the California State C. E., paid us a visit last month and re- ported that in 46 days he had held 180 meetings, including services in churches, Y. M. C. A. meetings, at Berkeley and Stanford Universities,, shops and street services. Tom is a faithful servant doing business for the Lord. When this magazine reaches you we shall be in the opening week of our Win- ter Term and have* with us our Dean, Dr. B. A. Torrey (who has had such a wonder- ful work, for the last six months, in En- gland and Ireland) and Bev. John Hunter, of the Moody School, identified with its work for seventeen years. Bapid progress is making in the enlargement.of our work and we trust we shall soon be completing our plans for the new building. ; The month of November was one of the best in the history of the Institute. God's blessing rested upon every department. A spirit of prayer and restful service per- vaded the work. The rooms have been the Scene of continued activity. Calls for 'services are multiplying. We are taxed as never before to meet the increasing need and invoke your prayers for wisdom. / - The' meetings at the railway barns, dis- continued through misunderstanding, have been resumed. It is a matter of gratitude to our Lord that over three hundred men petitioned for their resumption. The gos- pel, has lost none of its ¬°power with men, arid our brother Lewis is to be coigratu- lated that God has given him favor with v so large a constituency. Most of the men We are planning for enlarged service in the shop work.

reached in this work have no other means of grace and it is ai great joy to know that many have been brought to Christ and many homes blessed by the reconcilia- tion of husband and wife. The six weeks' mission to San Jose, Berkeley and vicinity has more than ful- filled our hopes. Mrs. Neth returns from her share in, it with a heart full of praise for the opportunities and fruitage God has graciously given. Parlor classes were held each afternoon in San Jose With a large attendance of women who had considered Bible study a thing for Sunday alone. Deep interest and constant inquiries regarding the things of God kept the leader crowded up to the day of her departure. Evening meetings brought good results, from which we expect to hear later. A campaign for a large correspondence class is on. We look forward to securing 500 members and want your help. Bead- ers, lay this matter to heart. You cannot attend the Institute, but you can study at home. We can, through this course, give you our personal attention. You can qual- ify for Christian work and a diploma. It does not equal a course at the Sehool, but is far better than to remain in ignorance and inability to do the work of the Lord. In one town ten members have sub- scribed, Several ministers are taking the course, and we have correspondents in Pennsylvania and Minnesota. Write for full particulars. With the course you re- ceive a Scofield Bible and a year's sub- scription to the King's Business free. Do not miss this opportunity. Great Young People's Union Meetings were held in Santa Barbara. The cam- paign lasted three weeks. A large vacant store on the main street was secured with a seating capacity of 700. Meetings were held every afternoon and evening; all of the churches united and interest increased each succeeding week. Numbers of un- saved were reached, and others brought to a full surrender of their lives to the Lord. Not the least blessing was the building up of young Christians in funda- mental truths, and the deepening of their Christian characters. The pastors aided much with their counsel, sympathy, and prayers. A union class has been organized and will be led weekly by Harry Hill. The campaign leaders were Elliott Barrett,
