many, but each EMM member is hoping that the Lord will say to him, “ She [or he] hath done what she could” (Mark 14:8). HI!
refugees, waifs. Daily war multi plies the needs o f the people. As far back as April 1962, Emergen cy Mission of the Month bought a jeep for Christian and Mission ary Alliance missionary Ruth Jeffrey. She had explained “ Every road is dangerous today in Viet nam but if we had a Landrover we would be able to visit camps where troops are stationed on their way to a rendezvous with death.” The most recent gift was equip ment for Truong Voung Hospital for dependents of Vietnamese soldiers. This hospital was opened by wives o f generals, headed by Madame Thieu, wife of the newly elected president o f South Viet nam, General Nguyen Van Thieu. It is the only hospital in the Sai gon area for those whose hus bands and fathers are fighting Communism. The needs have continued. The gifts have continued. Mrs. Jef frey wrote, “ I am constantly be ing asked for slippers as the men who can walk get their feet so dirty without slippers. One pair is enough for two men who have lost opposite limbs. In this way they soon learn to hobble around on crutches. Too, there is a con stant need for Bibles, Testaments, Gospels and other litera tu re wich must be given to every new arrival.” Money was sent to her for creature comforts and spiritu al comfort. Other gifts included crutches and wheelchairs for these wounded soldiers. And so the ministry of Emer gency Mission o f the Month con tinues. Each month a gift is given in Jesus’ name to meet a crisis need. The hope of EMM is new members who will enable more needs to be met. Occasionally EMM has been able to help two groups o f people in one month. For instance, September 1967, EMM gave money to an orphan age in India whose buildings had been destroyed by fire and to a small hospital in India that need ed additional equipment. The needs throughout the world are
home for beggar boys, it was dis covered that he suffered from both malnutrition and TB of the lungs, so he was sent to the clinic. He said the clinic was the nicest place he had ever been in his life! Thanks to the gift from members o f Emergency M iss ion o f the Month, this boy was given a new life. EMM H elps P r isoners Emergency M iss ion of the Month also remembers those who are in prison. Bilibid Prison, near Manila, Philippines, is one o f the largest prisons in the world, and is known for the terrorism of its riots. The 8000 inmates are so crowded that in some of the build ings there is no room for cots. They must sleep on the floor. Complete idleness is part o f the punishment. Into these sordid surroundings goes Olga Robertson, bringing tracts, performing small kind nesses and preaching the Gospel. Many have been converted through her ministry. The usual attendance at the services is 200. They did not have an adequate place to meet. Mrs. Robertson secured permission from the Bureau of Prisons to build a church, and decent dormi tory for the trustee-elders, on the prison ground, with the prison ers performing the labor. But she needed money for cement, wiring, everything that would be needed to construct the chapel. Knowing about World Vision International, she wrote to Dr. Bob Pierce, appealing to his gen erous heart. He, in turn, suggest ed that Bilibid would be a suit able place to give an Emergency Mission o f the Month gift. The chapel was built and pris oners may worship the Lord in a clean, worshipful atmosphere. The chapel with its cross stands as a symbol of true freedom to be found only in Christ.
