We can go back to Samaria—back to the sins we had left behind. 2. W e can throw ourselves on what seems to be an enemy—advance into God’s mercy. 3. W e can stay where we are—sit still and die. —adapted from T. D e W itt Talmage RIVERS OF LIVING W ATER John 7:38 The springs of life are found in faith. Life in the Spirit is filled with: I. Vitality 1. Christians vitalize dead organiza­ tions. 2. The disciples of Christ are also to vitalize dead dispositions. II. Purity III. Refreshment IV. Hilarity 1. What more fitting symbol of glad­ ness than a stream dancing in tho sunshine? 2. “There is a river the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God.” Perhaps we should sing, “ Like a mighty river moves the Church of God” ; a river carrying vitality, purity, refreshment, and making the birds to sing in the trees that line its banks. — J. H. Jowett

As he wandered on a road begging f o o d from door to door he was found by a police­ man. His father had died and

poverty his mother abandoned him and dis­ appeared. Now he knows love and comfort. Won’t you take him or some other deserving orphan to your heart? Help Train Christian Leaders Here is a work blessed of the Lord with increase. Sponsors, too, report that they are being blessed because they are helping train boys and girls in the Christian life. Each day the children in our Orphanages are taught the Bible, sing Christian songs and earnestly pray. They attend church and Sunday School and are led to receive Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour. New sponsors are desperately needed now that Korea’s severe winter has set in.
