“ Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word o f Truth.” —2 Timothy 2:15. John Smith Receives a Letter

Bible Institute of Los Angeles A School for Study and Training IPS'

My dear Mr. Smith:— Your letter o f recent date has been received and read with real interest. W e are happy to note that the way is opening for you to consider a course of training with us, looking toward better preparation for Christian service. W e note your request for catalogue. We are mailing same today under separate cover. You ask about the courses we offer. You will note that they include the GENERAL COURSE, MIS­ SIONS, MUSIC, CHRISTIAN EDUCATION, CHRISTIAN SERVICE MEDICAL, AND PASTORS’ COURSES. These cover a two or three year period of training. They prepare ;the student for many different lines of Christian activity. Let me call your attention to Catalogue Pages Forty-five to Forty-seven under “Information for Intend­ ing Students.” Our students, you will notice, must be at least eighteen years o f age, and not over forty-five. They must have had before entrance, a high school course or its equivalent and at least one year o f Christian experience. The question as to costs has been in your mind. As indicated, there is no tuition charge. The registra­ tion fee is very low, $2.00 per semester. For students residing in our buildings there is an extra charge o f $3.00 per semester for nurse and hospital fund. Board and room are given at a minimum price. Incidental expenses may be kept at a. low figure. You inquire as to the possibility o f finding outside employment while a student, to assist you in meet­ ing the necessary expenses of your course. Let me say that the employment situation in Los Angeles continues to be such that our students find it difficult to secure work. As you will' readily see, it is not wise for a student to count on many hours o f employment in connection with the work o f the class room. W e advise that if you are accepted as a student, you come prepared to care for your financial needs for a few months at least without employment. As to first steps necessary, the enclosed application form should be very carefully and prayerfully pre­ pared and filed with us at an early date. You will be notified within a reasonable time as to our action upon it. We shall be glad to hear from you again. May the Lord bless you as you make your plans, and if He opens the way for you to come we assure you a most cordial welcome. Very sincerely yours, Albert E. Kelly, Student Secretary.

W h y not give preparation fo r the Lord 's work a place in you r plans?
