A year's meditations in the company o f Christ

Stanley Taylor, vice president of Films for Christ Association, Peoria, Illinois, has announced the release of the Spanish version of the award­ winning motion picture “ Call of the Navajo.” M is s io n a r ie s in Latin America anticipate wide usage for this picture which tells the story of Ashkee, an Indian boy studying to become a medicine man. Accused of stealing a valuable silver belt from the trading post, he comes to the missionary for help. After a series of misfortunes, he is converted, and attends mission school, planning to continue on to college and then re­ turning to his people with the mes­ sage of Jesus Christ. The film is available to missions on a lease basis. Further information may be ob­ tained by writing Films for Christ, 1204 North Elmwood, Peoria, Illi­ nois. John Haywood, British missionary to Vietnam w ith the Worldwide Evangelization Crusade, was shot to death by Viet Cong who ambushed a convoy in the mountains north of Da Nang. Mr. Haywood and his wife were in charge of the mission’s lep­ rosy program there. Ken McVety, director of Word of Life Press and TEAM missionary in Japan, has stated that the initial response to the new Japanese New Testament has been utterly over­ whelming. Advance orders swallowed up the first 25,000 copies before they were received from the bindery and the second 25,000 copies were sold within 60 days after their re­ ceipt. A new order for 50,000 copies has been placed with the printers. This revised Japanese New Testa­ ment is the work of 40 Japanese scholars, sponsored jointly by the Lockman Foundation and the Japan Bible Publishers. The sales campaign for the New Testament was launched in a series of rallies in which Dr. Samuel H. Sutherland, president of Biola College, La Mirada, California, brought timely messages on “Why I Believe the Bible is the Word of God.” The rallies were co-ordinated with a nationwide advertising pro­ gram which reached into some of Japan’s largest n ew spapers and magazines.
