Yokefellows’ Hall is a friend to the fellow that is “up against it.” Each evening at 7 :15 we begin a song service. By 7 :30 the Mission Hall is filled with men. We then lock the en­ trance door and a Gospel message inter­ spersed with praise and testimony is the order for one hour. At 8:30 every man in the Mission is fed a good, substantial meal. The newcomer is given a meal ticket, free, which entitles him to six meals. If he likes us well enough to want to eat longer than the six free meals, he can earn his next ticket by working in our wood yard. We have a large family. Some 1800 meal tickets out.

Since September 280 men have confessed publicly Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord. A Bible study class for con­ verts meets once a week. A Yokefellows’ membership card is is­ sued, on application, to the fellow that gives Jesus Christ first place in his life and heart. This card means co-operative assistance to the holder along, all lines of needs. Students from the Bible' Institute and other Christian workers do personal work each evening in Yokefellows’ Mis­ sion. Street meetings are held from time to time. The Stimson Sunday School for bootblacks and newsboys meets with us each week. Lives are changed. The lost are found. The drunkard is set free. Jesus Christ saves. Praise His name forever. “For several years I have given close ob­ servation to the Mars Hill open-air work as conducted by Rev. William Mullen, un­ der the auspices of the Los Angeles Bible Institute. His religious labors, as con­ ducted on the streets and in the city jail and sub-jails has accomplished more good than I can describe in words. Mr. Mullen is a welcome visitor to the city jail at any hour of the day and night.”
