In an isolated mountain home the mother of eight little children passed into eternity, leaving Gertrude, 10, Jim­ mie 9, Bobby 7, Frieda 5, Annie 3, Don­ ald 2, John Henry 13 months, and a wee premature baby one week old. The father and two of the children were ill in bed with pneumonia. Jack and Helen Brown, both of the class of ’41, heard the Mace­ donian call and went over the long hill to visit this home. The things they saw and heard moved them so mightily that they recognized this as a definite call to minister to these little ones in the name of the Lord. The new baby was taken into a neighboring home, while the seven older ones were taken home with Jack and Helen. This is the beginning of what the Browns and the Kentucky Mountain Mission, Inc., believe will be a Children’s Home, at Beattyville. Remember this work in your prayers that guidance may be given and all needs supplied. The latest word from Lois TJhlinger ’42 and her husband Elwyn Pelletier is that they are now working under the Conservative Baptist Foreign Missionary Society in the Bible school established at Ruanguba by Paul TJhlinger and George Kevorkian in March 1948. Eighty-nine boys are enrolled at the present time; thirty-eight of this group are second- year students. They are being trained in evangelistic methods and their trips into, native villages have resulted in a num­ ber of conversion's. The Whale family have arrived in Africa. They write: “ Keep praying for the African leaders . . . Political and social developments in Nigeria are pre­ senting new situations to be met and problems to be solved by the missionary with an urgency which is difficult to exaggerate. The need and scope for work amongst boys—who must either swell the ranks of modern paganism or form the backbone of the church of the future is surely obvious to all.” Timothy ’33 and Helen Pietsch, Tokyo Foreign Missionaries, APO 500, c/o Post­ master, San Francisco, now working under the International Pocket Testa­ ment League which has a program of distributing New Testaments in Japan, write: “ It is wonderful being mis­ sionaries, and gets better all the time. How sorry we are for you folks who have to stay at home . . .” They were invited to show the picture “ The God of Creation” to some of the princes and princesses of the Imperial Family. Fol­ lowing this they had dinner, and an op­ portunity to present Christ to them. Helen is suffering from an Oriental dis­ ease of the heart due to an important vitamin deficiency. Put this work on your prayer list. H. H. Foucar ’25, born in China of missionary parents, and who served his alma mater in the Hunan branch of the Bible Institute of Los Angeles for a number of years, has been appointed a full-time faculty member of the Bap­ tist Bible Institute of Cleveland.

She writes: “ I cannot hope to tell you what a joy it has been to receive The King’s Business during the past several years, especially during the two years I was engaged in work for the Mennonite Central Committee among the refugees in Paraguay, S. America. The Biola Family section of course, was almost like a letter from the family, and all other material in the magazine gave help for the children’s and youth groups — after it had been translated into German.” Wm. G. Graves ’27, and Madge Hen- derson-Graves ’23, 65 Phelps St., Vallejo, Calif., are praising the Lord for the pro­
