“When our servant boy died three months ago, having taken his own life w ith poi­ son, and I beheld our enemies taking ad­ vantage of this unfortunate event to a c­ cuse me of crime I must confess that the black clouds began to roll over me and I felt that my soul was in deep waters. I am sure that I passed through the three darkest days of my life at that time. Satan sought hard to triumph, both w ithout my heart and within, and though my clear vision of Christ was dimmed fo r a season by my perm itting Satan to fill my mind with fear and many perturbing im agina­ tions, the Lord was careful not to let me go under and He sent much com fort and assurance through His W ord and in the cheer o f the beloved brothers and sisters o f the Mission.

H ow ­ ever, you are not to think o f thousands com ing to us for entrance into the k in g­ dom, but here and there a soul is gathered in and so the w ork goes on. Hundreds crowd the doors of our chapels and hear the W ord from week to week, but like the parable of the Sower “Some seed fall by the wayside some on stony ground some among thorns: but praise to H is name, some fall on the good ground, and it is o f these that we ask you to rejoice with us.” O come and claim Thy ransomed ones, for we have waited long To welcome Thee, our risen Lord, with glad, triumphant song: Be Thou our guide while yet our feet must tread the earthly way, And lead Thy pilgrims through the night to everlasting day. —Edith Divall.
