King's Business - 1949-04

Biola’s full-time president, Dr. Louis T. Talbot, sends greetings to his big family scattered throughout the world in response to the command, “ Go, and Lo,” and says: “ I thank you with all my heart for the many cards and letters re­ ceived . . . I am very happy that now I can give my full time to the Bible Insti­ tute. I trust that the influence of our school may be widened, and that we may have many blessed years together in the work.” William H. (Bill) Lewis '39, now in seminary for further training, is spend­ ing week-ends in deputizing in the inter­ ests of the Kentucky Mountain Mission. Bill opens his letter thus: “ The human heart is never satisfied except it be in full surrender to the will of God. Each Christmas we spent in Kentucky we thought much of our home in Califor­ nia; now that we are in California, we find ourselves thinking much of the joy of Christmas in Kentucky.” Richard and Lucille Falconer-Webster '40, have spent their first Christmas in China. After a worship service, they sat at small tables for their Christmas feast consisting of six main dishes — turnip soup with large pieces of pork, buffalo stew with watermelon rind, fried liver and garlic sprouts, smoked bean curd, sliced fat pork with carrots and pota­ toes, and candied rice! Harold S. Dutton '34, Mission Evan- gelique, Nhatrang, French Indochina, offers praise to God for His lead­ ing in enabling the printing of a new edition of the Annamese Bible, and re­ quests prayer as they begin a year of service in this new station. They have housing problems also.
