The TV reporter began by saying the eyes of the world were focused upon Aruba and the search for Natalee Holloway. It is true. Many have gone to Aruba to search for her, but, after many weeks, little real evidence has been discovered. We only know she remains missing and that her missing is the consequence of some bad choices she made. The attention of the world upon this missing girl and upon others who are missing is, I believe, positive. We are concerned; we do care.

How much do we, the church, care about lost souls? The whole world lies in wickedness. 1 John 5:19. Billions of people are without Christ, ... having no hope, without God in the world." Ephesians 2:12. We, too, became lost as the consequence of very bad choices. James 1:14-16. Jesus came to seek and to save that which was lost. The "... dayspring from on high hath visited us, to give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace." Luke 1:78-79. We have been found. What are we, individually and congregationally, doing to save the lost?

We seek, by this paper, to find and to save the lost and to help the saved to remain saved. We thank all who support our work through prayers, subscriptions, and well-written articles. Our circulation for August was 2,514 copies. Our goal remains 2,700. We need your continued help. Albert.
