AMMA, WV 25005 A weekend Gospel Meeting, September 29 October 1, at Shock, WV was the first one in the new building, and the building was filled. The meeting was attended by people from fourteen congregations. The church seems to have taken a road to growth and continued good influence in Central West Virginia. Vernon Kerns is the local preacher and is sound in the faith. It was a joyous experience to again be with them in this meeting. I held a meeting in their old building in 1942. They are a happy group of Christians and show potential for a good work. To God be the glory! We wish them Godspeed. Blaine Cook, PO Box 13.

WESTON, WV 26452 Enclosed find check for another year of West Virginia Christian. I have received every issue of this very fine paper. It was my privilege to do the preaching in a Gospel Meeting at 'River' in Upshur County in August. I have been going there every third year for nearly forty years. Was in another meeting in Franklin, WV the first five days of October. This is a small congregation but each member is dependable. Every member attended every service except Sunday evening when one had to work. However, she took vacation for the remainder of the time so she could be present at each service. I call this dedication that you do not often see anymore. Roy Pratt, 807 Camden Ave.

EAST POINT, GA 30344 I hope all is well with you and your family and all your fellow workers. Thank you for continuing to publish WVC. Hopefully it will teach many the truth. I continue to pray for you ... Thanks again for all that you are doing to spread the Gospel. Ray Jackson, 1068 Jefferson Ave.
