When Joseph introduced his father, Jacob, and his brothers to Pharaoh in Genesis 47, Pharaoh said, "The land of Egypt is before thee; in the best of the land make thy father and brethren to dwell; in the land of Goshen let them dwell: and if thou knowest any men of activity among them, then make them rulers over my cattle." (6)

Men and women of activity are always in high demand. It has been said, "If you want something done, find a busy person to do it."

The land of opportunity is before us. Satan will seek to hinder us, but we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. We rejoice in the many activities of the Lord's church in our area. The summer season has certainly been busy, and we pray that many souls are being saved and strengthened in the Lord.

The Pennsboro church of Christ is fully engaged in their preparations for their lectureship scheduled for September 9-12. Have you made your plans to attend? I am looking forward to seeing many of our readers there.

Another new congregation has subscribed to the paper. We are now sending 88 bundles, in addition to our individual permit mailings. Our total circulation last month was 2,719 copies. Please continue to show your paper to others and encourage them to sign up soon. We are in our 14th year of publication, and the Lord has truly blessed us with faithful writers and readers. We need your continued prayers and help. -Albert
