GALLIPOLIS, OH 45631 Thanks for the great job you and Nancy do in faithfully publishing WV Christian each month. Of all the brotherhood publications ever promoted in this area, WV Christian is surely one of the best. Those who subscribe and read all the articles printed are strengthened and built up spiritually. I am preaching most of my time for Chapel Hill in Gallipolis. The rest of the time I shall be with the church in West Union, WV.

BRIGHTON, TN 38011 - ... The publication continues to present doctrinally sound articles ... With the modernization of "the pattern" and the liberal attitude toward His authority, our need to propound the unsearchable riches of God is demanded. That you are presenting issue by issue. Especially plain, logical, and faithful to the Word were several of the past month's issue ... the article of George Erwin and those by Charles Aebi and Roger Rush really stood out to me. It really encourages, admonishes, and edifies me as I strive to live for Jesus.

I am walking with some improvement. A walker is necessary ... a wheel chair is justified if not required if I go outside the house ... A teaching privilege has been granted to me by the church of our Master in Covington, TN. I praise Him daily for enabling me to pursue this wonderful assignment ... My daughter and son-in-law, David and Heather Keith, are faithful children of the heavenly Father. They have moved me into their home; providing me with my own private room containing every comfort they can afford and that I have room for ... May our trust in Him sustain our faithfulness, maintain our love for Him, for our Christian family, and for our enemies and keep our hope fast until He comes or we die. The work you do helps to undergo the opposition, resist the slanderer, and draw near to God. Because of Him, Jim Mitchell, 161 Patriot Cove.
