SPENCER, WV 25276-1130 – It is with much gratitude and thanksgiving towards God for your toil and labor in the gospel of our Lord & Saviour. The one & only gospel of our salvation which you & your staff of the WVC work so diligently, publishing on printed page. The many & varried, needful, timely & necessary spiritual subjects, topics & messages that are written by faithful men who teach & admonish, not only the believers, but also many zealous, well-meaning, misguided religious folk whom we love dearly, & desire to be one with, in Christ. I myself, have seven siblings still living, of whom, I have postal address for four. I am sending you those address that they may also receive the WVC, with the hope that our labors together, in Christ, will be exceedingly fruitful to the praise, honor & glory of our Saviour’s high & exalted Name. May God bless you richly & abundantly for His word’s sake, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come! With much appreciation for all, –Bro. Harvey Keim, 118 Oak St.

EASLEY, SC 29642 – This is to let you know our intentions in returning to West Virginia and our desire to preach for some of the closer congregations in the area of Gassaway as we can and are needed. February 16th is our projected departure date from Greenville, SC and our new address will be 2615 Elk River Rd., Frametown, WV 26623. We will not have a phone installed until after that date. We also want to spend some time revisiting congregations and members we’ve worked with both in Ohio and West Virginia. We will begin receiving mail at the above address on the 16th of February. 

 I’ve worked with a congregation of the Lord’s church for the past 12 years at Easley, SC. During that time the congregation borrowed money ($100,000) and built a building which is adequate for our current needs. We’ve also recently completed paying off our mortgage and therefore we do not have a loan payment. In order to secure a preacher to continue with the Three and Twenty congregation, letters were sent out in the fall and another group meeting on East Butler Rd. in Mauldin, SC contacted us and plans were made for the two congregations to become one. Bryan Terry was their preacher and will be preaching at Easly as we depart. Recently we’ve lost outside support from some families who were sending monthly while we had an unpaid mortgage on the building. With my weekly support and another charter member’s loss to his home in Alabama, the congregation here will need to call on faithful brethren somewhere to contribute support for the coming year. The address is: Church of Christ 2207 Three and Twenty Rd., Easley, SC 29642. For further information, contact Charles Brady (864-908-6930) or Jason Sloan (864-421-5587). We ask your prayers and consideration as many faithful congregations have closed their doors in recent months. –Charles Brady.

AUSTIN, TX 78748-5307 – The Southwest church of Christ is pleased to announce its 30th Annual Lectureship, April 9-12, 2011. The theme: Championing Christ: Called Unto Conviction. Rick Brumback, Lectureship Director. (512) 282-2486.
