MOUNTAIN CITY, TN 37683 - ... I am 55 years old and tend to the needs of the elderly men here (68-89). I help them write letters, pick up their food trays, even assist them in some hygiene functions. But most of all they love for me to read to them. I always read the Word first ... Then, in the evenings I often read to them articles from the Christian ... I really enjoyed the articles: they were inspiring, edifying and most of all instructional. Thank you for remembering us in prison ... PS: Of all of the newspapers that I have read throughout the years, only the Christian has the addresses of the authors in case you wanted to write to them ... Michael Bridges, #105600 NECX/Ax, PO Box 5000.

SANDYVILLE, WV 25275 Thank you for your work in providing this resource for the people of our state and those outside our state who are fortunate enough to receive it. We always enjoy the articles, news from around the state and the updates on the progress of the paper itself. Please keep up the good work. Many of our members send the paper to their relatives both Christian and non-Christians alike. The work here in Sandyville is going well, we are preparing for a real good meeting this spring with Frank Higginbotham and Glenn Hawkins doing the preaching ... We plan to do some door knocking in the area again this year to better encourage our neighbors to hear the pure, simple truth of the gospel. We have more subscriptions for the paper this year than last ... Jonathan R. Leininger, Rt. 3 Box 189.
