ST. MARYS, WV 26170 Our prayers are with you in your work for the Lord and his church. Keep up the good work of spreading the truth in love. Charles Wright, 909 4th St. (Brother Charles recently suffered a ruptured bowel and colon. He continues to recover at home under the "strict supervision" of his wife, Martha, and his daughter, Melinda. I know he would appreciate your prayers and cards.)

ERWIN, TN 37650 I do appreciate the work that you and the staff at West Virginia Christian do. I enjoy reading and studying the articles printed therein. I pray that God continue to bless you and your work. Terry R. Townsend, 710 Rock Creek Rd.

LeGRANGE, OH 44050 On October 20th my wife and I began full-time work with the Forest Street church in LaGrange. The Lord blessed us with a beautiful day, the brethren welcomed us warmly and the ladies provided a delicious meal at noontime. Both periods of worship were very uplifting and a retired lady who had been a Catholic all her life obeyed the Lord in baptism. She was taught by her sister and brother-in-law who are members of this congregation. She is very faithful in her attendance and continues to search God's word. We have other prospects and have reason to believe the work here will grow in number as well as in spirit. Please pray for our efforts. If you know of any who are living in our area and are not Christians, or of those who have become unfaithful to the Lord, please let us know of them. Call us at (440) 355-6872 or (330) 414-6197. Don Cooper, P.O. Box 273.

GALLATIN, TN 37066 We really do appreciate the paper and usually read every article. It seems that kind of preaching and teaching is waning. We are from West Virginia ... Thanks so much. The Chapmans, (John and Alene), 157 Hale Ave.

GALLIPOLIS, OH 45631 The Annual homecoming was held with the Laurel Hill Congregation, Radford, VA, Sunday August 28th. It was one of the best, with twelve visiting Congregations. Dinner was enjoyed on the church grounds. I preached at the morning Worship hour and again at 2:00 P.M. Congregational singing followed the preaching service. Laurel Hill is believed to be the oldest Congregation in Virginia. The evening service was held at Floyd, VA with another good crowd. I shall be with the Church at Spring Dale, West Virginia Sundays Nov. 20th, and 27th., also Dec. 18th, and 25th. Then I shall be with the Church at South Franklin St., Christiansburg, Virginia for a "Special Lord's Day" January 1st., 2006. Lewis Mikell, P.O. Box 302.

TIPP CITY, OH 45371 The work at Tipp City is going great. The elders are greatly concerned about leading the church in the right direction. They are a tremendous support and encouragement to me in preaching the gospel. Peace, unity, and love seem to be prevailing in the congregation. For this I am truly thankful. ... I know the paper is having a positive impact in the lives and congregations of those who are subscribed to it. I would like for you to begin sending a bundle of 25 to our congregation. I know the members will enjoy reading the West Virginia Christian and that it will be profitable in helping them to grow as Christians. Keep up the good work! -Robert Vincent, 6460 S. County Road 25A. (937) 667-8513.
