HEPZIBAH, WV 26369 Dear Brother, It is that time of year that I need to renew my paper. I always look for it the 1st of the month. It is so encouraging to see and read those good Christian papers. Keep up the good work. Mary King, PO Box 341

VIENNA, WV 26105-2915 Dear Albert, Someone has been sending me the WV Christian for sometime. I see so many names I recognize and know. My Dad would have been happy to see the good work you do. Margaret Tice Lewis, 4511 9th Ave. (Editor's note: Brother Fred Tice, sister Lewis' father, was a strong encourager to me during my school days at Ohio Valley College. He and his wife were faithful members of the Red Bush church of Christ which is now the Little Hocking church of Christ. He was an excellent Bible teacher and was especially helpful to me in my studies of the kingdom.)

HUTTONSVILLE, WV 26273 Greetings from HCC. The prison ministry is doing well here. We are growing stronger in the Lord and His Word. Ron Reeves and Kent Moss from the Goff St. church of Christ (Elkins) come in on Sunday afternoons to teach and worship our Lord. We had 3 more baptisms in the last 2 weeks and thank God that we have someone who is willing to sacrifice their Sunday afternoons to bring light into the darkness of this world! To God be the glory! -Dennis Burch 24333, HCC PO Box 1.
