The Lord has been blessing life in marvellous ways and I am happy to be a useful servant. We had over 100 people attending . our Good Friday Service, I think every member, including the children,

brought a friend with them.

The singing was just beautiful and the

participation was lOOfo! After the service, we had a fellowship. The adults brought buns and cheese and the children brought the drinks. Easter Sunday was a day of very rich fellowship. We are intro ducing into our Services more Jamaican songs - songs to thfe Reggae beat. The tunes are simple, yet the words are meaningful to our people. These can be sung with or without a piano.
For our Bible Study", we are meeting from house to house each' month, Steve Egli leads our Bible Study on the book of Revelation and one can feel the Holy Spirit at work. Those who attend are

reading their Bibles and we are just having a great time in the Church!^

Greetings, my friends! Ever since return to Jamaica, I have spoken of three main thingss Establishing a Church of Christ

in Montego B^ys Establishing a Jamaican Service Gamipj Establishing a Training College. You will agree that if the Churches in Jamaica are to continue growing, a trained leadership is vital. We have talked about a college for years, but we have not moved from the talking stages. Now that we are having more and more young people added to the Church, the need becomes more evident and urgent. Besides i^y work in Montego Bay, I am mow discussing, seriously, ways and means of 'establishing a Training Institute, meeting two or three
evenings for the first year.

Looking at our teachers, we now have: Bros. Donald Morrisgraduate of Minnesota Bible'College and Union Theological Seminarys
Carlton Mullings- of Alberta Bible College and Milligan College;

Vincent Graham- Ozar^-t Bible College;

Lushington Bogle-

inston-Salem

Bible College and Ozark Bible Collegej Clive Holness- Atlanta Christian College; Lloyd Morris- Minnesota Bible College; Albert Thompson- Jamaica Bible Seminary; Calvin Baker- Lincoln Christian College. I believe that it is vital for us to have a Christian Education Department. V/ith this in mind, we are sending Marjorie Richards to Minnesota Bible College to prepare herself for the future. I am asking Christians everywhere to assist I'lajorie. Your financial
contributions may be sent to;

Christmas is just aroun^ the corner, and as I think of the reason for Christmas, I want to try and give a very simple reason why
