We thank God and take courage

J. H. Large, Lesmahagow, Lanark

WE are too conscious of shortcomings to become complacent over the reception which " Precious Seed " continues to receive—rather we are thankful to God for His help in a task to which we can give but a small proportion of our time. Numerous appreciations continue to reach us- more than we can spare space to quote. If we give a selection from time to time it is because we feel that friends who support the effort are entitled to know that the magazine is proving useful. Readers will notice in the following that in some cases whole assemblies value the little book, that young people especially are being helped, and that testimonies come from a wide area at home and abroad,
