As you,can see - support fluctuates from month to month; therefore, what I am able to send them to live off of also
fluctuates.

Let us thank G^-d for their marvelous faith! !

One of the frustrating problems is

that we have no money for buying stock for the kids to work with. So sometimes they sit doing nothing and that's when the trouble

A TRIBUTE TO OUR SUPPORTERS

27^07

I have never found i t difficult to serve the Lord, yet

I have many times found it difficult to accept His will. You see, it is easier to want to do my own thing. Still I have come

to realize that in doing His will, I find it more easier to live


with myself, I have a greater peace and a Blessed Assurance. In listening to friends and watching the things that they do, especially Christian friends, one would like to accept
customs and culture over the Bible, But i f we are to "Be

Christians Only", we must accept the great truth that the

^ibie-^nd: its teachings transcends culture, customs, sind prejudices. This is why I would like to pay tribute to all our loyal supporters
over the years.

The Morris family would like to thank our many friends for support given to us over the years. Things have not been easy. Financially we have never had enough to really meet our needs,

but we have had the strength and courage to believe that we will never go hungry. Looking back we have felt that we have lost some great opportunities because we had no funds to carry them through. But your many letters of encouragement have kept our
eyes on Jesus.

It is good to know that the things that I have been writing and saying for years and for which I was openly criticized, are
becoming central issues in the Christian Standard. For years I have advocated a change in how missionaries are sent out, how money is being spent; that the missionary should really be
accountable to someone. I notice that articles are also

appearing on this matter in the Christian Standard. Many of my friends withdrew their support because of my stand, so it is good to know that my brothers and sisters are finally seeing
the truth in what nationals have been saying for years. You can how see why I would like to pay a special tribute to you my ' ~

friends who have supported me in spite of great opposition. Programs must change, approach must change, but the V/ord of God 'never changes. I have been offered some very lucrative jobs; on the l6th of February, I received the last one, and I have tiJirned- them down. They all pay three or four times what

Community Services

for sale. So far we have not been able to sell anything, but the public is visiting to inspect the work.

At the moment we a^re out of materials for the girls to ^


work with, but we are praying that the needs of the center will
be met, I feel that within two years the center will be totally

self-supporting. We need about $200,00 per month for two years. If the general public buys the items made, then I am convinced
that the center can be self-supporting in this amount of time. I believe that if we genuinely love and care for people,

they will eventually respond to us. The way the^girls have been responding is worth the hard work involved in working with them. The language they use is improving and they are communicat

ing with each other on a higher level. At least two of the girls are going to church regularly and some of the others are asking questions about the Bible, Can you imagine I6 year old girls

One of the great privileges I have is to witness to the young people daily, V^e are always a&le to apply some Bible truth to every situation that arises. All in all, we are having a great time living and working together. We have prayer meeting and Bible Study every Monday night. V/hen it is my turn, I always tell our congregation that iho of the church is dependent on our personal involvment.

Greetings! from Camp! Things have been going great for us but we are very tired. The summer has been so very busy and we have seen the Lord glorified in so many ways by so many people.

concerning us to please write to our forwarding agent.

By the time

I answer each letter at length from our supporters, I have very little

time to get our news to our agent and our time is so limited. We love each of you and enjoy hearing from you so please understand that

I enjoyed the fellowship with all God's people - especially those that were in college with me. It was greal;. talking over old times. The sermons were thought-provoking and a lot of work was put into them. The singing was glorious! F^y greatest deligjt was in attending the workshops on missions. The ideas that some of us have been talking about was the "in thing." Members of the con^rep-ations visiting the mission field, churches knowing something about the people they support instead of giving them ^10 and not seeing them again, and only supporting the person that the church
is responsible for. To me it makes sense!

The Korth American Convention was a great experience for me.

I attended as many sessions as I could so I was on the go all the time. I bought a lot of books and after camp I am going to do a lot of reading. I am trying out some new concepts in the church- like conversational prayer, prayer groups, etc., and we have all been blessed. The young people are enjoying this new fellowship.

Greetings from the city of love! Today is a beautiful day and the sun is shining in all its glory. People are walking up
and down the streeti some are on their way to work, while others

who are unable to find work are hungry aind are coming to my office asking me for something to eat. I just spok to one young man who
by profession is a painter. He has very good recommendations but

he has not worked for 5 weeks. He really looked hungry but our kitchen fixtiires are still being worked on so our cooking depart ment is still not ready, Ltamber, nails, and all building materials have gone up in prices so I had to lay off the carpenter until
more money can be found to continue the work.

Everything that ypu can think of has gone up.

Last week a

Our Church is here to stay. However, sometimes one gets frustrated becuase everyone is not pulling their weight. We have a few that are really pressing ahead while the others appear not to even want to help themselves. Anyway I am pressing on. We

have a few good students of the Bible here. I have a training program for the young men of the Church on Sunday evenings and have only one student. He is doing well and is preaching some
Sunday nights.

Many of our new Christians have moved to Kingston in search of employment and also to attend school. We miss them, but they are involved with our churches in Kingston. Work is hard to come by in Montego Bay today, so things are tight. The hotels are not
doing so well at this time of the year. We are planning our Annual Christmas Retreat. If all goes well, Dr, Fife from Milligan College will be our guest speaker, . We expect 70-80 people to be in attendance. We transact no business
at our retreats, just Bible study, so we usually have a great

time. We are trying to have all our churches participating in the plannirig but with so many loyalties, that work usually falls on the shoulders of a few of us. Anyway, the Lord has been blessing so many lives that within a few years, attitudes should change. We are still receiving great blessings from our summer

activities. The Granville Bible Club continues to grow and many more children are attending our Sunday morning services, The

children are singing the many many songs that they were taught
by the kids from the States.

We would like to thank our supporters who have stuck with us over the years, The going has not been easys sometimes the

problems have been overwhelming, but through the prayers of our many friends the Lord has carried us through. The devil works

overtime to discourage us but we are fighting him off by living


with the promises of the Lord. So we say a big "THANK YOU" to everyone. Special thanks must go to the Truman, Pierre, arid
Faribault Churches of Christ for Bible School Literature received.

We distribute this literature to many churches, so hundreds of

children and adults are being benifitted by your generosity.

would like to pay tribute to Brother and Sister George Haden; missionaries working in Montego Bay, When we think of mission

aries, we usually thinly of on^s sent by the church to evangelize


supporting churches. Brother and Sister Haden do not fit this

and one who has to return home on furlough and has to report to
description. Brother George, as he is called by all of us, is a sheet metal worker from Lexington, Kentucky. He has been a member of the Northern Heights '"Church of Christ for many, many
years. He came to Jamaica as an employee of Keramons Wilson Const. Co, to work on the Holiday Inn and Inter-Continental Hotels in V
Montego Bay,

The moment the Hadens came to Montego Bay, they went to work. Bro, George teaches a Bible School Class; he is in charge of the

communion meditation on Sunday mornings; assists in the training


program for our teachers; transports children to and from church;

^d shares financially in our church and camp programs.

His home

is open to all and he witnesses to all those with whom he comes in

contact. He preaches when I have to be away. What impresses me the most is that Bro, George and his family became members of the Montego Bay Church of Christ because they will be here for at least two years. He is a great Christian man, one who loves the Lord and he proves it by the way he lives. We need more missionaries like Bro. George, Sister Margaret, as she is called by everyone, is a stabilizer in her own rights. She teaches a Bible School Class, helps with the Granville Bible Club on Saturdays, teaches Daily Vacation Bible School, teaches at our Christian Summer Camp, and transports children to and from^church. She is very dedicated to the Lord's work and is a most gracious hostess. She is interested in everyone who attends church, but shows so much interest in our young
people.

The Lord sent this fine family to Montego Bay to a young congregation when it needed a stabilizing family. With their years of experience in serving the Lord you can imagine how help ful they are to the Lord's work here. They are very beautiful
people.

The Hadens are the proud parents of four children.

The adults have been involved

in our work also. They assist in sending children to camp ^d when they visitJamaica, we are just one big happy family. Their eldest son, Bro. George Haden, Jr., is the minister of the " Blanchard Church of Christ in Blanchard, Pennsylvania, This church
pays for all of our Sunday School literature and has been a real strength to our family and church. We need more missionary families like the Hadens. Maybe there

are other families like this one who can get a job for a few years away from home. Churches like this one would appreciate you so much. May God continue to bless this family and yours too during the coming months if the Lord sees fit to tarry. We count each or

you among our special blessings as we give thanks to God during

this special season of Thanksgiving celebrated by America.

DECEMBER,

1973

Greetings from the city of lrve., We^ are busy, busy, busy. Christmas is a very busy time and we are preparing the children for a special Christmas program. At first we were planning to hold it during the Bible School hour, but we are changing it to Sunday night. We are making a special effort to get the parents
out. This is avery big task but we are trying. The children are bright and willing to learn. We are also preparing special Christmas music for our Sunday morning worship. We plan on about 15 minutes, Pat is doing a good job with the young people.
Our church attendance is picking up.
month of November I spoke on the theme,

Every Sunday we have

at least two new faces, and they return regularly.

During the

"What i t means to be a

Christian," During the month of December, I am speaking on, "Prophecies on the Birth of Christ," Everyone brings their pencils and paper for writing down scriptures. This is proving to be a great asset to Bible learning, I find this study very rewarding,
A special thanks to all our friends in the Greensboro Church for placing their faith in the Lord's work here. It means more

to us than we can sayto know that you are behind us with your pray ers and financial gifts. Also, our heartfelt thanks to everyone

who has seen fit to be our co-laborers in this soul winning effort
for our Lord.
good.

The going has not been easy but the future looks

As we" prepare ourselves to take a new look at the Christmas season, a time of giving, a time of reflection on the Birth of
Christ, I am reminded of these words:

"For Unto us a child is born, A Son is given imto us, and the government shall be upon His shoulders He shall wear the insignia of royalty.
And His name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, Mighty God, Father of Eternity, Prince of Peace."

We do not worship the Baby in Bethlehem's manger, but we worship the Christ of our lives! As we worship Him, let us

remember that, if.we^wan^ knowledge He is the Counsellor,


want reconciliation witb God": He is the Prince of Peace.

If we f
