Are there faithful Christians in the Snyder, Texas, area who are interested in helping start a church in this town which will accept the Scriptures as their only rule of faith and practice? We are so tired of the schemes of men being promoted under the guise of their being "the work of the church"! If there be those who are interested, please contact us.

"We are trying very hard to get a faithful congregation established here in Biloxi, Mississippi. We presently are meeting in the home of brother LeRoy Henry in Gulfport, which is about 12 miles from Biloxi. His address is 2106 Forty-first Avenue, Gulfport, Mississippi. We feel certain there are other Christians in the service here, but have been unable to contact them as yet. We would be most grateful for any help that can be given."
