Preachers To New Locations

J. R. Snell has moved from Butler, Mo., to Laurel, Mississippi.

Dayton, Ohio: "This spring I will bring to a close five years of pleasant work with the Knollwood congregation. The Knollwood congregation is six years old and has been self supporting for over two years. They purchased a building from the Missionary church and completely remodeled it including all new furniture. Two years ago they built a new residence for the evangelist. The church here has had a steady increase. I recommend the church here very highly. The brethren have a mind to work and are very cooperative. The church here will be in need of a preacher in June or July. Any congregation interested in an evangelist may contact me for a speaking engagement and recommendations. Lewis P. Hussel, 2607 Rosemead, Dayton, Ohio, 45432."
