On "bended knee, our Thanks will he directed to our Lord For the workings of His precious Love and for His Church restored* A working Church, whose Loving search for souls still lost in sin

Our Dear Friends in Christ:

We are using this means to thank you for your patience during the months in which

YOU didn't hear from us, and to explain our delay in getting out a newsletter.
At the moment, we are in the process of reorganizing the West German Christian

Mission in which the entire Mission, including the Forwarding Agent, is being placed
under the direction and supervision of the Buchanan Elders# This has necessitated our drafting a new constitution and by-laws. This change over has nothing to do with
THE dismissal OF THE TWO GERMAN SECRETARIES.

Our PERSONAL AND HEART-FELT THANKS IS BEING EXTENDED TO MR. & MRS. COLEMAN T.

Sparrow for their having served the Mission so well during the past ten years. Since THE Mission has grown so much, the work load was getting to be too great for one
person to handle.

St., Buchanan, Michigan 49107.

After April 20, 1966 please send all,contributions to; Mrs. Lloyd Judy, 318 Lake
Praying God's richest blessings upon you and yours, and sending our Christian

Love and God's richest blessings to all.

"NEWS BEHIND OUR NEWSLETTER" BY ILA BELLE


We would like for our readers to know
THOSE BEHIND THE SCENE

those who are working to get the WEST


GERMAN CHRISTIAN MISSION NEWS in the mail. First of all, the news is

written in Frankfurt, Germany, with Mr. Fausz doing the art and lay-out
work. The film is sent to Mr. Robert

Green, minister at the Taylorville, Illinois, Church of Christ, who in turn

prints the newsletter. We appreciate so very much the wonderful job Mr.
Green is doing.
The Missions Committee and volun teers from the First Christian Church

Michigan City, Indiana, (Miss Henning's living-link church) address the

newsletters by machine and by hand. Mrs. Irene Agemy is in charge of the mailing aind we are so very thankful for her many hours of labor in keep ing the mailing list up to date and su pervising the mail-out. Her regular

Audrey Lane, Irene Agemy, Marietta Hubbard

So our hats off to Robert Green, Taylorville, Illinois; Mrs. Agemy, the Missions

mission field. Their sharing in this way provides the opportunity for more souls to be reached with the Gospel message through the printed page and radio.

GERMANY

bv Ed Fausz

Both Joy and Sorrow can be found within the boundaries of Germany at Christ
mas, because the nation is split in to by the iron curtain. This unnatural di vision is separating a people and preventing their having fellowship with other
members of their families and friends. Christmas is a time for fellowship &

(as the Germans would say:} "Gemutlichkeit!" The very first Christmas Eve brought Heaven and Earth together, as both the angelic host of heaven joining the humble shepherds of the field, filled the earth with their singing as they worshipped and praised our Father in Heaven \ Although we cannot travel and visit our radio listeners in East Germany, they are being extended an opportunity to join us in our singing and praise! Msinya soul is arrested and imprisoned, however, because of their Faith in God! We who live in freedom, cannot always understand just how terribly persecuted & down-trodden these people are. It is hard for us to visualize the price of real Faith which is being daily tested in blood and persecution!
There is one thing, however, of which they can be certain! That one thing is the HOPE which we have in Christ, Jesus! For Christ, our Saviour, is both

the "fulfiller" and the "fulfillment" of our Hope!

This same, wonderful

and

God - given HOPE has been promised to all who will accept Him on His terms!
