DO YOU have problems with family finance and balancing the budget? These are vital topics for every home and require a sensible approach for the maintenance of security and happiness in the family.

THE SOUL-WINNING program of our evangelist husbands is the most important and most joyous part of their ministry. Since their career is our career, we should consider their evangelistic program our evangelistic program. There is an old adage: "As unto the bow the cord is, so unto the man is woman, Though she bends him, she obeys him."

Located in Entre Rios province, among rolling hills, fifteen miles from the nearest town, the seventy-year-old college offered the quiet environment best suited for studying. . .
But what about the work of our church in Africa? From the viewpoint of accomplishments, we can pat ourselves on the back. From the viewpoint of what remains to be done, we can only fall to our knees and beg God for help and power to finish the task.
