TOMMY, my six-year-old grandson, preached one of the summer's best sermons, or so it seemed to me.

How shall a Bible worker successfully carry on when left alone with a new church at the close of an effort, with not a single member who has previously been an Adventist, not one who can play or sing, not one who has been trained to act as Sabbath school superintendent, or who has ever taught in a Sabbath school; where opposition is so strong that people are timid, and hesitate to stand for God; and where most of the members are out of work, and can give little or nothing toward church expenses?
