7 Harris, C.C. Africa Has Me Hooked CC Harris Missionary Evangelism Missions
Author Published 1970-01-01 Pamphlet Used: Good Pamphlet Trade Paperback 
This paperback booklet was published in 1970 by the Author with 54 pages. The text is unmarked. The binding is sound. The cover is moderately worn around the edges. The pages are toned with scattered foxing. Random excerpt from the text: From the beginning Alatanga was quick to respond to the moving of the Holy Spirit. He entered the chapel service with enthusiasm. He spoke at the prison farm to the inmates and fourteen of them gave their hearts to the Lord.I had managed to send three boys to Bible school, and went after them at the close of the term. When I put them off at their villages I told them, "You are on your own now. Put into practice what you have learned and if you need my help just send me word."Alatanga sent me word in two weeks to come to his village for a service. He had gathered a large crowd. When services were over, he said, "We are ready to build a church in our village and want you to help us. We will do all the work, you just come and show us what and how to do it."I agreed and came out early the next day to find that they had been working since daylight. These people built their church in record time. A building 28 ft. by 60 ft. A thousand people came to the dedication and we baptized ninety-nine.I was passing near Alatanga's village one Monday and drove upon him walking towards home. I picked him up and took him the rest of the way. When I let him out I asked, "How many times did you preach yesterday?"He looked at me and spoke apologetically, "I only preached three times, I had two other appoiments to preach, but my feet became sick and I couldn't go on."I looked down at his feet. He was barefooted with the exception of some old rags that he had tied around them. They were swollen and I looked closer. His feet were cracked between the toes and blood was oozing out through the dirty rags. He said. "If I just had a bicycle I could reach those villages."I fought back the tears as the Holy Spirit impressed me with the Scripture, "How beautiful are the feet that bring the gospel of good news." I said to him, "I'll try to find you a bicycle when I get home."When I reached home that evening the meal was ready. While we were eating our dinner, I related my experience of the day. My oldest daughter, Rebecca, was home from boarding school. She was only ten years old, she spoke up, "Dad you know the new bicycle you bought me, if you don't care I'll give that to Alatanga." Everyone at the table was crying. It was hard to tell whether we were crying for joy or for the pain in our heart.As the plane made a turn, I was able to see our mission station. A funny incident that happened to my wife flashed through my mind. While I was building our house, I hired a little boy by the name of Benjeman to do my cleaning. When my wife saw him, she was immediately attached to him and he went to work for her.One day my wife heard a loud crashing noise in the living room. She rushed in to find one of her nice table lamps that she had brought from home lying in the floor broken into hun¬dreds of little pieces. She looked over at Benjeman who was dusting the furniture, as though nothing had happened. My wife was mad and she spoke sharply, "Benjeman, what happened here?" "How did my lamp get broken? Who knocked it off?"He looked up at her, trying to be nonchalant, and said, "Mama. it just died by itself."At this, my wife gathered up the pieces and glued them back together.I got a glimpse at the post office and remembered a telegram that caused me some anxious moments. One of the first things that I did on arriving at Njombe was rent a post office box. I didn't go to the post office very often because all our mail still went to Mbeya. For some reason I felt urged to go to the post office to check on my mail. A telegram was in my box. My wife had sent it the day before, saying that our little daughter had been bitten by a village dog, and she was unable to find him or get anyone to help.I left for home early the next morning and when I arrived J took Benjeman in search for the dog because he had seen him. We found the dog at a village near by and tried to catch him but he was too mean. I went to the police for assistance. The police officer never stopped his looking at files while I told him my distress, he just said, "I can't come today, I'm a little short-handed."His attitude angered me and I spoke with anger in my voice, "My daughter has been bitten by that dog four days ago, and I'll give you just thirty minutes to come out after the dog. If you aren't there by then, "I'll kill him myself."The officer looked up at me then. He saw something that prompted him to action, he said, "Hold on there, I'll be right out and take care of the dog for you."The dogs head was sent to Dar Es Salaam for a test. We waited as long as we could for an answer. Finally the doctor said, "We just can't wait any longer. We must start the anti-rabies shots." We started them thinking that we would hear every day, but three months after the shots were finished, the news came. The test showed positive.Debbie survived the ordeal without any trouble, but was to suffer an even greater shock after we moved to Njombe.

8 Hocking, William Ernest. Re-Thinking Missions William Hocking Missionary Wok Principles & Administration
Harper & Brothers 1932-01-01 Hardcover Used: Acceptable Hardcover Standard Hardcover 
This STATED FIRST EDITION hardcover book was published in 1932 by Harper & Brothers with 365 pages. The text contains 75 pages with scattered notations, notes and underlining. The covers are heavily rubbed along the edges. The corners are bumped and the tips rubbed through. The title label on the spine panel is heavily rubbed and scuffed. The binding is weak as the hinges are cracked or cracking in several areas. No dust jacket. The pages are toned with moderately scattered foxing. Previous owners name present. Excerpt from the Foreword:IT is doubtful whether any enterprise dependent entirely on continuous giving has so long sustained the interest of so many people as has the foreign mission. Its continuity has not been that of invested funds, but of perennially renewed sacrifice springing from persistent belief in its objects. In an era during which channels for giving to beneficent purposes have multiplied almost beyond reckoning, this enterprise has until very recent years not only held its own, but shown remarkable growth. Relying as it has upon the steadfastness of certain attitudes of mind and will, its very magnitude has rendered it vulnerable to any change which might affect those attitudes. In the last few years there have been signs of such change. The old fervor appears to have been succeeded in some quarters by questionings if not by indifference. Subscriptions have been falling off. Problems of the utmost gravity face mission boards in nearly all fields. There is a growing conviction that the mission enterprise is at a fork in the road, and that momentous decisions are called for.In January 1930, a group of laymen of one denomination met in New York to consider these problems. It appeared to this group that the situation demanded a new and thorough¬going study of the basis and purport of missions and of their operation. But since these questions were of common concern to many churches, invitations were sent to laymen of other denominations to join in the study. As a result, seven denominations, each unofficially represented by a group of five men and women, joined to constitute the thirty-five Directors of the Laymen's Foreign Missions Inquiry. These denominations are Baptist (Northern), Congregational, Methodist Episcopal, Presbyterian Church in U. S. A., Protestant Episcopal, Reformed Church in America, United Presbyterian. The chairmen of the denominational groups form an Executive Committee of seven.Since the Inquiry was to include an objective review of tin: presuppositions of the entire enterprise, it was felt essential that it should not be carried on through agencies commuted committed to its promotion. The initiative, direction and personnel of the Inquiry must therefore be independent of the mission boards. At the same time it was equally essential to have their full and hearty cooperation: the problems were common, the skilled knowledge and experience were theirs. This cooperation has been given without stint and has facilitated every step in the planning and execution of the Inquiry during the two years of its work. The same is to be said of the International Missionary Council, both in America and in Enghmd. In pieparing our way in India, British members rendered especially gracious aid.It was decided to restrict the Inquiry to India, Burma, China and Japan. It was evident that there were two types of work to be done. There must be an impartial and scientifically directed accumulation of data so that the judgment iradied should be based on pertinent and accurately staled I'm ts; and there must be an appraisal of these fads in the light of the widest possible consideration of the meaning of the mission enterprise and of the world conditions in which it is now, and is to be, carried out. It was believed that with the aid of data already available a corps of men and women especially trained in such study might in the course of a year ptovidr in outline the requisite factual basis; and that directed by this woik a second group might during another year ol thought and observation reach well-founded judgments, not on the entire work of missions, but on those critical questions which arc: determining the attitude of the laymen of our (linn lies and of the wider public.The first stage of the study was placed in the hands of the Institute of Social and Religious Research, (legitming Lite in 1930, the Institute sent a corps of research workers to the designated fields under the supervision of Cairn M. lusher, General Director. The group in India and Burma and was headed by C. Luther Fry, that in China by H. Paul Douglass, and that in Japan by Harvey H. Guy. An extraordinary work was achieved within the time prescribed. By September 1931, printed reports were placed in the hands of the Commission of Appraisal, together with much supplementary matter indicating a widespread interest on the part of missionaries and nationals in the undertaking, and a sympathetic recognition of its timeliness and value.The second stage of the Inquiry was entrusted to a Commission of Appraisal of fifteen members, the Commission now reporting. The terms of reference of this Commission are defined in the following statement of its purpose:"To aid laymen to determine their attitude toward Foreign Missions, by reconsidering the functions of such Missions in the world of today. With this general aim,a.To make an objective appraisal of their activities in thefields visited;b.To observe the effect of Missions on the life of the peoplesof the Orient;c.In the light of existing conditions and profiting, thoughnot bound, by missionary experience, to work out a prac¬tical program for today, offering recommendations as tothe extent to which missionary activities of every sortshould be continued or changed."In choosing the Commissioners, the Directors of the Inquiry were guided by the view that each member of the Commission should weigh the general problems confronting missions, and that each should also have a special concern*n some aspect of the work of missions—evangelistic, administrative, educational, medical, etc. There was no thought of a mechanical division of mental function as between the finders of fact and the Commission of Appraisal. The preliminary judgments of the earlier workers have been of the greatest service to the Commission, and the Commissioners extended by their own travel their basis of fact and observation. Without the prior study by the Institute, itself a significant work of research, the labors of the Commission would not have been possible.

Bishop Patteson Martyr of Melanesia Anglican Missionary, Jesse Page
9 Jesse Page Bishop Patteson Martyr of Melanesia Anglican Missionary
S. W. Partridge & Co 1890 Hardcover Used: Good Hardcover 
This hardcover book was published circa 1890 by S. W. Partridge & Co with 192 pages. The text is unmarked. The binding is somewhat weak as the binding is cracking at the title page and rear hinge. The corners are bumped. The pages are toned. Previous owners name present. Page 15-16 is deatached from the binding. The spine is slightly tilted. THE lives of some men are an atmosphere into which we cannot enter without feeling braced and invigorated for the battle of life. This tonic influence is not to be attributed to their intellectual gifts, still less to the wealth of their earthly honour and station ; it is rather in the fact that we recognise in them the marks of a real manhood, the unswerving allegiance to the right, the singleness of aim in the path of duty, the human tenderness which links their hearts with ours, the peace which is born of faith, the courage which grows in quietness, the Christ-power transfiguring every detail of their life among us, Such was John Coleridge Patteson. In tracing the steps of his years, one is constantly reminded that they tend upward; from a starting-point of no special advantage or even promise, it is the gradual and noble development of one of the purest and most heroic characters of our time. There is attraction in his thorough manliness, not merely in its embodiment of physical pluck and nerve, but in that large-hearted truthfulness which grasps your hand and compels you. utterly to believe in him. He lifts you from a pitiful conventional level, with its compromises and un- realities, and bids you share with him that inspiring mountain air of God's grace and favour. Patteson shows you that after all Christianity is a real vitalising and saving power in man. This is powerfully evidenced in the history of his own character, in which the natural preferences and tempting ambitions of a cultured and home-loving mind were entirely lost in the one absorbing and divine aim, which can best be expressed in the words of the great missionary Apostle, " For me to live is Christ, and to die is gain." The praise of men counted as nothing with him ; like every true worker he knew well enough what need there was for humility, and how vast and pressing were the duties yet to do. One is convinced irresistibly that this man through all held up because he was divinely upborne. His character is one of thosr which must compel the admiration of the unbeliever, a living epistle not to be gainsaid or disputed even by the enemies of the Lord whom he served. To the mere professional Christians it must be a revelation, almost startling, of a power of which they have absolutely noexperience. To those who have "the secret of the Lord," it is a precious testimony, the setting of a martyr hand to that seal which affirms that God is true. The poor heathen for whose sake he gave up all, not sparing life itself, were perhaps the most unpromising material to be found in the wide world for conversion into citizens of the kingdom of heaven. What hope was there for a horde of cannibals, red-handed from the murder of white men who had ventured upon their coral strand ? But " the things that are impossible with men, are possible with God," and the faith of Patteson was being constantly strengthened by witness- ing the spiritual beauty and fidelity of those who in due time sat at the feet of Christ clothed and in their right mind. " Light is breaking over Melanesia," were his words of hope and thankfulness. It would be indeed difficult to question either the call to missionary enterprise or its record of grand victories in face of such a man and such a work. The world wants more of such men, though possibly there are many unrecognised amongst us, the worship of whose grand service, the sacrifice of whose lives, is a perpetual martyrdom, known only to God. In these pages I have striven to show Patteson as he was, in heart and mind, life and death ; how imper- fectly this aim has been achieved, and how blurred at best are the outlines of the portraiture, the writer knows only too well. In again and again going over the records of this life worth living, the subject has been a growing inspiration to me, and I shall be thank- ful if in even a smaller measure that inspiration may be shared by my readers, I desire gratefully to acknowledge the kindness of Miss Yonge in giving me permission to make the extracts from the letters and journals of Patteson which appear in this volume. The perusal of that admirable biography of her illustrious kinsman, with which she has enriched our literature, has been a source of un- speakable pleasure and profit to me. My thanks also are due to my friend Mr. H. B. Wilkins for the loan of several valuable books of reference, and to Mr. Herbert Williams, B.A., for sketches and interesting particulars of Patteson's Devonshire memorials. I should like also to add that from the Church Missionary Society, the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts, and the London Missionary Society, I have received courteous attention.

Mother Eaton of India by Basil Miller 3rd ed Nazarene Christian Missions Biography, Miller, Basil
11 Miller, Basil Mother Eaton of India by Basil Miller 3rd ed Nazarene Christian Missions Biography
B. N. Robertson Company 1953-01-01 Third Edition Paperback Used: Good Paperback Standard Hardcover

The cover is moderately rubbed with some toning around the edges. Previous owners name present. The cover is moderately worn around the edges with creasing to the corners. Random Excerpt from the text:The third and large sphere of Mother Eaton's missionary career hinged upon a tiny incident. This is many times the case in God's grandest tapestry of life. When He would work a noble design in the pattern of one's career, the events from which that career springs are often insignificant. With correspondence increasing, obligations enlarging, burdens for India's millions resting with heavy hands upon the missionary's heart, the heat of the lower section where she lived became almost unbearable, and for a time it seemed as if Mother Eaton's strength would give way. She began asking God to direct her to a cooler climate, where her love labors for India's "brown lambs" might be continued. A friend, Grace Wood, by chance spent a short vacation at Bangalore, South India, where the cooling breezes worked a miracle in her depleted strength. Remembering Mother Eaton's grave burden, she wrote a short note saying:"Do come to this lovely half-hill station to carry on your work. God will lengthen your days of service in this cooler clime."This was the incident upon which Mother Eaton's future career was to pivot. These few words were to open a new avenue of challenge, which the great heart of the missionary was to accept. Praying over the invi¬tation, the Batons went to Bangalore with the thought at least of an explorative trip, for nothing permanent had formed in their minds.Mother Eaton says, "However, we had not been there long until we understood why the Lord had brought us thither. We found there a class of the poorer of the poor, called 'Untouchables or outcasts.' We met here an Indian doctor who was deeply interested in this class. We were so happy to meet an Indian brother with a love for his own suffering people."Here Mother Eaton saw the degradation of India at its worst, unguarded, putrid state. In an article in one of her earlier papers, she described the condition of India's seven million outcasts. She says, "One born in this caste is always an outcast. He can never rise any higher. No matter how ambitious he may be, or how much he may aspire to a higher life or greater things, no matter how studious he may be, he always remains a despised outcast and a destitute beggar." Thank God the missionary was to live to see the day when the distinction of caste was broken of India, at least from a legal status. The Manu, the Hindu sacred book says concerning the outcast:"The abode of the outcast must be out of town. They must not have the use of entire vessels. Their sole wealth must be dogs and asses. Their clothes must be mantles of the diseased, their dishes for food broken pots, their ornaments rusty iron, their home but to roam from place to place. Let no man who regards his duties civil or religious, hold any intercourse with them.....

Preface:I do not presume to be a writer, and would not have attempted this book except upon request from the Commission on Foreign Mission Study Literature, and for the glory of God. It is intended as a reading book for the Nazarene Missionary Societies. We commit it to them, hoping that those who read it may be aroused to a greater interest in the cause of missions around the world. We want them to become better acquainted with our missionary work in the Philippine Islands, and to pray more for us.I want to express my appreciation to my fellow mis¬sionaries for their assistance in preparing the material for this book. Rev. John W. Pattee has written much of Chapter VII; his help is greatly appreciated. As another has said, "My wife has always said it could be done, and has stood by me until it was." I owe my wife a great debt of gratitude, for she has rewritten much that I have written so that it would have a smoother flow of thought. Rev. and Mrs. Roy Copelin have helped proofread the manuscript and have offered many helpful suggestions. Mrs. Katherine Schubert, a Methodist missionary of the Far East Broadcasting Company, has done the final proofreading of the manuscript. Rev. Jose Lallana has retyped the whole manuscript in its final form. He also gathered for me the material on the superstitions of the Filipino people. To all these I want to offer my sincere thanks.We covet your prayers that God will bless the work that has been started in the Philippine Islands for the cause of holiness and to further the kingdom of God.JOSEPH S.

Description: PREFACEIT is with great pleasure that we recommend to the Christian public this translation of Father Daniel s Life of Alexis Clerc. There is much in this Life which speaks to the great needs of our day. The bright example of self-denial and heroic virtue cannot fail to move many hearts whose aspirations are for eternity. The prevailing disposition of the age is altogether to ignore God, as if his law and will had nothing to do with the end of human life or the happiness of man kind. He is driven from society, from education, from science, and from the counterfeit which the world dig nifies by the name of religion. Self is made the end in the way of pleasure, avarice, or ambition. Men would live as long as they may, and then sink into the grave without hope of the future, or with the denial of immortality. And even where there is a certain belief in God, what prospect for happiness has the victim of passion who has never known the discipline of obedience ? Heaven is nothing to those who have placed their high est happiness in self- gratification. We have seen the fruits of unbridled passion in the hatred of God and of all who professed obedience to his law. The ever-liv-ing Church of Christ goes quietly on amid all the tumults or the world and the conflicts of evil. She alone speaks the words of truth; she alone can heal the wounds of infidelity or sin. Her life is above the violence of her enemies, and in this divine life she continues the mission of her great Founder, giving good for evil, and gathering in the waste places of earth a harvest for eternity. Nothing really lives that she does not touch, and all she touches is radiant of immortality. Dark was the hour when the spirits of evil broke loose ; and malignant hatred of God held sway. The age of the martyrs returned, and patience, gentleness, pity, and fidelity unto death were the only answer to insatiate nrfalice and demoniac rage. " The Good Shepherd gave his life for the sheep"; so in his footsteps ever arise the children of his love to bear his cross and gladly die at its foot. The sad days of the Commune were days of triumph for the Church, as the blood of martyrs is the glory of her crown. The reader of this Life will learn these and many truths which may quicken in his heart the love of faith and all its supernatural fruits. Without faith life is not worth living, and even in this material age sanctity is within our reach, and the Mother of saints has children of whom she need not be ashamed. The strife of the Commune is not over, and the red hand of infidelity is not yet stayed. Even in our own beloved country may come the hour when law and order shall sink be neath the violence of unbelief, when hatred of God shall make victims of the innocent and true. Unhappy France has yet to atone for many sins, and while she suffers, the blood of her martyrs pleads to the Sacred Heart for mercy. Father Alexis Clerc was only one of many chosen souls whom the illustrious Society of Jesus has given to the world. He has spoken by words of faith, mercy, and courage, by deeds of self-denial and patience, by a life given for the salvation of souls, and by the death of a martyr for Christ. With the sainted Olivaint and his companions before the throne of the Precious Blood he will intercede for his brethren, for France he loved so well, and for us who will seek by his example to be true to God and to walk in the blessed and narrow way of faith. It is strange that the martyrs of the Commune are so little known, and that the story of their death has produced so little visible fruit. Catholics hardly realize how much they owe to these confessors of the faith, while many Protestants who could not applaud the violence of persecution are perhaps unconsciously encouraging principles which lead to the denial of authority, and therefore to the reign of infidelity. The " Chamber of the Martyrs 7 at Paris, with the relics of their sufferings and death, is a scene which speaks louder than any words, and sets in open light the two extremes of mortal conflict, the charity divine which bleeds unto death, and the rage of baffled but still malignant passion. May God increase our faith and give us grace, that, "having so great a cloud of witnesses, we may lay aside every weight and sin which surrounds us, and run with patience to the fight proposed to us, looking unto Jesus."

Snapshots from the North Pacific Bishop William Ridley British Columbia BC Canada Missions, Ridley, William
15 Ridley, William Snapshots from the North Pacific Bishop William Ridley British Columbia BC Canada Missions
Church Missionary Society 1904-01-01 2nd Hardcover Used: Acceptable Hardcover 
This hardcover book was published in 1904 by the Church Missionary Society with 200 pages. Ex-library copy from Redcliffe College with several library stamps including one on the foredge. The text is unmarked. The binding is sound. No dust jacket. The foredge and the first section of the top page edges are dampstained. The front enpaper is lacking and the frontispiece has been attached to the front pastedown in its stead. The spine panel is sunned. The pages are toned with scattered foxing. The corners are bumped. The cover is moderately soiled. Random Excerpt from the Text (Pages 48-49):" Have we not good reason for rejoicing over what God has wrought ? May we not count our treasures and boldly challenge those who trust in other methods of elevating the uncivilized races of the earth, to show results equal to those consequent on preaching Apostolic doctrine ? The Bible is the Book for perishing souls. 1^ words are still winged with a Divine power to convert, to build up, and to ripen for eternity. We could not do without it, and those who try will waste their pains."The following letter is not in chronological order, but as it is occupied with the subject of the response to the Indian Chief's appeal it seems better to place it here. By the time that the Bishop could use the funds so generously provided, a Canadian Society had undertaken the work, but it will be seen from a later letter that the money was applied for the furtherance of the Gospel in another direction :—" Metlakatla, June 4th, 1891." The telegram about the Indian Chief's appeal reached me late on. April 1st; on the 3rd the steamer Evangeline was ready for sea. A hurricane squall, worthy of the tropics, on the next day, did fearful damage along the coast, and threatened to sink the ship at her moorings. The 5th was Sunday ; on Monday she sailed and had a fine passage. As I was crippled with rheumatism, I sent, as the Church's messenger, the best man I could find. Besides a letter to the chief, I had carefully prepared him for his embassy, and he fulfilled it excellently." Five months had then elapsed since the appeal came, and I thought it possible that as it failed here it might be repeated in some other quarter. This had happened in the case of the most southerly of the three villages. Its chief had gone beyond the bounds of my diocese, and he was persuaded to migrate with his tribe, and building materials were given him and others to erect new houses at a Christian mission station far to the south, and worked by another Society. As soon as the news arrived that I could help them, the migrants were for returning to their old homes and putting themselves under our instruction. But I had told Charles Eyan, our messenger, that in such, a ; case I should consider them already provided for, and would not disturb such plans. Then he retraced his steps some fifty-five miles to the nearest of the three villages from which the appeal was made. He had found the most distant village permanently deserted, as it appeared from the quite empty and dismantled houses. At the nearest a few old people remained, the whole able-bodied section of the community having gone off to their hunting. In this village there was great joy at the prospect of having a missionary. The chief was away, but the letter I had written was explained and left behind for him. He may not return for months, and then may find a difficulty in meeting with a literate person to write for him his reply." In the meantime I am looking for a suitable missionary to break ground there in the autumn. The present prospect is the inviting of the Indians of the two nearest villages and the building up a much smaller work than would have been likely had I been sooner in the field. That all who sought the blessing of the Gospel will now be brought under its saving influence must be a source of gladness to those hearts that have yearned for their salvation."You now see how the matter stands. If it be asked whether it is prudent to lay out money on the rescue of so small a community, only perhaps between 100 and 150 souls, I would reply by asking what would be thought of the Government if, hearing of so many starving to death, they did not succour them promptly ? Souls appeal to Christians because Jesus died for them. I know no grander or more apostolic missionary than Bishop French. Would ho not gladly lay down his life to win an Arab for Christ ? What would he not do or dare to win a hundred ? Let but a man be sent by the Holy Ghost, and I shall expect to see these remnants of once powerful tribes united in the bonds of the Gospel.

Few, if any, missionaries have a better story to tell than Rev. and Mrs. Gordon Hedderly Smith. And they tell it well. In this book, The Blood Hunters, and in Gongs in the Night by Mrs. Smith, is unfolded the moving story of a pioneer missionary work among the tribespeople of French Indo-China.This is good reading — from beginning to end. The book is full of daring adventure and interesting experiences encoun-tered by the author and his family, in jungles that abound in tigers, wild elephants, gaur, and other beasts of the forest. But it is richest in the thrilling accounts of long neglected tribespeople who turned from their background of dark superstition and savagery, toward the light of the gospel.

PREFACE: IT has been a great pleasure to write for those who collected the money for building the John Williams, and who meet the cost of working it, the following brief record of a delightful tour. Our Mission steamer cost a great deal to build, and she costs twice as much as the old barque to maintain. But my voyage made three things very clear:—(i) Such a vessel is necessary if the work of the Mission is to be properly done; (2) the work is worth all the expenditure; (3) the vessel is admirably suited for the purpose for which she has been built. I wish all who will read this book could have shared in the many and varied interests of the trip it describes, and could see with their own eyes the wonderful change which the Gospel is making among the South Sea Islanders. As this is not possible, I hope the story of my travels will prove interesting, and will
