Love Feast in a Sod House.
Bro. A. S. Culp closed a series of meetings last Friday night, preparatory to our love feast. We hope and trust there was much good seed sown for the cause of Christ.
We met and had our Communion last Saturday, July 21. Brethren, we didn’t meet in the big stone basement under the large churchhouse which occupies a pleasant as well as a prominent situation on the sloping green hillside, overarched by the drooping branches of the large forest tress, but it was in Bro. John Leshe’s big sod house, one-half miles southwest of town, which hasn’t the stream of fresh, cool water going rippling by, as some of your eastern churches have, but is surrounded by nature’s far-outreaching sod. Bro. Henry Longanecker preached to a well-filled house in the afternoon, at which time five were received by letter.
Brethren Longanecker and Petrie as minister have found a welcome location, as well as others who have or will come and unite with us in reaping the golden grain for the one who has truly said. “The harvest is great, but the laborers are few.” Ocia C. Lanham. Bowbells, N. Dak., July 24.
