Excerpt from The Gospel in All Lands
Bishop Hartzell reports: We have on this field atnew and Old Umtali two men and their wives, a physician, whose wife is still in Chicago a trained nurse, one matron, three white men helpers, and twelve native helpers. Of the workers nine were sent out from America by the Missionary Society.
We have at New Umtali four lots in the center of the town worth school furniture and outfit worth several hundred dollars; a school that is a success, and a church that is making a good begin ning. This work among white people in a short timeowill be self-supporting. We are the only non conformist church in a young town of 600 whites in the center of a large gold belt, where several mines are being worked. The government appropriates a dollar for every one I put into teachers, equipments, or buildings for school work, and the patrons pay for each pupil a month.
