Description

Excerpt from Twelfth Annual Report of the Woman's Presbyterian Board of Missions of the Northwest, 1883 There are many indications at the present time that missions are very popular. The press favors them; rich men make large donations and leave liberal legacies for their support, while foreign rulers are not only willing, but some are asking that their people may be taught Christianity. Queens are becoming nursing mothers of the church. The royal message from England is: We Should wish it generally known that we sympathize with every effort made to relieve the suffering state of the women Of India. A report was recently printed Of the fortieth anniversary Of a missionary society composed Of the clerks in a large mercantile house in London, the contributions reaching $600 for the last year. A porter in a Mexican mission, with a monthly salary Of $20, 'has built at San Lorenzo a church for the free use of the mission and a house for the native preacher. A noble woman Of our own number has, during the last year, assumed the entire support of two missionaries; and a gentleman in one of our western States has contributed as a memorial (better than marble Shaft) for his wife. The Mite Society has increased its contributions. SO all classes would seem to be heart and hand in mission work. A review Of the year will show if we, as a Board, are fully abreast with the times.
