Dear Friends:

Thank you for you packages of Used Greeting Cards received this week. These will bring great happiness to the children of Forrosa, and to those who are ill. We will have a Bible verse printed in Chinese character on each one before they are given out, so that they carry God's message too.

We believe that these bright cards bring an unspoken message from the land across the seas to the people here which tells of the love and unselfishness of those who took time to send them. Little children running home from Sunday School with a bright card in hand and happiness in their hearts are part of the result. The leper patients and the aboriginal patients receive them too, and it cheers them. Always with the gay greeting card is also the love of God printed in Chinese for all who can read.

We thank you for having a share in this happy part of our work.

In His Name we thank you and in the name of the humble people who will receive them.

Yours in His service,

Lillian R. Dickson
