GREETINGS FROM HEADQUARTERS
We are beginning to think about the coming convention as we are nearing the end of Summer, and hope that you had a good one.
Book sales have continued steady every week, and we are continuing to have a demand for the Symbols Of Our Celto-Saxon Heritage and The Story Of Celto-Saxon Israel. We are planning to reprint The Tender Twig in the near future.
We have available copies of the Ensign Message Magazine, published in London, England. If you would like a copy, there is no charge. Please write or call us.
We are sad to report the deaths of Mrs. Connie McWilliams from Windsor,
and Joe Scarff from Calgary, who was a board member for many years.
We send our condolences to their families.
Our Vice-President, J.S. Brooks, had a successful three-week lecture tour of Great Britain in late June and July, speaking before B.I. groups in seven cities, including the week-long High Leigh conference of the Covenant People’s Fellowship. In-between, a few days were also spent doing research in the British Library, as well.
We had an enjoyable trip to Burnaby, British Columbia, for the 100th anniversary celebration of the Association of the Covenant People. In the picture on the bottom left of this page is shown Brooks Alden moderating the panel discussion with speakers (left to right) J.S. Brooks, Allen Campbell, David McLure, Karl Schott, and Charles Jennings. On the lower right, the convention was attended by over 90 people over the three days in August. We were glad to have several of our members in attendance.
The fall convention dates are September 18, 19, 20 at the downtown Bond Hotel in Toronto. The speakers are Pastor David Aimer, Secretary of the BIWF; Michael Clark, President of the BIWF; J.S. Brooks; Kent Purvis; and Doug Nesbit. Contact the BIWF-Canada for more details and room rates. The meetings will be held at BIWF headquarters.
We hope that this newsletter finds you all in good health as we trust in God for His guidance in these troubled times.
Sincerely, Mary F. Bennett, President
