Give them a cup of cold water in Christ's name, and never fear the consequences." In the year 1935, in an hour of great need, my wife and I were given "a cup of cold water" in the form of a Sentinel by a friend whom I have known since boyhood.

I was told I needed a change of climate to regain my health, as I had tuberculosis.
