Prayer, Patience, and Persistence Built a Much—needed Sunday School

A branch of The Mother Church in England reports that Sunday School was held in the afternoon over a period of years. There had been a long-felt need to change it to the same time as the morning service in order that children from outlying districts could attend the Sunday School while their parents were at the service. To accomplish this a new Sunday School building would be required.

In time a Sunday School building committee was appointed and a fund established. The committee investigated the several types of structures available. It reported to the church members that the most feasible proposition was a sectional wooden building on a brick foundation which could be erected on the adjacent land, a part of the church property. The committee placed before the members the estimated cost of this project; but the idea was not supported, since the cost was much in excess of the funds on hand.

At the commencement of the following church year the same committee was reappointed. It seemed plain, however, to this committee that little if anything tangible could be undertaken until the building fund had grown appreciably. Several inspirational meetings were then held which resulted in awakened and grateful thinking. It was realized that the building fund now on hand was in reality an expression of Love's supply, which had been bestowed upon the church because of God's unfailing goodness.
