December 31, 1947 Box 111, Pasadena, California
Dear Co-worker for God:
I have just returned to Pasadena from a five-day’s trip back to Eugene, Oregon, and my heart has sunk as near the depths of despair as is possible for one of FAITH, at what I have found on returning.
It seems that due to the biggest Christmas-shopping spree in history, most of our co-workers and listeners have FORGOTTEN both gifts and obligations to CHRIST! And the financial condition of God’s precious work has taken a nose-dive straight down toward a CRASH that will mean the END OF IT in five days’ time unless by faith in God and enough of our faithful co-workers coming to the rescue immediately, the crash can be averted and the most important work on this earth SAVED.
