One of the world’s beauty spots is Cape Formentor on the island of Majorca, an hour’s scenic drive from Palma. There, for ten days after the World Congress on Evangelism, we combined some postponed vacation with editing of the post-congress publication, the two-volume One Race, One Gospel, One Task. The W. Stanley Mooneyhams (who with their four children moved to Berlin for a year to coordinate the congress) and the Henrys (who haven’t known a dull moment during twenty-seven years of togetherness) arrived with two typewriters and a satchel of manuscripts—to the amazement of some guests and the despair of our wives. We alternated relaxation at the close of Majorca’s busy tourist season (when rates drop 25 per cent) with editorial work that hopefully will get the two congress volumes off the press, possibly in paperback as well as clothbound editions, before Easter.
Dr. Mooneyham flew to Miami (after a detour to Berlin) for the annual planning meeting of the Billy Graham team and while there was felled by a major coronary thrombosis. I got word in Portugal at a meeting of Christian businessmen who united in fervent prayer in his behalf. Stan is now out of an oxygen tent and hopes to be out of St. Francis Memorial Hospital, Miami Beach, before Christmas for three cautious months of rest.
