The U. S. Congress on Evangelism in Minneapolis was a thrilling experience. The Holy Spirit was present in power to bless, and all of us were moved. Our readers should take note of the lead editorial (p. 32), in which we evaluate the results of the congress.

We rejoice that more and more of God’s people are praying for a great spiritual awakening.
