consecrated to the work of saving souls.
Pray that a deep and genuine revival of
religion may be experienced in all our
Dakota churches. Pray that Christ may

and tell the story of the cross to all the
wild Dakotas of the plains, and thus
bring them to Christ. Brethren and sisters pray, for us in this year 1877.
