The 62nd annual Thanksgiving conference was a time of refreshment from the Lord. The Christians were made to rejoice in God their Saviour, while the responsibilities of godly living in daily life were pressed home to all present. In spite of existing conditions the attendance was considered good and many came from a distance.

An interesting feature of the conference was the Saturday afternoon session of which 22 brethren, mostly pioneers, had the opportunity to tell a little of the Lord's leading during the past year. Many reported blessings in the Gospel.
