New Pastor the Seventh-day Adventist Church of Garden City has a new pastor Frederick W. Ellis, who returned last May from spending the past six years in overseas mission service in Pakistan. Home for Pastor Ellis and his wife and four young sons was Pakistan Adventist Seminary and College near the city of Lahore. Pastor • Ellis headed the Bible Department of the college and taught theology courses in both college and high school, while leading in evangelistic field training for future Pakistani Christian workers for the church. Mrs. Ellis was also active in the school, which boarded more than 300 Pakistani young people from grade school through college, teaching English classes and helping with church and school activities. "After traveling and working in the countries of the east, I was thoroughly impressed that America is still the most attractive place on earth. I hope that Americans ' work hard to maintain those good characteristics such as love, honesty, and faith that have made America great," Pastor Ellis says, and continues. "Despite what' you may have heard about anti- American sentiments in some of these countries, it is not an exaggeration to say that almost every person who expresses those sentiments would immediately come to America if they had the opportunity. 'However, it was a sad experience to me to see how little these countries had to offer the majority of.their people. The people of the east certainly need our continued sympathy and assistance." Pastor Ellis graduated in 1960 from the Seventh-day Adventist , Theological Seminary at Andrews University, Berrien Springs, Mich., and spent nine years in pastoral work in Wisconsin before his assignment overseas. He and his family are residing in Garden City Services are conducted every Saturday morning in the Garden City S.D.A.
