The climax of the assembly will be a public address Sunday, "The Bible Triumphs in a Scientific World." Missionary In Africa Is Without Pop By BOB HARING TULSA, Okla. (AP)—Being missionary in Africa requires a lot of sacrifices—such as giving up root beer. "There's just nowhere to go for root beer in Africa," says Virginia Patterson, 32, a missionary to Nigeria. On home leave, she said she misses being able to get up and go out in Africa "when I feel like it—like going for a root beer' more than she misses modern plumbing, electricity and appli ances common in the United States. But Miss Patterson is a dedi cated missionary, firmly convinced of the need of teaching Christianity throughout Africa. She also is a busy student, Since she was graduated from the University of Tulsa in 1953, she earned master's degrees in Bible study from a South Carolina col lege and in elementary education from Oklahoma State University. She has spent four years in Ni geria, where she is a seventh grade teacher at the Suden interior mission school. She has her own home, built by Africans of mud bricks. In the area where she works there is one church to every 10,000 people, compared to 84 Baptist churches serving Tulsa. "Here in Tulsa you see a church on every corner, each with a pas tor, assistant pastor, education di rector, minister of music, etc.,' she says. "These men could be in the mission field. "People just aren't interested in religious things. They only care about material things—their beautiful church buildings. "The Africans walk for miles to come to church in mud huts. They sit on cement benches." Miss Patterson, sponsored by a Tulsa Baptist church, now is assigned to teach children of missionary patents. This is a vital task, she feels. 1 church at 1:30 p.m. for transportation to training and workshop session from 2:30 to 5 p.m. at Salem Lutheran Church in Moline.

Every Sunday morning we used to drive to Church in Pop's old "flivver," picking up the Parson on the way. Today I live in a great city. I ride commuter's trains, and dictate letters, and spend endless hours "in conference." But I've never forgotten our Church in the field. It plowed deep furrows in my life, and planted the seeds of real happiness. Now I worship in a big city church. You might think it would be different; but it isn't Folks are just as friendly. The Truth is just the same. And God is just as close. You see, in the country or in the city, Christians are conscientious people trying to be better. And for folks like you and me who worship God, the Church — big or little — is home Copyright 1963, Kelster Advertising Service, Inc., Straabnrg, Va.
