The follou-ing story was written by a friend of the Pauls concerning their years of study, and their ambitions. The story is being reprinted for the benefit of Mr. and Mrs. Paul's friends in the Fayette area. by Charlotte Syme "My times are in thy hands," asserted the Psalmist. "Amen," respond the Richard Pauls of Fayette, Iowa and Lnns- dale, Pa. For seven years they sought to serve God dn the mission field. The road was beset by disappointments, discouragements, and blasted plans but their eyes never wavered from the goal nor was their faith in the Call dimmed. As they look back down the long road, God's good timing is apparent in each forward step and in each slop as well. "As we prepare at last to sail," Dick says, "we rejoice in the significance of the words from Isaiah: 'For ye shall not go out with haste, nor go by flight; for the Lord will go before you; and the God of Israel will be your reward." An expert radio technician and possessor of both ham and commercial radio-telephone licenses, Dick Paul is needed in Florence, Italy to take charge of a broadcasting studio operated by the Worldwide European Fellowship. Tapes prepared there are broadcast over Trans-World Radio and beamed behind the Iron Curtain. The long discipline of watching God time their movements began back in January, 1953. Dick, then a young Air Force technician, was stationed with his bride in Springfield, Mass. Under the preaching of the Rev. Linwood Dctweiler, now of Grace Bible Church, Souderton, Pa., they surrendered to the Lordship of Jesus Christ. Then came a conviction that Dick ought to finish college. Because his radio know-how made him top-priority to the Air Force, he knew that only a miracle would release him before his enlistment was up. "Nevertheless," Laura recalls, "he applied and waited to see* what God would do about it. On September 11, 1953, he received his discharge -- just four days before the fall term opened ,at, King's college." By this time a baby daughter had joined the family, but he moved ahead in faith and received his degree in the 'spring of 1855. During his college days, Dick became greatly concerned about from his commitment to Dr. Crasv ford. "I-could nt/,-'forget some /.bin."-!

There is nothing to growing family. buv .' All that is asked of the own,, , t ... . . ,, .. ,^r is a little information so that God was still showing them the ., precision, <>f His timing. In Feb- ( . , f b]j * foUowing i nary, 1 !>:>'.), jnxl two weeks before week they were to sail to Austria under the Europt an Evangelization Crusade, administrative changes necessitate'! canc'ellation of their book- in 1 ;. One result of the switch was that Timothy was born here at home instead of on the field as anticipated. Now sup.io t had to be sought. "The- resp'ins : ')il ; ty of a growing family d i;; nut permit freedom in (!"ji't'ition.'il t .AT!," Dick wrote his constit ivn y. An expert mech an'u. 1 , he wo Ui d full time. But because he is a missionavy at Iwa t, he bc/{.-i'i a Bible-teaching miiiisti'y in tin. 1 unchurched com- nvnity of Tylf's;wt, Pa. There he leaves a Uri\ ing congregation. Dtp-.'tation work was fitted among t'lKse activities. Not until Christinas of K'ul was t'w last $50 of suppo. I promised. Hy then they had Samuel. Only the visa from Rome was lacking a matter of much delay and red tape. The big news came on January 17 and was wired jubilantly to supporting churches; "Visas granted ... sailing March 31 ... Time short . . " The Lord's clock was still running well - they had time to get comfortable accommodations at the off-season rates. Asked about her own call to the mission field, I-aura Paul glances fondly around her lively brood. "God has given me a big job of motherhood," she responds. "And I'm Dick's wife. That he has a call to go is enough for me. I know that my place is where he is." So she shops and packs and makes lists without neglecting the day-to-day care of five small children. She and Dick will be ready on March 31, when with Diana, Jonathan, Daniel, Timothy, and Samuel, they sail for Florence, Italy, and the job toward which they have been moving for seven years.
