Let me tell you more about this once. in it. It supplies a very bright spot in my life to read about my home and the people in it. Although I live in this part of the countrynow, my heart still belongs down there where I grew up. But the real reason that my mind is on the old hometown, is that I just finished reading about the old Lakeview Hos- pital burning down, and it really sickened me to learn that some- one might have burned it to rob the city offices. You wrote many of the memories folks down there have of the old hos- pital. But think of the personal memories many folks have, very personal ones dear to each ones heart. If this is the case that someone has done this to per- form a robbery, I just hopethey are caught and punished. That's enough of my indigna- Over the past week, mem- bers of the Tri-City Rescue Squad traveled 317 miles, us- ing 40 man hours.

You see, folks, my Father is very rich. Why, He owns the cattle on a thousand hills. In fact, He has so much wealth that He wants to give all of it away absolutely free. MY Father may be kind of hard to understand (John 3:16), but He means what He says. Everything is free for the asking. Here, where you live now, you have to share the same street with all kinds of bad people. You have to live in the same neighborhood with every sort of "creep." In the place where your new home is located, however, no one will be permitted ~ho tells lies, steals, cheats, or does anything wrong 0Rev. 21:27). Oh yes, there won't be any taxes to pay. You see, ' the streets of gold will never need repair. There will be no need for policemen or firemen. One of the best things I like about this free home is that it will be a happy home. There will be no quarreling, no divorces, and all will be peace and happiness. There will be no sickness tocause pain and suffer. inc. There will never be any more deaths to bring grief and smrow. Yes, the climate there is the very best. The air is fr@sh and clean, and there's no pollution of the streams and river. I could go on and on telling you what this beautiful new home is like, but I guess by now you are more interested in how to get there. Here are the very simple directions: Go to the street that is called straight; and when you find it, walk thereon (Heb. 12:13). The journey must begin by your asking my Father for the right totravelthis way. Don't worry, though, He has never refused anyone who has asked Him in faith be. liPPing. Some have tried to go to receive one of these new homes without asking my Father first, and they were refused (John 10:1). Don't be afraid to talk to my Father for He is very understanding and wants you to have one of these fine new homes. Now, as you make your Journey up the street that is called straight, don't be fooled by those who would try to tell you that it's all a Joke and that there's nothing free. Turn neither to the right nor to the left; just keep right on walking until you see the gate at the end of the way. Once you are through the gate, look around; take your time and pick out the home you like. Perhaps you'd prefer a split level or a ranch style, but I am sure you can find exactly the type of new home you have always wanted. This is, of course, an unlimlted offer; there are enough homes for everyone who wants one. There is only one thing that I must caution you about. Don't wait, for this amazing offer will undoubtedly be withdrawn at any time. Hurry, while there is still trine, and ask my Father to give you a title to one of these new homes now.
