Still no word from the government about the congregation's request for recognition, Albertus C. Van Raalte writes Hendrik P. Scholte. Other congregations in the area are requesting the same privilege.

Van Raalte is preparing two students for the ministry. Another student, Hartgerink, has no natural talent, however.
