The letter describes the continuing effects of World War I on the country, the activities of various BGM workers, perceived opposition to the mission from the Roman Catholic hierarchy, and the testimonies of new converts. There is also a promotional letter for BGM.
Materials for this collection were received by the Center in October 1983 from John Rush of Emmaus Bible School.
