Letter from Miss Mabel Clazie(黎媽美姑娘)

 "Schools are closed for the summer vacation, and the students gone to their homes.

I have just finished sending out term reports to the parents.

"We have had a happy term. When the term began several of the senior girls decided to meet for special prayer every day.

A few days later two evangelists from the Japan Evangelistic Band visited our school. They held several weeks'meetings in Formosa and came to Tamsui for three days, holding a meeting in the boy's school each forenoon and in our school each afternoon.

Truly the Spirit of God was with us. It was a time of real spiritual quickening. Though it is too soon yet to say what the permanent result may be, we know much good was done.

There were confessions of sin and prayers for forgiveness, such as we have only occasionally seen, and this was followed up by confessions to one another. Old quarrels were made up immediately after, and a better spirit generally has prevailed in the school ever since, as well as prayer and great concern for those who have not come out.

At our June communion service fifteen of the girls united with the church. This has all been a great joy to us, and we pray -- and hope you will pray for us too -- that we may be guided aright in directing these young lives in these all-important days of follow-up work after the step they have taken."
