3. Dr. Anderson submitted the Minute which
referred to Mr. and Mrs. Moody’s departure, and the Secretary
was instructed to send a copy of the same to Mr. Moody. The
Minute read as follows：--
The Council desire to put on record its sense
of the loss sustained by the Mission in the enforced departure
from Formosa of Mr. and Mrs Campbell Moody in the interests of
Mrs Moody’s health.
Mr. Moody arrived in 1895 and left in 1909.
The Council acknowledges with gratitude to God the work which
our brother has been able to accomplish, both in Chianghwa
itself and in other parts of Mid-Formosa. Whilst not neglecting
other methods, he firmly believed in evangelistic open-air
preaching as a method by which the Gospel can be brought to the
people. In such work he was indefatigable and his influence,
especially in this direction, was felt by all the evangelists
who laboured. in his district. The Council deeply regret his
loss as tat of an earnest, able, and faithful colleague, and
sincere friend. And it further desires to express the hope that
in whatever sphere God in His providence may open u for him,
there my be a continuance of the same blessing upon his labours；
and that, if it be the Divine will, Mrs. Moody may be granted
restoration to health, and may be privileged, along with her
husband, to enjoy many years of usefulness.
