The Business Session of the Conference

On Monday morning, December 28, as forty delegates took up the business of the session, two new churches were admitted, committees were appointed, and resolutions were brought before the delegates for consideration. These were not numerous, but they were important. The first read: 4BIO 24.3

1. Resolved, That immediate attention be given to the Bible-reading work [Bible studies in private homes], and that suitable persons be selected and thoroughly trained for this kind of labor.—The Bible Echo, January 15, 1892. 4BIO 24.4

The next item had to do with the literature ministry and called for a faithful follow-up work where books were sold. This was followed by a resolution of gratitude to the General Conference for sending the newly arrived workers to “visit, counsel, and assist” at this present juncture of their experience. 4BIO 24.5
