Ellen G. White: The Australian Years: 1891-1900 (vol. 4)


Ellen G. White Stood as a Bank to the Cause

“I have to stand as a bank,” Ellen White wrote to Dr. Kellogg in Battle Creek, “to uphold, borrow, and advance money.” She added, “I turn and twist every way to do the work. Others will take hold and do something when they see that I have faith to lead out and donate.” Then she stated: 4BIO 266.4

Here are all our workers that must be paid. I am heavily in debt in this country to those in other countries. Eighteen hundred dollars from one person; this money has been used up. Five hundred dollars from one in Africa, which is a loan and has been applied in different ways that demanded means to forward the work. I move by faith.—Letter 58, 1896. 4BIO 266.5
