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


Two Weeks at Ballarat

Ellen White had her eyes on the closing of the Bible school in Melbourne in mid-December, to be followed by the Australian Conference session in early January. With their work completed in Adelaide, there was just time to squeeze in a two-week visit at Ballarat en route to Melbourne. She and her women helpers stayed at the home of a church member whose family name was James. It was about a mile out of town, surrounded by fruit trees and abounding with beautiful flowers. 4BIO 47.7

On December 12 they returned to Melbourne. Although it was early summer, the weather was cloudy and cold, but the outlook for Ellen White was brighter than it had been for the better part of a year. 4BIO 47.8
