I am here, John.
I merely want to say that you are in a better condition tonight than you have been, and I should like to write you a message but it is too late.
I heard your conversation tonight, and was much interested in it. You and your friend have the right idea as to the manner in which the truths are to be made known to the world by preachers and others who may become believers in these truths and feel the call to make the same known.
The great qualification will be the possession of the Divine Love. If this is wanting, the teacher has not that which is absolutely necessary to make his teachings a success.
In good time all these things will be explained to you. So have faith that you will be placed in condition to do the work that is named. Good night.
Your brother in Christ,
