Dear Friends,

It Is Well With My Soul

The Haratio Spafford family of Chicago planned an exciting vacation to Europe for the fall of 1873. When the time came, however, business matters in the Spafford law firm prevented Mr. Spafford from going with his wife and family. He planned to join them as soon as possible.

Anna Spafford and four of their daughters kissed him goodbye and then settled in on the beautiful French steamer for a long journey. As the ship slipped out of port and the children waved goodbye to their father for the last time. Within a few days, on Nov. 22, an English shipping vessel struck the hull of the ship that carried the Spaffords. It was cut apart and sank quickly. The girls were swept into the icy waters. The 226 other people were never to be found either.

Their mother, though, was rescued along with other survivors. They were taken to Cardiff, Wales, where she wired her husband the brief but heart breaking message: "Saved alone". He left immediately to join his wife. As his ship neared the spot where the tragedy had occurred Spafford prayed. His words, written in poem form, have since become the well-known hymn, "It Is Well With My Soul".

"Jesus Loves You Fellowship"
In the Bible we read these words of Jesus,
"Believe in God, believe also in me." (John 14:1)
As we believe, we can know God's perfect love.
The following stories and songs tell of God's
plan for our lives.

1. 'Jesus Loves Me' - This simple, childlike song has its beginnings in a very short poem in a very long novel ...
2. 'Softly and Tenderly Jesus is Calling' - The dynamic preaching of evangilist Dwight L. Moody was over: he lay on his deathbed ...
3. 'Amazing Grace' - Even the sound of sweet-grace, grace-it is amazing...
4. 'Go Tll It On the Mountain' - The carolers in our town who sing from door to door often sound like a band of angels ...

God bless you,
Lucy N. Adams
