Whatever the fate of this law may be, it is sufficiently evident that our gospel work need not be stayed for lack of souls to work upon, till China herself and all her broad domain, becomes the Lord’s.

YONG JIN AT SACRAMENTO.
I reserve a little space in order to give our readers a little sample of this gospel work as it appears in a letter from our helper, Yong Jin. He has recently returned from China where he did good service under Rev. Mr. Hazen, and he has resumed service with us. “I will tell you what I had to do with the brethren. Monday night after the school is out [i.e. 9:30] we have the Bible lesson of Chinese, and Tuesday night too. Wednesday night we have a prayer-meeting after school is out. Thursday night we have ten or fifteen minutes to speak the gospel before the school is out. Friday night we have a Bible lesson in Chinese too. Saturday night we have a prayer meeting again. Sunday night all the same. But last Sunday noon I preach on the street where the Chinese live. Perhaps I will preach in the street nest Sunday. By and by, if I do not preach on the street, I shall preach in the mission-house on Sunday noon. I shall do as best I can, and I hope God will help us to do.”
I will add that we are hoping to commence special evangelistic work early in December. Loo Quong will go to our missions in Southern California, and Chin Toy to those north of us, beginning in Stockton, where the door seems to be opening wide, and an earnest spirit among the brethren gives promise of good results. I wish these brethren might be remembered by our Eastern brethren with special prayer.
