THE COLPORTEUR WORK
God has been pleased to specially use and bless the colporteur branch of the service. Very largely through this instrumentality nearly a million copies of the various volumes of MILLENNIAL DAWN series are now scattered throughout this land of freedom and intelligence: and these are constantly coming to the attention of new readers, here and abroad.
“THE HARVEST IS GREAT, BUT THE LABORERS ARE FEW.”
“HE THAT REAPETH RECEIVETH WAGES AND GATHERETH FRUIT UNTO
This testimony is true now, as it was in the Jewish “harvest;” and hence we urge all who are so situated that they can engage in this work, to do so. It is one of the best opportunities we know of for preaching the true gospel: going from house to house all are reached—not only those who attend church services, but also those who do not; the latter class including some of the true “wheat” who absent themselves because they cannot there obtain the spiritual nourishment for which they hunger and thirst.
Do not think of this as a “book business;” for it is no such thing. It is “preaching,” “evangelizing,” “teaching” in the truest and best sense of those terms. The Colporteur is one with the books and tracts which he circulates, and their teaching is associately his teaching.
This work is open to both brethren and sisters who are not hampered by family obligations. It is not merely for those who are out of employment and know of nothing more profitable; it is specially for those who have talents and employment and who desire to sacrifice something for the privilege of being co-workers with God in the greatest and grandest work men or angels were ever privileged to engage in. “He that is ashamed of me and my word, of him will I also be ashamed,” said our Savior.
