This man was in his late 70’s, and for a year became the missionary in residence at Freed Hardeman University. We would begin every class with two songs. One in the Afri- can language of Shonaand, and the other in English - “Send the Light.” We sang "Send the Light" with a twist. He changed the word “send” to “take.” Brother Loy was very familiar with the taking of the light. He was originally from Okla- homa, and somehow he found himself on the African continent in the 1950’s. He spent the rest of his life (over 50 years as I recall) in Southern Rhodesia (Now Zimbabwe). This man studied with and baptized men who have became elders and preachers in the church. Brother Loy and his wife learned the local language and raised their children on the African plains. He learned what it would “take” to bring the lost there to Christ as he gave his life in service to the Lord. His wife was taken on to her reward in this foreign land that had become their home. He was preparing his students to be missionaries in the fields of this world. We learned that sending the light was just as important as taking it. Mary and I were personally influenced by this man for the cause of Christ. We were blessed to receive marriage counseling from him before we were wed, and we continue to use the wisdom he imparted to us in marriage and also in our own efforts to bring the word to the lost and suffering of this world. “Take” the light is not just a song, it is a way of life. The mission field will “take” your dedication to it, both at home and abroad. Today we have an opportunity to both send and take the light as we give this Mission Sunday. Without this gift, we cannot keep missionaries in the field. Without this gift, we cannot send more. Without this gift, we cannot take the light to Belize and com- munities in the States. Today, our elders ask you to give with only this understanding in mind. This has been a note from the Harp. -Richard “Take the Light”

At some point in life most of us face the problem of dwindling resources. The story of the widow of Zarephath should encourage us to trust the Lord to supply our needs at all times. Our attitude toward our situation in life and toward the needs of the church in doing the mission work we have been called upon to do, may determine how we give or even if we give. It has been suggested that there are three basic attitudes that people have to- ward giving. The first attitude is “I have to.” This is the attitude that the law requires me to give and I’ll do it but it’s not what I want to do. The second attitude is “I ought to.” This is the attitude that I’m under obligation to give. It is the duty, promise or contract by which I have bound myself. Therefore I will give because I always keep my obligations. The third attitude is “I want to.” Here one is moved by love for God, their gratitude for being saved, and their love for the lost so that they want to give. The churches of Macedonia are an example of such an attitude. Although the giving being discussed was in relation to helping the poor saints in Jerusalem, Henry Halley pointed out that the “principles here stated should be the guide for churches in the taking of all of their offerings. “ Here was a group of brethren that Paul says were “imploring us with much urgency that we would receive the gift and the fellowship of the min- istering to the saints” (2 Cor. 8:4 NKJV). One of the unique things about their giving was that Paul did not have to beg them to give but that they were “begging” (RSV) Paul to allow them to have part in that fellowship of ministering to the saints. Paul seems to have been reluctant to press them to give because of their poverty. According to brother J.W. McGarvey the people of Macedonia had suffered through three wars which had left the people in poverty. In addition to this the church had suffered “persecution and tribulations” (2 Thess. 1:4). Yet in spite of their poverty, they, out of gratitude and love for the fact that they had been made free from sin, were very urgent in begging Paul to allow them to share in that fellowship of helping the brethren in Jerusalem. Today what we give will be used to help bring the good news of salvation to the lost through the differ- ent works we have been discussing for the last several weeks. We hope you have prayed about this and are here with the attitude that we want to give and we will give liberally to this great work.
