The greater the handicap, the greater will bo the effort put forth to overcome it, and quite naturally there xvlll be a greatei’ result*
William lyon Phelps said, tfOne nan finds an obstacle a stumbling block, another finds it a stepping stone.”

In our group there are three prospective school teachers, a future doctor, a literary enthusiast, a future mission worker, and a probable farmer. One porson is not sure what his future shall be. He is making it a matter of prayer and trusting that the Lord will direct. One young man aspires to become a mail man.
UI cannot imagine God making a person do the kind of life 'work in His service that he does not like to do." This statement ms made by Bro. Levin Lehman. We were made to realize more fully the truth of it. Bach person expressed the need of asking the Lord to lead him in choosing his vocation, Jo left the Society feeling that we had enjoyed a very profitable discussion.
