On Thursday, May 20 we (Rev. Smit and Rev. and Sharon Kleyn) flew to Bacolod City on the island of Negros to do a conference there with various old and new contacts from that area. The conference was held on Friday, May 21 and was an abbreviated version of the recent conference done in Manila. Rev. Smit gave two lectures on Particular Grace and Rev. Kleyn gave two on Reformed Church Government.

Question and Answer Period
Discussion at the end of the day.
The conference was worthwhile and enjoyable. It gave the missionaries the opportunity to renew old contacts and meet new ones, and to become aware of the situation and possibilities of work in the Bacolod area. We wait on the Lord to see how He uses the work done and what doors He might open in the future.
