The Staff of the Standard Bearer is pleased to introduce in this first issue of Volume 40 a new department, on missions. During the coming year it will appear seven times, according to the decision of the Staff, and will be headed, “The Lord Gave The Word . . . ” Ps. 68:11. The Reverend C. Hanko has kindly consented to write for this department, and we welcome him back among our Staff. He will write on both the principles and the practice of missions, and has indicated that part of his writings will be devoted to a report on the work in Jamaica. 

Present arrangements are that this new rubric will appear the first of the month, and for the time being it will replace “In His Fear.”
