I finally received a welcome letter from Rev. T. Miersma written by his wife Jan. The letter cleared up the question about the difficulties they were having with the Canadian Consulate in Detroit.

HISTORY (cont’d) The statement of faith adopted by the Council of Nicea (AD 325) had certainly been a victory for the truth.
