PROTESTANT REFORMED CHURCHES 

February, 1974 

Dear Brethren and Sisters in the Lord, 

It has been some time since we have written you through the columns of the Standard Bearer. But this is not really so serious, because various reports concerning our activities have appeared rather regularly. We do hope to be more regular with these letters in the future. 

Our reason for writing this time, however, is to express publicly to all of you our deep gratitude for your generous support of the Seminary which has made possible erection of our new facilities. Others, particularly from the Theological School Committee, have expressed thanks before; but we as faculty, and in the name of the student body also, want to let you know how much we appreciate your generous support.

It is a little difficult for us to describe how we feel about our new building; and this is because we are still quite overwhelmed by it all. The facilities are so beautiful and commodious and the site so inspiring that we have not really gotten used to it yet. We do want to assure you, however, that all this has aided in making our work very pleasant. 

What has particularly overwhelmed us is the generous support which you have shown in making this building possible. We are confident that this generous support is an indication of your love and concern for our Theological School and your deep interest in our affairs. Without the support, the interest, and, above all, the prayers of our people, this building would not be possible, nor would our work be in any way blessed. We bring a special word of thanks to our readers who, while not members of our Churches, have nevertheless contributed to this cause. 

We shall not include in this letter any news of the Seminary. We shall wait with that till a future letter. 

May God’s blessing rest upon you all; may your prayers continue on our behalf; and may God’s name receive all the glory now and forevermore. 

With love in he Lord Jesus Christ,

Robert D. Decker
