"Dear Mrs. Hunter, We have now come to the part of our meeting to which we have all looked forward with very much interest. Namely, to presenting you, one of our charter members, with a certificate of life membership in our society. This is just a small token of our appreciation of your faithful service in our little missionary society, and we feel that our Saviour who has commanded us all to be faithful, looked down in love on what we are doing this afternoon. On behalf of our society I extend congratulations and best wishes to you on your birthday. We trust you may yet see many birthdays, and that though you cannot always meet with us, we may be able to feel that you are praying for us. More things are wrought by prayer than this world dreams of. Wherefore let thy voice rise like a fountain night and day; for so the whole round world is everyway, bound by golden chains about the feet of God."
