Letter from N.D. Pendleton to Rev. Gustaf Baeckström , 1929-06-26

Identifier: RG.004.01

Scope and Contents

Typed letter from N.D. Pendleton to Rev. Gustaf Baeckström in Stockholm, Sweden. Pendleton draws Baeckstrom’s attention to the latest issue of the New Church Life where news of Baeckstrom’s most recent missionary tip has been fully reported. With attendance at meetings so high, Pendleton is sure there will be good results. On June 13th, Pendleton will sail to South Africa by way of France and Holland with Mrs. (Beatrice) Pendleton. They will meet with Theodore and Maryke Pitcairn in France, and they will travel together to South Africa. In Durban, they will hold a South African Assembly and ordain ten or twelve ministers. They will also visit Zuzuland (Zululand?), Basutoland, and parts of Cape Colony. The trip will take four months in total. After the end of the school year, Pendleton drove to Pittsburgh for the laying of the cornerstone for the new church building there. Pendleton has also received Baeckstrom’s letter of May 29th with Miss Elizabeth Sandstrom’s membership application. Pendleton is interested in Baeckstrom’s comments on Hans Giobel and in the prospect of Erik Sandstrom coming to study for the ministry in Bryn Athyn.
