"As His representatives among men, God does not choose angels who have never fallen, but human beings, men of like passions with those they seek to save. Christ took humanity that He might reach humanity." Acts of the Apostles, p. 134


"It was at the ordination of the Twelve that the first step was taken in the organization of the church that after Christ’s departure was to carry on His work on the earth...'And He ordained twelve, that they should be with Him, and that He might send them forth to preach.' Mark 3:13-14" Acts of the Apostles, p. 18.1


As they ministered to the Lord, and fasted, the Holy Ghost said, Separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work whereunto I have called them. And when they had fasted and prayed, and laid their hands on them, they sent them away,” Acts 13:2-3.


May the good Lord continue to be with His representatives as they labor for Him.
