A highlight of the Ramapo Reformed Church Consistory’s “Have a Heart for China” campaign was a talk on the plight of Chinese refugees given before an audience of sixty by Mrs. Beatrice Russell of the Church Committee for China. She showed movies of missional work in China and the situation of the many refugees from the Japanese invasion. Other departments of the Church who are participating in the campaign are the Sunday School with its “Chinese Guest Bags” where the children can deposit their pennies, a “China Tea” to be given that week by the Ladies Aid and the sale of Chinese Refugee seals by the Missionary Society. The Consistory said they adopted this campaign as their outreach focus for the year since so little attention was being given to China in comparison to the world cry for aid to Finland.
