Resolutions on the Death of REV. A. D. Rowe
Excerpt from Resolutions on the Death of Rev. A. D. Rowe: Children's Missionary, Passed by the Board of Managers Whereas, it has pleased God, in His wise providence, to call our beloved brother, Rev. A.D. Rowe, the first Children's Missionary to India, away from his earthly life and labors by death, and Whereas, We deem it right and fitting that we, as the Officers and Managers of the Children's Foreign Missionary Society, which sent Bro. Rowe to India and has regularly supported him as its special Missionary to that benighted land and people, should give some formal and public expression to our great respect for his character and services, and our feelings in view of his death; therefore Resolved, That we hereby add our personal and official testimony to that of multitudes of others, to the purity, the unselfishness, the nobleness and the Christian integrity and faithfulness of Rev. A.D. Rowe, and to his untiring and unremitting zeal and activity in the prosecution of the work to which God had called him as a missionary to the heathen. Resolved, That we desire especially to bear witness to the wisdom and fidelity which he displayed in all his work as the Children's Missionary, whether in the visitation of our Sunday Schools and the organization of auxiliary Societies here at home, or in his labors for the salvation of souls and the advancement of Gods kingdom, as our representative in India. Resolved, That we sympathize most deeply with the universal sorrow felt by the ten thousand members of the Children's Foreign Missionary Society, each of whom feels that in the death of Bro. Rowe he has lost a beloved, personal friend, as well as a trusted and valued leader and Missionary. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
