PRAISE THE LORD
PAUL A. BERNET, Publishing Director
Atlantic Union Conference
We are very grateful for the Lord's bless-
ings on the publishing ministry in the Atlantic
Union in 1980. Growth of the literature work
has been witnessed on several fronts. We
especially rejoice over the 180 souls won as a
result of contacts with literature evangelists.
Total deliveries were $1,614,000, which rep-
resents an increase of $337,000 over the pre-
vious year. Thousands of people were enrolled
in the Bible course, and more than 150,000
pieces of literature were distributed. Prayer
was offered in numerous homes—often the
first time—by LEs.

LEs who are performing the work all LEs
do the world over. They call on more non-
Adventists than any other group of workers.
Most LEs visit from 10 to 15 families a day—
some more. Multiply that by 18,000 LEs
around the world and you can begin to see
their far-reaching influence.
LEs present the wonderful truth of God's
love in attractive books. Honest and sincere
individuals part with their hard-earned money
to purchase from $25 to $400 worth of our
precious books and magazines.
We encourage LEs to pray in each home

Dream Come True
BY JEAN THOMAS, Editor
Afro-Mideast Division "Adventist Review"
With what excitement the young people, some
from Ethiopia, others from Uganda, Tanzania and
Kenya, converged on the campus of the University
College of Eastern Africa the first week of October,
1980. This was registration week—the first registra
tion for a full academic year. What made it so
exciting? What was the momentous occasion?
If you had waited year after year after year to at
tend a college where Christian standards are upheld and
where there is freedom to worship on Sabbath, you
too, would rejoice. (Because of Sabbath problems
in some countries undergraduates have been unable
to complete their degree requirements.) "This is
the answer to many prayers that have ascended to
our Heavenly Father," remarked Bekele Heye, Afro-
Mideast Division's president. "This is the day for
which we have waited for a long time."
What does it matter if the physical plant leaves
much to be desired with dormitories, classrooms, This classroom block, converted from the old calf pen on the agri-

Unions in America mentioned above who have four

Compounding the problem is the number of stu
dents who have gone abroad for further education
thinking that their finances were sufficient to see
them through but who have found them to be in

they are pleading for financial assistance from the
Division. Then there are others who, having accepted
scholarships to countries where there is religious in

I cannot answer. . . . Our division has put all avail
able resources into this project, but unless we receive
some special consideration over and above the support
that has already been offered, I do not see how the
college can really develop as it must. . . . The Lord's
work is not tied just to educational qualifications,
but our philosophy has surely been that if the church
is to mature, become self-supporting and self-
propagating, it must produce adequately trained
leaders. . . ."
The University College of Eastern Africa has
an affiliation agreement with Andrews University
and will be offering majors in theology, business
administration, English, biology, and mathematics.
There will also be secondary education, secretarial,
vocational and industrial training. The master plan
calls for an enrollment of 2,000. Two dormitories
and the administration complex have been selected
by the Division to benefit from the overflow offering
on Sabbath, March 28, 1981.
Much of the furniture and other carpentry work for the buildings
on UCEA's campus are being done by students who are earning their
way through college.
Solusi College, Africa's old, well-established
well-known institution of higher learning, alma
mater of many of Africa's leaders today, became
isolated from the East African countries at the
time Rhodesia declared its unilateral independence
in 1965. To remedy this situation the East
African territories were incorporated into the Afro-
Mideast Division when it was formed in 1970,
giving students from this area access to Middle
East College in Beirut, Lebanon. However, several
problems arose. Being on a different continent
and in a Middle East setting with a culture very
different from Africa, the school did not attract many
students nor were they willing to come into a war
situation which was in existence in Lebanon. It was
during the escalation of the Lebanese conflict in 1978
that Middle East College was no longer able to oper
ate as a Division institution. This left the youth of "These students are from my country, Ethiopia," says Solomon En-
dreas, Sabbath school director for the Afro-Mideast Division. "Some

THE TEN MOST WANTED MEN
BY EARL W. AMUNDSON, President
Atlantic Union Conference
"The greatest want of the world is the want of men—men who will not
be bought or sold, men who in their inmost souls are true and honest, men
who do not fear to call sin by its right name, men whose conscience is as true
to duty as the needle to the pole, men who will stand for the right though the
heavens fall" (Education, p. 57).
The kind of man or woman described above is:
1. The man who puts God's business above any other business.
2. The man who brings his children to church and Sabbath school
rather than sending them.
3. The man who is willing to be the right example to every boy he
4. The man who thinks more of his Sabbath school class than his
5. The man who measures his giving by what he has left, rather than
by the amount he gives.
6. The man who goes to church for Christ's sake rather than for himself
or for someone else.
7. The man who has a willing mind rather than a passion to be helped.
8. The man who can see his own faults before he.sees the faults of others.
9. The man who is more concerned about winning others for Christ than
he is about winning worldly honor.
10. The man who is committed to God's truth wherever it be found.
