Have you ever eaten Fried Ice Cream! Donate!
It is delicious, like apple pie with vanilla ice cream on top. But you know that you cannot have what is good without somebody paying for it. If you have enjoyed things on my website, please consider helping me out on the expenses and keeping it on the Internet. Can you consider at least a one time donation to this ministry of $10 or $20 dollars? I have a monthly total of about 96 gigabytes total being downloaded monthly from all of my websites. Be a blessing to me and donate any amount. It would be really great if you could gift me and my wife (she wants oa fried ice cream too) this money so that we could enjoy eating out at least once in a while. (I pay the expenses for these sites out of our living expenses.) God will richly bless you and repay you for your generosity. 1 Timothy 5:18 For the scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward. If you received some value from my websites, consider at least a small donation. A big donation would really be nice, too, though.

INTRODUCTION

(Written about 1874)

FOR the past few months I have been continually asked by young converts where to get a book in which they might find advice that would be helpful to them. I felt the need of some good advice when I first became a Christian, and know the value of words fitly spoken then.

Some weeks ago I had sent to me a copy of this book, which seemed just the thing needed at this time.

I have known the author, Dr. Robert Boyd, for many years, as a dear father in Israel. I have read his work carefully, and recommend it to all young Christians for prayerful meditation.
