When these notes reach your desk, the climax of the "Building for Christ" offering will be very near. At the moment all reports indicate that the effort will be a success. By midnight on March 20 we shall know pretty well how things will turn out. There are many prayers for it here at Valparaiso. The success of the offering will mean lifted burdens on this campus, financial stability, great hope for greater opportunities."
