BWA Executive Committee Resolution 1963-08.1

We, who have been visiting Baylor University in connection with the 1963 meeting of the Executive Committee of the Baptist World Alliance, desire to express our sincere appreciation to all who have made our visit so pleasant. While our gratitude is extended to President McCall of Baylor, and all who have assisted in making our visit here so enjoyable, we would express particularly to Mrs. Mathis our deep sense of indebtedness for the many special ways in which gracious hospitality has been extended to us all. Baylor has now become a definite part of the historical record of the Baptist World Alliance, and as we return to our respective places of service, we shall carry with us many happy memories of the interesting and delightful days we have spent here together.


BWA; Appreciation; Baylor University.
