Mrs. Helen Fling, Chairman of the Resolutions Committee appointed on Thursday night, presented the following:

BE IT RESOLVED, that we, the members of the BWA Executive Committee, publicly express gratitude:

For the blessings of God that have come to our lives individually and corporately during these days of our deliberations in Jamaica;

For the prayerful leadership and detailed planning of our President, other officers, and the entire BWA staff;

For the generous hospitality and entertainment of the Jamaica Baptist Union, remembering the splendid preparation and untiring work of its officers and staff, and also recognizing the wholehearted cooperation of the Union;

For the warmth and spirit of the churches as well as the wonderful participation of pastors, laymen, women, nd youth alike, with special mention of the delightful Jamaican meal at the East Queen Street Baptist Church, and in a different vein, with special mention of the inspiration of the International Rally at the National arena with its privilege of united worship;

and BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that we go from this memorable and meaningful meeting to offer ourselves anew to God to be used in His Mission of Reconciliation of man to man and man to God.

MOTION was made by Mrs. Fling, and seconded, and carried, that this resolution be adopted. Mr. McKenzie was asked to report this action to those in the Jamaica Baptist Union who had done so much to make the meeting a success.
