BWA Executive Committee Resolution 1933-11.1

The General Secretary during the luncheon hour gave information as to the serious need, even amounting to starvation, among certain sections of the Russian Baptists, and emphasised the duty of expressing sympathy in practical form. At a later stage of the meeting it was resolved:—

“That the Committee has heard with interest and sympathy of organisation “Russian Service” represented by the Rev. I. V. Neprash, and trusts that he and those co-operating with him may receive adequate support in their humanitarian undertaking.”
