BWA Executive Committee Resolution 1964-08.2

The second resolution expressed appreciation for the hospitality enjoyed by the Executive Committee in Hamburg and for those who prepared and led the meeting:

Members of the Executive Committee, Study Commissions, and visitors who have been the recipients of delightful hospitality as we have met in Hamburg for our current sessions. We would enter upon our records an expression of appreciation to those who have made this possible.

The Baptist Seminary of Hamburg, with its related schools, has made us comfortable and surrounded us with the atmosphere of home on this beautiful campus. We thank Dr. Hans Luckey, the President, and members of the faculty and staff for the many courtesies extended to us. Special recognition should be made of our housemother, of Mrs. Luckey, and the ladies assisting her as they have provided delicious food and refreshments for our enjoyment.

We would thank all of our Christian friends in Germany, and especially in Hamburg, for the welcome which we have received. May the blessing of God rest upon the witness being given in this country under the leadership of Brother Thaut and his co-workers.

Furthermore, we would record our thanks and appreciation to those who have prepared the programs and led us in our meetings. We are grateful for the leadership of President Soren and the Vice-Presidents, for Doctors Nordenhaug, Denny, Ruden, and the staffs supporting them in the Washington and London offices.

After the MOTION was put to the Committee by Duke McCall, it was carried unanimously.

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.

Whereas, the Executive Committee of the Baptist World Alliance has had a most enjoyable and profitable meeting in Liberia, July 30-August 1, 1968, and

Whereas, the President and people of Liberia have shown us every kind-ness and courtesy,

Be it therefore resolved that we declare our appreciation for President and Mrs. William V. S. Tubman and the other Officers of State in Liberia who have joined heartily in entertaining the Executive Committee of the Baptist World Alliance, and

That we express our deepest gratitude to Dr. William R. Tolbert, Jr., President of the Baptist World Alliance, Vice President of Liberia, and Presi-dent of the Liberia Baptist Missionary and Educational Convention, and Mrs. Tolbert for being the perfect host and hostess, and

That we extend our thanks to the Liberia Baptist Missionary and Educa-tional Convention for its warm hospitality and unstinting service beyond all of our expectations, and

That we avow our gratitude for the Administration and Staff of Ricks Institute who served so faithfully as the host institution for the meeting of the Executive Committee, and

That we voice our sincere appreciation to the radio, television, and news- papers in Liberia for their splendid coverage of the work of our Committee, and

That we express our love and pledge our continuing prayers for Liberia and her wonderful people.

After the reading of this resolution there was prolonged applause. Payne stated that obviously a vote was not needed and declared the resolution passed by common consent and acclamation.

President Tolbert responded by indicating the joy of Liberian Baptists in having the BWA Executive Committee meet in Monrovia and their pleasure that the Committee had accepted what they endeavored to offer and considered it what the members desired. They had tried to share what they have. God has been gracious and blessed the efforts. He expressed the hope that in the future they may again serve as hosts to the Committee, and that in the years to come they may be host to the Congress of the Baptist World Alliance. (Applause).
