BWA World Congress Resolution 1911.6

Dr. Prestridge : It falls to me and is my great pleasure to read these resolutions of thanks. I think that is fitting because for two or three months I have been in daily correspondence,—and sometimes three and four times a day,—with the various chairmen of the committees here, and I know of their labors, of their afflictions and of their patience:

Resolved, That this second session of the Baptist World Alliance from the standpoint of extended hospitality has proven a happy and delightful success; that Philadelphia has more than carried out all of her promises making the sessions complete and our social entertainment a joyous experience never to be forgotten. We herewith express to Rev. Howard Wayne Smith and through him to his able, large, efficient, gracious, and, to us, beautiful, corps of assistants and to the local press our unbounded gratitude. The whole city of Philadelphia has counted us its guests, and we shall always believe that its name most happily embodies the spirit of its citizens.

BWA World Congress Resolution 1965.3

We, the delegates of the Eleventh Baptist World Alliance Congress held at Miami Beach, Florida, June 25-30, 1965, offer thanks to our Heavenly Father for the privilege of fellowship with Baptists gathered from the nations of the world. We are grateful, not alone for new light and truth which have broken forth from the Word of God, but for the restatement of those things most surely believed among us.

We deeply appreciate the prayerful and detailed preparation by the officers and executives of the Alliance, the President, chairmen and speakers, members of commissions and those who led the music contributed to the inspiration and blessing of the Congress.

We extend our thanks to the chairman and members of the Arrangements Committee and to all the subcommittees and individuals whose efforts have resulted in the efficient working of the Congress.

We recognize gratefully the cooperation of governmental and civic bodies, the police and transport authorities, the press, and others without whose help the Congress could not have been such a success.
