    Victories at Wright and Orleans

    Our meetings in Wright were blessed of God. We labored especially for the young and were encouraged as we saw that our labor was not in vain. Nine Sabbathkeeping children manifested their desire for salvation, and each had strength to take the cross. With broken hearts they bore their testimony.—Ibid.1BIO 483.5

    Wednesday afternoon eleven were baptized, nine of them young people. Then the traveling workers pressed on to Greenville for the meetings of the next weekend. Ellen White wrote:1BIO 483.6

    We traveled Thursday afternoon over crossroads, mud, sloughs, and logways. Again I went on foot a portion of the way because the roads were so bad. We traveled all day Friday to get to Greenville. Arrived there before sundown.—Ibid.1BIO 484.1

    At Greenville efforts to get the church fully organized took the couple's time and strength. There was opportunity for only one meeting for the youth. There was a good response, and seven were baptized. Though they had filled the appointments made for them in this part of Michigan, they felt they could not return to Battle Creek without meeting with the church at Orleans, so they extended their itinerary one more week. After a profitable Sabbath and Sunday there, they started back to Battle Creek, holding some evening meetings en route. As James White reported the month-long carriage trip he commented:1BIO 484.2

    We look back upon this tour with great pleasure, and hope the time is not far distant when discordant notes among us will cease, and order and sweet harmony will prevail, and the Lord will work among our people everywhere.—The Review and Herald, December 9, 1862.1BIO 484.3
