“Everything is dependent upon the blessing of God who can give both the inspiration and the fulfillment. Anyone who considers the meager means with which the start had to be made, may be somewhat concerned, and, as for me, my friends and acquaintances cannot be more so than I. However, they may also have good hope, for, as history teaches, everything that God does, tends to begin small and slowly, proceeds gradually, and often succeeds contrary to human plans and expectations.”
