Woman's Mite Missionary Society, Minutes of the Seventh Annual Convention, Cincinnati, 1903
                  OF THE A. M. E. CHURCH.                  27

and Sunbeams; Frankfort, one, Women; New Richmond, one,
Sunbeams; Wilberforce, one, Sunbeams; making in all, nine
organized forces to help spread the gospel and do good along
all temperance and missionary lines. Besides these new organi-
zations, reports will show that interest has been awakened among
the women at several points. God be praised for signal good,
and for what we cannot see, as well as what will develop in the
future. We have been very solicitous for the children who
respond so readily. They are the future church and just as we
train them and fill them with missionary zeal and enthusiasm, so
will they make earnest or careless missionaries of the future. I
have kept before the societies the thought of a special aim or
object for our Conference mite societies, and feel sure that we
will have support in whatever special work we undertake. The
year's work, as have others, has been very pleasant and profitable.
We have done what we could and must now in winding up our
report thank you for making it possible to travel as your organi-
zer, to meet and come in touch with so many dear women, men
and children, who have all helped make the year a success.
Again I thank you and am glad to hand over the work to stronger
hands than mine, in better condition than when I took it up.
The Convention appropriated twenty dollars for traveling expen-
ses. We have received in way of donations twelve dollars and
ninety-five cents, a total of $32.95. Paid for traveling expenses
and correspondence $39.40.
                          Respectfully submitted,
                                         SUSIE I. SHORTER.

          Report of Corresponding Secretary.

    It is with a heart overflowing with gratitude that I bring
this report to you.  God has bountifully blessed the work of our
hands. If there was ever any doubt as to whether this organiza-
tion be of God's ordering, that doubt must vanish in the face of
our present achievement.  Last year we were a little in advance
