Emissaries of evil had reached the Indians long before the Missionaries of the Cross appeared. "All the white men that came before you," replied a chief, "said that they had come to do us good, but they stole our goods and corrupted our women; and how are we to know that you are different?"
WILLIAM HOBART HARE, MISSIONARY BISHOP OF SOUTH DAKOTA, 1888
- Jesus, show me how I misrepresent or discredited you...
- Jesus, I confess these sins and I make it my purpose to walk in your way.
- Jesus, I thank you for your blood shed to wash away my sins.
If your instructions hadn’t sustained me with joy, I would have died in my misery. Psalm 119:92
