Harry Bollback’s Advice

One night in early August, after I finished preaching at the Word of Life Campground in New York, Harry and Millie Bollback invited me over to their home for a late-evening snack. Other friends from Ohio and Texas were there also. Just before I left, Harry told me stories about his days as a missionary to the Indian tribes of South America in the early 1950s. He said that he and his co-worker realized early on, that the only way to build a lasting ministry would be to train the Indians they won to Christ to lead the churches they were establishing. That meant starting a Bible school. He mentioned that his attitude was to try something, and if it didn’t work, to try something else. As a Marine in World War II, Harry had gained a gung-ho attitude that served him well in pioneer mission work. As he told the stories, he applied that principle to the students he counseled at Word of Life Bible Institute. When they are about to graduate, he asks them what they plan to do. Usually they say they have two or three opportunities. “Are they good opportunities?”
