ELDER L. J. MIMS, one of our most promising young preachers, is pastor (1897) of four churches in the Waco Association, viz: Bosqueville, Concord, Eddy and Pleasant Grove. He makes a circuit of 200 miles each month in attending these churches. He is fairly well educated, an attractive speaker, has good social qualities, and is a close student of the Bible. We bespeak for him a useful life in the Master’s service.
