Adventist Pioneers

      Pioneers  of  the  Advent  Movement

    "Repeat the words of the pioneers in our work, who knew what it cost to search for the truth as for hidden treasure,  

     and who labored to lay the foundation of our work."  (RH 5/25/05)

Complete quotation:  

God has given me light regarding our periodicals. What is it?-- He said that the dead are to speak. How?--Their works shall follow them. We are to repeat the words of the pioneers in our work, who knew what it cost to search for the truth as for hidden treasure, and who labored to lay the foundation of our work. They moved forward step by step under the influence of the Spirit of God. One by one these pioneers are passing away. The word given me is, Let that which these men have written in the past be reproduced. . . .-- Review and Herald,  May 25, 1905
