A Resource for Seventh-day Adventist Pioneer Writings
We are republishing Seventh-day Adventist pioneer material in response to the following counsel:
“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.”
Ellen White, The Review and Herald, May 25, 1905
