A Resource for Seventh-day Adventist Pioneer Writings

Welcome!

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

Again and again I have been shown that the past experiences of God’s people are not to be counted as dead facts.
We are not to treat the record of these experiences as we would treat a last year’s almanac.
The record is to be kept in mind, for history will repeat itself.
