There is a chance Pendleton may
lose one of its ablest pastors through
a call that has come from Eastern
Canada. Rev. R. L. Bussabarger has
been invited to accept the position of
general evangelist for the maritime
provinces cf Nova Scotia and New
Brunswick and Prince Edward Isl
and at a salary of $3000 per annum.
The church officials in the maritime
provinces have been negotiating with
Mr. Bussabarger for some time past
and have just repeated the request
that he accept the important post ten
dered him. The offer has been taken
under advisement by the local Chris
tian church pastor but no decision has
yet been made. Rev. Bussabarger has
been pastor of the Christian church
in Pendleton for over a year and has
been a strong Influence here with the
result many friends are urging him to
remain despite the fact the offer made
him would involve a promotion and a
higher salary. It is possible he may
accede to their wishes.
