Help, please, to understand. Whether I so badly look, whether in this magazine pages 26 and 27 are removed?
Help me find the pages :)
NO they are not removed. It is because the illustrations have been removed.
Harvesttime in the Land of Ice and Snow
GREENLAND, the largest island in the world, is truly a land of ice and snow. Most of this nearly 1,700-mile-long [2,700 km] island lies north of the Arctic Circle and is under a permanent ice cap averaging about one mile [1.5 km] in thickness. The rest of Greenland is covered by snow from five to eight or more months out of the year. It is said that the early Viking explorers named it Greenland to attract settlers. During the short summer, however, certain coastal areas do fit the name.
In the spring, the frozen sea off northeastern Greenland breaks up, and pack ice appears. This ice makes its way down the east coast, around Cape Farewell, and partway up the west coast, making travel by sea extremely difficult for"
"months on end. In the wintertime, the sea around most of the island freezes, isolating the populated places. Literally, ice dominates the land, the sea, and the people’s way of life. It is hard to imagine what could be harvested in this country.
Making a Start
Eskimo of Inuit cultures have lived as hunters in Greenland for centuries. In 1721 Lutheran minister Hans Egede came to Greenland as a missionary. Later, the Moravian Mission was active in various settlements. Some of their missionaries translated certain books of the Bible into the Greenlandic language, preserving God’s personal name, Jehovah, in their translation. But since 1900, only the Danish Lutheran Church has operated in Greenland.
In 1953, while Greenland was still a colony of Denmark, an important turn of events occurred. According to the new Danish Constitution that took effect that year, religious groups other than the Lutheran Church were once again allowed in Greenland. Thus, in January 1955, two of Jehovah’s Witnesses from Denmark arrived as missionaries. Their assignment was a 1,200-mile [2,000 km] stretch along the southwest coast, where almost all Greenlanders lived—a population of 27,000, consisting mostly of hunters and fishermen.
Kristen Lauritsen, one of the two Witnesses, recalls: “Our knowledge of Greenlandic was next to nothing, but we did have a very strong desire to teach Greenlanders the truth of God’s Word. We had a few tracts in Greenlandic, and the booklet ‘This Good News of the Kingdom’ arrived later that first year.” How did they go about their preaching work?
“In the beginning we used printed cards to explain the purpose of our visit. But later we learned some sentences by heart. Travel between towns was always by boat and very irregular, as timetables were virtually unknown. Seasickness was a common experience. We also had problems finding places to stay. Often, we had to make do with the tent we always carried along with our luggage.”
But there were compensations. The Greenlanders are a friendly and hospitable people. It is natural for them to believe in God and respect the Bible. Nearly every home has the complete Bible in the vernacular. Kristen remembers that a little girl once came up to them with a note that said: “If you haven’t got a place to stay yet, you can come and stay with us.” This family also helped them to find a place where they arranged to show one of the Society’s films.
This is not the first time I notice that some pages from the logs are deleted. It happens that in different languages completely different magazines.
Thank you! I only read Raymond Frenz's book "In Search of Christian Freedom" and there is a link to this magazine and articles. But they do not correspond to what is quoted in the book of Franz. (115 pages)
