NEW FREUDENTHAL BAPTIST CHURCH
Dear Brother: Scattered over a large part of the State we have many German Baptists who have not seen a brother of ours for many years; they are as sheep having no shepherd. I traveled in this quarter by railroad 700 miles and by team 600 miles, and have had services in this time in twenty-one places. In Emmons County I organized a new church with eighteen members. This field is very hopeful; about twenty persons decided to follow the Lord in baptism. The name of this new church is "New Freudenthal." In the other places the Lord has given us an awakening; a few persons are converted; others are still praying for peace.
The letter is quoted from Page 21 of The Baptist Home Mission Monthly 1832 - 1901, Volume XXIII, No. 1, January 1901, by American Baptist Home Mission Study. [Note: The letter is undated. It is in a section of various letters entitled "Missionary Department." On the previous page there is a letter dated November 13, 1900].
This website has other recordings of this church name as "Fredenthal."
