A WORD FROM THE AUTHOR [pg 13 in English]

I am pleased to dedicate this modest work of mine to the pioneers who have struggled with much perseverance and great faith to deliver the light of the Gospel of Christ to the vast numbers of newcomers to Canada who are of Ukrainian nationality.

These men with great devotion under diverse circumstances gave their lives and their all for the cause of the Kingdom of God and have been found faithful to the end.

In this work I am including pioneers and saintly men of the Baptist Union of Western Canada and of the Ontario and Quebec Baptist Conventions who stood by and upheld those who went forth blazing the trails with the torch of the Gospel.
