A missionary is prevented from going to Japan

Pupils at a Caversham Sunday School run by Broad Street Congregational Church heard about the effects of the war on foreign missions:

On Sunday afternoon, September 13th, we had a visit from Miss Spencer. After the opening hymn and prayer, Miss Spencer addressed the scholars on missionary work. she told them that although the war had prevented her from going to Japan at present, still she hoped soon to be able to go to the mission field.
