The currency of a bigger world

Stanley Shipp, a pioneer of international and domestic missions, died Aug. 25 in an automobile wreck in Abilene.
Shipp often handed coins to students in the United States to remind them that they were part of a larger world.
Shipp’s wife, Marie, who recovered from her injuries in the wreck, received a standing ovation from workshop participants in Moody Coliseum.
About 900 students attended the three-day event, with the theme ‘Glorify, Unify, Testify.’ The workshop included seminars on the life and work of missionaries. Workers in the field and missions professors made presentations, and recruiters from missionary organizations staffed booths.
