Know The Answer?
Once the officials discovered that Peter escaped from jail, where did they find him?
In the temple preaching.

The Autobiography of Herbert W Armstrong - Installment 39
Herbert W Armstrong   
Church of God

Born: July 31, 1892

Office: Apostle

Herbert W. Armstrong founded the Worldwide Church of God in the late 1930s, as well as Ambassador College in 1946, and was an early pioneer of radio and tele-evangelism, originally taking to the airwaves in the 1930s from Eugene, Oregon.

After four trying years, the broadcast expands into another major population area - now on the air in Seattle! THE "lean years" continued on through 1938 and the succeeding decade. It was constant struggle, hardship. Growth seemed so very slow. Yet, viewed today in retrospect, expansion has been consistently rapid. Occasional set-backs were discouraging. But always the forgings - ahead were far greater than the slips backward. Actually, few activities engaged in by man, in our time, have enjoyed as consistent and rapid a growth over more than a quarter century duration. By June, 1938 - four and a half years after The Plain Truth starred as a mimeographed "magazine" - the first two primed editions finally had been produced. Old files examined since the publication of installment 38 have shown that the May-June, 1938, number was not actually the first, but the second edition to come off a real printing press. And they were only 8-page editions. Until then all issues had been ground out on a hand-fed, hand-cranked, antiquated neostyle, ancestor of the mimeograph.
