What of the Night?"

(WWN) is a thought paper
that was published monthly continuously from Jan, 1968 to the end of Dec. 2006 . by the Adventist Laymen's Foundation of Mississippi,
Inc.(ALF), with William H.
Grotheer as the Editor
of Research & Publication.

Due to his failing health,
Elder Grotheer requested
that ALF of Canada continue publishing thoughts through its website
which now has developed
into frequent Blog Thought
articles plus all of the
Foundation's historical
published works written
and audio.

As of 2010, with the official
closing of the ALF of USA,
The Adventist Laymen's
Foundation of Canada
with its website is
the only officially operating
ALF branch established
by Elder Grotheer

We are thankful for the
historical legacy that
is now available through

"God creates out of nothing.
Therefore, until a man is nothing,
God can make nothing out of him."

Martin Luther

May God bless you as you dig for yourself
into the treasures of your eternal destiny.

Many people are asking important questions, searching for answers to help to make sense out of what we see happening around us.

From a wealth of information which has crossed our desk over the years, these authors have taught us that each of us is responsible for what we individually believe. Life seems so complicated and busy and so much is recommended to read, watch and listen to, that we were grateful that these authors have helped us gain one of the most important tools; how to simplify our Bible Study and we are glad to share it here:

1. Bible Translation.
2. Bible Concordance,
3. Bible Dictionary,
4. Bible Atlas.

Some of these authors are personal acquaintances, yet some of the studies come from subscriptions, magazines, papers and books. Full credit is clearly given to all of the authors. We believe the writings are entered accurately, however, if something doesn't look like it should, please Email us so we may go back to the source to make sure that it was entered correctly! Where we may not have specific permission to put an author on the site, if that author requests it, we will remove it.

May we all pray for the wisdom to discern truth as it is in Jesus while we individually search for truth.


We have also a more sure word of prophecy;
whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn,
and the day star arise in your hearts: Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture
is of any private interpretation.
For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man:
but holy men spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost."
2 Peter 1:19-21
