In 1859 a conference in Battle Creek voted that Andrews should assist J. N. Loughborough with tent evangelism in Michigan.

He returned the follow year (1860) to Iowa. During this second period in Iowa his two children were Charles (b. 1857) and

Mary (b. 1861). In June 1862 John left Waukon to conduct evangelistic meetings in New York where he helped to found the

New York Conference. In February 1863 Angeline and their two children joined them in New York, and while there they had two

more children both of whom died from tuberculosis.In 1864 Andrews was chosen as the denominational representative to the

Provost Marshall General in Washington, D.C., to secure recognition for the denomination as noncombatants. On May 14, 1867,

Andrews was elected the third president of the General Conference (until May 18, 1869) after which he became editor of the

Review and Herald (1869-1870). In 1872 Angeline died from a stroke after which John moved with his two children to South Lancaster,

Massachusetts, where his children could stay with the Harris family.Two years later he left with his two children, John and Mary,

as the first official Seventh-day Adventist missionaries to Europe. They assisted in founding a publishing house in Switzerland and

an Adventist periodical in French, Les Signes des Temps (1876). In 1878 Mary caught tuberculosis and died soon after receiving

treatment at the Battle Creek Sanitarium. Andrews died on Oct. 21, 1883 and is buried next to J. H. Waggoner in Basel, Switzerland.

In 1960 Andrews University was named in his honor.Adventist Pioneer Library, Ellen G. White Writings, Comprehensive Research

Edition 2008, “When men come in who would move one pin or pillar from the foundation which God has established by His Holy Spirit,

let the aged men who were pioneers in our work speak plainly, and let those who are dead speak also, by the reprinting of their

articles in our periodicals. Gather up the rays of divine light that God has given as He has led His people on step by step in the way of truth.

This truth will stand the test of time and trial.” — Ellen G. White, Ms 62, 1905, The Retirement Years, 21.
