Dear Brother ___________,
I'm glad you wrote again. I received your first message and thought I had replied, but I find that I had not. I'm sorry for the oversight.
I have not located such a statement in Mrs. White's writings. I also asked a colleague of mine here who is extremely knowledgeable about Mrs. White's writings and who can often find references that I cannot. He told me he knows of no such statement from Mrs. White.
This is not a guarantee that never said it. If you or your friend should find such a statement, we would be pleased to learn about it, so that we might be better informed if someone should ask a similar question later. But at the moment, we know of no statement like this.
Sorry I couldn't help more. Thank you for writing, and God bless!

Hello. A friend of mine from church wants to compile a directory of Adventists in the area and their business contact information. He says that EGW said that we Adventists should use one another's services before going to the world for their services. It makes sense. Can you tell me exactly where Sister White said this, please? He doesn't know exactly where she said this. I want to know where she said this so I can tell him because he sent out a letter to church members inviting them to provide him with their business contact information. He might be asked where she said this and I think it's a good idea to be prepared. I also would like to know for myself. I have an old EGW CD and I also have access to the fine Java-based search facility on your web site, but this is a tough subject to search on. I don't have the EGW index books, either. Please advise. Thank you.
Blessings to you,
