This chapter discusses the growth and development of the Assyrian Mission from 1890–1896. The scale of the Mission as a whole increased little by little over the first ten years of its existence. At the beginning of 1896 the staff numbered thirteen (six clergy, two laymen, five Sisters). As a result of new building year by year, the main mission compound then comprised two buildings with a total of 33 rooms, plus stables for nine horses and other outbuildings. Besides the two principal establishments in Urmia, the Mission owned the Neesans' house, the summer headquarters in Seir, and the premises of middle schools in Ardishai, Supergan, and Dizateka. Educational work continued to grow. Besides its own schools, in 1894—5 the Mission sponsored the Matran's deacons' school and 111 village schools.
