“When we were in Ethiopia, one family sent their old Beano comics to Philip every once in a while. HE AND MANY OTHERS HAD A WONDERFUL TIME WITH THEM!”

~ D & J Brown, English former missionary to Ethiopia.

“On the note of discouragement – when you send out 160 newsletters (at great expense from your support) and only 2 or 3 acknowledge receiving them.”

~ T & E Burns, Aussie missionaries in PNG.

The latest praise music CD’s, MONETARY GIFTS THAT ESPECIALLY HELPED ME AS A FEMALE IN A MUSLIM COUNTRY E.G.; MONEY SO THAT I COULD JOIN A HOTEL POOL CLUB AND GO SWIMMING IN THE HOT SUMMER.. Funny children’s books, Christian books…”

~ J James, Aussie former missionary in Pakistan, the Philippines and Seychelles.

“We have a few friends back home that we know if we ever need anything at all that we can ask them for help whether it be prayer needs to needed items that we can’t get up this way. Their help in these ways has been so encouraging to us.”

~ S & C Henley, Aussie missionaries in PNG.

“Four years ago, we received a letter from someone on the missions committee from our church, saying that for mission’s emphasis month, they had decided to focus on one missionary per Sunday. For us, they decided to phone us and talk to us during a church service...at the same time, they asked that we send slides to the church so that while we talked, they could watch the slides. It was wonderful. WE FELT SO SPECIAL.”

~ J & C Clavagnier, former Canadian/French missionaries in Niger.
