Mission Printing
Continues to Need
Your Help

Mission Printing has plans to spread the word of God to even more areas of the world in the coming years and we need your help!

Financial support is the part of our planning with which Mission Printing needs your immediate and ongoing help. Our donations over the last few years have not increased and, at times, have decreased due to the economic times and deaths of several donors. While our donations as a whole have not increased, our expenses have. As an example of this increase in our expense, you will notice from the chart below that our shipping expense has increased over 3 times from previous years.

Shipping Expense for January–March

$16,279.69 for 5,038 lbs.

$9,514.82 for 9,514 lbs.

$21,042.46 for 21,042 lbs.

average of $3.23 per lb.

$1.00 per lb.

$1.00 per lb.

We are in need of

your help!

We realize Mission Printing is not unique in this position and that you might be aiding other worthwhile and Christ–centered organizations. We are not asking you to cut back on any of your other commitments. We are simply asking you to increase your financial aide to Mission Printing, if only by a few dollars. People often feel they can't give much and that it really wouldn't help to give so little. I am here to let you know that your “two minas” go further that what Satan would like you to think. If we had 500 people that could give $10 a month it would increase our yearly donation by $60,000! Don't let Satan convince you that your gift can't go far. Your small gift will be felt around the world! God bless you all and may you continue to experience the glory of God.

A treasure from heaven was poured on our doorstep the day we received the material from Mission Printing!

You are great brethren! There is no doubt that this material has increased our scope of knowledge and the expansion of our efforts to win more souls for the Lord. Thank you brethren for all that you are doing to help us get to the shore of heaven.

We are short of words to express our profound thanks to Mission Printing for the material which you sent this congregation. By the grace of God, we will do our best with the material to teach and propagate the gospel.

Enugu, Enugu State, Nigeria

The material which you sent has been distributed to people throughout our area. We received many testimonies from people that have received the studies from Mission Printing. We appreciate the encouragement that Mission Printing continuously provides Nigerians through the “printed page.”

We are so very happy for Mission Printing! My sponsor (Brother Emery Cathey of Emory, TX) referred me to you. Your material has become very important to our Bible training school. Your material is also being used by preachers to grow in knowledge and to aid them in spreading the word of God.

Manama, Bahrain
Michael Gomez

Today is a wonderful day for the Lord! I just received the Mission Printing material. I can't imagine receiving (4) boxes all the way from US! I thank you very much for these materials. They will really help in our ministry here in Bahrain. I kindly ask for your prayers for the start of my personal evangelism here in Bahrain.

In fact, I have conversed with some “Ang Dating Daan” (cult) members here for two weeks now. It seems our conversations would go to debates. May the Lord God shower us with patience and temperance in all things to “be set for the defense of the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ."

Machilipatinam, Krishina District, Andhra Pradesh, India

Church of Christ provides clean drinking water to people and then provides
them with a Bible and Mission Printing material to meet their spiritural thirst.

Adelakoeville, Volta Region, Ghana
Mac–Thompson Gbeti

Thank you for the excellent Bible studies. Students form the Volta School of Evangelism utilized them in their recent outreach efforts.

I wanted to share the story of Arnold Agbodza and his conversion. Arnold is in his last year of high school and hence still under his parents control. After studying the Bible with him, he said that he wanted to become a Christian, but there was a problem. His father always gave Arnold and his brothers work to be done in the fields on Saturdays and Sundays. Arnold realized that he would not be able to attend worship very often, if at all. So, he didn't want to venture into it at all, if he couldn't make a total commitment.

After a long discussion, we decided to help him with his work slated for Sunday or Saturday. His father agreed and the following Sunday, 12 men from our congregation arrived and worked to the satisfaction of the young man's father. Arnold's father exclaimed, "I have never seen Christians love like that before! It was amazing!"

That Sunday Arnold arrived at worship with his 3 brothers and he was baptized into Christ. After worship, we had a Bible study with the brothers and prayed that they would imitate their brother's decision.

We all went to their house after our study and the father was overjoyed and we told him that we wish he could also join them. He asked me to come for a Bible study on Friday and I prayed that the Lord will touch his soul!

I am sincerely grateful unto YOUR partnership in the Lord's work here in Johannesburg, South Africa. You are truly a great inspiraton to us all.

Your efforts are not in vain.

Morrison, TN
WBS Teacher
Dorothy Good

Thank you very much fo rthe two boxes of Bible books with my WBS lessons.

I started this work 20 years ago. I sent 20 introductory lessons to Nigeria on October 27, 1987. I do not know the number of my students, but I did keep up with the lessons I sent. I have sent 35,000 lessons with many Bible booklets and tracts over the years.

You are doing a great mission work.

Abakaliki, Ebonyi State, Nigeria
Emmanuel Usani

I am a student in the School of Biblical Studies that is affiliated with the Bear Valley Bible institute of Denver, CO. I am asking Mission Printing to help me with some study material that will help me in my studies and also to teach others.


John & Felix Aghodza, brothers of the young man mentioned in the report from Mac–Thompson Gbeti, were baptized on April 4!

Edjekota–Ogor, Delta State, Nigeria
Edjekota Church of Christ

The members of the Edjekota Church of Christ are very happy and grateful over the material which Mission Printing sent us to promote the Lord's work in our local area.

Mission Printing's material has really helped people in Nigeria. I am writing to my sponsoring congregatin today about the assistance you are offering me!

We vow to use the material effectively and appropriately for the promotion of the gospel. We have boxed up some of the song books and other material and sent them to local congregations in the interior coastal region of the state.

We find the material to be very useful in our daily evangelism efforts and personal study. During our recent gospel campaign, seventeen congregations joined us to evangelize the town, and it was material from Mission Printing and the Truth for the World that was used to reach the souls.

“A treasure from heaven was poured on our doorstep the day we received the material from Mission Printing!”

Baguio city, Philippines
Midtown Church of Christ
Jonathan “JoJo” Ramos

Truly I thank God always for brethren like you all. Mission Printing has been a great blessing to us, especially here in the mountainous region of the Philippines.

The Lord's work, through you gifts, is going great!

By the way your songbook is a great help fo rus here! We had a huge need for your songbooks because we were having a difficult time carrying the big, hardbound songbooks to areas where we preach. We hope we can increase the supply of the songbooks. We use the songbooks with our congregations, evangelism campaigns, home devotional, and Bible studies. The need is great!

From the bottom of my heart, I truly thank God for Mission Printing for sharing adn being part of our ministry. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING OUR BRETHREN! We love you!

May our loving Father bless all our work with abounding love as you are already showing us in the Philippines.

Vendall Dollarhide Assaulted

I wanted to take this time to update everyone on my assault. On March 5, I was attacked on the campus of UTA. I was beaten severly on my head causing me to lose consciousness at least once. After regaining consciousness, I fought with the assilant and in the process received numerous lacerations from a knife on my arms and body.

As a result of the attack, I received 3 fractures in my face, a fractured rib, a blood clot, and an inflamed artery in my face. I am experiencing bleeding, headaches, and other side effects. The doctors believe that the recovery will take 3 or more months.

I am still alive and working with Mission Printing and preaching! I wanted to thank everyone for the cars, calls, and prayers. God has blessed me over the years and His blessings are ever increasing!

There is a righteous way to serve God and there is an unholy way that does not serve God! What is right and what is wrong? What is righteous and what is unholy? Who decides what is right and what is wrong? ONLY GOD!

I John 4:13–17 declares, “By this we know that we abide in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit. And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son as Savior of the world. Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him. Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world.

How do yu acknowledge that Jesus is the Son of God? If your answer is that you simply need to say that you believe and pray for Jesus to come into your heart, then you need to read Matthew 7:21–23. It simply states that, “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’ ”

If you answer is that you OBEY GOD'S COMMANDS, then God bless you, because you will find the crown of life in heaven! We cannot pick and choose what we will or will not obey! Who are we to presume anything that is not revealed in Scripture!

THERE IS A RIGHT WAYand THERE IS A WRONG WAY to become a child of God! The way to become a part of God's Kingdom and to enter into heaven is not gray or flexible. You can be lost! You can be saved! You can be lost again!

God's Word does not shift like the sands on the beach, or go through phase shifts like the moon! God's Word is constant through the ages! We are not free to add or take away from God's Word. Revelation 22:18–19 states: “For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book; and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

Today's world and it's “religions” teach whatever makes people happy and gives them “warm fuzzies” inside. “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables” (II Timothy 4:3–4).

The “world's religious” attempt to convince you that “once saved, always saved.” No where does God's word condone such false teaching! The Bible teaches that someone can be lost after being saved!

“You have become estranged from Christ, you who attempt to be justified by law, you have fallen from grace (Galatians 5:4).

“Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron, forbidding to marry, and commanding to


abstain from foods, which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth” (I Timothy 4:1–3).

“ButI discipline my body and bring it into subjection lest, when I have preached to others, I myself should become disqualified (I Corinthians 9:27).

“Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall (I Corinthians 10:12).

Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God; but exhort one another daily, while it is called ‘Today,’ lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin (Hebrews 3:12–13).

In order to be saved, Satan would have us to merely believe in Jesus and pray for Him to come inside our heart! Again, that is false teaching from man and Satan, not from God! God's inspired word teaches that YOU MUST:

Hear the Word

Romans 10:17

“So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”

Believe the Word

John 8:24

“Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins; for if you do not believe that I am He, you will die in your sins.”

Hebrews 11:6

“But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.”

Repent of your sins

Acts 17:30

“Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent.”

Confess the name of Jesus

Romans 10:10

“Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent.”

Confess the Name of Jesus

Romans 10:10

“For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”

Philippians 2:11

“... every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father”

Be Baptized

Mark 16:16

“He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned”

Acts 2:38

“... Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins: ...”

Acts 22:16

“And now why are you waiting? Arise and be baptized and wash away your sins, calling on the name of the Lord.”

Your life as a child of God then begins. Until all these commands (provisions) are met, you are lost! God does not want anyone to be lost.

Mission Printing Adds New Study

Mission Printing is constantly searching for ways to improve our ministry in order to spread more of God's word around the world. With our mission of "world evangelism by the printed page" in mind, we have added some excellent material. We are proud to be printing and distributing the Do–It–Yourself Home Bible Study writeen by Robin Wolfe of the Lewisville Church of Christ, Lewisville, TX. This study is an excellent way to help someone study the word of God. It is written in a very simple way, but is filled with some of the most powerful and life–changing material that you will find. Robin Wolfe is a talented Christian writer and someone that is dedicated to reaching lost souls no matter when they may be found. Mission Printing is honored to be associated with Sister Wolfe and this Christ–centered book.

We have also made some change to the covers of the Mission Printing studies. Every book, no matter the subject, with include th eplan of salvation on the inside of the front cover. Following the plan of salvation found in God's word is the only way to gain a home in heaven and the crown of life. Despite what the world would have us believe, there is only one road that leads to God and eternal peace.

We also want to spread the news of the Mission Printing work. On the inside of the back cover, we are now printing a description of our ministry and our mission. We want stateside and foreign congregations to know that we are here to help them in their work in the harvest fields.



I will live it TRUSTINGLY!

“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for you are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.”

John 8:12
“... He who follows me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”

Ephesians 5:2
“And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us. ...”


I will live it OBEDIENTLY!

Matthew 7:21
“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he does the will of My Father in heaven.”

John 14:15
“If you love Me, keepMy commandments.

Acts 5:29
“... We ought to obey God rather than men.”



Ephesians 4:32
“And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God in Christ forgave you.”

Colossians 4:5–6
“Walk in wisdom; toward those who are outside, redeeming the time. Let your speech always be with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer each one.”

I Thessalonians 5:11
“Therefore comfort; each other and edify one another, just as you also are doing.”


I will live it DILIGENTLY!

I Corinthians 16:13
“class="strong">Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong.”

Galatians 5:1
Stamd fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free ...”

I Thessalonians 3:8
“For now we live, if you stand fast; in the Lord.”


I will live it COURAGEOUSLY!

Joshua 1:9
“... Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you whereever you go.”

Romans 8:37
“Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors; through Him who loved us.”

By Kristen Kiser, 17 years old, 11th grade
Keller Church of Christ, Keller, TX

II Timothy 3:16–17 — “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.”

I believe that God is my Father and Creator mainly because it tells us so in the Bible, which is God breathed. However, this is not the only reason I believe. God showed us, His creation, that He loved us enough as the Father to send His Son so we can be in heaven with Him.

He guides men on earth, yet still leaves them free to govern their own thoughts and make their own

decisions. Whether or not we choose to believe God's words or the worldly path is governed by our thoughts themselves. We must choose for ourselves in which way we will follow what God says.

Although there are many trials along the way, God is right there with us to hold our hand through everything, if we so choose. If we love God with all our heart, mind, and soul and believe in Him and in Jesus' death, burial, and ressurection, then He will unite us in baptism and we must still continue to praise Him. Our praise must also follow the pattern which the Lord has commanded throughout Scripture. We must worship from the inside of our heart through song and prayer to Him.
