Website Up and Running!


Mission Printing is excited to announce the formation of our new website:

The site will give congregations and individuals access to our books and other Bible studies. If you find a book that would be of help to your spiritual walk or that would help someone else, you can print it directly from the site. You will be able to contact us through the website as well. This new avenue will also give people across the globe easy access to Mission Printing.


The website will contain our books in .pdf and .doc file formats. There are also other Bible studies available. The site contains a history of Mission Printing and the vision of Guy and Jessie Lee Caskey. The website will continue to develop as time goes on.

We would like to thank Loy Pressley of the Emory Church of Christ for all his hard work in building the website for maintaining it. We encourage you to visit the website and feel free to give us any feedback.


Thank You From Vendall

I wanted to thank everyone for their prayers and thoughts during my hospitalization in May. The doctors had prepared my family for me to be hospitalized several months or even years. It was only through your prayers that I was able to leave the hospital so soon. I am much better now.

Is is amazing how much we take for granted in this life. God has blessed us with an amazing existence. I have gained a new appreciation for the life that God has given me. My wife and kids mean more to me today than ever before. I have realized that when I married Elizabeth 10 years ago, I gained two of the greatest parents in the world in A.C. & Janet Massey. This time in my life has brought a better appreciation for my church family. Robert Waller, College Hill church of Christ minister, has shown me more about what it means to be a minister of the gospel than I thought possible.

There is a passage that has been placed on my heart and soul during this experience: Since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us" (Hebrews 12:1).

Once again, thank you for your prayers.

I want to introduce you to two of the most precious souls at Mission Printing. Norma Coker, a member of the New York Avenue Church of Christ in Arlington, TX, is one of our most versatile workers. If you were to come by Mission Printing on any given Tuesday or Wednesday, you might find Norma collating, stapling, or checking. She is also one of our proof readers. Sister Coker is able to do it all, and do it very well!

Sister Coker began working with Mission Printing when it was founded in the Caskey home over 26 years ago. She is part of our proud history as well as our future.

Proverbs 31:17 comes to mind every time I see Norma Coker, “She girds herself with strength.” If there is one word that exemplifies this Christ-centered woman, strength would be the one.

Norma is a joy to be around. She is every spiritually minded. Strong convictions, which are founded in God's word, guide her through this life. Sister Coker is dedicated to the lost and their search for the Truth that can only come from knowing our Savior, Jesus Christ.

Daisy Woodward of the College Hill Church of Christ in North Richland Hills,TX is another precious soul that is a vital part of the Mission Printing family. When people think of Sister Woodward, they can't help but picture bright red hair and the biggest smile they've ever seen.

Daisy finds joy in everything she does. She faces the day to come with dignity and power because of her faith in Jesus Christ. "Strength and honor are her clothing; she shall rejoice in the time to come" (Proverbs 31:25). Other verses that seem to be written about Sister Woodward are also found in Proverbs 31: She opens her mouth with wisdom, and her tongue is the law of kindness. Her children rise up and call her blessed. Many daughters have done well, but you exceed them all. Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, but a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised" (vss. 26, 28–30).

I am honored to be associated with such a gentle soul as Daisy. She has lived a life worthy of praise: Give her the fruit of her hands and let her own works praise her in the gates" (Proverbs 31:31).

It is a true blessing from above to be a part of the Mission Printing family and to be associated with these two great women of faith.

I asked a wayward brother

To come to worship with me.

He said he had “stopped coming

Because of hypocrites, don't you see?”

He said, “Ole’ brother so and so

Hurt my feeling in “83,

And sister Susie Snorty

Turned up her nose at me.”

He said, “Some attend every service,

But they're only filling a pew.

Some don't sing, yet other sleep.

Good Christians are very few.

“There there’s that other brother–

He didn't visit when I was down.

Yet still, there's that sister

Who always wears a frown.”

So, Kindly as I could

I said, “It would be a shame

To miss a place in Heaven

‘cause on others you placed the blame.”

And then I told him something

My dad had brought to mind;

“You have to make yourself smaller

Than the ones you hide behind.”

To God be the glory!

A flood begins with a drop of rain.
A habit of sin begins with a single act of sin.
Choose your habits well.
They will either become your power or your prison.

“But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed. Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full–grown, brings forth death.”

James 1:14–15

“But the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self–control. Against such there is no law. And those who are Christ's have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.”

Galatians 5:22– 24

Rod Kyle

Gidday from New Zealand. Our love and appreciation are sent your way for the recent publications shipped to the New Plymouth church of Christ.

We have received 2 boxes of excellent resources,much of which has been already distributed. Thank you so much for this help.

Through our website, we get numerous requests from congregations needing help sourcing sound materials. Can I refer them to you? Also, other N.Z. congregations could also benefit from receiving these publications. Could I send you a list of these congregations for you to include in your next mail out?

I hold fond memories of my time with Bro. Guy Caskey, who began Mission Printing. Guy was my Bible instructor in the School of Practical Evangelism in 1978.

Thank you again and many blessings as you continue this work for the Master.

Greetings and thank you Mission Printing and World Bible School for helping us to know more about the Bible. You have helped us by sending biblical material.

Campbelltown, Australia

Loving greetings to you from Machilipatnam Church of Christ in the precious name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

On behalf of the Southwest church of Christ, thank you so much for the many books you so kindly sent to us recently. These will be of great benefit to the Lord's work here in Campbelltown.

As you probably are aware, getting good sound biblically based material for teaching or reading is not that readily available here in Australia, so your package is an answer to prayers.

Thanks again and may our Lord continue to bless your ministry as you reach out for Him.

“Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature”

Mark 16:15

Jacob & Tiffany Baum:
Preparing for Victoria Brazil

Jacob and Tiffany were married during their studies at Oklahoma Christian University. They met during an O.C. mission trip to Memphis, Tennessee. Serving in the inner city missions gave them the desire to continue working in that field. After their marriage in July 2001, they attended a small church of Christ in Luther, Oklahoma. The helped with the spiritual and physical growth of the Lord's church. While at the Luther congregation, they taught the young children's class, and Jacob was their song leader.

They currently attend the Del City Church of Christ and are heavily involved in the visitation ministry. Jacob teaches a class for the 207rsquo;s group, and Tiffany and Jacob both work with the elementary children on Sunday evenings.

In the summer of 2005, they were blessed to go to Victoria, Brazil on a mission trip. Upon their return from Brazil, they received a letter asking them to return to


Victoria to help with the growth and spiritual development of the church. They accepted the offer and are now planning to move to Brazil in June 2007 with their new baby boy.

In preparing for their mission experience, they have been making presentations attempting to gain financial support, as well as prayers. Their first presentation was to workers at Mission Printing. We look forward to supporting them with Biblical material and prayers. It is always uplifting when young families dedicate their lives to God's work.

The following is a note from Jacob and Tiffany:

Thank you so much for allowing us to come and introduce ourselves and to show what God has planned for us. Everybody was encouraging and it made our first presentation easier on our nerves. We look forward to our next visit. Thanks.

Although I have not yet had time to look through all the material, I want to thank you for the literature which we recently received from you. We are very grateful for your wonderful generosity. I am sorry that I have not written sooner but much of the past month has been taken up with a visit from a group of young Christians from the U.S.

My name is Les Totman. For the 14 years, I have served as the evangelist with the church of Christ in Bankstown, the southwestern region of Sydney, Australia. The congregation is almost 50 years old, having been situated in another suburb before moving to its present location about 15 years ago.

Bankstown is one of the most multicultural regions in Sydney and this is reflected in the congregation which currently has members from more that 15 different national backgrounds. Some of these have had to learn English as their second language.

Particular significance in this part of Sydney is a large Middle Eastern population. A large Mosque was built close to where the congregation formerly had its building.

One of the key factors contributing to the congregation's move was the fact that many local members were moving away to other areas. Eventually, the membership had declined to about 15. They could not afford to employ an evangelist and were finding it difficult to maintain the building as well as carry out preaching, teaching, and other duties. Hence, the decision was made to sell the building, move, invest the sale proceeds by employing a full-time worker. Since then, the congregation has slowly but steadily increased. Local Christians continue to move elsewhere but despite this, we currently have a


weekly attendance of around fifty.

The Bankstown congregation also assists a small church meeting in Wollongong, an industrial town located about an hour's drive south of us. The church there has been without a full-time worker since the late 1980's. Several men from the Bankstown congregation take turns driving to Wollongong on Sundays to preach and teach. Two young men in Wollongong also preach and teach from time to time. One of them is from Ghana in West Africa.

Various other congregations are scattered throughout and around Sydney, a city of four million people. If we take a 200 mile radius with Sydney at the centre, Wollongong in the south and Newcastle in the north, there are 15 congregations, most of which are quite small by U.S. standards. Of these, only two are presently able to fully provide the financial support of a full-time worker. However, there is increasing consideration being given to how we can meet this challenge without simply continuing to rely on the financial support of others.

Churches here in Australia have, for many years, received much generous support from U.S.Christians (both individual and congregations). For that, we owe a debt of gratitude. Your present generosity is one more example of such ongoing kindness. For it, I once again express our thanks. My God bless you in His service and in the service of His people.

Please remember to spread the news of Mission Printing to individual Christians and congregations of the Lord's body. Our director, Vendall Dollarhide, is always ready for an opportunity to share the blessings of this wonderful work. If he has not made a presentation to your congregation, we pray that you will encourage the church leaders to invite him. He is always willing to fill the pulpit in the absence of the preacher and make presentations during class time.

REMEMBER: The success of Mission Printing DEPENDS on you!
