Thanks for inspiration. Your magazine is the best. I'm always inspired after

I really enjoy On Mission. Please send a subscription to my brother. He's
serving a very long sentence in prison, but instead of feeling sorry for
himself, he views himself as on a special mission field for God. God is using
Good morning. What a beautiful day God has made! I have been going to write
you for several months. I want to express how much I dislike the covers and
other cartoons you are using in what has always been a favorite magazine. I
find I do not enjoy reading the magazine because of this. Do we not have real
live people doing God's work?

While our article coverage almost always includes examples of "real live
people" we have intentionally chosen to utilize illustration for a specific
reason: We want to emphasize that sharing Christ is every Christian's mission.
A photo emphasis on the work of others can communicate that the reader's role
is simply to read about what someone else is doing in Christ. We hope to help
readers find their mission and their unique role in sharing Christ through the
pages of this magazine. Our stories about specific individuals are a way of
celebrating what God is doing and encouraging all of us to find ways to join
Thank you for your generous offer. This could be a very important help to
our little church.

I am a Messianic pastor in Albuquerque, New Mexico. We meet at a Baptist
church here and the pastor gave me a copy of On Mission.
I loved the "Reaching God's chosen people" article (page 48, May-June) and
am very excited about your work in the church and Jewish community. Please keep
me updated on your ministry and possibilities for work here in New Mexico.

I am Director of Church Growth for The Wesleyan church located in
Indianapolis, Indiana. I just completed reading your latest issue of On
Mission. I too have been working on our denominational evangelism magazine that
will be printed this summer.
I enjoyed your magazine so much. Some favorite parts were your 10 questions
that will help you turn conversations to spiritual matters and great ideas for
sharing your faith.
I was so excited when I picked up an issue of On Mission at my local church.
It was new to me and after reading through its pages I wondered where this
magazine had been all my life!
I was especially interested in the "Our Mission" section at the back of the
magazine. I'd like to send you our story.
You're doing a great job with On Mission!

The view from overseas
I just want you to know how grateful I am to have received your magazine.
Being in a Muslim country and so far from North America makes me appreciate and
long for it even more.
The articles are challenging, encouraging and practical. "Jest as I am" and
"Songs from the 'off' mission hymnal" brought laughter to our Women's
Fellowship meeting. We also had a discussion of the "25 natural ways to share
It is such an excellent resource that it's hard to believe it's free, even
if it's only for a limited time.

I'm feasting on the latest issue of On Mission and am enjoying every
article. It is challenging and an eye-opener.
I believe God can use it to help me and my small assembly to stay focused
and share the gospel.
Pastor, Bible Baptist Chapel
I just read the January-February issue of On Mission. It has been a blessing
to me. Especially "The Prince of Egypt." I never thought of using movies for
witnessing, but then I seldom watch them. I do work part-time in a drug and
alcohol rehab center--a place most don't want to work. I have no problem there
as I was saved out of alcohol myself.
There are many places a person can witness to others. One of the best might
be inviting a lost friend over to drink coffee. We can all be mission workers.
We don't have to go out of town.

Regarding page 22 in your most recent publication. Perhaps others have
called it to your attention. "Zounds" is an ancient curse referring to God's
Wounds. It is used in comic strips and comic books but usually not in
church-related periodicals. Probably this is not widely known but it is in the
dictionary and I would not want you to be criticized for what is possibly not
the best choice of expletives.
I like your creative format and colorful artwork. Thanks for a good
We hope and pray that no readers were offended by our use of a term that
we felt represented the energy and enthusiasm of the pop-art genre.
