    Please send along with this form copies of recommendations from churches which will encouraother churches t o suppor t you r missionary work. There are churches which wil l not allow avisiting missionary to speak unles s a church recommendation can be shown. Since it is impossible fo r any one person to know all Christ ians in the world , this recommendation by a responsible New Testament church is a vital help in persuading others of your worthiness and th e valuof your mission. Mission Services stands ready to help you inform HORIZONS readers aboutyour church recommendations. Since th e church is sending you to the mission field (Acts 13:1-and will help provide the necessary needs on the f ie ld , naturally th e church should share th ecredit in your missionary ministry. One of th e ways that th e church can do this is to share theconviction regarding your missionary minist ry with others. Certainly, their words wil l helpconvince others regarding the worthiness of your work. Please help MISSION SERVICES tospread your news through HORIZONS, Packets and Slide l ibrary by sending your church recommendations as soon as possible. Thanks.
