Taiwan & Thailand Trip 2001: In August, John Grubb will be preaching a series of lessons in various cities in Taiwan and Thailand.

Brother Grubb is worthy of support for this godly labor. He needs to raise $3,000 for this trip. Contributions may be sent to: Grubb Mission Fund, P.O. Box 5048, Duluth, GA 30096. John may be contacted via email at [email protected].
Truth for the World Building Construction: Truth for the world has a short but very productive history. Beginning in February of 1992 Truth for the World has been under the eldership of the Knight Arnold Church of Christ in Memphis, Tennessee (now the Forest Hill Church of Christ), the eldership of the Olive Branch Church of Christ in Olive Branch, Mississippi, and is now under the eldership of the Duluth Church of Christ in Duluth, Georgia.
Truth for the World is a mission work of the churches of Christ and a total approach to world evangelism that uses every aspect of the media to reach the more than six billion lost souls of the world. What is Truth for the World doing to reach these lost souls? Truth for the World broadcasts the gospel via AM, FM, and shortwave radio and via television to every major continent in the world. Truth for the World prints five Bible correspondence courses, sixty-two English gospel tracts, thirty Chinese tracts and a quarterly teaching paper. Our courses are distributed to hundreds of thousands, we produce nearly one million tracts per year, and send 33,000 teaching papers out each quarter. At present, these are going to 157 nations throughout the world. Truth for the World maintains an internet website. Available at this website are the Bible correspondence courses, audio sermons, tracts, articles, and various other gospel and Bible helps. Truth for the World plans gospel campaigns to various areas throughout the world each year for the purpose of follow-up, edifying the brethren, and evangelistic outreach. Our goal is to fulfill the "Great Commission" and to present the gospel of Christ to every person of every nation of our world. "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature" (Mark 16:16). Working together, this can be done (1 Corinthians 3:8,9).
The work of Truth for the world now has a special need which will enhance our work together for the Lord. Truth for the World needs a new facility.
We are in the process of remodeling and expanding an existing building of 4,000 square feet to 10,000 square feet. The cost of the construction is $450,000.00, of which we have $341,000.00. We are in urgent need of $109,000.00 and therefore call upon you for your generous, enthusiastic, and prayerful financial support. This building is on the grounds of the Duluth Church of Christ and will take care of our present needs as well as allow for future growth.
Can you help Truth for the World, dear brethren? Do you know of other congregations and individuals whom you might encourage to help us in this work? No contribution is too large or to small. We encourage you, however, to give as much as you can. Your contribution will be an investment in the future of the Lord's church around the world. It will be a commitment to preaching the gospel to every creature in the world.
"What Can I Do to Help?" Send a tax deductible monetary contribution. Make your check payable to Duluth Church of Christ and mark it "TFTW Building Fund." A receipt will be sent for each contribution. Contact churches, elders, preachers, and other brethren and encourage them to help. Pray for this special need and our efforts and thank God for His blessings. Send your contribution to: TFTW Building Fund, Duluth Church of Christ, 3239 Duluth Highway, Duluth, GA 30096-3652.
