Please send along with this form copies of recommendations from churches which will encourage
other churches to support your missionary work. There are churches which will not allow a
visiting missionary to speak unless a church recommendation can be shown. Since it is impos
sible for any one person to know all Christians in the world, this recommendation by a respon
sible New Testament church is a vital help in persuading others of your worthiness and the value
of your mission. Mission Services stands ready to help you inform HORIZONS readers about
your church recommendations. Since the church is sending you to the mission field (Acts 13:1-3)
and will help provide the necessary needs on the field, naturally the church should share the

credit in your missionary ministry. One of the ways that the church can do this is to share their
conviction regarding your missionary ministry with others. Certainly, their words will help
convince others regarding the worthiness of your work. Please help MKSION SERVICES to
spread your news through HORIZONS, Packets and Slide library by sending your church recom
mendations as soon as possible.

Thanks.

I was influenced first to be a riiisEionary at Ozark Bible College v.ith its conven

work. Then I was shown that I had talents that Ood could use. I was influenced by the
dedicated teachers ::t O.B.C. ;;nd by the missionaries I was able to get to know tnere.

My purpose

a Christiim is to spend my life for God that souls might be v/on ond

that I might be i-leasing to God.

My wife has been a great influence on me

is a constant source of strength to

me. It is my desire that together we migltt be a tool in God's h nd.

ho"e to make Ghristirms so that they muy start churches .nd spread the gospel

prayer,

Shere art 100 nillion Qeman speaking people in the world. Our
work has been that of prying open the door of the vast nillions
to give then the nessage of Christ, with Bin as the sole awthority. Our radio progran, over the nost powerful station in
the world, has shown us where the "fields are the whitest." Be
now have over 20 Bible study groups developing into churches.

Tour experience with printing will be of great advantage in


developing our printing ministry. These Bible study groups need
tracts, sermons, booklets and lesson material s, Tou can worfe

easily with the Bngli sh'-speaking saints in Frankfurt and help


serve when tours

be made, covering 9 different nations.

There are no camps. Vacation Bible Schools, or Bible colleges in


Surope, All of these need both printing and leadership.
Consider, as best you can, your experience, areas of interest,
and general qualifi cations. Bow answer the question: "Bith a

realization of the need and knowledge of your own qualifications,


where can you best serve him?" The question, in a very real way,
comes from God,

the future, is predominantly
Chinese. We plan on going there

Formosa is a rather small


island one hundred miles off the

250 miles long and 75 miles wide


If we would compare it with the
size of Missouri we would find
i t is five times smaller. The

amazing thing is that there are


three times as many people as in
Missouritwelve million.

The island got its name when


Portuguese sailors discovered it
in 1517 and said, "Ilha For

Beautiful." From the pictures I
have seen and from what I have
read I can see that this i s a

very appropriate name. The


Chinese name for the island is
"Taiwan."

As I think of working there my


stomach tightens. I wonder if
there will be very much we can
