God's Fellow Workers, Inc., is an non-profit
missionary organization, incorporated under the
laws of the Commonwealth of Kentucky, whose
express purpose is to promote and to carry on
the cause of Christ, to preach and teach Christ,
and to establish congregatons dedicated to that
same cause and purpose.
Why God's Fellow Workers? Taken from third
John verse eight, that we are fellow workers
for the truth if we support or participate in
the work of Christ, we feel that this title is

ally supporting God's Fellow Workers, Inc., or
other missionary efforts and also by sharing the
Gospel in your own home town.

France

European cottAtry ,but is now experiencing a
strong communist influence in Its government.
France is a major industrial and agricultural
nation and plays a major leadership role in
Western Europe.
Although France maybe strong
economically and politically, it is very weak
spirturally.
With a population of over 53
million, France is approximately 90% Catholic
and it

is estimated that of that 90% only 10%

are considered to be practicing, active church
members.
The remaining 80% are Catholic by
membership only and are living outside the
Catholic faith. Less than 2% of the population
are protestant and the majority of these are
Luthem.

Why France?
A country where marxism,
atheism, and agnosticism dominates the thinking
of the average individual. Years ago, Paul
might have been asked the same question about
Corinth or Ephesus. The world is full of dark
ness and as individual Christians we can only

light the area in which we live, but together
we can reach the distant lands and spread the
light of Christ.

of the mission will all have to be purchased.

Shipping costs for the belongings and material
that will be shipped must also be met.

A start

ing cost of approximately $10,000.00 would be a
tremendous aid to the mission.

God would have us to be good stewards, so why
not have money making money until the mission
aries leave for their fields of service. As a
fellow worker you would provide a monthly taxdeductible contribution to God's Fellow Workers,
Inc. This money would be invested into banking

and business programs to earn interest until
needed by the missionaries. All financial pro
ceedings of this nature, are under direction of
Tom Bnrbrink» the processing agent for the
mission. Your continued support would send and
keep missionaries in foreign service for Christ.
