Encouraging Response to Overseas Expansion Program
In July of this year Mission Frontiers began an expansion program aimed at placing MF in the hands of every mission and church leader in the world, particularly third world mission leaders. The following are quotes from letters we received in response to our first mailing of MF to an additional 1600 mission leaders. They reveal the impact MF is having.

Brazil - "We were thrilled to receive your latest Mission Frontiers Bulletin. I have immediately started spreading the insights you have carefully shared, especially your REJOICE chart. Since we are just as concerned about reaching the unreached as you are, we have been sharing the REJOICE chart with all students at our Bible Institute and have plans to gradually make it known to key church and mission leaders in our region. Your 'Fresh News' column brought us much joy..."
