Thank you for your fine work in presenting the needs of the "hidden peoples" for the gospel of Christ. It was a privilege for us to be able to hear you in our area. We trust that your time here will continue to produce fruit.
Reformed persons have, or should have, a cosmic view of the significance of Christ and His work and kingdom. I was struck during your presentation by the extent to which your view of the world is "populated."
My own view of Christ's Lordship and His universal significance can often tend toward the theoretical or abstract. Thank you for reminding me again that the focus of God's love and the work of Christ is the people of the world, none of whom are hidden to Him.
Sincerely in Christ,
I am excited about giving these Hidden People programs. I shared the movie and gave the presentation four times, and when I go home to Detroit in May I hope to show the movie some more to my home church.
Along with the movie I was sent a "Hidden People Sunday" packet which was very helpful to me; it helped me organize my presentation and emphasize the most important issues.
At my presentation I also handed out "The Last Frontier" paper which is what got me excited about reaching the Hidden People when I first read it.
I am finishing up my third and last semester of teaching art. . . In September I'll start studying missions at Gordon Conwell.
But until I leave America my interest is in making churches aware of the situation of world missions and the great need. Especially I want to teach the high school and college kids.
Fixing our eyes on Jesus,

Yes, I am concerned for the world's "hidden people." My prayer is that the heart of every believer will become a center of world mission to reach out to those who have not heard of Christ.

I have been informed of your organization through a book called Today's Tentmakers by J. Christy Wilson, Jr. I am interested in your program and would like some information regarding the courses you offer. I am a graduate of Rutgers University.
I have been thinking about taking my profession overseas, but my thoughts are only at the beginning stage. I 'know I would need some kind of training before I could go and that is why I am writing to you.
Please send me any information that you can. I would like to visit the Center this summer
-C. C. New Jersey
It's exciting to receive mail from one center which seems to be the hub of the U.S.'s role in missions.
May the vision not only spread, but also the faithfulness of those people who have already caught it. I personally need to grow in the latter area, yet God is working it all out.
"Cease striving and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth." (Psalm 46:10) What a promise! He will do it before returning.
I am continually challenged by the accounts of God's miraculous interventions to continue the USCWM. From the moment I first received information about it, I have become increasingly assured that it represents the foremost effective single vehicle in modern missions, to accomplish the Church's assignment in this world, in this generation.
My wife and I were among the early $15.95 "shareholders." I have attempted to faithfully inform and advocate support for you, in my church, and in [a Bible college] where I am Chairman of the Department of Missions. Be assured of our continued prayer.
A recent small bequest from an aunt's estate now allows us to do a little more. I am enclosing a personal check in the amount of $500 to be applied toward property payments. May the Lord multiply it many times in ministry to the world's Hidden Peoples.
In His grace,
