This is an article from the November-December 1981 issue: Finishing the Task



Enclosed is a check for $31. This is what we collected for the month of July with our "Loose Change Fellowship." We hope to continue to give monthly in this venture. Each time we meet we pray for a country around the world and for you. It has greatly increased our vision.

We would ask that you use the first $300.00 we send you to purchase the Center. We realize this need for you. We have about 20 involved in our fellowship and we want for each of us to be a part of the purchase of the Center. We have been blessed by your ministry.

In His Service with You,

Sunrise Coffeehouse Fellowship Denver, CO

About 2 months ago I started setting aside my loose change as you suggested as a reminder to pray for various countries around the world. I believe God is leading me into missions in the future and I know He will use this little project to direct me to the place He would have me to go.

In Jesus,

I am just now attaching my Hidden Peoples label to my jar and am excited about involving my family of six in this wonderful work, I am also planning to speak to the pastors of our two churches about the challenge of frontier missions...

If, as U.S. Christians we cannot make your dream and the Lord's mandate a reality, we are in a sad state.

Thanks for the Loose Change Fellowship! I hope to have at least 5 friends involved before I leave for Oregon. Then maybe I can talk five people into doing the same thing for Judson!

I ran a snack shop this past week which proved to be quite successful. Enclosed is a portion of the profits.

Kindest regards,

Here is the check for the loose coin fund I have been keeping. I pray every day for the U.S. Center for World Mission. Also I pray daily for the Hidden People using the prayer guide from Mission Frontiers. I believe in the work you are doing. I know God is able to meet every need.

I think your Frontier Missions Ministry is a Godinspired one, The Lord has put it on my heart to do my part. This is why I am writing you. I need more information and also the jar labels to give to other brothers and sisters in Christ, for as we both know the Harvest is Great and the Laborers are so few. Please respond as soon as possible. Thank you and God bless.

Your Brother in Christ,

T.W. Chula Vista, CA

You have really given me an awareness of frontier missions. I've wanted to get personally involved since I first heard your message, but for various reasons, this has never come about. However, I did start saving my loose change and sent for your information. I intend to keep saving my spare change as a daily reminder to pray both for frontier missions and for your program.

This daily prayer routine has been a continuous blessing to me.

Thank you,

P.W. Riverside CA

My wife and I have been reading together your "Mission Frontiers" magazine, and praying earnestly every day for you and your good project.

We have decided and agreed together to give each $50 to the other and send the combined amount, $100 to you now in this time of emergency (instead of Christmas gifts to each other).

May we suggest that you consider this plan and suggest that you use the plan in writing to friends and relatives of staff members, using with reference to us as anonymous donors. The results should be several hundred dollars.

Lovingly and prayerfully,

W. & G.S, Paradise, CA

I am a recipient of your published correspondence. Several years ago I contributed $15.95 to become one of your official donors. Recently I sent in a second contribution, for $30.00. I knew you could use the funds in light of the financial difficulties you are currently passing through. Reading your recent bulletin, I felt moved to make a further contribution. Enclosed, therefore, you will find another check for $30.00 I am doing this because I do not want to see your visionary undertaking undermined by a lack of financial support. You will be in my prayers.

With Christian regards,

I am a retired missionary from Pakistan and do not have the millions I world love to send but do care very much about the multitude upon which the Light has not yet shined, and know the Lord is able to do above all we can ask or think; and believe He will send His chosen ones "into all the world" to preach the Gospel. The vision 1k gave for world mission EL will surely bring to pass.

Sincerely in faith,

M. B. A. Washington, IA

301 Just finished reading your book, "Once More Around Jericho," and I thought it was so inspiring!! Such faith and trust, God cannot help but reward.
Instead of the $15.95, we are sending you $100 to help to reach your goal. We will be praying that all of your needs will be provided. What a great work   to reach that "hidden" peoples.

God bless you richly as you move ahead.

Sincerely in Christ,

J. E. K. Dearborn, MI

When I heard about your financial plight I was both saddened and emboldened. I was sad to think of the many Christians in this country who do not care enough about the Lord to be missions minded or live sacrificially so that others might have resources to enable others to hear the Gospel. But I was emboldened to be sacrificial so that I might be a good steward of His resources, Please pray for our church.., and the evergrowing Missions Coordinating Fellowship... Pray that the church as a whole would become missions minded and sacrificial in their giving to missions and missionaries. The enclosed amounts to one day's salary on a job the Lord literally gave to me Praise Him! I hope that more will come soon. Keep on running the race for Him.

With you in my prayers,


I'm looking forward to hearing more about your work and in greater detail. I really appreciate what I read in the letter about God's inability to lead us on the basis of facts we do not have. I want to hear more facts not only from God's word but from those who are carrying out His work.

I did not write this check and relenquish $15.95 unbegrudgingly. I'm just another selfish American who continues to use flimsy excuses like "I don't have the time," or here's a good one ... "I can't afford it," or just plain "I can't." You people need to pray for people like me. Well anyway...
