In light of the possible deficit in the Bd. of Missions budget, we are trying to economize where we can. One item you can help us with is the SECRET PLACE. We spent $115 last year and took in $27.
In order to continue to supply the SECRET PLACE, we need to know HOW MANY regular issues and HOW MANY large print issues are needed. Please complete the attached form and return to a member of the Bd. Of Missions or to the Church Office. A contribution to offset the cost is greatly appreciated.
Your Bd. Of Missions

regular/large print (circle one) SECRET PLACE.
