As is the continued tradition, the first E-Mail Ministry message of the month is my chance to talk to all of you about E-Mail Ministry and other related items. So here goes the October edition:

Thought you might be interested in the following from the Monday, August 23, 1999 ‘Our Daily Bread’, published by RBC Ministries, Grand Rapids, MI 49555-0001. According to the story musical genius Johann Sebastian Strauss, “Often at the bottom of a manuscript he would write the letters INDNJC, standing for the Latin words ‘In Nomine Domini Nostri Jesu Christi,’ ‘In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.’ Thanks Bob.

HOW DID YOU HEAR ABOUT E-MAIL MINISTRY?
Most people heard about E-Mail Ministry from friends, family, etc. If you heard about E-Mail Ministry by some other means please let me know. I am curious to know how people ‘tripped’ onto E-Mail Ministry. If you know of other ways to advertise E-Mail Ministry let me know.

THE REWARD WHEN YOU FORWARD E-MAIL MINISTRY MESSAGES:
As always, I encourage you to forward the E-Mail Ministry messages to family, friends, work associates, etc. Occasionally, I get comments from people when they subscribe indicating how much they appreciate people thinking of them and sending them the messages. Here is one comment I recently received.
“Thanks for your ministry. I always look forward to the stories. God bless you for the time you put in to get them to us. -George J. Miami, FL”
You can make a difference in someone’s life. Follow God’s lead on who you should send the messages to!
E-Mail Ministry has 758 subscribers. An increase of 168 from last month!
I would also like to thank everyone who sends me a message for use by E-Mail Ministry. Due to the large volume of messages submitted, I cannot thank you individually. But please know that I deeply appreciate all of you and your support of this ministry.
