(but not free of cost!)
Many of the ministries that we have listed send out their material free-of-charge. Other ministries do place a subscription price upon their publications. Those who have no subscription price do enclose an envelope with their mailing, anticipating that those who want to receive it will be willing to help meet the expenses. We encourage you to recognize that you get nothing for nothing. If you receive material from these ministries with an envelope enclosed, please do your part in supporting the ministry. If you do not meet the cost, they must!
For example, our Issues, Etc. Journal circulation has expanded to nearly 3,500 copies. We continue to send out this publication free-of-charge with an envelope enclosed. It costs us about $15 per year for each copy we send out. The monies received from gifts, tape, and book orders does not nearly meet the cost. While we recognize that there are some who cannot afford to give anything, there are those who can. We are at a point of having to consider applying a subscription price. Would you consider covering your cost for 1997 by sending Issues, Etc. $15?
The Journal comes to you free-of-charge, but not free of cost.
