some of the many letter we process each day

A Compilation of a few key quotes.

"Since starting The Great Controversy, I have been unable to put it down. This I feel should be required reading for all professing Christians, its educational value is beyond measure, and its warning for today’s church and society profound, what I have read is a revelation to me…. We should not be complacent and think our freedom will always be so, there are already signs threatening this freedom. The religious hate law is just the beginning. This is why I consider this book is so important for today’s believers.” Lancashire

“I am no longer considering Sunday as Sabbath day because I have seen the light – Saturday is the correct day…….”

“Looking forward to reading the very popular “Great Controversy”. Thank you for your services.” England.

“You recently send me ‘free of charge’ The Great Controversy by Mrs. E. G. White. I would like to say what an inspired book it is. Mrs. White must have been a lovely Christian lady. The book greatly reveals the battle between good and evil. I have been reading it time and time again. She was a great student of the Bible. My knowledge of the English language is limited, yet I understand most of what she says. If would be wonderful if everyone would read it, but sadly this will never be. The truth is they would think it science fiction. I enclose £5 as a thank you for sending me this book. God bless you in spreading the Truth. I don’t want any more books as this one will last a lifetime.” From Blackburn in Lancashire.

"I know The Great Controversy is right ..P.S. Steps to Christ is most excellent. I believe God is blessing me." Nr. Launceston Cornwall.

Many thanks for your free copy of Mrs. E. G. White’s book “The Great Controversy” which is by far the best in reading one can find…..” from Accrington.

I'm finding my first year at university full of the snares of evil. It is only the glimmer of the righteous path that guides me. Now that I have found God, I am fearless and invincible before those that wish to lead me astray. The wounds from their sharp clutches have been healed in the Lords radiance. The teachings and principles in Mrs. White's book have become the very foundations on which I will build my life upon. I feel enlightened!.............." Leeds

It is also wonderful, to be able to pass one copy on.

Today we received a letter from a Pentecostal minister in the south of England requesting 5 copies of one end time book and also 3 Copies of The Great Controversy. Praise God for this! Lets hope he shares these books with his congregation and that many souls will find Christ. It is most inspiring to see truth filled literature going to other faiths.

I pray the Great Controversy will enlighten her about the “holy mother” and the Catholic church.

A letter from the Dorset area:

"A friend of mine has recently written to your organisation for a copy of a free publication [The Great Controversy]. My friend is very pleased and has recommended that I should write away for a personal copy. I look forward to your reply with anticipation." Mrs. C.P.

and maybe this was the friend:-

“Many thanks for the copy of "The Great Controversy" which I received yesterday. I have hardly been able to put it down… My eyes have certainly been opened in the last 24 hours or so since beginning to read this book. I am finding it difficult not to get carried away…” Mr. T.G. Dorset.

“P.S. I have waited such a long time for something like this, Thank you and God bless.” Written on a reply slip. “I am just writing to say, how much I have enjoyed reading (The Great Controversy). My friend told me about it, and everything she said about the book is true. I was brought up with the Catholic faith, but when I was old enough to please myself I just turned away completely. All my life I always felt, (even when I was very young) that things weren’t right. But now at the age of 55, I am a born again Christian, and your book has helped me realise that I was right. I also realise that I’ve never really turned away from God, (Just Man). Thank once again.” [The lady also requested the postal Bible courses]

“Many thanks for the copy of The Great Controversy….”

“You so kindly sent us a leaflet for a free copy (of The Great Controversy) which we sent for – and it is quite the most wonderful God inspired book I have ever read, after my King James Bible of course. Thank you! We now require a copy for a minister whom we met……….. Many many thanks and God bless you.” From a lady in Wales

“Many thanks for the books Patriarchs and Prophets and Desire of Ages. Many questions have been answered and understood. Now I would be much obliged if you could send me Ministry of Healing by E.G. White……… Mrs E. G. White I find writes in such a way as it makes the particular subject stand out and become alive, very absorbing. Could you furnish me with information about Mrs. E. G. White. Yes I have read Patriarchs and Prophets and Steps to Christ. Very good! Have not come in contact with such an inspired writer. Look forward to Ministry of Healing, which I am sure will be just as high in standard. Certainly packs a punch if you know what I mean!” From a lady in Tyne-and-Wear.

“Thank you for the free copy of “The Great Controversy” which I shall find most interesting. As a regular guide at the Abbey I feel a great need to widen my knowledge of the faith. Yours sincerely”

"Thank you so much for the book The Great Controversy. It is one of the best books I've ever read. Thank you once again." Lady in Wales

"We asked for a copy of The Great Controversy as we were interested to know what it contained, and so far as we have read the book, we have found some fresh light on past church history." Tintagel Cornwall

God increases (to God be the glory)Back in the summer of 1994, Jonathan Bennett from England (aged 16) was invited to go to a camping weekend to distribute literature in a nearby town. Once all was organised for this weekend and all packed, Jonathan's friend dropped him and 2 other friends at the camp organiser's house for the weekend to begin. The camp organiser drove the three boys to the camp site with the car packed with all the essentials...

Lessons from the Folding Machine Do you remember what was the most often used way that Jesus taught the multitude - parables. The people could remember Jesus' words every time they saw the everyday things that Jesus spoke about. (I can well remember one parable from years ago, about fruit picking)...

An Impressive Scene In the visions of the night a very impressive scene passed before me. I saw an immense ball of fire fall among some beautiful mansions, causing their instant destruction. I heard someone say: "We knew that the judgments of God were coming upon the earth, but we did not know that they would come so soon." Others, with agonized voices, said: "You knew! Why then did you not tell us? We did not know." On every side I heard similar words of reproach spoken.

From Rags to... Better Rags For many of us when it comes to finances and the Lords' work we think however will enough money come in to finish the Lords work. But rarely do we think what more can I do to help sacrifice for my Lord and raise more finances to save souls in the Kingdom of heaven. If Christ could have this attitude:- "Jesus did not count heaven a place to be desired while we were lost." DA416 then how much more can we do for our Lord?
