The ministries of Western Tract Mission are maintained by the donations of God's people. Near the end of each year, we send out an appeal letter. The Mission also makes direct appeals for funds through "Emergency Measure Volunteer" (EMV) letters. The guidelines for this program are:
you must request to be part of this program
only four appeals for funds can be made in any one year to those on the EMV list
each EMVer responds with a gift of at least $1.00.
The Mission issues tax deductible receipts to Canadian donors at the end of each month. If you are an American donor and want tax deductible receipts, you must send your contributions directly to:
The D. M. Stearns Missionary Fund Inc.
Western Tract Account
P.O. Box 1578
North Wales, PA
...with a note requesting that the proceeds be granted by the Missionary Fund to Western Tract Mission. (Please indicate if it is for a particular project, or staff of Western Tract Mission). Checks or money orders must be made out to D. M. Sterns Missionary Fund Inc. They will issue you a tax deductive receipt.
The missionary staff receive a salary that is dependent upon the gifts of individual supporters. The staff stay in contact with the support teams through prayer letters and personal visits.
We encourage Christians to include the Mission in their estate planning. Also, you should have a current will. Investigate life insurance as a long term means of supporting Christian missions. Often times proper planning will save you tax dollars and increase your giving to the Lord's work.
The Mission has a Memorial Plan whereby your gift to Western Tract in memory of a deceased individual is used in the production and distribution of literature. A sympathy card is mailed to the family on your behalf. If you are interested in this idea, please write for a copy of the Memorial Plan.
BIBLE CORRESPONDENCE OPPORTUNITIES
For those of you who enjoy grading papers or writing letters, you may be interested in joining our Bible Correspondence team in correcting lessons, becoming a Bible Correspondence teacher, or helping in other ways, like stamping our address on envelopes. In order to be involved in this Department, you first would need to fill out the Membership Application Form and then upon acceptance, you would be able to work together with us if there is an opening.
PUBLICATIONS DEPARTMENT OPPORTUNITIES
Do you enjoy fellowshipping with other believers while working together with them? Once every three months our Reflections publication, which tells others about what God is doing through people like you and Western Tract Mission, needs to be collated. If you are interested in helping in this area, please call our office at 244-0446 and let us know. We will then put your name on a list of volunteers that we can call to do this work.
PUBLIC RELATIONS SERVICE OPPORTUNITIES
Through the Western Tract Ministries, a lot of people can be reached for Christ, but not without many believers like you who have a burden for lost souls. As others become aware of how they can spread the gospel by making use of the different ministries through Western Tract Mission, more people could be won to Christ. Would you consider praying about whether or not God would have you become a Mission Representative in your province or state on behalf of Western Tract Mission?
