Definite Acceptance Cards
Mr. Elliott asked the distributors who worked from home to mail out tracts regularly to their mailing list, to write in when they received back the Definite Acceptance Cards from any on their mailing list. That card was filled out by anyone who had decided to accept Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour as a result of reading the tracts they received.
For the distributors, this was their high reward, and they were glad to report the arrival of any Definite Acceptance card in their return mail. Mr. Elliott then published them in the monthly newsletter so everyone else could rejoice at this good harvest too. You might want to count them as you read, and see what number you get.
Here are the notes published about the Definite Acceptance Cards in the April 1959 issue of Western Tract NEWS. This is an opportunity for us to rejoice again at these items of great news.
