FRIDAY FAX, Special Edition
February 3, 2009
A News and Information Service for Leaders in North America

1-page PDF Version  

From the editor  
Because of the unavailability of NAD email from Thursday evening this week until Monday of next week, and because of the urgency of this message regarding the Share the Hope broadcast, we are sending this week’s Friday FAX to you a few days early.


WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 2:00 PM ET ON THE HOPE CHANNEL — Pastors and evangelism teams will not want to miss this broadcast. Important planning points for the April 17 meeting will be covered including motivation, pre-work, meeting organization, sermon choices, advertising, handbill selection and much more.

TWO THINGS PASTORS WILL WANT TO SEE IN 2009 — Share the Hope Newsletter and Field School Classes.

Please note:  Churches and pastors in Canada should use 517-423-7491 instead of the 800# to order handbills from the Hamblin Company. Alternate number for Seminars Unlimited is 817-641-3643. 

For USA orders, use: Hamblin Company, 800-274-0016; Seminars Unlimited, 800-982-3344.


The North American Division will be switching email servers over the coming weekend of Feb 6-8. This means that no one having an NAD email account will be able to receive or send email beginning Thursday, Feb 5, at 6:00 p.m. (EST) and continuing through Monday morning, Feb 9. This will be true if everything goes according to plan.

 If you send an email to an NAD account, the recipient will not be able to view or respond to your email during this period of time. Email sent to NAD accounts during this period of time will be stored for delivery on Monday, Feb 9. If the matter is urgent, some other method of communication will need to be used during this period.

 The general phone number for the North American Division is 301-680-6400. The Fax number is 301-680-6464. It would be wise to call before faxing anything.
