THE BURNING QUESTION: WHERE DO WE GET THE PRAYER CALENDAR?

lighting the way That was the hot topic this past week… “Where in the world do we get a copy of that China prayer calendar mentioned in last week’s Brigada Today?” :-) Well, unfortunately, I can see why you would ask! Last week’s item “CHINA PRAYER CALENDAR” contained not a shred of a web URL or email address. We went back and searched for the original email and, sure enough, it wasn’t in there either. However, the contributor was johnswem@yahoo.com. So I have a hunch he should be able to help you. Sorry for any confusion!

not symbolPLEASE DON’T SUBSCRIBE US TO YOUR LIST — It’s always better to ask before manually force-adding anyone to your list-serve or mailing list. Recently, tons of well-meaning people have been subscribing Doug to their lists. Since he often travels overseas, he doesn’t join many of those, for obvious reasons (like being charged big-time for overseas access). So as a general rule, please don’t bulk-mail us!

Bulk mail gets deleted immediately — sorry. Nothing personal. We suggest you apply the same standard to everyone. Ask first!

OPCWARNING ABOUT FORWARDING EMAILS — Please, before forwarding any kind of request (even if it says “please send this to all your friends”), please check to make sure it has a VERIFIABLE ORIGIN, a VERIFIABLE PURPOSE, and a VERIFIABLE CLOSURE (OPC). By following this simple approach, many “email viruses” could be nipped in the bud… at least in the Brigada family. More information about the full Brigada OPC protocol is available. Thank you.
