OPEN LETTER FROM OPERATION WORLD AUTHOR
“Greetings, and thanks for Brigada!
“Thought I would drop you a line about progress towards completion of OW.
“For prayer: Operation World nears completion, but in the final months before our deadline of 30 June 2001 we must squeeze in about 6 months of work! We value prayer. The huge printing press in the USA is booked for July and we cannot miss our long-fixed slot. Publication is due in early September and the book will be launched on Logos 2 in London Sept 8 and at the EFMA/IFMA jamboree in Florida a few days later. Pray that this may happen! It involves five of us working flat out – me often 14 hours a day.
“Progress to date. We have now completed the draft of the text for every country, and these have been distributed to thousands of respondents for checking. This edition will be the most checked of any hitherto – because of the gift of e-mail, but mistakes, unnecessary errors needlessly painful comments are all possible for we are human! Please pray for objectivity and incisiveness as well as speed!
“We are now writing up the Special Ministries and the Regional summaries. I have just completed Africa and am now tackling the Americas then comes massive, complex Asia.
“In this edition we are beginning the text on most countries with Answers to Prayer – God has done so much in our world over the past decade and we want to ensure He gets the glory for His power revealed in answer to our prayers! Regional totals emerging show that for Evangelicals the 1990s was probably the greatest harvest ever.
Yours in Jesus,
Here at Brigada, we hold Patrick in the highest respect, so when he takes time to personally write and ask for prayer, we listen! So we urgently covet your prayers on his behalf and on that of the entire OW staff! Please take a moment right now to remember his requests!

PLEASE 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.

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