  f news of TOHOKU RURAL EVANGELISM in northern Honshu Japan   PR^01' Paul and Marcia Nielsen: ^60— l^th Avenue S. E. Minneapolis Minnesota ForwardingAgent: Mrs. Dale Holm, 17864 EastCypress,Covina, California January I960  Evangelism seems to be getting harderandharderinJapan. These are the words in letters from2 missionaries in Japan. BrotherTakafuji says the 5 class groupsandchurch services continue in the Sendai area. Thegroups got together for some fine fellowship at New Yearstime. We onlywish this fellowshipcouldreachout to others who know nothingof the rich blessings that areoursin Christ. We covetyourcontinuedprayers on behalfof thefolk out th r in Sendai At the National MissionaryConvention last September we learned of the need forgiving gifts to missions in a way that will meettherequirementsof income tax regulations. For example, towritea check to Paul Nielsen, even though you designatethe gift  formission work down in the cornerof the check is no longer legal if you wish exemption in your income tax. The checkmustbe made to an incorporated mission name or to the name of a church.In most cases the convenient way is to give your gift through the local church whereyou worship asking the church to sendyour gift to your designatedmissionaryormission field. If sending your gift to us through thelocal church is notadvieeable we suggest that you make yourcheckpayeable to NORTH TOWNE AVENUE CHURCH OF CHRIST, Do not put our name on the checkanywhere.Inyouraccompanying letter statethat the giftis for PaulNielsen or TOHOKU RURAL EVANGELISM. The canceled check will be your receipt acceptable for income tax purposes. V e are thankful to the folk in North Towne Avenue Church in Pomona California for accepting gifts for us in this way.SinceMrs. Holm, ourforwarding agent is amember of this church it is convenient for her toreceive these designated gifts for depositto ourCovina California banking account.
