The following e-mail was distributed May 27, 2008:
Greetings State/Regional Overseer,
Today the General Overseer’s Office was informed by the Secretary of the Finance and Stewardship Committee that the Committee “is withdrawing the Mission Fund section of their Report to the upcoming 95th International Assembly.”
To avoid confusion, we wish to inform you that this change will not be reflected in either the online version of the Report or the printed version already in the process of being mailed to the pastors and proxy representatives. A notice of this change will be posted to the website and included as part of the mailing materials.
Thank you for your attention to this message and for forwarding it to the ministry in your area.
Blessings, Shaun McKinley Administrative Liaison to the General Overseer
