    Each year New Trbes Mission hosts their an annual NTM Headquarters staff appreciation dinner. They serve a delicious BBQ dinner and recognize missionaries who have served at NTM U.S. Headquarters for 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, or even 35 years. Afterwards, our fellow missionaries usually have an opportunity to share skits, comedy, or music.

    As missionaries, we are communicators, communicating the Gospel of Christ with the unreached, communicating with our fellow missionaries, and communicating with our prayer and financial partners. I have at times seen missionary newsletters with some pretty significant spelling or grammar mistakes. So this prompted me to create and share a tongue-in-cheek presentation on The Importanse of Spelling at our 2007 NTM Headquarters staff appreciation dinner.

    If you have Microsoft PowerPoint or their free PowerPoint viewer, you can view my presentation, The Importanse of Spelling.

    Or you can just scroll down and read the text of the presentation below, but it's more fun to watch the PowerPoint presentation.

    Spelling is Important

    Spelling has an affect on folks

    It will effect what people think of you. This is true for your miner children two.  So bee a grate egg sample to them! Take time to check you’re spelling.

    Some times you try and read a letter And ewe can hardly make cents of there sentences.  Their spelling is weigh off And there hole email or not is fool of miss takes.

    With computers and technology, though, you don't have to be reel smart to spell properly, accept when your handwriting a note.   Bee a good speller.  Use the technology; you wont brake it.
