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