The Good News
I want to thank you for faithfully sending The Good News for years now. A dear friend got me going a long time ago. I read the "Letters From Our Readers," and I have been wanting to thank you for such a long time. My magazine gets passed around to several people who appreciate it as much as I do.
Thank you so much for your outstanding work, for your ability and knowledge in making the Word more understandable—and also for explaining world situations. My friend had told me that it's not just a "religious" magazine, and that's why she liked it. And that's why I like it. I am constantly learning and applying, and thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Please keep up the great work that you are doing for Jesus and all the people that read all these booklets. I know the end time is very near. I know that The Good News is staying on top of all that is happening. I am so grateful for the people who write these magazine articles. My heart goes out to each and every one of you.

What truly superb writers and researchers The Good News has in abundance. It gives an invaluable overview of world events that clearly beats any other publication. I save all of your publications to reread frequently. Thank you for bringing so much enlightenment to us all. It is simply priceless in today's world of despair.

I am a 49-year-old man. I love watching your Beyond Today show, the only TV ministry that doesn't ask for money. I also love the way you take the Good Book and explain it so that even someone like me can understand it. Thank you for being my church.

America and Israel
You quote that America's support for Israel may be less durable than it was. This is supported by a former American general who reputedly said earlier this year that Israel was perhaps becoming a strategic burden rather than an asset to the U.S.A., costing American lives and giving rise to anti-American extremism around the world.
J. H. G., Isle of Man
To understand better why America has generally supported Israel since its inception as a new nation in 1948, please see in this issue the article "Israel: Growing Danger on Every Side" and the "World News and Trends" items.
Thankful for booklets
I want to thank you for the booklets I have received. They are really helpful, and I learned a lot from them. I am new in the faith and would like to know more about God and how I can transform my life. I know that just reading the Bible would give and show me a lot about God and Jesus Christ, but I also like to read your booklets. I am 16 years old and from Jordan, a small country.
Please forgive me for not writing sooner to thank you for all your booklets. I really do thank the United Church of God for making these possible. My wife is crippled and we live on a fixed income. Your booklets have really helped.
Is God a Trinity?
I received the booklet Is God a Trinity? in the mail today and I just wanted to thank you for taking the time to send me this booklet. I absolutely love the new format and layout, the glossy feel of the pages and the addition of photos. I can't wait to start reading. Thank you so much, and may God continue to bless the work of the United Church of God.
Congratulations to the authors of the Trinity booklet for an exceptionally outstanding job! It was thorough, well-organized, and well-presented. It is the best work on the subject I have ever read. From my perspective, it is the best booklet ever produced by the Church.

Bible Study Course
I love your Bible Study Course more than I can say with mere words. Thank you so very much for sharing The Good News magazine, and may God bless and reward you all abundantly.

Thank you so much that I recently found your magazine through the clinic that I go to. My daughter-in-law and my grandson both passed away while she was giving birth. That was six months ago. I do read my Bible. So far I have received from you What Happens After Death? and the July-August and September-October Good News. I live in Melbourne, Victoria, and was wondering which congregation would be closest to me. Again, thank you so much. You are changing my life. I have given your Good News to a couple of friends of mine.
Reader from Melbourne, Victoria
Our office in Brisbane has already contacted you with the required information. Your attitude in adversity has inspired and encouraged us all!
I am going to take this opportunity to thank the United Church of God for the free magazines that were sent to me. These magazines are really transforming my way of life. A young person like me is constantly faced with challenges, and your literature gives wonderful guidance.
Reader from Papua New Guinea
Thank you for The Good News. Please send me a copy of your booklet Sunset to Sunset: God's Sabbath Rest. I am a believer in the Saturday Sabbath and keep that day as the Fourth Commandment states. The Sabbath was made for man and not only for the Jews.

Readers from Canada
Thank God for the events that put The Good News in my possession. I learned where I could worship on the Sabbath and, the second I walked in, I was home. In this regard, I see God as the source of all benefits and blessings. Therefore, I will continue to give 10 percent of everything that comes my way.
Reader from British Columbia
Thank you so much for your quick response in sending me The Good News and the first lesson of the Bible Study Course. Please do continue to send them. I am sending a small donation.
Reader from Northern Ontario
I am writing this letter to thank you for your help. For many years I turned my back on God and didn't think I needed Him anymore. I wasn't until about five years ago that I was sitting in a hospital waiting room that I read one of your Good News magazines and my life from then on was changed. That magazine so moved me that I asked God to return to my life, and I also asked Him for forgiveness. I am still going through some difficult times, but now I know that God is with me again.
