I've seen a few installments of the Marc Van der Woude's new email periodical entitled _Joel News_. It is a free, twice-a-week digest compiled by a Dutchman, containing a few pages of some of the most exciting revival-type news items from around the world. As far as I can tell, most of its mission news is drawn from sources Brigada readers will already be familiar with (Friday Fax, Global Glimpse, Advance, etc.), but about half the content is from revival and spiritual awakening-type lists. Articles are well-chosen and organized. Also available in Dutch. You can subscribe to JOEL-NEWS-INTERNATIONAL by sending an e-mail to: <firstname.lastname@example.org> with the following command in the body of your message: subscribe joel-news-international More information on prayer and revival is available on the Joel News pages: www.xs4all.nl/~mvdwoude
From: Justin Long <DavidLong@aol.com> The MissionWatch is a bi-weekly 4-page analysis letter whose purpose is to "cross-pollinate" ideas (ranging from fundraising to missions mobilization), between various ministries. Information is global in scope and up-to-date, culled from a variety of sources. An annual subscription is $25. However, we believe in the shareware principle: "Try before you buy, but if you use it, be honest and pay for it." If you send us your address, we'll be happy to send you two free copies. For more details, email to [JDavidLong@AOL.COM]. We scan all those news sources which you're maxed out, pick out the real gems - the ideas, the innovations, the news that really matters - and deliver it to your door in a bi-weekly newsletter that's easy to read. We write it in letter form, not as a newsletter. We write it to YOU. We bring you the things that you can use right now to make your ministry more successful in completing its mission. Moreover, we take ideas from everybody, big or small, without exception, and promote it across the board as widely as possible so that the whole body can work together. We believe in a simple motto: "One King, One Kingdom."As to preventing duplication, we have a simple solution: we are looking for ideas, innovations, models, case studies and examples. We are NOT a news source, although we do carry some news items. Rather, we analyze daily events and tell you how we--and those we talk with--think they can best be used. Due to recent price reductions in Internet services, and at the urging of our network of missionaries, The MissionWatch Report is now available via e-mail for free. Postal delivery is still $25/US, $50/International. To see a sample of the MissionWatch, or to view past archives, visit our web site at http://www.goshen.net/gem/ justin/justin.htm. If you'd like to subscribe, simply send a message to email@example.com with the single line "subscribe missionwatch" in the body of the message.--From: GEM@xc.org (Justin Long)

[I just checked it out, and it's really sharp!~N.W.] On the Internet since last August, 1996, we have recently started a new feature area called BLOOD IN THE FIELDS.
