We appreciate the opportunity of sharing the ministry of ETD with you today. Gospel literature continues to have a huge impact in drawing men and women, boys and girls to faith in Jesus Christ. Evangelical Tract Distributors has been supplying gospel tracts free of charge to people around the world since 1935. However, due to the heavy expenses involved in getting the tracts to their destination, we are asking that you help us by paying for the shipping and handling costs incurred when placing your order. Your assistance in this way will be much appreciated.
The insert for the month of July will be Won't You Love My Jesus? If you would like to order this tract please contact us by phone or e-mail.
Storing Up Treasures In Heaven
We are reminded several times by our Lord of the importance of being good stewards of the material things we acquire during our lifetime. Many Christians respond to this admonition by giving generously and even sacrificially to the Lord's work.
The work of ETD is a faith ministry that is dependent on those loyal supporters who are called of God to regularly support this ministry. An important, sometimes forgotten aspect of this support can be a provision in your will for Evangelical Tract Distributors. Bequests received by ETD are greatly appreciated and are used directly in the ongoing work of ETD.
Recent changes in Canadian tax laws introduced substantial tax incentives to encourage Canadians to make gifts by will for charitable purposes. Because capital gains in Canada are subjected to tax in the year of death, these new changes can reduce capital gains significantly. Changes to the tax laws also encourage gifts of publicly listed securities.
We understand that U.S. tax laws contain provisions, which, although different, also foster charitable giving by will. Supporters are encouraged to seek advice from a lawyer or attorney in preparing their wills. It is important that ETD be identified by its proper name and address, i.e.:
Evangelical Tract Distributors
P.O. Box 146, Edmonton,
Alberta, Canada, 5J 2G9.
ETD has prepared a brief guide for your use in organizing information to assist a lawyer or attorney in the preparation of your will. This guide is available without charge, upon request.
