It is provided for the record, for educational and research purposes, with the principal aim of promoting accountability by the TFI for its teachings and statements, which have proven detrimental to the lives of many.

Don't forget, put your return address on back of envelope.

       PLEASE USE BANK MONEY ORDER or International Postal Money Order. Try to avoid sending personal cheques or cash--never coins! Wrap the money in this TRF, & another sheet of plain paper around the TRF, & fold a piece of carbon paper around all this to avoid X-ray, & staple or pin it all together so it can't be easily removed! Be sure to fold paper so it completely fills envelope from top to bottom & end to end & place in two envelopes, one inside the other for security! If you wish the contents sent to someone else, put their name & address only on inner envelope. Check & double check the envelope, address, postage & general appearance for security & pray desperately for it before mailing! It's our Life Line! Mail prayerfully on the 1st of the Month!--No later! Mailings missed because of late Reports cannot be replaced! Mailings missed because of truly lost mail through no fault of yours will be replaced free on receipt of a Lost Mail Report Form 896 published in each Mag, if the information meets our requirements.
