GOOD NEWS FLASHES!--No.3/GN8       15/9/82       DFO1275

       1. EASTERN FAMILY RECEIVES 1ST GN WITHIN 1 WEEK IN GOOD CONDITION! PTL! HALLELUJAH! TYJ! AMEN! Other areas please get your "Mail Condition Report" Slips in immediately so we can know how you're coming & how they're treating your mail, what condition it was in when you received it & how fast it got to you. PTL! From now on you'll get not only a TRF Form & a Lost Mail Report Form in your centre-fold about every other time, but also a Mail Condition Report Form on the back of your TRF. Please fill it in so we will know how your mail is coming to you & if any changes need to be made or what we should do about it. Thanks!

       2. GNs 2 & 3 WERE MAILED OUT TOGETHER IN A LARGE ENVELOPE TO YOU ON THE 3RD OF SEPTEMBER so you should have gotten them by the time you get this for sure, including another GN mailing of GNs 4 & 5, each 36-pagers being mailed out not much after the 15th of September, D.V. So please get those Mail Condition Report Slips in on the back of your next TRF mailed on the 1st of October without fail! Thank you! GBY! We want to give you as good & fast service as possible on these Special Rush Mailings of your new "Good News" Mag in the best possible condition & the shortest possible time while it's still red-hot news! Amen?

       3. SO PLEASE FILL OUT THAT MAILING CONDITION FORM ON THE BACK OF YOUR TRF AS SOON AS YOU GET YOUR GNs, even if it's not yet time to mail your TRF, so you won't forget it! Thanks! This is important, urgent & required! So do not fail to fill out that Mail Condition Report Form on the back of your TRF that we're now sending with the GNs.

       4. THE FIRST 5 ISSUES OF THE GNs WERE COMPLETED WITHIN FIVE WEEKS, so we can produce at least a 36-page GN each week & mail them to you in double mailings at least twice a month, D.V. The next GNs may be mailed to you from elsewhere, D.V., ASAP, with perhaps a little delay to get set up there & to find the right combinations of printing & mailing at 1/2 the cost of what the first five have cost us so far!--And with perhaps even more efficient & faster service! So PTL, we're still revoluting & improving with every single mailing.

       5. AND THESE NEW ONES, D.V., FROM NOW ON WILL BE 48 PAGES EACH! That's 96 pages in each two-copy mailing, or 192 pages per month, D.V.! And we have calculated that our GN pages are giving you 35% more material than our old Mag & Book-page sizes!--Therefore 192 pages a month is the equivalent of approximately a 260-page old Magazine per month! So you're really getting your money's worth in these new red-hot real-fast weekly GNs! Praise God! Was it worth it? Hallelujah! It pays to revolute! And we've really been working on it, GBY!

       6. WE WENT FROM A TABLOID-STYLE NEWSPAPER FOR THE FIRST TWO ISSUES TO TWO-COLUMN SMALLER MAG-PAGE SIZES in these past issues & will continue to do so, D.V., unless we get a better idea. How do you like them? Aren't they beautiful?--And nice & handy! Just give it a fold or two & you can stick it in your pocket & carry it around with you wherever you go! They're also coming to you now in nice Letter-sized Airmail envelopes striped red, white & blue so the Postman can't miss'm, that they're to be rushed Airmail! to you from wherever our PDQ may be, your nearest Publication Distribution Quarter, or PDQ also stands for Pretty Darn Quick! Hallelujah! The actual cost is about $5 a copy, including creations, production, printing, packaging & mailing, but actually priceless! So hang on to them, they're valuable! Don't lose'm! If you do loan them to somebody, a good friend or outside Family member, be sure you get'm back!

       7. REMEMBER, THESE ARE STRICTLY DFO, just for our own folks & very close favourable friends only, disciples & friends only, DFO! No other outsiders are to read these please, because they contain very highly-classified controversial material. GBY! Please help us keep our security. Nevertheless on the overall looks of our new little GN Magazine we are trying to make them look as normal as possible with as little controversial matter visible as possible, including in the illustrations. You receive a little more liberal material in your BOTMs which we still hope to be able to send to you once a month with all the Family News & other articles.

       8. SO HANG ON TO THEM ALL! GBY! AND HANG ON TO YOUR HATS, HERE WE GO! HALLELUJAH! TYJ! We are really rollin' now! You're getting your latest red-hot Letters, news, stats & Want Ads within only one or two weeks now instead of one or two months as before! GBY! TYJ! Amen! Isn't that wonderful & worth it all? GBY & thank you for your continued support to make all of this possible. Please don't let us down, keep on keepin' on so we can keep'm rollin' to you! Amen? GBAKYACTMYAB wherever you are & to get you new GN Magazines promptly & safely, in Jesus' name, amen!

       9. NOTICE ALSO HOW YOUR NEW FAST AIRMAIL GN ENVELOPES COME IN THE PRETTY STRIPED AIRMAIL COLOURS TO MAKE SURE THE POSTMEN KNOW THEY ARE AIRMAIL envelopes & pick them off the sorting table first & throw them in the Airmail Rush Box to the Airport before any other mail is sorted! This I know because I used to work in the Post Office & that's how they do it. The Airmail striped envelopes are sorted & sacked & sent first! So be sure you use striped Airmail envelopes for quick service!


       9. PACIFIC HOMES: Several have asked how to write to us: Please send any letters you have for us to the same address that you mail your reports to each month. GBY! WLYSM! If you have any extra mailings for some reason, always please let us know ASAP & we can tell you who in your area needs them! TYSM! VISA TRIPS: If you're only going for a short trip--please be sure your base home keeps you on their roll for mailings--rather than making two quick address changes which may delay your mailings. It would be better to have your former base home continue to receive & forward to you your mailings until you are certain of your new permanent address. GBAKY! WPFY! Love, Your PARO Family! XOX!
