       1. Because the Tithe from your October TRF Report, sent November 1st, did not meet the $30 minimum as stated in "Tit For Tat", THE FOLLOWING HOMES ARE NOT ELIGIBLE TO RECEIVE THE SPECIAL NOVEMBER/DECEMBER MAILINGS! If your Home Number appears on this list below, you will not be sent: The 1983-84 Diary (which is being mailed one per disciple); the 1983 Colour Calendar; "Heavenly Helpers"--The Supporters & Ministries Reference Book; & ML Volume 9&10!
       2. AS A SPECIAL DISPENSATION OF GRACE, IF YOU IMMEDIATELY SEND THE DIFFERENCE IN YOUR OCTOBER TITHE TO MEET THE $30 MINIMUM YOU CAN STILL RECEIVE COPIES, D.V. Send the difference, along with a note of explanation to your RO, who will in turn pass your Mailing Clearance to the Sprint Center. If your November Tithe (mailed December 1st) was below $30, follow the same procedure if you don't want to miss the upcoming valuable publications.
       3. HOWEVER STARTING WITH THE JANUARY 1ST TRFs, IT WILL NO LONGER BE POSSIBLE FOR LOW TITHERS OF UNDER $30 TO ORDER MISSED BOOKS! So be sure to give, & you'll get "Tit For Tat"! GBY! WLY! Work harder, tithe well & don't miss any from now on!
       4. YOU FAITHFUL GIVERS OF A FULL CREDIBLE TITHE WILL RECEIVE EVERYTHING AS USUAL. GBY for your diligence, sacrifice, unselfishness & faithful support for His Work! Where God guides He provides & blesses!--Amen?
       5. REMEMBER, SALVATION IS FREE TO ALL, LIKE THE GOSPEL!--But it costs something to pipe it to ya! Salvation is a gift, but healing, finances & other extra blessings are special rewards which must be earned by diligent obedience, faith & service--hard works!
       6. OUR BASIC MESSAGE IS FREE!--You can even receive it on the Streets for nothing!--But the extra blessings of all these other Pubs must be deserved, merited & supported by faithful good works & Tithing!
       7. --WE'VE GIVEN YOU SALVATION!--NOW YOU GOTTA EARN THE BOOKS, MAGS, TAPES & OUR MYRIAD OTHER PUBS prepared for you with much hard work by many helpers & at great expense! They cost something! They cost us a lot! They cost our Pubbers & producers & printers a lot!
       8. --AND SOMEBODY'S GOTTA PAY FOR'M!--YOU!--OR SOMEBODY FOR YOU!--With Tithes & extra offerings!--About 1/2 our Family gives more than enough so the other 1/2 who can't give enough can share these blessings!--Which are you? But we can't share all these blessings unless you give at least what you can.--But if you can't, we can't! Sorry! We'll just have to give you what we can.
       9. "UNTO EACH ACCORDING TO HIS WORKS." (Rev.20:12)--Your Tithe in this case! "For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, & he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath." (Mat.13:12; Lu.8:18) Sorry, but that's God's eternal principle of rewarding good works. Thank God, salvation is free or we never could have made it!--Amen?
       10. YOU WHO GIVE LESS THAN $30 a month will only get FNs, KIDZ & LINs! Less than $20: KIDZ & LINs only! Less than $5: LINs only! You know, you don't have to make $300 a month to give $30--you only have to make $30! (Job 23:12; 1Kg.17:8-16) Think that over! Since when must you only Tithe a mere 10%? What happened to those who used to forsake all?--Huh? Don't be a mere 10%er!--C'mon! Give it all!--And God'll give you everything! So make sure you work hard!
       11. REMEMBER, THESE SUMS DO NOT REPRESENT EVEN AS MUCH AS THE ACTUAL COSTS OF THESE PUBS! They're merely the approximate minimum you low-Tithers must give to show you appreciate & deserve them, so we'll feel you're worthy of them & the balance of their cost which is paid for by the rest of the Family as a subsidy to the poor.--OK? Thanks! GBY! Do your best for Jesus!--IJNA. WLY!--Are ya COMIN'?
