“I was speechless when I saw the cover of “Making Christ Known 2002.” It is truly a powerful photo and a beautiful [article.] What an excellent job of communicating through words and pictures throughout the entire publication. The church is blessed to have your gifts to tell their story.”

Pat Dever, church building consultant for the ELCA, regarding article for
“MIF In Action” newsletter

“Kudos for your article on King of Kings Lutheran Church, Lake Orion, Mich. You really captured the situation and the “deep background” and it really paints a picture for the reader. Also, through the words of the president and the interim pastor, some profound principles are conveyed. … In short, the article made me feel warm and fuzzy all over. Thanks for your work!”

Fred Opalinski, pastor, Trinity Lutheran Church, Latrobe, Pa.

“This is a long overdue “thank you” for the splendid job in producing Making Christ Known. It is one of the best things to come out of Chicago. We use it with new members, church council and catechism classes. It is packed with information and insight in a very inviting format.”

Marlys Waldo, Director, ELCA Division for Outreach and Editor,
“Mission Partners” newsletter

“Just a quick note to say how great both the ‘Response Catalog’ and ‘Making Christ Known’ newspaper look. I know you have to “drag” information out of us, but you certainly come up with a good product!”
