The 48-sheet Billboard design we used in last year's campaign in Northern Ireland are again being pressed into service as part of our outreach into the Five Border Counties.
During advertising cycles 23, 24 & 25, 20 Billboards will be on display.
We have managed to negotiate a much reduced fee for the billboards - and then obtained further value by doubling the time over which they will appear for a little extra cost. It's not quite a 2-for-the-price-of-1 deal, ... but it's close!
The total cost for the boards is £9,517.00.
Please pray that each will be an effective wayside messenger, pointing souls to the only Saviour, our Lord Jesus Christ.

There are multitudes of baptized men and women who profess to honour Christ, but in reality do Him great dishonour.
They give Christ a certain place in their system of religion, but not the place which God intended Him to fill.
Christ alone is not “all in all” to their souls.
It is either Christ and the Church, or Christ and the sacraments, or Christ and His ordained ministers, or Christ and their own repentance, or Christ and their own goodness, or Christ and their own prayers, or Christ and their own sincerity and charity, on which they practically rest their souls.
If any reader of this paper is a Christian of this kind, I warn him also plainly, that his religion is an offence to God. You are changing God’s plan of salvation into a plan of your own devising. You are in effect deposing Christ from His throne, by giving the glory due to Him to another.
