          We all know the power of TV - why not harness this power for the Gospel?   We have many testimonies of people walking into our churches asking to be baptised, after watching Hope Channel!

          These excellent leaflets invite DSTV viewers to tune into Hope Channel and give instructions on how to do it on the back.   The leaflets are pocket-sized and very easy to hand out  - see example below (unfolded).   Members give them to friends and colleagues at the office.  Hand them out or leave them anywhere where people spend time - doctors' waiting rooms,  store checkouts, bus stops and numerous other places.
