The Mission came into existence as a result of Mr. G. W. Elliott's desire to see gospel literature mailed directly into the homes of the unsaved. Besides ordering tracts for your own distribution plans, you may actively participate in our tract program to systematically mail tracts to homes across Canada by --
(Available only in Canada). the Tract Clubs we used to have are discontinued. Instead we do mass mailings of booklets with testimonies and the way of salvation clearly explained. Since 2007 we have been doing mailings to large postal code areas of Saskatchewan. Large printing and mailing numbers reduces the cost of bulk mailing through Canada Post, meaning that we can reach each home for about 25 cents, and each home has three people living there on average. This is a very economical and thorough way of spreading the gospel and you may have a part with a financial gift.
Please look under "Service Opportunities" for ways in which you could get involved in our Literature Programs. We look forward to hearing from you.
Staff and volunteers send out hundreds of Bible lessons to children and adults through our own Bible Correspondence School. As the students return their answer sheets, the teachers grad them and send them back with the next lessons. When a student completes a course, the teacher or corrector awards him or her a beautiful certificate.
Many unsaved students come to know Christ personally through the lessons. Our teachers answer many questions and help to resolve problems along the way. Our students come from across Canada and abroad. If you would like to enroll someone in our school, send us their complete name, mailing address, age, (if not an adult). We will send the corresponding lessons.
Various opportunities are available to those who are interested. For further information, please refer to our "Service Opportunities" page.
Through our Publications Catalogue, we make available on a donation basis, all our literature to individuals, churches, and Christian organizations. Christians use our tracts to hand out personally, for going door-to-door, for leaving with tips, as enclosures with church information and much more! Note: Literature that is not listed in the catalogue is not available from us. We update the catalogue whenever changes are necessary.
The Mission is involved in other ministries as staff members are available. Presently one couple is presenting the gospel to an ethnic group in Alberta.
We used to provide billboard road signs with a Bible verse when requested, but the Highway Dept. no longer allows this in Saskatchewan. We have turned to other methods, such as digital posters with Scripture verses, to be promoted along with our tracts and literature from the web site, cards and catalogues. Currently, we looking for new people to help with this thrust.
Our web presence gives us a new world-wide outreach! Our Web site allows us to provide information about the Mission, and our literature in a way that is accessible around the world. It is a constantly growing, evolving avenue of ministry that costs very little and has tremendous potential. We hear of people in other countries, using our tracts from this site, to translate and publish in their own countries! The Mailbox Lessons are now available as Online Courses too, saving your postage.
The task of communicating our work to God's people falls to our Executive Director who coordinates our Mission Representatives. He also looks for workers who believe God is calling them to Western tract Mission. As well, he assists in seeking financial support for the missionary staff and general fund.
Starting January 2005, our two missions are now in a partnership. SLM provides materials and leadership for our Mailbox Club, and Impact Canada Ministries provides office space. We work together as one mission, officially since April 13, 2007.
Mission Representatives are members of the Mission who have a genuine interest in the Mission's ministries. As Mission Representatives, they present the work in churches, attend Mission Conferences, encourage the establishment of tract Clubs and tract distribution. Through an application procedure, they have been accepted by the Mission to represent the work in different provinces and states.
