I love the way our Indian team tells the story of this recording trip:
Going out for recordings can be hazardous! Chris Mason writes:
I wondered if this way of storytelling would be a helpful tool in the hands of our new recordist trainees.
WOW! The best misso's letter I have ever got arrived today. The writer is a senior missionary in Milne Bay Province Papua New Guinea.
My reaction was :
Such detail and very illuminating, very irritating, very frustrating and very funny.
One can do a whole TV show based on your letter.
Today I picked up the buzzing handset, said “Global Recordings”, identified myself and heard a woman's voice, not known to me, but it had a familiar accent. It reminded me of the voice of a dear friend of mine who lives in Edinburgh. Understandable and very lilting, my caller identified herself as being from that part of Scotland.
Then she asked me for a bible-based recording of a language for outer MONGOLIA.
“Wow! Would you wait while I look up my list of Asian recordings?”.
I loved reading this report:

“ I personally have been greatly encouraged and blessed to be able to participate in the formation of our 'Every Nation' team here in Siberia. In contrast to the icy grip of white winter, our hearts are pulsing with love, passion and vision. God's heart itself is what we are reflecting and following for He has bled and indeed bleeds with hot love in His pursuit of the Small Peoples of the North, the fallen and down-trodden strangers in their own land here.
Dalene Joubert writes from South Africa:
At a big seminar with local pastors, we had on display many Christian materials.We asked the pastor for their opinion on what would be most helpful to their churches and their evangelism efforts. We really hoped they would spend some time studying the materials and make a considered group decision.
Instead they looked at the books without even touching them, and then went straight to the big colorful GNM illustration books with tapes and texts. In two minutes they had all decided this was what they needed.
How about trying to do Global Recordings Network distribution in the ports? Well, here is a story from Ian Dennis of European Christian Mission.
On the phone he mentioned that he was short of CDs of Good News messages for sailors from Papua New Guinea. He particularly mentioned a ship's engineer from East New Britain. So GRN staff did their homework and came up with a Good News CD and booklet in the SULKA language and sent it off to him.
