This little gospel is just marvellous and such a great idea! We will be using it in our Remembrance service later this year.

by Mrs Pam Smith

The Gospels look great and we will use them for the Lord's work.

by Mr Gough

I'm Padre to 6th Battalion The Rifles, an Army Reserve unit in SW England. The past two weeks we've been on exercise in Cyprus and I led a field service for 120 soldiers & officers on Sunday (4th). I spoke about having hope in a hope-less world and was able to talk about your booklets and the hope they gave to WW1 soldiers. And because of your pay-it-forward system, I was able to offer every one of them a copy.So thank you for re-producing them. Current soldiers are still receiving them!

by Gary Birch

What an amazingly evocative gospel – very powerful. Thank you so much for producing this resource!

by Mrs Walker

The best resource I have had the pleasure of using!

by Mr Patterson

Thank you SGM for putting together this resource and making it available to churches like us. We have been really blessed by the generosity of the supporters which meant that we could receive and distribute these Gospels, we would really have struggled to fund this ourselves.

by Rev’d Andy Dodwell

I have got to say a BIG thank you. Everyone thought these little Gospels were wonderful - a real thought provoking, nostalgic but very helpful outreach.
