August 30th, 2009 will start a new chapter in the writing ministry of Money Help For Christians. On that day my family will be leaving the United States and traveling back to Alotau, Papua New Guinea. We will spend a week along the way in Sydney, Australia. We are scheduled to arrive back in our home town of Alotau, Papua New Guinea on September 8th, 2009. Since I started blogging our family has been in various parts of Canada and the United States.
How all that impacts you:
I will be returning to a home without internet. There is a possibility that when we return I will be able to get internet at my own home (would be the first time in three years). Regardless, I will be writing all my material offline and submitting it to post on a scheduled basis, so don’t worry – I plan to submit regular articles that relate to your faith and your finances.

I really want to encourage comments, and I also want to have some control over the type of comments I allow on my site (I currently manually approve every comment). However, effective immediately, I am going to allow comments to be automatically approved, if you have previously commented. If it is your first time to comment on my site, it might be a day or two before I have the ability to get to the internet. Please, I encourage you to comment. Just understand there might be a delay before it is posted. Also, please let me know if there are any inappropriate comments posted.
Weekly Round Up:
Due to my limited internet access it will be difficult for me to continue doing a weekly roundup on a regular basis. I will occasionally try and pass along some of my favorite reads, but no guarantees.
Delayed Email Response:
If you send me an email, please understand that it might be 1 – 3 days before I have the opportunity to access my emails. I enjoy getting feedback from readers, so I encourage you to email. Please be patient as it might take me several days to respond.

NEW FEATURE: Friends of MH4C
MH4C stands for Money Help For Christians.
I have added a new page called “Friends of MH4C”.
What is Friends of MH4C?
Friends of MH4C is a community of readers who are blessed by the writings published on this website. They are individuals who share a common desire to encourage people to manage their finances in a way that honors God. Finally, Friends of MH4C are people who are willing to devote a few moments each week to help improve this website.
What do Friends of MH4C do?
Friends of MH4C help to bridge the gap created by my inability to frequently access the internet in Papua New Guinea. Because of my limited internet access there are many networking tasks that will be difficult for me to perform. As a result, it will be difficult for me to fully network my blog as I should. Friends of MH4C fill that role by promoting the material on the blog on social networking sites. Furthermore, Friends of MH4C will provide valuable feedback with their own perceptions and suggestions for this blog.
Up to once a week I will send you an email asking you to do a simple task – that task might be to bookmark a certain post on a site. That task might be to give me some feedback about how you discovered this site. This task might be feedback about your favorite blog post. I may ask for topics you would be interested in reading.
The time commitment involved would likely be between 5 –10 minutes per week.
What do you get for being a Friend of MH4C?
Of course, you will have my gratitude and appreciation. The first 50 friends of MH4C will get access to all current and future eBooks I publish at no charge. If I start charging for eBooks in the future (I hope to write 1-2 per year) you will always have access to those eBooks without a cost. I will post a message on the “Friends of MH4C” page when I have had 50 people join.
So what do you need to do to join?
- Send an email to mhforc [at] gmail [dot] com. Include your first and last name (or last initial, if you prefer). In the subject line, include something about ‘friend of MH4C’.
- You will then automatically be added to the email list. Once a week I will ask you a couple of questions or ask you to help with some feature of blog networking.
- At any point you can opt out of the Friends of MH4C program by unsubscribing.
If you have any questions, please let me know.
