FREE EBOOKS NOW AVAILABLE: Friend Ships has made available four E-books for free download at Smashwords. "Why Give" is a review of the many scriptures in the Bible that tell us how God wants us to respond to the needs of the poor, what He Himself does for them and what rewards there are for this service. "How to Provide Food for People in Need" gives guidance on starting and operating a food distribution program, detailing what we have learned in our thirty years of collecting food and distributing it here in the U.S. "From Jesus With Love" is a basic introduction to relief missions for youth and "Ready Response" outlines possibilities and what to consider when taking a team to help in the aftermath of a disaster. We hope these books will be a blessing and encouragement to people who would like to work in relief missions. By Don & Sondra Tipton
