    :confused:

    Isn't that why they issued a press release, so people would know about it?

    Unlike some schemes discussed elsewhere on the BB, this effort is not covert, and that is to commended.

    The West Michigan thing seemed strange to me as well...then I saw the link to the Amway financiers; th ehusband is from Grand Rapids which, of course, is in West Michigan. Perhaps, helping to fund plant churches in his Childhood home area was a conditon on the money.

    Thank you for your lucid post.

    It is strange, as western Michigan is already a Reformed enclave.

    See this map.

    A pleasant surprise to me. I was always under the impression that AMWAY was a Mormon thing.

    A pleasant surprise - a person puts his money where his mouth is.
