Subscriber Review

Yesterday the current issue of MFH arrived and it made my day!  The articles and photos were excellent. Masthof has been an invaluable ministry in keeping our heritage alive.  It is hard to believe you are still planning and conducting the tours. I can't fathom the significance of the hundreds, if not more, whose lives have been changed by participating in these tours.  -Duane Kauffman, Pa.
