FMWM will no longer be able to accept postage stamps (used or new) for Project Missions. (Project Missions was started in the early 1960s as an avenue to help Free Methodist World Missions by receiving, processing and re-selling used postage stamps to support approved missions projects.)
The decision to discontinue the program was made for several reasons: stamp collecting values have gone down significantly in recent years, less stamps are available as email use has become more prevalent, and we currently do not have anyone to manage the stamps. The current inventory of stamps will be sold with proceeds going toward a missions project.
FMWM wants to thank Rev. Raymond Banks, who retired from managing Project Missions due to health reasons. Through the years Rev. Banks spent many hours sorting, processing and selling the stamps sent to him by individuals and churches throughout the U.S. He had the expertise, the patience and the passion to handle thousands of stamps to further the cause of missions.
Also, thank you to each of you who faithfully saved stamps and sent them to Rev. Banks or to Free Methodist World Missions. Since the program started tens of thousands of dollars from the sale of stamps have been sent to touch lives in the name of Jesus.
