War-devastated Afghanistan is one of the poorest countries in the world but 
they also have the greatest potential for success.

Now that they have been freed from Taliban domination and are no longer 
harboring terrorists, there are no limits to achieving a free and 
prosperous future.

There is a California missionary group who is helping restore Afghanistan 
by providing free fruit trees to those who agree to plant and nurture them. 
It would be a giant step forward if they could replace their opium poppies 
with fruitful trees. This group can place a young fruit tree in the hands 
of a willing Afghan for $2.

Readers, please join this missionary group with your prayers and donations 
to: Bare Roots Fruit Tree Project, 72 Kensington Road, San Anselmo, Calif. 
94960. Also, please request that your newspaper provide us with periodic 
progress reports.
