Complementing the television spots airing on CNN Headline News, the resources include downloadable versions of two different bulletin inserts, a bulletin cover, a PowerPoint presentation of worship slides and a worship version of the :15 television spot. In addition, customizable newspaper print ads are available for downloading, along with all the other resources here (http://bit.ly/6d35Dh), or under the "Additional Resources" section at http://www.umc.org/haiti.
