Great Placement! UCG-UK Newspaper Ad

March 30, 2011

Click to see detail of The Daily Telegraph front page showing the UCG-UK advertisement.

On Monday, March 21, the United Church of God in the United Kingdom ran a newspaper advertisement in The Daily Telegraph. Of particular interest is that the theme of our ad, “Why Is the Middle East Such a Perpetual Hot Spot?”, coincided perfectly with the newspaper’s lead story for the day about military action against Libya.

The UCG-UK ad is seen in the red box in the lower right-hand side of the front page.

Bricket Wood, England, pastor Gerhard Marx forwarded a copy of the ad to the UCG home office in Cincinnati. You can see it attached to this blog post. God indeed blessed this advertising effort in both the timing and front-page placement in The Daily Telegraph at a very reasonable cost.

Please pray for a very good response to our UK office’s advertising effort in this regard. They  are offering a free subscription to the Good News magazine, and copies of two of our booklets, “The Middle East in Bible Prophecy” and “Are We Living in the Time of the End?

  4. So since when is Libya part of the Middle East? The last time I looked it was part of North Africa and due south of Italy.

    • According to this, it is in the Middle East.

    • Tim,

      With that reasoning, Egypt should not be considered part of the Middle East either since it is in North Africa and due south of Greece.

    • Dan 11:40-43 … the King of the South (middle east)…. and the Libyans shall be at his steps. A reference from a much Higher authority – direct answer to the question: since Daniel’s time.

  7. It is a great encouragement to see this in the Telegraph – and on the front page no less. The Telegraph is one of my home pages, because I find it provides balanced, in-depth coverage of many important issues which the US press overlooks.

  8. great news and nice ad. Just one thing, it should be UCG-BI, The Isle of Man is NOT part of the UK. That is why the name was changed to UCG-British Isles in 98.

    stay strong

  12. I am very impressed. The Telegraph is my favorite source of news for many topics the U.S. papers seem to ignore. Praying for much success with this ad.
