DT Editor's Note: Tom and Sheila Jones are tireless servants of God and his family. God has certainly used them in ways they will only know when all the people they have touched have eternity to share with them in heaven! Tom valiantly battled MS the last three decades while continuing to write, counsel and teach. Sheila almost single-handedly kept DPI alive to feed, enrich and inspire through the excellent products of DPI. We love and admire them dearly because they so profoundly love Jesus.
The DPI board and I have some news that we want to share with you. In the spring of 2014 I will be retiring from my position as executive director/managing editor of DPI.
After considering several alternatives as to what DPI should do upon my retirement, our board of directors and I have come to the decision that this is the appropriate time for DPI to retire also. So after 21 years of producing quality resources to encourage the growth of disciples around the world, we will be closing our doors in April 2014.
God raised up this ministry, and it has now run the course that was "marked out" for it. Tom and I certainly feel some sadness, but more than anything we feel gratitude to have been part of such an amazing ministry that has put us in touch with people all over the world.
We so appreciate your support and encouragement throughout the years. We want to assure you that many of the DPI books will continue to be in print going forward. Tom and I (and other authors) will have new websites where you can buy our books. And we plan to write new ones!
Beginning April 1, 2014, we will have a page that will let you know where you can buy different authors' books. The current DPI website will be operative through March 31, 2014. Watch for an announcement that we will make as soon as the website is prepared for a major liquidation sale.
We are grateful that Illumination Publications (IP) in Houston will continue to publish and distribute materials from those in our fellowship. And IP will continue to sell many of the DPI books.
With love and gratitude,
