Leaflet about South-Indiana United Methodists and Others In Support of South Africans (SUMOSSA). The leaflet notes that the presence of two persons in the past five years from Southern Africa in the Third World Mission Program of the South Indiana Conference, together with the independence of Zimbabwe in 1980 and news of increased repression in South Africa and Namibia, have brought the reality of South Africa's apartheid system close to persons in South Indiana. The leaflet says in 1981 SUMOSSA was initiated as a task force out of a conviction that the apartheid system is contrary to the gospel of Jesus Christ, and that Christians around the world must demonstrate the unity of the church in their rejection of apartheid; these persons in SUMOSSA are therefore committed to supporting South Africans and Namibians in their struggle to eliminate this unjust and evil system. The leaflet says please send this form and your contribution to Dr. Robert Fribley, Secretary SUMOSSA. [Note: This leaflet may have been two sided by the copy digitized had only one.]
