Well, it's been a busy month since Word.Net acquired the HIS-Net Christian
Network.  We'd like to give you an update on a few enhancements we've
added, as well as a preview of some things to come.

1) Spread the Word! Recommend HIS-Net To a Friend!
In association with Recommend-It.com, you can now easily recommend HIS-Net
Christian Network to a friend online!  Just take a few seconds to fill out
the online form, at
<http://recommend-it.com/l.z.e?s=143490 >
and an email invitation will be sent on your behalf!

2) The HIS-Net Newsletter Archive: Year One is now available online at
<http://HIS-Net.Com/archive/index.html >
Stop by and see how we've progressed, especially if you're a new
subscriber!

3) Reopening of the Guestbook
The HIS-Net GuestBook is once again open for visitor's comments! Stop
by and enter your comments at
<http://HIS-Net.Com/guestbook.html >

4) Enhanced Power Search:
You can now get 30, 60, 90 or even 120 search results per page, thanks
to improvements in the HIS-Net search engine.  Try out the New, Improved
Power Search Page at
<http://HIS-Net.com/search.html >
Just remember that it will take longer to display a larger
number of results, due to the greater amount of text being displayed.

5) In the next few weeks we will be revamping the Major Search Database
part of our site, to specifically include sites that link back to HIS-Net.
This will allow visitors who search from our page to get MUCH cleaner
search
results, since only sites which link to us will be included in their
results.
So....
  there's never been a better time to add a HIS-Net link to your website!
All the information you need to do this is online at:
<http://www.his-net.com/linking.html >
We greatly appreciate the reciprocal link, and once you've added it you'll
be well-positioned to benefit from this enhancement.

Please come on by and see the changes we've made to the site, and
feel free to send us any feedback, positive or negative.

We'd also like to welcome two of our newest banner advertisers:
Sherman Media - <http://www.ShermanMedia.Com >
and
The Preacher's Corner - <http://preacherscorner.simplenet.com/ >
To find out more about the affordable advertising available on
HIS-Net, visit:

Have a great week, and until next time, may the Lord richly
bless you and your ministries.  Please feel free to pass this
newsletter on to a friend.

In Him,

NEW FEATURE!
The HIS-Net Mailbag - Here's some encouraging email we received this week:

"Congratulations on the job you have done on the "new improved" His Net.
The improvement is outstanding!  Thank you for putting our link on your
site and we will put a link on our site for His-Net too.

May God bless you and your team in your endeavours.

Each week, one ministry listed in the HIS-Net Christian
Resources Directory will be selected as our MINISTRY OF THE
WEEK. Please visit their web site and take a few seconds to
pray over this ministry. Ask the Lord to strengthen those
involved in His work and to protect them from the enemy.

This week's MINISTRY OF THE WEEK is:
------------------------------------
Drought & Prayer - 'til the Rains Come.
URL of Site: http://www.ozemail.com.au/~sjhop/prayer.htm

Each week, we will select our FEATURED WEB SITE OF THE WEEK.
Each web site is selected because of its unique and different
uses of web technology. It might have sound. It might have
neat graphics. It might have interesting interactive features.
It probably has an artistic flair to it. It has something that
we thought was above the average web site. And the best thing
is... it's a Christian web site !!

As long as you have a web site listed on HIS-Net, you qualify
each week. Don't have your site listed yet? Go right now to
http://HIS-Net.Com/submit.html

This week's FEATURED SITE OF THE WEEK is:
-----------------------------------------
A guide to Christian Webmaster Resources
URL of Site: http://www.brigada.org/today/articles/web-evangelism.html
Category:  http://HIS-Net.Com/html/internet.html - Internet
Description: Links to some of the best online resources, tools and
newsletters (many of them free) for webmasters, web authors, and site
promotion.

[Note: these listings above are chosen from some of the new
sites listed on HIS-Net Christian Network. We provide them
here as a resource to help our readers discover new Christian
web sites. While we will attempt to verify that each link points
to a web site that glorifies God, proclaims their faith in Jesus
Christ, and that no offensive or irresponsible material is
referenced, we cannot guarantee this will always be the case
for every pointer. Do not believe everything you read. Test
the claims against the written Word of God, the Bible. May the
Lord Jesus guide you as you enjoy HIS 'net.]

How do you get your web site *on* this list? We go through and verify
each web site submitted to HIS-Net Christian Network. If we find one
that looks like it would be of interest to others on our mailing list,
we add it to the New Sites On HIS-Net section in this Newsletter.

We don't list Commercial/Business web sites in the New Sites On HIS-Net
