    I just had to make a slight correction. Die Botschaft serves only the Old Order Amish population and, despite its German title, is printed in English just like The Budget. I am a subscriber and actually generally prefer it to The Budget as it is more manageable and has stricter regulations on advertisements.

      Karen, is there a German-language version of that paper? I may be confusing it with another Amish newspaper…

        Perhaps you are thinking of Hiwwe wie Driwwe?

        Could be, thanks for the correction!

      I subscribed to Die Botschaft for many years and Karen is right it is in English, although the paper’s name means the Messenger in German. Anyhow, it is not a paper printed exclusively for the Amish as many of the scribes featured are Old Order Mennonites. I know several personally . But the paper does serve the Old Order of both Amish and Mennonite exclusively.
