17 Volunteers Get out Over 500 Bibles

Amazing but 17 people showed up today to help with the Bible program. Even though we were crammed into the room we are so glad for the help everyone that came was more than welcome. Just about every available work space was put in use. Below are a few pictures of the morning with our wonderful volunteers. In the picture below Cheryl and the kids are putting the labels on the 20 boxes of Bibles Joan's group wrapped on Tuesday.
 Tiffany brought Lisa's horde of kids along with one of her own to help get the Bibles out. Rachel's friend Cheryl came for the first time and if we are blessed will come again. Our usual helpers from Thursday also came..Eva Jean, Roma, Diane R, Edie, Diane H,  Chuck and even Sarah came down to help.

 Above they are getting the paper work ready to stuff in the Bibles and below they are busy stuffing, wrapping and labeling more Bibles. We didn't keep track today of exactly how many went out but by the time they had them all loaded in Mark's van it was stuffed pretty full. When Mark and Spark took them to the post office they were pretty sure they unloaded 43 or 44 boxes so we know it was over 500 Bibles that went out this week.
With so many hard workers we had everything done by noon just in time for lunch.

 The best news for us was that Tim Martin called, the Roanoke and Goodfield young groups are back wrapping and he has 600 Bibles all wrapped and ready to bring down for Tuesday. So so thankful to have that help. I must say these last 3 weeks without their help was difficult.
Our number 1 prayer request this week is for new and willing graders. We have another request we have been praying about but not sure it is appropriate. We need a bigger work space. Do you think that is too much to ask? I was reminded that Our God knows our needs before we ask, but this is such a big request that I am embarrassed to write it here.
