8 Boxes FULL of Studies to be Graded
Another big day today and by the end of the day there are 5 more boxes of studies to be taken to church to join the 3 full boxes from last week. HELP!! We need help grading! Please if you have any time to give the prisoners would so much appreciate getting their study back soon. Below are a few pictures of our very busy day at the Berean office. Below Shirley is showing mom a touching letter.
Marvin L and Marie are working on opening the mail while Jeanette applies labels to envelopes. Mom, Shirley, Glenna, Eva Jean and Megan are busy opening mail. We were pretty thrilled to have Megan back. She has now graduated 8th grade and is out of school for the summer.
Lila, Marvin, Dave and Kathy were the readers today. By the time they were done there was almost 500 Bible request that came in today.
We were missing Chuck today, he was home sick with a cold. Praying he gets better soon. Below Justin is labeling Bibles. Those will go out on Thursday as I didn't have any way to haul them today. He got over 100 Bibles labeled and ready for mailing.
Two boxes were sent out to the Galveston jail by UPS today. Below Glenna, Shirley and Eva Jean are hard at work processing studies. Behind them Timothy and Marvin are hard at work too.
At noon we broke for lunch. This wasn't just a snack, Eva Jean provided the lunch today and we feasted! Marie brought her home grown lettuce from her garden for the salad. Everything was delicious. It was hard to go back to work after that meal.
Shelby came today and was put to work stuffing studies. She later posted the picture below
then wrote: This just breaks my heart- so many lost souls 💔I am thankful that God redirected my life and pray that he does these dear people too!
Below Jeanette is busy organizing the studies by number.so we know which study to send next.
Aunt Bernie popped in to get some business reply envelopes. We needed to order another 25,000 of these.
We had a busy but productive day. I am so very thankful for each and every volunteer that comes to this office. Many hands usually make light work unless we have a HUGE mail day, making us more than grateful for these many hands. We were not able to finish even though we worked until 3:00 pm so if anyone has any free hours and would like to volunteer I'll be there tomorrow from 9:00 am to noon. We have a bunch of envelopes that need to be stuffed.
