Berean had a wonderful group of volunteers this week. We had 5 new volunteers come today, Larissa, Jessica, Gladys, Barb and Dori.
Once the work was done Eva Jean served lunch making us her yummy meat balls, veggies with peanut butter, chips then ice cream and cake for dessert. Once everyone was sitting Diane brought out the cake with candles and we had surprise birthday party for Chuck who turns 85 years old tomorrow.

We heard the rumble of thunder off in the distance on our walk but it was off in the distance and we thought just maybe the rain would miss us. I left for the Berean office at 8:15 before anything happened but when the rain gauge was checked this afternoon it showed we got another half inch of rain. That was a lot less than the rain that came pouring down at the Unsicker farm. We had another really good group of volunteers today come in sheltered by their many umbrellas. We put them right to work on labeling the Bibles or opening the studies.
Below Rachel is admiring the coat rack Wayne and Lukie hung for us.
We were able to finish right after noon and broke for lunch once all 491 Bibles from this week were all loaded.
Lunch time isn't just for eating, we have a lot of fun times too.

We had a light mail day because of the holiday. We can predict that each Tuesday after a holiday weekend our mail will be less than half the usual. We had 3 new volunteers come today. Each time someone new shows up we all feel like cheering. Many hands make light work and this means instead of working late into the afternoon we can get done hours earlier. Pam brought her mom Shirley and her son Ted to help out.
Matthew, Ted and Gary worked on one side of the table stuffing Bibles.
While Marie, Justin and Timmy worked on the other side.
Mom came in a little later and had to take the corner spot. She was actually put to work taking the pictures but didn't take the one below, her arm isn't long enough for a selfie.
Joan arrived with her younger kids. Hannah was put to work with Megan on the copies.
While Mackenson and Berlica were put to work stamping envelopes.
The office was hopping and just a little bit noisy but so so productive.

Today Diane picked up the mail at TEMCO while I drove straight to the Unsicker farm to unlock the office door for the volunteers coming today. We had such a great group of people today.
