Another Good Day

We had another great day at the Berean office. So many willing workers that not only did we get today's work done but tomorrow's work too. It helped that there only about half the mail we usually get.
 Above Bill is trying to look up an address on his phone from a prisoner that sent in a study with only his name, number, city and state. No street address, or prison name.  Thankfully google knows. Below Vonnie is opening the mail.

 Above Marvin is getting ready to open the letters and below Bruce is opening studies. 
 We had a new volunteer today, Benj works at Cat and Cat gives their workers a day off to volunteer somewhere. Last week Benj volunteered at the South Side Academy but they ran out of ceiling tiles so today he came here and was put to work by his dad, Marvin. 
 Marvin and Benj were a couple of our readers today. 
 When Bill arrived we asked him if he would mind making the coffee as David, who usually makes it, was not able to come today.
  David had a meeting while his wife Kathy went to TAG along with a lot of our other volunteers. We NEVER complain about TAG, that's where most of this wonderful help actually came from. One TAG meeting they asked Diane and I to give a talk about Berean, we did, showing the entire group what we were doing. We asked for help and help came in abundance.  In the picture below you will see lots of laughter. Poor Bruce got caught sitting in Chuck's chair. In his defense someone took the name off of the back of the chair.
 Speaking of chairs, below Jeanette is sitting in MY chair. When I asked if she would like to just stay there she quickly got up. We had a laugh at that too. 
 Below Jan, Benj and Marvin are busy at work reading request letters. 
 Bruce and Chuck are still chuckling over Bruce getting caught in the wrong chair as they are working on the labels. 
 Joyce was given the job separating the studies. That is Robin in the background. Robin is the organizer of that room, along with making all the copies, she keeps everyone stuffing the correct studies. 
 In the picture below these volunteers are actually doing tomorrow's work. They are stuffing, wrapping and labeling Bibles that will be mailed out today instead of tomorrow. 
Robin kept Chuck, Vonnie, Jeanette, Benj, Bill and Bruce working in an assembly line to get everything done by lunch time. We really do have a wonderful time processing the studies and filling the Bible request. Thankful to be working with so many amazing volunteers.
