Good Gifts

The program is growing again. We had more mail than usual and more Bible requests than last week. That is always a good sign that we are doing something right with this program. We had a brand new volunteer today, at least brand new in our office, Gertrude has been grading the intermediate studies for a few years but today she showed up at the Berean office to work.
We won't say how old Gertrude is but she was the oldest working with us today, hint...she is in her 90s. We were thankful she came as we were a little light on volunteers today. We were thrilled when Joyce and Jan came. Below Joyce is working on labels.
 Bill is hard at work on the computer while Kathy is reading letters. 
 Bruce and Chuck were kept busy with the mail and letters. At the other table Gertrude and Eva Jean were kept busy opening the mail. 
 Below are our 4 readers of the day, Leila, Jan, Marvin and Kathy. We had many request letters today and these 4 were kept busy.
 As soon as the mail was all opened and read, Chuck, Bruce, Eva Jean, Joyce and Marvin went to work on stuffing the studies. 
 Robin was in charge of keeping everyone busy and did a great job. We were able to get them all stuffed by lunch time. 
 After lunch everyone left except Robin and I. Robin got the Bibles wrapped and stamped while I worked on entering the Bible requests and printing out the address labels. By the time she had to leave I was working on the last sheet of labels. 
We were able to have all the mail plus all the Bibles that were going out today ready for when Bill Schick, the Berean director was due to arrive. He had a funeral this morning but promised to come this afternoon to mail out everything we had ready. We wanted to get these Bibles out today as just maybe they will arrive on or near Christmas for the prisoners requesting them. What a good gift that would be, the best GIFT of ALL! We will not be working on Wednesday as for the second time in 2 weeks we were able to get both Tuesday's and Wednesday's work finished in one day. What a gift for us, a free day.
