Birthday Wishes for Chuck

Not a lot of studies today, less than a hundred but we had 77 Bible requests. That was up from 65 requests last week. Today is Chuck's birthday. He kept getting interrupted by phone calls all morning long from friends and family all wishing him a blessed birthday. Thankfully Jeanette, Bruce, Shirley and Vonnie got the studies processed.
 Leila, Marvin and Kathy were the readers of letters today and had a lot of letters to read. 
 Ruth came to help today and prepared our lunch.
We had a good morning and were finished with everything before noon. Thankful for the willing volunteers.

Joyfully Done

We had a good amount of mail today, over 200 studies and about a hundred letters. Thankfully we had the volunteers to process everything. We were all pleased when Shirley arrived. She got announced on Sunday and we wanted to hear all about it. Amazing how we could rejoice with her and keep working as she told her story.  The best news is that her fiance will be moving to Peoria so we won't have to lose her help.
 Marvin and Kathy were the readers today, we had 65 Bible requests, quite a few study requests and then some really nice thank you letters. 
 Jeanette helped Robin with stuffing and wrapping the Bibles. 
We finished by noon and were out of there by 12:30 pm. Each week I am amazed at how the work gets joyfully done.

Tooting Our Horn

We had a busy day today with lots of volunteers and all went well except I forgot the camera. The phone was used for a few pictures.

This office just processes the studies and the Bible requests. There are many other parts to this prison ministry of which sometimes the left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing. Even so it is amazing at how many people are touched by Berean Prison ministries from the local jails and prisons all over the United States, Russia and Romania. If I would start to list them or IF I even knew it would be like tooting our own horn.
