We had another good day at the Berean office. We had a lot of request letters and by the time the readers had finished there were almost 80 new request that were filled. We also had over 100 studies come in.
Above and below everyone is working on the studies.
Each Tuesday at 9:30 Marvin set his phone alarm to go off and we have a prayer but Marvin was gone today. Unbelievably this week someone's phone went off right at that time and we thought it was the alarm so of course we had the prayer.
Below the volunteers are stuffing the new studies for each prisoner.
As soon as the studies finished we started working on stuffing and wrapping Bibles to fill the 79 requests that came in today.

We had a good morning at the Berean office today. One of the letters though was pretty funny. We actually burst out laughing when Marvin was reading it to us. The prisoner was doing the studies and sent a message that he had enough money to do the studies but wanted us to send him the answers. Just for the record, we don't charge anything for this study and always send a self addressed stamped envelope for the prisoner. Below are a few pictures of our morning.
Bill is holding up a very large snake skin. This wasn't found at the Berean office.
I actually brought it in to play a prank on Robin but she didn't come in today. I had it coiled up on her copy machine. Bill went right to work on the computer.
We had plenty of help and were able to get everything accomplished before noon.
We took extra long at lunch going over some ideas for the Berean Banquet that will be held in September.

I had to leave early from the Berean office so really pushed it to get all the computer work done. Thankfully Mark K came in to help with that part. We had plenty of great volunteers and I was able to get home by 11:30 am. The other workers all stayed to finish up.

We had a wonderful group of volunteers today and got everything done before noon. This gave us a chance to have a nice visit over lunch. I'm sure thankful for everything that happens in this place. Marvin has an alarm set on his phone that goes off every Tuesday morning at 9:30 so we remember to pray only today that didn't happen but mom's phone went off right at 9:30, Robin came in for the prayer and the rest of us were mystified why she was in this room. She told us, "I heard the alarm and none of you others paid any attention to it." Only then did we realize it was 9:30 and Marvin's alarm did not go off. Each Tuesday we pray not just for the program but every prisoner this reaches and the volunteers that make it happen. I'm so glad mom's phone went off at just the right time. Below are a few pictures of the morning.
