Another Good Morning

We had another really good morning at the Berean office. More mail came in than expected and it just seems like the volunteers all know their jobs so well they get right to work processing it. We started at 9:00 am and by 10:30 am had all the studies stuffed and were working on the Bibles. Below are a few pictures of the morning.

Sure thankful for the help and all the work that got done. There are still a few studies to be graded. IF anyone would like to help with grading just send me a text or call 309-208-3840 and I'll be glad to drop them off at your house for grading.

Huge Blessing

We didn't have a lot of mail at the Berean office today and was able to finish with the studies before 10:00 am so spent an hour wrapping Bibles. We only had 30 Bible requests today. We had a good group of volunteers and I am thankful for such willing workers.
 Above Kathy and Dave are reading letters while below Chuck, Shirley, Shirley, Marvin and Glenna are busy opening studies.

 Marvin worked on entering studies on the computer and then entering the Bible requests once the studies were finished.

 Leila was the other letter reader today.
 Bruce was busy stuffing and wrapping Bibles when he wasn't running the postage machine.
 When we finished processing all the studies we were able to wrap enough Bibles for at least a couple weeks worth of requests. Robin keeps the volunteers in this room organized.
 We enjoyed a snack when finished with everything of cinnamon rolls and coffee before cleaning up and heading home. All of the studies were claimed today for grading. Each week enough people have volunteered to grade the studies. That is a huge blessing during this time of the virus! The prisoners stuck in jails and prisons anxiously await this mail.

Drink Mixes and Masks

Today we had a lot of mail to go through and ended our work by filling the 86 Bible requests and mailing out over 450 studies to prisoners. There was so much mail we had to work until noon. Kathy and Dave weren't able to come but Bill brought in one of his daughters so she, Leila and Shirley read the request letters. Mark was busy entering studies at the computer while mom was opening the studies.
 Glenna, Chuck and Bruce were also kept busy with opening up the studies then applying the mailing labels.
We had quite a time at the Berean office today. Gifts came in the mail for the volunteers. Leila  opened a letter with 2 drink mixes and a mask included. This caused some jokes and laughter all around.

Below Bill is telling Leila what to do with the presents.
We didn't have enough wrapped Bibles for today's mailing so the group quickly stuffed and wrapped them before lunch.
We were done by noon and enjoyed a lasagna meal for our lunch.  I was very thankful we had so many willing volunteers to help with such a big mailing.

What a Blessing

There were volunteers waiting for mom and I by the time we arrived at the Berean office. Everyone was already hard at work. We didn't have a lot of mail and were able to finish everything by 10:40 am.

Bill came and mailed the Bibles out and the studies were taken to Meister's where Amanda the receptionist will take them to her mother who will deliver them to Linda Hodel for the Roanoke church to grade. Through out this 11 weeks we are very pleased that the studies were still processed, Bibles were still sent out and we had enough people willing to grade. What a blessing!
