Christmas Blessings

 This will be the last post in 2020. We will not be meeting the next two Tuesdays but will start back working on January 5th, 2021. We usually do not get enough mail between Christmas and New Years to meet and I'm leaving for Gulf Shores for the next 2 weeks. We had a good morning at the Berean office processing the mail, wrapping Bibles and mailing out 46 of them to prisoners. Below are a few pictures of our morning.

Marvin and Leila were the readers at first. Ray, Chuck, Bruce and both Shirleys opened the studies, applied labels and ran the postage machine. 
As soon as the studies were finished Shirley helped Marvin and Leila finish reading the letters.

Above Marvin and Shirley are still working on letters, below we are stuffing and wrapping Bibles. 
We finished by 11:00 am and sat down to enjoy a delicious sweet coffee cake Shirley brought in along her salty chex mix snack. We enjoyed munching on the sweet and salty while visiting. We at the Berean office would like to wish everyone a wonderful Christmas as we celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ and a happy new year.

Tuesday's News on Thursday

 This post is 2 days late, we met on Tuesday December 8th at the Berean office to work on the mail. We had happy helpers. 

Below is a serious picture, Ray and Shirley are working on labels while Marvin and Bruce were discussing the new postage machine.
We got everything done before 11:00 am and enjoyed coffee and cookies from Stephanie for our treat. We were kept busy but not overwhelmed. We are glad that each prisoner that asked for a Bible was sent a Bible Tuesday.

A Good Morning's Work

 We had a lot of mail today and a small group of volunteers. Thankfully all who came went right to work and knew what to do. We filled 43 Bible requests and had over 100 studies processed. 

I only took these 3 pictures, we were busy getting everything done and were finished just before noon. It was a VERY good morning's work. Leila brought a wonderful coffee cake from Trefzgers and Chuck made coffee to go with the coffee cake. Once everything was done we sat down and enjoyed eating, drinking and visiting. Mom and I took the Bibles down to the Bartonville post office for mailing on our way home. I am thankful to have that work done for the week.
