A Guest

 Mom and I had a late start as we had an emergency on the farm. Our big mare Galena was in labor and was not able to deliver her colt without assistance and the colt was a still born. We still made it to the Berean office just before 9:00 am but most of the volunteers were already there waiting. They went right to work opening and processing the mail. We had a guest come today, Ken, one of the board members came to ask questions and take a few pictures. Below he is talking to Marvin about some of our concerns with trying to get Bibles to prisoners. Shirley R had to read letters today as Kathy's husband Dave is still in the hospital. 

Shirley L and mom were using this room to work on the studies.
Skip, Marvin and Shirley R were the readers today then Skip was put on the computer to learn how to enter the Bible labels.  Once those were entered we moved into the other room to get the Bibles processed.
Above Ray, Chuck, Skip and Shirley are stuffing, wrapping and stamping Bibles. We found we needed more envelopes stamped with our bulk rate stamps and below Ron and mom are working on that.

We were thankful all went well today. We mailed out 29 Bibles and processed around 100 studies.

A Good Day

 We didn't have a lot of mail but there was enough other work to keep everyone that came busy today.

We got all the studies processed and sent out 32 Bibles. It was a good day.

Willing Workers

 We had a good amount of volunteers this morning along with a decent amount of mail this morning, almost 100 studies to process and 34 Bible requests.  Skip went right to work opening the letters while the others started on the studies.  Below Marvin is working on getting the Bible labels entered and printed out.

Skip and Marvin were discussing how to handle one of the requets.

Above and below were the study workers. Ron is slicing the envelopes open while Shirley and mom put the studies in order and apply the paper clips.
Kathy was a reader while Chuck and Joyce worked with the study labels. When that was finished they all moved to the next room to get the Bibles stuffed, wrapped, stamped and labeled along with stuffing and sealing the new studies going out.

With everyone working together we were able to finish the work before noon. I'm very thankful for such willing workers.
