Blessings Galore

 We didn't have a lot of mail this morning but all of us had plenty to do and before we knew it the time had flown by. Below are a few pictures. Vonnie keeps everyone busy in one room while I work in the other.

Skip is running off the Bible postage while Shirley is working on the intermediate studies. 

Shirley and Chuck have already finished processing the studies and were put to work on envelopes in the picture above, below Skip, Leila and mom have an assembly line with the Bibles while Shirley is filling the intermediates, Megan is folding new studies then putting those with envelopes while Marvin makes copies.

After our coffee break which was coffee, 3 different kinds of a Danish pastry and cinnamon rolls Chuck left to pick up water for the volunteers. The office is on a well and Wayne does not think it is safe to drink. Chuck brought in 20 cases of water. Marvin, Chuck, Leila, mom and I formed and assembly line to get them out of Chucks trunk and into the office. We are very thankful for his efforts. 
We have so much to be thankful for. We GET to volunteer here, we have a WONDERUL office that is perfectly suited for this ministry and we can HELP prisoners all over America through this program. What a blessing this ministry has been to us as volunteers and to those requesting Bibles.

A Special Treat

 We had snow on our way to the Berean office this morning.  So much snow was coming down on the interstate it was hard to see the road. Below is a picture from the Berean office, the snow was still falling. 

I had to drop the truck off this morning to get the oil changed and tires rotated so mom followed me to Peoria Tire and Vulcanizing and we got to the Berean office at 8:55 am. Almost everyone was there waiting for us. Wayne walked in with a box of fresh baked donuts for our treat. With that to look forward to everyone was more than willing to get to work.

Bill was able to join us today, he goes back to Mayo Clinic next week to see if all the treatment worked. We think it did as he is looking much better.
Marie sent 2 of her kids to help today at the Berean office and did we ever put them to work.
These good strong young adults were so helpful. Justin and Megan were very willing to do the heavy work. As soon as we were done processing the studies we started on stuffing and wrapping the Bibles.

We finished before noon and really enjoyed those fresh baked delicious donuts from Wayne and Lukie. Those really were a special treat.

A Good Morning's Work

 We had a fun group come today all ready and willing to work.

We were easily able to get all the studies processed and the Bibles mailed out. Thankful for a good morning's work.
