We arrived at the Berean office just in time to watch Chuck unlock the door. The mail was brought inside and as each arrived they went right to work. Our computer needed to update so the studies couldn't be entered until 9:30 am but there was other jobs to do while the update was happening.

Mom and I left a little early this morning. We drove first to the Casey's in Hanna City, but there were too many cars, too many people and not enough donuts so we drove to the one by the jail. They had plenty of donuts BUT the donuts weren't near as good as the Hanna City Casey's. They don't use as much icing and frankly they didn't taste as fresh, kind of like they had been sitting there overnight AND cost $3.00 extra. I guess if we want fresh donuts I have to go to our Hanna City Casey's EARLY in the morning. It is worth the extra 8 miles (4 there and 4 back) to get delicious fresh baked. That is probably why there are so many people lined up for donuts in Hanna City. Those customers are more than likely coming from Peoria. When we arrived Chuck and Skip were already waiting with a fresh pot of coffee. They decided to eat theirs before working. We had a very good crew working today and got a lot done. We also had 36 Bible request today. Below are a few pictures of the morning.

Mom and I stopped at Casey's this morning early to pick up donuts for the Berean volunteers. Casey's was open but accepting cash only AND they were almost out of donuts. I was able to snag 9 but wasn't sure if I had enough cash on me so put them on the counter, told the customer who I was behind in the long line that I was just going out to the car to look for cash then went out to the car and asked mom if she had any cash. She had $6.00 on her and between us we had enough to purchase those 9 delicious donuts. The lady that was saving my place in line asked as soon as I walked back, "do you need some cash? We really have nice people here in Hanna City. BUT if you want more than 9 donuts one had better get there when they open. I guess we also have a donut shortage along with our gas and lumber shortage. We had a good group of volunteers today and got everything done by 11:00 am. Below are a few pictures of our morning there.

We are getting concerned that our Bible requests are dropping but then realized during the pandemic they let thousands of prisoners out and made marijuana legal. Hopefully those that need and want a Bible will still know where to ask for one. We were able to finish everything by 11:00 am. Below are a few pictures from our morning.

Mom and I stopped at Casey's on the way in to the Berean office to pick up a dozen of fresh baked donuts for our coffee break. We were a little early and thought we would be the first ones to the office only to find 2 cars already there. Bruce and Skip were both already waiting for the mail. Bill picked up the mail this morning and got stuck in that long line at the Peoria post office. They only have 1 teller working in the mornings. Meanwhile most of us had arrived and were visiting around the table while waiting.
