Our coffee maker crashed. The coffee was made when I first arrived and thought my nose must not be working well as the fragrance of fresh made coffee did not fill the office. It was a bit later when the others discovered we weren't going to get any coffee to go with the pie. Who wants to eat pie without coffee. Instead of stopping for our coffee break we worked . I'll have to order a new one on-line and hopefully that will arrive before next Tuesday. The new envelopes didn't come today but we found enough from some of our stash on folded studies that we were able to get the Bibles out and the studies from today stuffed and ready for mailing.

As yesterday was a mail holiday I needed to leave by 7:45 am to drive down to the Peoria post office, pick up the Berean mail and get to the Berean office in time. There wasn't much of a line this morning so I made it there early enough to shovel snow, a small path from the Berean office to the parking lot. We had a lot of mail and not that many volunteers but it wasn't the mail that caused us all to work overtime. Our last order of business reply envelopes were missing the bar code on the bottom. We didn't notice but the post office sure did. That mean every study and every Bible going out had to have the business reply envelope changed and we were scrambling to find enough. Thankfully some of the older boxes of studies had been stuffed with the correct envelope. We just took from those and put on the new. Bill came and took the boxes back to the printer. Hopefully they can be fixed by next Tuesday. Below are a few pictures of our morning. Kathy and Skip were our only readers this morning.

We didn't have a lot of volunteers this first Tuesday of 2022 but enough to get everything done. Kathy, Marvin and Skip were the readers, Shirley, Ray and Shirley worked on the studies and I worked on the computer. We had about 80 studies come in and 38 Bible requests.
