The mail for Berean had 10 returned Bibles so when Marvin arrived at the Berean office he went to work to find out why they were returned. One had on a sticker no books, periodicals, magazines allowed. Another had a note no leather, vinyl, or hard back books allowed. A few came back with the note this person already has a Bible. Some came back with the note full name and number required (we had their first and last name and the correct number but not a middle initial.) Another came back with housing required and on our label the housing number was blacked out. It is getting harder and harder to get Bibles to prisoners. What a crazy world we live in. Thankfully the Peoria County Jail is letting Berean workers in. Rhonda called from the jail, they needed Bibles. In the video below we were discussing how to get them there. At the end of the video Beth was telling us about some guests she had for dinner and how one of those guests became a Christian.

We didn't have a lot of mail but that was a good thing today. There was no water at the Berean office. The Unsickers had a water leak and had to turn it off until they could get a plumber there. We were able to finish everything by 10:30 am, had some home grown melon, coffee and brownies then left for home. Beth came today to help. We were all thrilled to have her. She gave us some updates and stories of different prisons and had everyone laughing.

We didn't have a lot of mail today as far as studies but ended up mailing out 86 Bibles. Not bad for a morning's work. Vonnie had us wrapping Bibles and folding enough 1-4's with the cover letters to stuff with the Bibles and with all of us working we were done in record time. Below Bill is working on the computer.
