New Tape Dispenser

 We had a decent amount of mail today and were glad for each volunteer that came to help. Marvin brought the treats and also the tape dispenser he made for our large roll of tape. 

It works perfectly.  Those two cut out parts make it easy to pull the tape up from any hand. Marvin told us Gail came up with that. The postage machine was out of money today but Skip and Marvin figured out how to refill that as the rest worked on studies.
Kathy was the only reader today but we didn't have a lot of letters so she was able to finish about the same time we finished.
The letter readers usually work longer than the rest of us in that room. 
We move to the other room to fill studies and get the Bibles ready for mailing.

We left there at 11:15 am stopped first at the Hanna City post office to drop off the Bibles and studies going out to the prisoners today. The next stop was to fill the wheelchair van with gas.
Gas dropped to $3:56 a gallon but is much too high for those working people that have to drive much distance in a van that maybe gets 9 miles to the gallon.  But we are thankful it works!

Valentines Day

 As today is Valentines day mom brought the heart she got from Karin and offered chocolates to everyone.

We also had a cheese cake to share but both were eaten after the work. Below is a video of just some of our work today.
A couple really nice letters came in.

Cold Office

 Skip called early that the heat was not working at the Berean office. Mark promised to send someone right out but when Diane, mom and I arrived Caleb the technician had not yet been there and yes it was cold. Just check out those winter coats. 

The office was still full of laughter, a little cold can't keep this group down.
In all serious though we finished our work quickly and skipped the dessert and coffee. When Caleb arrived he found the furnace was fine, there was just no propane going to the furnace. Chip took care f that.  Thankful for the easy fix.
