UnitedStatesBibleSociety: Newsletter
December 1, 2013 
Greetings!

Welcome to the Monthly Newsletter of the United States Bible Society. Our goal is to keep you informed on our Community and Ministry. Below is a word of encouragement, a thanksgiving, a look back, a look forward, our financial statement, and what we need to meet the vision the Lord has placed on our Hearts. Please enjoy and Pray over this Months Newsletter.

The Gift
Giving the Perfect Gift of the Season: Jesus-Christ
            
As we pass through the Thanksgiving holiday our attention is focused on the Christmas Season. Many of us take a moment and make a list of the gifts we would like to give to those we love. Our thoughts go to what our loved ones want or need as we make and attempt to get them a "perfect gift." Black Friday, special sales, and the gift requests of others send us on a journey to find them a "perfect gift."  When we think we have this gift we are relieved but as we wrap the gift we tend to feel some anxiety wondering if our loved one will like our choice for this "perfect gift." Some of the gifts we buy are not the correct size or not what they wanted and many times we simply fail at gift giving. We see stores packed after Christmas to testify to the truth that we did not find our loved ones the "perfect gift". In this quest for the gifts many of us loose focus on the reason of the Season. We get lost in commercialization of Christmas and miss out on giving and receiving the true gift of season, Jesus-Christ. During this season God wrapped His Love in Flesh and Blood and gave us the "Perfect Gift of Jesus-Christ". The Gift of Jesus is available to all and free to all who will receive. This Gift of Jesus is truly the Perfect Gift and if you receive it there will be no desire to take it back or a need for an exchange. The gift of Jesus never wears out, never goes out of style, and is never the wrong choice. This "Perfect Gift" is just that: "Perfect". How about you? Have you received the gift of Jesus? If you have never received Christ please  go to the link below and watch the brief video on how you can have this free gift:
  
  
If you have received this "Perfect Gift" our challenge is to give the gift of Jesus to everyone we contact this season. Share the Gospel to everyone using tracts, your testimony, your voice, your actions, your smile, and your life. This Christmas Season purpose in your heart to give the Perfect Gift, the gift of Jesus-Christ.  
  
Thank You
Your Efforts Producing Record Results: 
    
"Thank You," for the total team effort that produced another good volume month. We have surpassed the 8 million total web hit mark since we started this work and we are approaching almost half of those this year with our goal of 4 million web hits this year alone. Praise the Lord!!!  With this traffic we had another good report of Souls Saved, Bibles Distributed, Devotions Emailed, Web Hits, Bibles Downloaded, Audio Bibles Accessed, and Online Bibles Accessed. Thanks again, for everyone who Prayed, Supplied Funds, Made Visits, Answered Emails, Placed Phone Calls, Provided Bibles, Delivered Bibles, and Shared the Gospel. Your labor is not in vain as I receive mail every day of souls being saved and lives being changed. Let us be encouraged to press to the mark of continuing in the Lord, to do His Will, and His Work in these last days.
Looking Back
The Lord's Supply: 
In November we continued working on our record producing year. Each month comes with new challenges that cause us to change our goals and direction. With each challenge the Lord supplies our needs. Lydia is doing a great job helping with all the request while building our data base so we can continue with the automation of our Bible Requests. This help has allowed me to raise funds and help us meet our goal of paying off our building and we are $3000 from meeting our goal. Praise the Lord!!! Please continue to pray that we can be 100% debt free allowing us to serve in any capacity that the Lord leads. I am excited about what the Lord is doing and again thank you for your prayers.

Looking Forward
Our Next Step: 
     
The Lord placed on my heart to add the Life Application notes that I send in our daily devotion to our commentary section of our Online Bible. This will make each Chapter of our Online Bible a devotion in itself with a Chapter of Scripture, Matthew Henry Commentary on the Chapter, and now my Life Application Notes all on the same page. I will start this project next month. We are also Launching our Phone Gospel Message that works with the Tracts we had printed. This allows the caller to hear the Gospel Message and Order a Free Bible from our toll free phone number that is on the tract. We are still working through automating our Bible Request Search and Placement with a focus on raising funds to accomplish this task. We are praying that we can raise the $3,000 needed to pay off our building that will free up cash flow to accelerate the progress of our plan to reach the World with the Word of God. We also will update and expand our discipleship with an online college to equip saints for the great commission. All of our work will take prayer and funding as we make ourselves available to serve the Lord in this Ministry.  
Our Finances
 Ministry Finance Report  

 
Words cannot express our appreciation for all who give to the United States Bible Society. Funds given are only a small portion that is invested as thousand of Church Partners provide Bibles daily at their cost. As with any Ministry we have costs to provide our services. I too contribute to this Ministry and receive no personal support for our work. We have grown to the point where we need the Lord to Burden Churches and others to give to meet our financial needs. Thank you for your gifts.
