UnitedStatesBibleSociety: Newsletter
January 1, 2014 

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.

Making New Year's Resolutions?
Resolution #1) Don't miss Heaven by 18 inches.
As we celebrate a New Year many of us sit down to make goals or resolutions. It makes me think of priorities in making sure I put 1st things 1st. In making my own list my mind goes back to a message from a few years ago, "Don't miss Heaven by 18 inches". This "18 inches" is the distance between a persons Head and Heart. I constantly come in contact with folks who have a knowledge of Jesus-Christ in their Head but have never been truly born again possessing Jesus-Christ in their Heart. Many make the claim of being a Christian through Church Membership, Family Heritage, A Baptism, etc. but when you talk to them more in depth you find they have never been Saved. They don't have a testimony and could never tell you about when they were born again. The truth is these precious folks will miss Heaven by 18 inches because they have a knowledge of Jesus-Christ but have never been forgiven of their sins. The truth is only those who have been "Born Again" are true "Christians" and this "New Birth" happens through a person being convicted of their sin by God, then repenting or turning from their sin by calling out to the Lord for forgiveness through the finished work at Calvary. These folks are "Truly Saved" and have Jesus-Christ living in their Heart. The Spirit of God then bears witness with them assuring them of their salvation. How about you? Are you 100% sure if you died today that you would go to Heaven? If not go to
and watch the brief video. My prayer for all that read our Newsletter is that the Lord would bless you and if you make Resolutions that you would be able to Check off, #1) Going to Heaven, so that no one will miss Heaven by 18 inches.  
Thank You
Your Efforts Producing a Record Year: 
"Thank You," for not just a another good volume month but a record producing Year. We have surpassed our largest year in reaching 4.3 million webhits in 2013. We are approaching 9 million as a Ministry since we started several yeas ago. 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 December we continued working on our record producing year. Each month comes with new challenges that cause us to change our goals and direction. This month we had a vehicle repair and increases with our server companies and email marketing company. With each challenge the Lord supplies our needs. Lydia is doing a great job helping with all the request while our data base has exceeded our software. This will cause another dely with the automation of our Bible Requests. This has caused me to focus on raising funds and help us meet our goals and studding software to see if I can build the system myself. 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 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.
