Welcome to the Monthly Newsletter of the United States Bible Society. Our goal is to keep you informed on our Community and Ministry.

Please enjoy and Pray over this Months Newsletter.

Seasons Change
Where is God in my Life?
As the air turns cooler and fall approaches we are reminded of how seasons change. The warm days of summer are ending, the daylight gets shorter, and the leaves on the tree change from green to the fall colors. Our attention of summer fun turns to fall festivals and the holidays are just around the corner. The change reminds us that time is passing and no season lasts forever. Each season change also reminds us of times past and experiences we have had. For many these experiences bring about an anticipation of things to come. The bottom line is that season change in this world we reside. In making a spiritual application we see our lives are full of seasons. Seasons of good times, seasons of hard times, season of plenty, seasons of need, seasons of health, seasons of sickness, seasons of life, and seasons of death. Life is precious and is to be enjoyed in and through our Lord Jesus-Christ. Unfortunately in this sin cursed world we will experience seasons that challenge us and our faith. Seasons we don't understand and Seasons that make us ask "Where is God?" In our Online Church Services we have addressing the Fear that comes from these seasons of change. In our Daily Devotions we have been walking through the Psalms and David faced some tough seasons. David penned for us his experience and in these seasons he reminds us that "God is Here". Every step we take our Lord is with us. He speaks to us through His Word and Listens and responds to our Prayers. The Lord has a purpose and plan for our tough seasons as He is conforming to the likeness of Jesus-Christ. Paul teaches us to content in all of our seasons of life. From personal experience I have grown closer to the Lord during my difficult seasons. One thing I can testify to is that seasons change. I don't know what season you may be going through but we are reminded in His Word, the Bible, that God is Here, He is Listening and Responding to our Prayers, and He speaking to us through the Pages of the living book we hold, The Bible.
Thank You
To Everyone's Efforts as Your Labor is not in Vain: 
"Thank You," for the total team effort that produced another good volume month. We have surpassed the 3 million web hit this year with a strong month of 450,347 web hits as we will be close to our 4 million web hit goal this year. Praise the LORD!!! A good report of Souls Saved, Bibles Distributed, Devotions Emailed, Web Hits, Bibles Downloaded, Audio Bibles Accessed, and Online Bible 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
Steps of Progress: 
In September we continued with the automation of our Bible Requests. This month we created a virtual map http://www.usbiblesociety.com/#!partners/c1zd1 that has every Church Partner we contact place a pin on a Map with the contact web information. So far we have placed just 4 days activity on the map. Now every time we make a connection of a Bible Request we have a record of the location of the Church as it relates to the requester. This will change our attempt from making a data base to a virtual data base that we can use in the future for a self serve Bible Request I have in mind for the future. Just think, A person looking for a Bible, can find a Bible in real time. When completed this will allow the process to go from 30 days to and instant connection. This will also direct the requester to the local Church which is a goal of ours. We are excited My daughter Lydia is now part of our team as she is working with this software I made. She is doing the Bible Requests on a Daily basis and when she completes a Bible Request it automatically adds a pin to the Map. With her addition I am free address more time to my responsibilities. I also created a carousel for the home page of our new site http://www.usbiblesociety.com/#!usbiblesocietycom/chi3 Let me know what you think. I am excited about what the Lord is doing and again thank you for your prayers.

Looking Forward
Our Next Step: 
Working through automating our Bible Request Search and Placement. Raising funds to accomplish this task. I 
will be seeking volunteers to help with the workload and answer the emails we have. With a little more funding we can hire someone in data processing that can do the tasks even faster. I will need help with the glitches in programing so please pray for us. The enemy seems to attack when we attempt to make improvements. This process will take prayer, funding, and patience.
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.
