UnitedStatesBibleSociety: Newsletter
November 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.

Money and Miracles
What is that in your Hand ?

This Month the Lord placed on my heart a big project that would take a Miracle. I don't know if this happens to you but the Lord impressed on my heart to help with a Ministry project that is more money that I have every seen. As I pondered this project in my mind it seemed easy because I don't have the funds for this project so if it comes to pass it would have to be of the Lord. I did take this impression seriously and started praying specifically for this need. In prayer the Lord took my minds eye back to Exodus 7 where Moses was asked to an impossible task of delivering the message to Pharaoh. Here the Lord instructed Moses to take the staff that was in His hand and lay it down to see it turn into a serpent that swallowed up the magicians serpent and later used what was in his hand to turn the river into blood etc. God used what was in the hand of Moses to do many Miracles. I wonder what Moses thought when the Lord instructed Him to do these strange tasks. I wonder if he thought back on how God spared his life, let him grow up in that palace, and see all the blessings of God. Yes, Moses had the faith to do - what the Lord said - in giving what was in his hand. In making application, as I continued to pray I had to examine my heart and ask "would I give what the Lord placed in my hand?". If the Lord placed something in my hand would I then give it back to the Lord to meet this specific need? I thought about all the blessings He has bestowed in my life, how He had spared my life, saved my soul, met all my needs and I have come to the same conclusion in my life: "Yes, Lord, you can have anything you place in my hand and use it however you see fit" How about you? Has the Lord placed a specific burden on your Heart? If so are you willing to be as Moses to take what God places in your Hand (no matter how insignificant it seems to you) to give it to the Lord to see Him work a Miracle in your life? I believe that God is wanting you to trust Him, waiting to preform a miracle in your life if you will simply seek Him and take that which is in you hand and use it for the burden He has placed upon your heart.

Thank You
Your Labor is not in Vain. 
"Thank You," to all those who are apart of this work as we had another good report of Souls Saved, Bibles Distributed, Devotions Emailed, 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
An Exciting Month:  
In October we almost broke our record of monthly web hits receiving 1.43 million web hits coupled with the contacts we make through e-Devotions, Church Services, and email correspondence made our Ministry connecting over 2 million times in 120 countries. Praise the Lord. With this extra traffic and a record number of Bibles being delivered has kept us very busy. Remodeling also has continued as the Lord is making our home office more than we could ever of dreamed. I never thought the Lord would use us in such a large way but we realize that it is Jesus-Christ all things are possible. We Thank the Lord for what He is doing and again thank you for your prayers and gifts.

Looking Forward
Our Next Step: 
The Lord keeps giving us more ideas than we have time or resources so I have learned to pray over each idea and ask the Lord to complete these burdens on His time table. To give you a glimpse the Lord has impressed me to start which will be a testimony video website in kind of a modern version of the radio Unshackled. We have ideas of a video daily devotional, more Bible tools to go along with our downloads at pray for time for to be up and running as our new online store domain as we will attempt to offer Bibles at our cost to help with the need  of providing more Bibles to ship to our Ministry friends.We are continuing to fix up our Ministry Office with the goal of hosting more Bible Studies for our Local community with a special thanks to for the funds to complete these projects. We are continuing to work on 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.  We are working out the bugs in 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 continuing in the change of our focus from automating our Bible Request Search and Placement with a focus on individual ministry and prayer for each who contact us. If the Lord lays this on your heart you can give and we will apply the gifts to this specific need.
