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.

A Gold Rush
Persistence Over Obstacles Uncovers Precious Riches
Recently my kids have made "Gold Rush" their favorite television show. If you have never seen the program it involves Gold Miners as they dig up ground prospecting for Gold. To find the Gold they must dig down to the bedrock to uncover the valuable Gold. These miners face many obstacles of Ice, Rocks, Frozen Ground, Extreme Weather, and Long Hours of digging as they sift the ground to find these nuggets, If they persist and don't quit their labor generally produces a pan of Gold which is a precious metal that is worth several thousand dollars. This show reminded me of studying our Bibles. It takes a little time and study to uncover the nuggets contained in its pages. In preparing the daily devotion I have the privilege to daily dig in the Bible and uncover the nuggets that it contains. What a privilege to study the Bible. If we do we will find the Spiritual Nuggets that we will cherish for eternity. 
Thank You
To Everyone's Efforts as Your Labor is not in Vain: 
"Thank You," for the total team effort that produced our second highest month ever. 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
Automation Program Begins: 
In February we started our Automation Program. Our goal is to handle our growing community to make sure no one is overlooked or left out. Communication will be the key as we are reaching millions each year. Our first step was to overhaul the Email system and we were able to complete it in 10 days. The new system has a great new look and we are receiving positive feedback on the new Devotions. We also had our second biggest month since we started 7 years ago. Below are our current statistics.

Looking Forward
Our Next Step: 
The Lord has given us great vision for the future. The next big step is Automating our Bible Request Search and Placement. This involves building an automated grid and making a data base of over sixty thousand partners. Next month we will work on catching up on the Bible Requests as we are 15 days behind due to the Email Automation. Once we catch up we will start our next step. Please pray for the Lord to help us step forward. This process will take an estimated year at a cost of ten thousand dollars.
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.
