UnitedStatesBibleSociety: Newsletter
February 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.

Peanut Butter
A lesson in humility and dependence in the Lord.

George Washington Carver is most known for his invention of peanut butter but many don't know he was a Christian. In a message I heard preached several years ago, Mr. Carver came to a point in his life of frustration as an inventor. In this discouraging time of failed attempts to reach His goals he looked at a peanut with a heart of total surrender and prayed ,"Lord, can you just show me this peanut and what you created it for?" From this prayer of humility the Lord showed George the peanut. From his research he created over 100 applications of the peanut inventing everything from peanut butter to jet fuel. The difference in success and failure was his simple humility and dependence in the Lord. In making application we see how the Lord has all the answers to our problems if we simply humble ourselves, call out to Him in prayer, and submit ourselves to His will. How about you? Are you facing problems and obstacles in your life? Let us remember that the Lord has all the answers and we simply humble ourselves, pray, and seek His face - then will he reveal His Will and purpose for our lives. 

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, 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
Answered Prayer:  
In February we had the Lord answer our prayer as we were able to pay off our building as we had a specific donation to cover this particular need. We were blessed to be in Missions conferences all month and traveled to 5 states. We also had a car donated to us to help with our travels and a piano for our Home Ministry. Words cannot express my thanks for all who give and again, Thank You. The theme in these conferences was to simply to be faithful in being a missionary and the Lord will expand your work sending you more places as you are faithful. We are humbled and amazed at the Lord providing our needs as we continue to reach the world with the Gospel. I am excited about what the Lord is doing and again thank you for your prayers and gifts.

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 this 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 changing our focus from automating our Bible Request Search and Placement with a focus on individual ministry and prayer for each who contact us.  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.
