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.

Your Ministry
Let the Lord use You In His Service
Have you seen the television show 19 Kids and Counting? It is a show of a super sized family that has placed the Duggars family of 21 in the spotlight of America. Many are curious, many are critical, many are inspired of their story. We have had the privilege of meeting them 3 times, once at a book signing, again at a supporting Church during a conference, and then at a trade show. In speaking with them they see their life on display as a Ministry. Sharing Godly principles in how they live is the message they preach. They told us that God brought the Ministry to them and they just want to obey the Lord. Ours is a similar story, the Lord brought this Ministry to us and we are so humbled that the Lord would use us to reach so many. Looking back on the path of our life "Our Ministry" has been being obedient and pliable to do His Will for our lives as He places opportunities before us. We all have a Ministry or service to the Lord and yours will start in and through the local Church. In many emails we receive, we have many entering into the Ministry who are anxious about "finding their Ministry" when it actuality the Lord will bring it to you. Your Ministry might take you to China or Japan as the Duggars experienced but the Lord will open doors in His timing. He will use you. He will let you know and you are to be obedient and serve where He has placed you right now. Many times it won't be what you expect but just keep your eyes on Jesus and He will give you: Your Ministry.    
Thank You
To Everyone's Efforts as Your Labor is not in Vain: 
"Thank You," for the total team effort that produced another top 10 volumn month. 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
Catching Up: 
In March we focused on catching up on the Bible Requests as we are behind due to the automated email system that was implemented last month. Wow...it is now running and we now see it working as keeps track of everyone we are privileged to Minister. We have added 2 more volunteers to handle the increased email traffic fielding many questions about the Lord, along with the Bible Request, and Discipleship questions. We also enjoyed our Home Churches month long Mission Conference as we shared our Work with our congregation and were able to fellowship with many Missionaries from around the World via Skype and in person. I have been peaking at our new automation software and it is impressive. Our original plan will not work but the Lord is directing us. He showed us other software which has updated graphics along with new tools that we will unveil in the days ahead. Stay tuned. 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 start on the software grid and Automated Bible Request. This will take me off Bible Requests and I will hire someone to do what I did so I can lay out the new system and code the new system. 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 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.
