U.S.B.S: Newsletter
July 1, 2013 

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.

When the Enemy Attacks
Having Compassion and Making a Difference
The past Month has had us facing more attacks from the enemy than in previous times. Everything from our personal car breaking down, my personal bank account having fraudulent activity and monies taken out, to not being paid on a large job my side business was involved in, to my cell phone breaking, to a software glitch that caused our website to go off line for 18 hours...just to name a few. In our Daily Devotion we have passed through the book of Job and we see his attack from the enemy which made me tell my wife, "I can't wait to get to teach the book of Psalms." Now my struggles this month in no way compare to Job's but it does remind me that we are fighting a real enemy that attacks each of us. I am comforted that the Lord is in control and controlling the thermostat of the attack. I am also reminded of how the Lord wants us to learn and respond in the conflict. When we go through the conflict - we then can help others who will go through the conflict in the future. We can pray, extend a hand, and even have the right words to say in their time of need. Our Online Church Service also carried the theme to have compassion to others lives as we fight the battle. We all face battles and they can make us better or bitter, they can cause us to cling to God or run from God. Studying the book of Job shows us the right way and wrong way to go through the enemy attacks plus his friends show us the right and wrong to respond to those going through the attacks. Let us apply what we learn from the Scriptures to Cling to God and to have compassion for others to make a difference.
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 are still on course for our goal of 4 million web hits this year. 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 Continues: 
In June we continued with the automation of our Bible Requests. This project is massive and I pray we can finish it in a year. The process is slow but are making progress. Our biggest problem is having other Churches wanting to get involved through our email contact. If they don't know us it seems hey are not as willing to get involved. It will take a grass roots effort of those who see the program work to refer their Pastor friends and sister Churches. If you are a Pastor or working in a Church we would appreciate your referrals to fill in our automated Grid. Simply send us an email to info@bibles4free.com with "Referrals" in the subject line. We will then contact them by email to see if they want to participate. Our new website is doing well. www.USBibleSociety.com We are still working on a couple of items which is to be expected. The mobile site up also at  http://m.usbiblesociety.com and we received a free domain and chose www.googlefreebible.com to work with voice commands of cell phones. The new phone system is working also at (855) 5Bi-bles = (855)524-2537. Not to mention all the Bible Request were answered by hand. Looking back we see what the Lord accomplished and we are amazed. It is the body of Christ working together to reach so many. Thank you again.

Looking Forward
Our Next Step: 
Working through automating our Bible Request Search and Placement. We will be working on the new tools and work out the glitches. 
I plan to start a video section of the Daily Devotional and 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.
