U.S.B.S: Newsletter
August 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.

Who am I ?
Does my heart belong to HIM ?
The past Month has had us focusing on who am I in Christ Jesus as we have transitioned from the book of Job to the Book of Psalm in our Daily Devotional. As we see David penning these early Psalm's we see a imperfect man facing struggles and a man truly after God's own heart as he gains his identity in the Lord. David really comes to a marvelous conclusion that the Lord is His Defense, Deliver, Reputation, Confidence, Help, Worth, Justice, Reputation, with one constant thread woven between them all, his Faith in Him. In our online Church Services we been in a study in Hebrews about Faith. Making application in our studies and services we see, "who we are In Christ Jesus". As saved individuals we truly are in HIM and HE is in us. This truth should have us, "seek HIM" and "yield to HIM" for we should see that - the only truly good thing in me is HIM. As we grow in the Lord it should cause us to yield to HIM and HIS will. It is no longer me, my time, my desires, my wants, my needs, my possessions, but rather HIS time, HIS desires, HIS wants, HIS needs, HIS possessions. What I see in modern Christianity is "What can God do for me" but when I read the Bible, study the Bible, and apply it to my life - I get just the opposite desire, "What can I do for HIM" for my Identity is JESUS-CHRIST the true hope of Glory. How about you? Does your heart identify with the Psalmists? Are you saved? If so, let us yield our lives to HIM and HIS WORD for, as a true Christian, when we ask "Who am I" the SPIRIT OF GOD in us should say "I am HIS" and being HIS we should do HIS will through our faith in HIS WORD.
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 have surpassed the 2 million web hit mark. Praise the LORD!!! 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
Slight Summer Slowdown: 
In July we continued with the automation of our Bible Requests. This month the project slowed down as the funds to continue the project slowed also. This is to be expected and summer break and family vacations affect giving which has me focusing on making sure the current Bible request get to Churches. We cannot lose focus that our first priority is the "Bible Requester" making sure he/she receives the Bible and the Gospel. With our system everyone who contacts us and requests the Bible will get an "Electronic Form" of the Bible and the opportunity to view the Gospel Video on how they can be saved. Every Requester also gets a chance to order our Free Daily Devotional email, Free Online Church Service, and we follow up with the requester at 30 days to see if they received what they request. I have made a goal to process every request 1st. with the time and resources we have and if we have any extra time or resources to devote them to our automation project. I am not discouraged when things don't go on "my time table" but have come to realize that God is in control and we are on HIS timetable. We were able to work out the bugs on our phone system at (855) 5Bi-bles = (855)524-2537. This allows folks to get us the information we need to meet their requests using automation. Since we are a global Ministry in 120 countries now we get calls 24/7 and now we can gather information and get to everyone no matter how busy the phone lines get or what time of day they call. 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.
