Encouraging News

News

We have been encouraged with the donations coming in for this new issue of Loaves & Fishes. My wife Esther is processing donations today and it looks like the deposit will top $8,000! Praise the Lord!

Hopefully, we will soon reach our goal of $15,000 for postage to mail all the Loaves & Fishes subscriptions.

Thank you for partnering with us in your prayers and support. We long to see these booklets go out soon!

For Christ,

Watch Darold Print Loaves & Fishes

News

We are excited to report that the printing of Loaves & Fishes, our free discipleship magazine for prisoners, has been completed, and some of the first books are ready to go! Praise the Lord!

Here is your chance to get a little behind-the-scenes tour of Loaves & Fishes in the print shop. The video below shows my dad printing Loaves & Fishes on our web press that prints on rolls of paper.

We are hoping to get the rest of these booklets bound in September and get the bulk mailing prepared. We are expecting it will take close to $15,000 to mail all these magazines. Please pray with us for these to go out into the prisons soon.

Visit our donations page to learn more about how you can help.

Sweet Rolls

News

On and on the printing press “rolls,” cranking out thousands and thousands of freshly printed sheets per hour. These are sweet rolls without sugar—it sure is sweet to see the press run again!

Darold (my dad) is on his second week of printing the new issue of Loaves & Fishes (volume 7, issue 1). This week he finished printing the color covers and the color section for the inside. Today he started printing the main body of the book on our web press which uses rolls of paper.

We are printing 85,000 copies of Loaves & Fishes this time. It takes over 200 miles of paper at 11 inches wide, which costs over $10,000.

We praise God for making it possible for us to purchase this paper and move ahead with the printing. Thank you, supporters, for your help!

Here are some photos I took of the printing.

Dad is hoping to finish the printing by the end of next week before our family vacation in the mountains. Please pray for continued success and good progress this week and next.

Our goal is to bind these booklets in September and start mailing them as soon as we have money for the postage. We think it will take around $15,000 to mail all the subscriptions.

Please pray for the postage we need to send these out and consider being a partner with us in this work. See our donation page for more information.

If 350 People Gave $1 a Day…

News

What Could Happen if 350 People Gave $1/Day?

If donations would increase by $350 a day, this would give us $10,000 more every month or $30,000 every quarter—enough to print Loaves & Fishes four times a year!

We see an urgent need to publish Loaves & Fishes at least four times per year. With the support we have now, we can print one issue a year.

Would you prayerfully consider helping us achieve this goal with a monthly gift of $30 or more?

Testimonial From a Prisoner:

“I found [Loaves & Fishes] to be exceptional in both the quality of the booklet itself, as well as its content.… I have diligently searched for resources of this nature for inmates and must say I have seen nothing on par with Loaves & Fishes. I pray for your continued success.”
