Celebrating Our “New” Shop

Loaves & Fishes

Sep 07

We just got done reorganizing the shop. It’s quite inspiring to have a “new” work area with lots more room. Between hauling off stuff we didn’t need and rearranging the work space, we gained well over 500 square feet and $500 from recycling scrap metal.

We will be outsourcing the printing of Loaves & Fishes magazine until something changes. So we need the shop area mostly for mailing and inventory. The printing presses and binding machine we use for Loaves & Fishes are still here, but now the center of the shop is open and it will be much more efficient for large mailings.

“I have been in and out of prison most of my life and I’m really looking for a change this time. I really don’t know much about God but I do believe in Him…. I’m back in prison as a result of my anger again. I’m tired of living this life style and I’m ready to break these chains and really live for God.”

Printing Company

The Lord is answering our prayer for a printing company. We found a high-end magazine printer in Florida that will print them for 20 cents each including the freight to our shop. This includes 64 pages plus a full-color cover.

Mail Room Update

Rosanne, my sister, is doing a great job in the mail room and current with all incoming mail and requests. This is totally amazing. I can’t remember that we were ever totally caught up in recent years. Of course, we still have opportunities to write prisoners, especially men.

The New Issue of Loaves & Fishes

Please continue to pray for us that we could have inspiration for the next issue of Loaves & Fishes and that the Lord would guide us to the material we need at the right time. He’s done it in the past and will do it again.

For the Kingdom,
