Just Another Day........

For some maybe, but for others any day can be the opportunity to make a difference.

The work at Search would not prosper if not for the help of our many volunteers. On Tuesday, July 15th, we called in our volunteers, most of them from the Edmond Church of Christ, for our regular monthly mail out. 22 volunteers came to help us on this day and together they sent out 10,100 pieces of material to be shipped as bulk mail. And, they did it in only about 2 and 1/2 hours. Now that's fast work.

When it is all broken down it comes to 6,100 financial letters, 1600 cassette tapes and 2,400 transcripts, which translates into about 459 pieces of mail per person. The volunteers fold letters, insert tapes and transcripts, and seal envelopes. Our ministry could not prosper and grow without our volunteer days. For so many, this may have been just another day, but for Christians everywhere, we know different. This was a day to make a difference.

A mountain of monthly transcripts.
Financial letters and Cassette Tapes ready for packaging.A lonely start, but he'll soon have friends to help.
The volunteers hard at work. Kerry (in the upper left, standing) organizes and oversees all of the regular mail from Search every month. A large task.
