This is great - so nice to be included in the receiving of the books that we so often ship. You see, some time ago, I got word from a guy named Travis in Nebraska saying how he and some other guys wanted to do something special for a pastor at their church. So these guys started pooling their pennies (ok, some dollars, too). For about a week or so, I'd get updates from Travis on how they were coming. Sure enough, with excitement that was fun for me to be a part of, Travis wrote that they had reached the goal. I personally pulled those books from our packing room, Jake boxed them up and we sent them on their way, with a prayer, via UPS. Well, this past Friday night, Pastor Erik and his family, pictured here, got to see an indication of just how much they are loved. He had hoped to accumulate this set over the next twenty years. You are a blessed man, Erik, in so many ways! Isn't this a great picture? Merry Christmas to all the guys at Omaha Bible Church, from all of us here at Banner of Truth!
