During March we were able to bulk mail 94,533 books, and another 77,943 books in April 2017. This gives us a total of 172,476 for just two months distributed throughout the United States. The states that received books were Arizona, California, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Minnesota, Mississippi, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Oregon, North Dakota, New Jersey, Texas and Washington. For the glory of God, we have been getting alot of great responses from our bulk-mailings. On average we get three requests per day (90 per month) that come as a result of sending out the National Sunday Law books. (This does not count the calls that come in from the newspaper ads.) The people who are receiving the NSL books are also asking for more information, Bible studies and/or a copy of The Great Controversy book.
In the pictures to the right you will see how each individual NSL book gets an address label in preparation for shipping. These books are sent to the homes and post office boxes of entire towns and cities thereby reaching hundreds of thousands of people every month! We have the label machine running at full capacity. The speed of the label machine is around 3 books per second, which is still not fast enough at the rate our work is expanding. We actually have twin label machines. While one is running the other is either resting or getting maintenance. At this late hour of earth’s history, God’s work cannot stop simply because the label machine needs service for being overworked!
After the NSL books get labeled they are placed in trays destined to arrive at different zip code routes throughout the country – coast to coast. Praise the Lord. Each book is of great value; and not just to us but also to the Lord. God tells us of the value that is contained in each piece of literature that procalims the Three Angels’ Messages: “Even the fragments of a pamphlet or of a periodical should be regarded as of value. Who can estimate the influence that a torn page, containing the truths of the third angel’s message, may have upon the heart of some seeker after truth?
Every page that comes from the press is a ray of light from heaven, to shine into the byways and the hedges, shedding light upon the pathway of truth. Let us remember that somebody would be glad to receive every page that we can spare” (Publishing Ministry, 283).
