Artist Unknown:

I had to share something with you. Remember I had this burden to get Large Print Bibles for the Rescue Mission. I sent out 12 letters asking specific churches to help and I posted several fliers stating I would pick up any that needed to be transported.( Some people are afraid to go there) Yesterday I got a call from the lady that owns the Christian bookstore. She had a large print bible for me. I thanked her and she said "No thank you. Another church just called and ordered 24 Large Print bibles for the Rescue Mission." I nearly cried! I was so happy! A lot of people there do not have their glasses and cannot see to read the words...I know now it really was God telling me to get this ball rolling...I obeyed! It is a good feeling! God Bless you all and help me pray for more large print Bibles for the Mission!

Hi Lilly,
Bless your heart for doing that. That is going to mean so much to people who really need them.

How wonderful! It's going to mean so much. Is there a certain "version" of the bible you are looking for? I have some, not sure what they print on them is though, as they were my daughter's when she was going through middle school. I'd be happy to check though.

Hi Lilly,

Thanks for your visit to my blog. It's great to be able to meet new people.
I have this picture, I love it because if looks so much like pictures I have of my mother when she was about that age.
I don't have a large print bible, but I'll ask at church. Best of luck with your task.
