WJTL is teaming with Bible League International to provide Bibles to those in desperate need. From South Asia, across the massive Indian subcontinent, and throughout the closed nations of the Middle East, tens or even hundreds of thousands of persecuted Christians long for Bibles.
Please join the WJTL community and Bible League International in a special effort to rush God’s Word to some of the most spiritually hungry parts of the world. Your tax-deductible gift to the “Bibles Behind the Lines” campaign will change lives, one Bible at a time.
Because of a special “Bibles Behind the Lines” campaign challenge grant, every $5 you give sends two Bibles. A gift of $50 sends 20 Bibles. $100 sends 40. A generous gift of $500 sends an amazing 200 Bibles to believers “behind the lines.” We are hoping the WJTL community can work together to provide 3600 Bibles before May 19th.
To join the effort, you can click here or call 1-800-YES-WORD
Persecuted Christians from the Middle East to South Asia need your prayers, and they need Bibles! When you join Bible League and WJTL in this vital effort, your gift will rush Bibles where they are needed most!

We had a great time making an Office Hero out of Dave Yerger this morning. Dave has worked at Summer’s Trucking in Ephrata for 38 years! Dave went the extra mile with his Donut Delivery entry. He included poetry! Send me an email if you would like to be an office hero. Just let me know where you work & how many folks you work with. Poetry is wonderful, but not necessary! Send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here is Dave’s tribute to the Donut Delivery:
your donut party sounds just great,
we’re 15 including me,
and while we sip and chew and dunk,
we’ll be listening to 90.3
you had a great Idea,
and we can’t wait to do our part,
eating round pastry with a center hole,
will give our day a real good start
so there’s my case why we should win it,
no hard feelings if we don’t,
we’ll miss the treat and recognition,
but those extra calories we won’t.
