The Truck Cometh – Over and Over

Our truck due Friday of last week finally arrived Tuesday. Five pallets totaling 5,406 pounds came about a quarter to one in the afternoon. On board were Global Harvest magazines and tracts – all the way from Hong Kong. A backorder of 5,000 of my tract, The One True Church of the Bible, will be shipped out Wednesday. That is the single most popular tract among the 80 or so tracts that we publish at World Evangelism, and it has been translated into 13 foreign languages, too. Another truck is scheduled to pull up to our doors on Friday of this week, bearing a book that is printed in Taylor, SC.

On hand to help unload today’s delivery were a father and son – Rafael and Isaac Barrantes – who work with us in the Spanish aspect of the World Evangelism ministry. Originally from Costa Rica, Rafael is the Editor of the Spanish edition of The Voice of Truth International, and Isaac is a student at Freed Hardeman University. They were in town to talk about the work, and while we were all having lunch, the truck came. In addition, Barbara Oliver from across the street, who formerly worked with World Evangelism and who does mission work in Costa Rica was invited to lunch. So, we had Paula Bates (Jerry is away in India), Betty Choate, the Barrantes, and Bonnie and me on hand today. We were unsuccessful in encouraging any of our visitors to return on Friday for the next truck!
