10,000 Books Being Prepped for Shipment to India!

The first floor is almost complete and ready for use in January. The second floor library is unfinished

With the classrooms almost ready for occupancy, the Grace Bible College library and classroom building is already impacting the school. Over Thanksgiving weekend, our Dean of Students, Sanjay, and his wife, Amruta, and their daughter, moved into their small apartment on the ground floor. After Christmas break, the female students will move into the girls’ dorm and the other 
two classrooms will be ready for use.

The library upstairs will be ready for the 10,000 books which will arrive in March from San Francisco. Final plans are in place for the un-precedented project we’re undertaking to sort and catalogue these books in Red Bluff, California by the end of January. Please pray for the IM staff and volunteers who will be participating.

We have a fantastic group who have signed up and we’re almost full, BUT if you’re thinking of coming, yes, we need you! There are six spaces open for volunteers entering in data (book titles and authors’ names).

We would love to have you join us for a few days or both weeks! Go online to register or email our office: info@IndigenousMinistries.org.

If you happen to live in the Redding/Red Bluff area, we need help on Sunday, January 15th, to move the books that afternoon.

When: January 16-28, 2017 – one or both weeks

Where: Red Bluff, CA at the Community Baptist Church

Project: Move 100s of boxes of books, sort, enter book data, attach spine labels, scan labels, re-pack books into boxes and load them into a shipping container. You will be placed on a team depending on what job you would like to do.

Other info: Volunteers are responsible for their own transportation, lodging, breakfasts and dinners. Lunches will be provided onsite for our volunteers.
