Shepherd's Grip Update

Did you know that Shepherd's Grip Ministry donated over 30,000 Bibles and Christian books to the American Veterans in 2011?  We are now working on a grant that would allow us to double the number of Bibles that we will be able to donate.  Bibles and books have made it around the world in different military units in 2011. They have been shipped to the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard in every theater of Military operation.  Both Active and Reserve units have received Bibles and Christian books and some have asked to receive more.  We have also been able to supply enough to our "snow bird" friends in the VA Medical Centers in Mesa and the Phoenix Hospital which has required 2 times the amount of Bibles in 2011 than in  prior years. It is very exciting to see God working in many different peoples lives as we continue to expand the reach of the Ministry to so Many Hurting  Veterans in these tough times.  2011 was a very exciting time for us at Shepherds Grip as we fulfilled the requirements to become a 501(c)(3) non profit organization.  Any donations to Shepherds Grip Ministry is tax deductible and will receive a letter at the end of the year for income tax filing. 100% of the donations go directly for the  purchase of Bibles and books,  and we are redesigning a cover to better fit the Veteran population. Creating a book cover made for the American Veteran through Thomas Nelson Publishing Company is  awaiting the final cost to run the unique books.  So as you see, we are not standing still growing moss on our feet here at Shepherds Grip Ministry. As the Marines would say we are in full gear and heading forward.  We thank our Christian brothers and sisters for their donations for 2011 and looking forward to 2012.  May God Bless all who care for our American Veterans.  Because we know of their sacrifice, and they made them for us! Freedom is Not Free! If Your Heart Leads,  Please Donate, its easy and safe so we can expand Gods' Ministry to many more Veterans in our back yards that are Homeless, living on the streets and alley ways!! Trust me, it is not safe out there!!!  Help A Vet and Donate Today!!!
