The Ellen Payne Odom Genealogy Library Family Tree
The Family Tree - April/May 2003

Our pastor has learned of a need for small Bibles for our military troops who have been called up and sent overseas in certain areas of the Middle East. Certain of those countries are forbidden to sell religious items and the bibles are just not available to our troops. The troops are requesting ‘shirt pocket’ sized New Testaments and love the ones with the camouflaged covers. They are also requesting religious tracks, Christian CD’s, crosses and other printed materials.

Our church recently took up an offering for some of the Bibles and received enough to send a case and they were immediately grabbed up! The cost is less than $2.00 (actually, about $1.35 each) and it will really make you feel good to send these items. They also enjoy reading personal notes that you could place inside the Bibles, stamp the name of your church or short notes suitable for any person, male or female.

Please do not stop this request at your church. Send it on to other churches where you have friends or contacts. There is a great need for these Bibles and many thousands of our military troops are over there without Bibles. You will never miss the small price of these Bibles and it will really give you a good feeling to know that you helped someone.

A Customs Form, obtained at the Post Office will be required for each box. When listing the contents, please write the words, "Books"; do not state that the contents are religious materials.

Address the boxes to:

Lt Col Daniel Nigolian
444 AEG HC
APO AE 09367

Thank you very much and may God Bless you in your generosity;

James F. "Jim" Cone
