A Visit to the Anchor Book Depot

post date: January 22, 2011

After the Keep Believing board meeting this morning, we took a trip to visit the Anchor Book Depot in Chicago. It’s actually a storage locker where we keep 100,000 copies of the new edition of An Anchor for the Soul.

Ed Santiago works with Moody Publishers. He told us how glad Moody is to support the Anchor Book Project. We told him that without Moody, we would never have been able to give away over 400,000 copies of this little “gospel book.”

Ernie Schulz handles the distribution of all the books. He has a true servant’s heart for this ministry.

Believe it or not, this small room holds 100,000 copies of Anchor in 1400 boxes. Jim Walker climbed up to check it out. Everything is packed high and tight. 

Here you can see the members of board wedged into the storage room. Back row L-R Peter Faulkner, Cliff Raad, Skip Olson, MaryAnn Spiegel, Ray Pritchard. Front row L-R Brian Bill, Dave Hoy, Amber Cussen.

During the prayer time, we asked God to empty the room fast. We already have requests for 30,000 books. We prayed that God would direct each book to someone who needs to know Jesus.
