Here we are, well into 2022, and we’ve made it because of the Lord’s compassions, “new every morning” (Lamentations 3:22, 23) — and every year! We look forward to seeing the new things God has planned for us as we seek to do His will.
Some things don’t seem so new, however. Like the pandemic. We’re still battling it, with advances and setbacks. As you’ve heard, the pandemic dealt a hard financial blow to the Bible Advocate Press in 2020 and 2021, which we described in our annual spring support letter. We continue to struggle with postage and paper costs that increase regardless of what the virus is doing. This affects the printing of the BA and our original BAP study material.
At year end and three-quarters through the fiscal year, our expenses exceed revenue by $32,700. That’s a big deficit! Of course, we still endeavor to be faithful stewards of the resources God has provided, finding every way to save money. But we need your help.
The Bible Advocate has been a free publication for decades, and we want to keep it that way for as long as possible. Please give to the BA and purchase our products as you are able. We’ve made it easy. Just go online to baonline.org and click on “Donate.” It’s safe and convenient. We welcome donations by check as well. Please make your check out to Bible Advocate Press and mail it to P.O. Box 33677, Denver, CO 80233.
Help us start 2022 out right, trusting God for our needs and watching His compassions renew in the new year.
