Our Church has a wonderful mission that they provide.
This is Dianne she is putting the paper in the plates.
These two ladies are putting the plates into the wooden cover that will be sent through the press.
Their names are Lois and Deloris.
He wanted me to take a picture of each part of the process so here they are. This is him placing the plate into the press.
Here is the press taking the plate from him.
Ok once the plates have been pressed this nice lady takes the papers from the plates and stacks them neatly. Her name is Eunice.
Once the paper has been removed from the plates they are handed over to Bertha. She punches holes into the papers so that they can be bound. This woman is quite funny and has just turned 80. (I think)
Bertha then passes the papers on to Luella who then binds the entire book together.
And this is Barb preparing new plates for use.
This is a special gentleman who enjoys helping with Braille. His name is Rick and he is in charge of making sure the plates keep moving down the line. He is also quick to spot a misplaced paper.
There are many other women who help with this process but were not in attendance this week. When we are working quickly we can make 9 books before coffee time! Oh yes you didn't think we Lutheran women got together for work and didn't stop for coffee did you? I would like to encourage my readers to check into their churches to see if they also participate in this mission or if there is another church in your area that does. They are always in need of new people willing to help! Keep this mission and these men and women in your prayers.
