Neighbor to Neighbor, page 3

I must be getting old. Or, maybe I just needed water. Posting 105 fliers around my subdivision today took a lot out of me. However, I'm thrilled with the results.

My bible book club will have a membership of 5 ladies (and counting). I couldn't be happier.

The first lady (#1) who called, is very active in her church. She attends bible study and choir practice.

Lady #2 had never read her bible except in church. But, something kept nagging at her that she should read her bible at home, too.

Lady #3 had bought the house that my husband and I had wanted to buy. I had met her husband working out in the yard many times, but I had never met her.

Lady #4 had been going to bible studies all her life, but she felt she could always learn something more. I told her I was sure I could learn from her.

Lady #5 is an elderly woman who is in a wheelchair recuperating. She wishes she could attend, but she is on the mend. She asks that she be kept up to date on how our meetings are going. She would also like to read the same passages we are reading while she is at home. I look forward to visiting her as she has invited me to come over some time soon.

Lady #6 is me! Thrilled to make new friends who are willing to share their wisdom with me.
I should mention that I was 20 fliers short. So, tomorrow I'm hitting the street one more time.

60 + 80 + 105 + 20 = 265 There are approximately 265 homes in my subdivision. Now, I know.


  1. That's a great turn out. I shared meeting notices door-to-door in my neighborhood — and I didn't leave a paper at every house. I now understand how much time it takes to do something like that.

  2. Yep. Hubby says for commercial business it's 1 - 3% response. Definitely for such a narrow cause as a ladie's bible book club it will be less. Of course God is in the business of turning our statistics upside down. ;)

  3. Oh, thanks so much Stacy for joining my blog. I just noticed!
