We began the Anchor of the Soul devotional booklet ministry in 2005. A missionary we were acquainted with had developed a devotional/discipleship series of files to be used for his ministry in Mexico and on the border of Texas. We worked with him to reformat the files into a booklet-style print-out and created mock-ups for the 4 booklets that we would produce- 2 in each series:
Our church organizes, collates, and sends out the devotionals. We contact churches on the border of Mexico and send them samples of booklets. We also send many of the devotionals to the missionaries we support in Mexico and Chile, they find the booklets very helpful for discipleship of new Christians.
We regularly place an ad in the Sword of the Lord publications advertising that we will send the booklets to anyone who requests them. Once completed, we will send a Bible to each individual who finishes the series (in either English or Spanish). As a result of this ad, we regularly receive requests for the Anchor of the Soul booklets from inmates all across the United States. We often receive letters from inmates who have completed the booklets thanking us for providing the booklets and sharing their stories of conversion or spiritual renewal.
