New Bible Trimmer on site

We are excited to announce that we have finally raised enough funds to acquire a new book trimmer to replace our old unit.

The old unit served us well but it was old and in not so good shape when we bought it. While it served us well it has recently started having a lot of downtime which we could deal with but the big problem came in the form of an industry term called end of life which means the manufacturer had designated our model as no longer worthy of supporting it. This meant we had no availability to spare parts or technical support. We were on our own.

After much prayer we opted to buy a new machine from a different company. We bought a Challenge Machinery CMT330TC which is state of the art, used in large facilities world wide and makes great cuts.

It was installed on March 11, 2023 and we are learning how to operate and service the machine. We can cut over 400 bibles an hour and New Testaments can be cut three or four at a time. We can also trim John and Romans booklets.

We are very excited to see the quality of books that are coming off this machine. Our goal has always been to produce the best quality as a reflection of the author of the text, God who deserves to be glorified in all our work.

If you would like to know more about our ministry contact the church at 816-380-3033 and ask about having bibles or other texts for your ministries. We would be honored to partner with you.
