Dear Wake Up Family!
I am thrilled at the many reports I have received concerning our goal of reaching one million people and giving away one million dollars in materials over the next three years! To reach our financial objective, we need to average about $28,000 per month. As you can see from the statistics, we missed by a mere $2,000 for our first month. This is an incredible start and once you get into the habit of sharing every day and we have a variety of booklets available (we are producing them as fast as possible), we can reach our goals! Our YouTube outreach continues to produce strong results, during the month of June, 10,932 visitors viewed 126,867 minutes! Our new and improved website had 24,608 visitors this past month! Overall, we are very happy with June 2019. Please order and share the booklets! Please continue to pray that the seed sown will produce a wonderful harvest for the Lord! Please let us know if you have a story to share that will inspire others to share-share-share! I’m still doing all I can for the Lord with my “often useless” right arm tied behind my back. Grinning… May the Lord continue to bless each of you in every way.
New Web Server
As announced in the WUAS NewsWatch, we have changed the hosting provider for the wake-up.org website to a new host. The primary reason we made the change was to make the pages on the WUAS website load faster. Many studies have shown when a webpage is slow to load, more people will choose not to wait. We are excited our efforts to speed up the website were successful. In the past few months, page loads took between two and three seconds to load. Sometimes, the delay was as long as ten seconds. With the switch to the new server in June, the page loads are averaging about a little over one second, depending on the test location. This significant speed increase should make the WUAS site more responsive and also make the site more accessible to users.
During the next year, we plan to continue upgrading the website to make it more user friendly and appealing to individuals for Bible study.
We have had some growing pains with the release of new booklets. This newsletter is already a week late due to printer delays. We now have two additional booklets being printed and anticipate that we will begin sending two mailings with sample booklets out each month beginning the first week of July. Here are the anticipated dates and items for the mailings.
Sunday or Saturday – Which is Holy? (44 pages) – Enclosed this month
Are You Ready for the Second Coming? (52 pages) – July 5
The Antichrist – When Will He Appear? (Pt. 2) (32 pages) – July 17
The Antichrist – His Worldwide Deception (Pt. 3) – August 9
The Antichrist – His Throne and Tattoo (Pt. 4) – August 23
Unfortunately, we have had a one month delay in shipping the remaining antichrist booklets. Our printer is taking about three weeks to deliver the completed booklets, so we will not have Part 2 of the series available until the second week of July. Instead of delaying a shipment until then, we have elected to mail the Sabbath booklet in an earlier mailing so we can maintain the bimonthly schedule.
Translation of No More Delay
A long-time supporter of WUAS has had a burden to reach individuals in Pakistan with important Biblical and health information. Barbara Kerr has recently returned from Pakistan where she gave a series of well-received health messages. She is working to have the book, No More Delay, translated into the Urdu dialect and printed in Pakistan. She is also working on a website where videos of her lectures, books, and other materials will be available for downloading. We will keep you informed as progress on this project continues. Pray with us that this information will reach people in Pakistan and convict them of Jesus’ soon return!
Faith Fellowship – Round Rock, Texas
If you would like to view a weekly Sabbath service presented by people who understand Revelation’s story, turn in to www.faithfellowshiprr.org at 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM central time and you can watch a service including music, prayer, and a message. One participant in that service, Chris Jack, is currently recording a series of videos on the 17 prophecies. You can watch these videos or order DVDs at www.rrfaithministries.org.
Million Dollar Giveaway Update!
The WUAS office has already distributed thousands of items through the giveaway. As of June 19, the value of books and costs for producing and shipping them exceed $26,000! As more booklets become available, we anticipate this amount will continue to grow! We are very excited about this program and know you will be when you see the new booklets we are preparing. Pray with us the Lord will bless this new outreach.
