Dee here peeking from behind the screen to say Hi!
And I have some things to tell you!
Drawing for Mother’s Day!
In honor of Mother’s Day, David has decided to give away a copy of his new upcoming eBook, Sea Scribe! We put our heads together and decided to have a random drawing of all who tell us they want to be included in the drawing. You don’t necessarily have to leave a “comment” for this drawing, but you will need to contact us one way or another and say “yes!” or “count me in!” or some such communique so I know whose active emails to put into the “hat.”
This is in honor of mothers but you men with special ladies in your life can also enter! (I’m sure she’ll share her book with you if she wins one! ;)) (And if there is enough interest, David said to give away TWO copies of Sea Scribe! NOTE: Sea Scribe is in the editing stage and is several weeks out yet.)
I’ll make the winner announcement in our regular post on May 8, so be sure to send me your “yea” by May 7th. Sea Scribe is an excellent book you won’t want to miss, even though it’s not part of the COIL Series. You can read more about the book at the link above.
National Day of Prayer May 2nd
This is just a reminder of another opportunity to pray. Be sure to put May 2nd on your calendar. David has written a special article for his regular May 1st post in recognition of the National Day of Prayer as well.
A Bible for every believer in hostile nations!
Some of you may have seen the clickable button that I’ve placed at the top right of our site for an opportunity to place Bibles in the hands of believers that have asked for one who are in hostile or closed countries. Here is what Voice of the Martyrs says:
“Every month, VOM workers partner with local pastors to collect the names of Christians in hostile and restricted areas who need Bibles. We have distribution networks in place to get Bibles into their hands, but we need your help. Join us in providing God’s Word to these believers in China, India, Vietnam, Nepal, Nigeria, Indonesia and Pakistan.
“When you sponsor Bibles, we’ll send you the names of those who receive your sponsored Bibles so you can pray for them.”

Ten Google Reader Alternatives
You’ve probably heard about Google Reader retiring on July 1st. This is just a note for you RSS feed readers using that service. No need to get bummed by the news. If you’ve been reading Telbat’s Tablet through Google Reader, you can Subscribe to Telbat’s Tablet by Email and never miss a post or story! But if you really prefer a feed reader program, here’s a post by Author Media in which they give a list of Ten Google Reader Alternatives. The list is at the end of the post where she has links to each of the reader programs for you to check out. We hope this helps you prepare for the inevitable.
That’s all my news for this time. May the Lord bless you and keep you,
COMING UP: Next WEDNESDAY David has a post on prayer in recognition of the National Day of Prayer.
