Ron Graham’s Report
— for Jan-Feb-Mar (1st Quarter) 2020

This page reports my work on simplybible.com for the information of those who take a special interest in that work.

This quarter was down on last year’s first quarter which was unusually high. There was the usual freshening wind in January to blow us out of the December Doldrums.

New Videos for Youtube

Over the quarter, 5 half‑hour videos were taken from the archive and converted into YouTube videos. The videos made and published this quarter were...

YouTube I Can! (1) Philippians
YouTube I Can! (2) The Spiritual Mind (Philippians)
YouTube I Can! (3) Are You Positive? (Philippians)
YouTube I Can! (4) Spiritual Wellbeing (Philippians)
YouTube I Can! (5) Toward our Goal (Philippians)

You can inspect the video library here:

December Doldrums

As happens every year, the page views figure for December was improved upon in January’s figure. December was around 231,000 whereas January was around 275,000. That's an improvement of 44,000. So we are sailing forward again.

Our 18th Year Underway

As 2020 began, so did the 18th year of simplybible.com online. We thank the Lord for his ongoing providence in helping this work to continue and grow.

Social Media

We continue to work on social media, especially on our facebook pages. The longest running page (facebook.com/simplybible) now has 4,598 followers. A rather new page (facebook.com/hardtohearwordofgod) has 805 followers to date.

Worship in Childers

We continued to hold Sunday morning services in our home. We were joined on several occasions by folk from Vanuatu working on local farms. On a couple of occasions men from Fiji attended. We also have one Christian lady meeting regularly with us by online presence using Skype.

As of March 2020, some of the ni-Vanuatu have been moved north of us, far enough away that they cannot attend. Those remaining in Childers mostly cannot come because of the social distancing rules. So we have supplied the Ni-Vans with lessons, and with the emblems for the Lord’s Supper. We've encouraged them to meet by themselves observing current social distancing regulations. We will continue using Skype but the Ni-Vans can't use it because they don't always have suitable internet access.

Thank You

Thank you once more for your ongoing assistance with the Lord’s work, for your prayers, for your interest and belief in my work on the website. The service we provide on the internet is all the more needed while the world is in “lockdown”. Together we "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation".

Love and best wishes in Jesus.
