Books for Joey Dela Paz

Okay, here’s the list of all the new books that Joey Dela Paz will be receiving in response to our friendly appeal. The generous responses have been quite overwhelming – and Joey is extremely happy about his new library (over 50 books in total!). A few books were donated anonymously, so I haven’t listed them here; and, in addition, the Theological Book Network (together with Eerdmans) is planning to send a shipment of books to Joey’s Missions Training Center.

I am sure the next appeal will be for IKEA to donate a free book shelf...

Wow, that's so great. Three cheers for the theology book industry!

A very nice list. Be blessed Joey!

Great choices - I'm impressed by the generosity of both individuals and publishers. They are even more blessed than Joey, according to Acts 20.35.

I was in Chiang Mai yesterday for our visa extension. I spent three hours at the immigration office and the rest of the time was spent in the bus. Narlin opened my email and called me up about the exciting news of unexpectedly having a library of more than 50 excellent theological books. I was overjoyed; it was like winning a lottery.

When Ben informed me about his plan to post a friendly appeal, I think it was a great idea. But as he said, we never quite imagined that the response from individuals, book sellers, publishers and distributors would be anything like this. It is indeed overwhelming. Apparently, those who got involved saw a genuine need to provide theological books for me personally and also for the students. These books will be made available to them as well.

Two of the good people from the book sellers and publishers got in touched with me through Ben. Eventually, this leads to contact with TBN and we are looking for ways how to receive a shipment of books for the training center. We still don’t know if it will work, nonetheless, it is great to meet the good people behind this ministry.

I agree with Kanzel, we need a book shelf; perhaps you can donate one ;-). Frank, I’m really blessed and Byron, I agree that those who gave have been blessed twice as I. Three dozen cheers for the theology book industry. They are a generous bunch!

Since last week, the whole family has been very excited waiting for the postman bringing us boxes of books. My children like the look and smell of newly printed books but I hope that someday they also be reading these excellent books.

There are moments when you receive so much that makes you feel that words are not enough to express gratitude. But there are also times when words are all you have to do so. Ben and I want to say a million thanks to those who blessed me with these treasures. To my fellow bloggers-readers and Ben’s (who have thousand more readers than mine) who contributed cash, I have no idea who you are, unless Ben tells me. :-) Maraming salamat po! (Many thanks!)

Ben Myers said...

Thanks for your comment, Joey. And I agree: there's nothing better than getting nice new books in the mail!

I should also say a special thanks to James from Eisenbrauns, who helped to co-ordinate some of these donations. Thanks, James!

Joey said...

And yes, special thanks to James for his kindness in coordinating with a publisher and with TBN
