Next Friday I will give the answer to the mini quiz and wrap up the Summer Bible reading challenge that began on June 1 for 120 days.

Today, I would like to invite people to join me reading the whole Bible in 60 days beginning on October 1.

We will again be using the five paperback sections - Law, History, Poetry, Prophets, New Testament.

I have created another mini challenge to run alongside roughly each of those five sections, this time using the first 60 Psalms.

Each day you read the Psalm and find the letter in the word and verse stated.

It is always the first letter of the word.

You must use the King James Bible.

I will give part one of the puzzle in this letter, and the other parts as we get to them.

This is for while we read the Law section, Genesis - Deuteronomy, from October 1 -13. When you have found the letters you will have two words (6 letters & 7 letters).

October 1 - Psalm 1 - Verse 6 - the 1st word.

October 2 - Psalm 2 - Verse 7 - the 13th word.

October 3 - Psalm 3 - Verse 1 - the 7th word.

October 4 - Psalm 4 - Verse 2 - the 6th word.

October 5 - Psalm 5 - Verse 8 - the 11th word.

October 6 - Psalm 6 - Verse 5 - the 7th word.

October 7 - Psalm 7 - Verse 9 - the 4th word.

October 8 - Psalm 8 - Verse 4 - the 2nd word.

October 9 - Psalm 9 - Verse 13 - the 9th word.

October 10 - Psalm 10 - Verse 18 - the 15th word.

October 11 - Psalm 11 - Verse 4 - the 15th word.

October 12th - Psalm 12 - Verse 6 - the 10th word.

October 13th - Psalm 13 - Verse 2 - the 9th word.

When we finish all five parts of this challenge you will have five sets of two words, that together make a whole, but can you tell me what it means?

Anyone can join me daily on Facebook, just add - Paul Minter. Please get your children involved and youth groups.

Why not cut this puzzle out and show friends?
