Radio stations and publications ran publicity about the
nationwide and northwest Bible drives. Also the website and email
autoresponder continues to give out much information through http://www.bf.org/bibledrive and firstname.lastname@example.org. This year
through the end of October, Bible Foundation received about 8,000
Bibles, Testaments, etc.
Of the many calls, letters and email queries
weve received this quarter, it was a pleasure to assist
with requests from Israel, Scotland and South Africa.
Cowboys and children in Oklahoma receive
Gods love. Folks there have a saddle shop with boot repair,
leatherwork, blacksmith, and a library. They are also involved
with a rodeo company and have Bibles and Christian literature
available at no charge in the shop and at the rodeo.
The Bible mystery man started dropping
off hundreds of Bibles at a time at one of the collection
centers. The frequency of every two to three weeks made it more
mysterious. One day in conversation he told the storeowner that
because the Bible ministry was there, getting used Bibles to
needy people around the world, he took it on as a personal
ministry to collect as many Bibles as possible, scrounging them
wherever he could, even climbing into dumpsters when needed.
The bread man showed up September 15,
part of the crew delivering several tons of the Bread of Life.
The Bibles and portions were brought to Newberg from the Midwest
by a ministry God raised up to help with the free and low cost
transportation of Bibles.
From the mail bag:
- NIGERIA: "The Muslims
hierarchy set fire on our Bible College and many others.
Our staff quarters and administration buildings were
completely burnt down instantly. We could only stand and
cry out to God as we saw everythings devoured by the
fiery flames which leaped high into the air. The week of
violence left 6 dead students, 198 injured and a group of
In regard to our request, we are
appealing to you and your congregations to kindly support
and help us with several copies of Thompson Chain
reference Bibles, Holy Bibles
- TOGO: "I read one of your
tracts entitled "The King of Heaven" and I
decide to write you. I am a lay preacher of the gospel of
our Lord Jesus Christ and tracts of this kinds and others
are very good for evangelism. Please, I want you to send
me tracts as plenty as you can to enable me and my team
to continue with the gospel. I want you also to send me
some Bibles for me and my friends."
- NIGERIA: "This is to inform
you that I came across some of your tracts, going through
them, with the Lord of God, I become overwhelm. Further,
I will be much delighted of other Holy books like Bible
could be sent to me."
- GHANA: "When you told me to
read the 48 scriptures carefully at about 30 times. At
that time I was lazy, greedy, and was not good in mind
too. When read it I knew that greedy and laziness is not
good. I change my life and now I obey and respect anyone
who is older than me. I pray to ask God to give wisdom as
you said. And God listen to my prayers and gave me
wisdom. Even last term, my position was 20th but this
term my position was 1st. I thank God very much. My good
friend thank you for advising me with the 48

being able to find and access your website.- thanks very
much for the service you provide I am in need of some
help and will give you some details about myself. We have
also commenced a ministry "Gospel Outreach"

correspondence courses to those who are interested."
- NIGERIA: "Christ deliver me
from the kingdom of darkness and transform me to the
kingdom of light. I and my family were Muslims and I was
born in the northern region of Nigeria. I collaborated
with some Muslim leaders to commit all source of
atrocity, including the killing of ministers of God.
However, I was not only called by God for
repentance, but to minister His word to the lost,
especially the Muslims in Africa, because if we don't
reach out to them in love and share the gospel with them,
they will be increasingly radicalized by their fanatical
mullahs and Imams into committing heinous acts against
Africa and the rest of the world."
- GHANA: "The reason why I am
informing you this friendly letter is that since I stated
reading the scripture that you gave to me I see that God
has using his miracle in me. I have read it 30 time and
give some to my friends to read. They all are happy that
God has using his miracle in them. I have got wisdom
since you gave me the scripture."

most great living word, profound and precious Holy Bible,
and thank the Lord Jesus Christ that he answers our

Thanks of God Almighty our Saviour, Lord
Jesus Christ, your priceless gift reached my family
