The Lord continues to bless the Bible
ministry. Month after month, Bibles and portions flow out.
The web site receives thousands of hits and "tons" of
information and files flow. Dozens of emails come in from around
the world. One doctor in Great Britain sent a contribution with
the statement: "Let me say again that I really do share in
your desire to make God known to others. May God be with
you." The encouragement is greatly appreciated. One lady in
South Dakota wrote that she had another 50 Bibles ready to mail
What a blessing. One lady provided the
funds to purchase a batch of Picture Bibles (comic book style)
from International Bible Society and then placed them in doctors
offices. One contact in Malawi said they take the Scripture to
"homes, hospitals, prisons, schools, markets, small
churches, bus stations, railways stations, and an open air
meetings just to mention few." Bible Foundation relies
heavily on donated storage and freight services. Please pray with
us about transportation needs in Texas.
From the mail bag:
- GHANA: "Please, the reason why
I am writing to you is that I am seamstress and I have
opened my shop on 14th November 1997. All of my machines
has been stolen and I decided to kill myself because of
stolen of my equipment. But I read one of your pamphlet
and immediately I finished reading, I took God as my
personal saviour. That is why I am still living."
- ZIMBABWE: "Devaluation of
Zimbabwen currency is making a price of Bibles almost
beond the reach of people."
- MALAWI: "What a wonderful
blessing it is to see many friends turned from darkness
to light, accepting Jesus as their only saviour and lord.
The scriptural leaflets, books, and Bibles are weapons
and they are putting out the burning arrows shot by the
- ROMANIA: "I am learning
English. The Bible would be a good way. Because, here in
Romania, it is not possible to buy a good one, I am
asking you for one."
- GHANA: "One time I attacked
someone and collected his gold and later destroyed him. I
was arrested... now I am in jail for 36 years. But
through the help of your tracts which has reached me by
my blockmaster, now I know that there is a God which I
have to serve and now my life is changed."
- MALAWI: "Thank you very much
for the work of love sending Bibles, New Testaments and
gospel tracts for free distribution to the needy. Indeed,
you have helped us through the whole year 1997. We have
been seen in many areas of life like in lunch hour
meetings, open air meetings in villages, in schools, in
colleges, in secondary schools. Our reports shows that
1,107 people have accepted Jesus Christ as the result of
your literature. Would you also be with us this
- UGANDA: "Thank you... Your
ministry (Bible Foundation) is doing an excellent work.
Keep on! There is great demand for Bibles here."
- ZAMBIA: "We send our love to
you and to thank you most sincerely for the good work you
are doing to mobilise God's own creation and plunder
- TRINIDAD & TOBAGO: "Thank
you so much. Thoughtful, kind and caring are just a few
words to describe you. People like you make life a
wonderful treasure. Thank you so much for all that you've
done, it really meant a lot. Words will never be able to
express the depth of appreciation this brings today. ...
There is a great need for Bibles. The shipment you sent
to us went like hot bread from a bakery."
- GHANA: "With gratitude to the
Lord, our Saviour, I express my sincere thanks and
appreciation for the way you have been regularly sending
the Bibles to us for the past months. These Bibles have
been very well received. It is wonderful the impact it
has created in the lives of our new converts and we are
tremendously blessed. Because recently a Christian
village that we established among the mix Islamic
religious set was destroy by rampaging Muslims, and those
that were able to flee has come out without even a
leaflet of the Holy word of God. Sooner than this
problems do your Bibles arrived though it could not meet
the number of the people it has serve a purpose. God
richly bless you."
- TOGO: "I have already share
Bibles and some to unbelievers. Thank God that they are
reading their Bible and believe to the word of God, and
now they are participating to the work of God."
- MALAWI: "Would you kindly send
me as many Bibles as you can. Not for the college but to
the Christians who lost their properties with the
flooding water which washed away their houses, herds,
clothes, Bibles, hymns, etc."
- GHANA: "I'm still distributing
the tracts and the demand for it is still growing. The
avenues cannot remain closed in Jesus mighty name. By
God's grace our church is increasing in souls and the
members are increasing in the knowledge of God. The
backslidden and the lost are finding their way back to
Jesus. I would therefore plead with you not to stop
sending the Bibles and tracts as you are doing. It is
really blessing people and advancing God's kingdom."
- ETHIOPIA: "You see so many
people need the English Bible and they are asking me.
Even those who are not Christian will ask for the Bible,
but I give priority for those born-again
- MALAWI: "This letter is to
thank you for your Bibles and tracts, which you sent for
us. We know your Bibles and tracts will help us as we
evangelize and God will cause our united efforts to bring
forth fruit. I am deeply grateful for all you have done
to help in my spiritual growth, so I am able to serve our
God and help others. My prayer is that the Lord will
continue bless you so we can continue receiving the
literature to help us win souls to our Lord."
