We really need these books for different assignments as well as ministries. When I have an access of a camera, I will take a photo and send you our 8 students and 6 teachers who are benefiting from your support of books. I am a study center coordinator. I also teach orphaned and less privilaged children the word of God in secondary and primary schools. We pay them school fees and give them basic needs for their studies.

Eastern DRC, just over the border from Bujumbura, Burundi
This Bible is of tremendous blessing to me for my spiritual life and to spread the gospel to other places. This Bible has attracted many to Christ- there is even an orphanage home where the pastor lack Bible and so we worked with this orphanage called Hope Children’s Centre where this Pastor had to make use of my Bible in teaching the people who gathered together to worship Christ. This Bible helps spread the GOODNEWS in this Orphanage home. While in this Christian Orphanage Home l spent time with some grown up kids teaching them the word of God from my this Bible! They were so much fun and exciting as we study many portions from the Bible like the Story of the GOOD….This Bible has yielded glorious fruits in this Orphanage Home as those who gathered around the pastor preaching and teaching from this Bible were so Blessed. l have since returned home with my Bible and l study it each day and night. My experiences at the orphanage home makes me to reflect on Matt. 25:35.
We pray that you will join us in our efforts! “For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me,…
Please pray for this orphanage home and the pastor and l thank my brother very much for this Bible.
This comment is from a lady who wrote asking for a Bible. I was not sure that her request was genuine, so I asked a brother to whom we send books to make contact with her because he lived in the same area of Nigeria. He confirmed that she was definitely a believer, We had a lovely new Bible which we sent her.
Second Hand Books
We are grateful to the Lord for gifts of large numbers of excellent second hand books. The result of this is that we have been able to send to parts of Asia and Africa hundreds of these books in the last three months with many more waiting to be posted. The majority of the pastors who receive these books are men who are involved in training other pastors. This is done either at a Bible college or among the pastors in the area where they live. Here are a number of responses to the books we have sent. These will also show the desperate need and hunger for more.
From a pastor in Uganda
I have received the second box of 10 truly useful Books, The content in each of them is truly relevant to my teaching ministry as a preparatory material and also reading materials for the students. I can’t appreciate enough the value of two little volumes – “A Sure Guide to Heaven” and “Life in Christ” to my new converts class in Soroti. Just spot reading into Exposition of Genesis 1 &2, unveils the treasures of well research, devotional and thorough exegetical material of Genesis – it unveils the hidden treasures of the living gospel from the very start of the OT pointing to Christ. “Lets study Revelation” – just a quick look into it reveals that it is a very helpful to understanding Revelation.
From a pastor in Yangon, Myanmar.
Thank you so much for your previous shipments of books for my pastoral ministry in Myanmar. We want to develop more of our church’s library and it really needs more books. Can you kindly help me with more books for the use of our church members. I ask your help. English is so persuasive also in our mission work and evangelism that young people are interested to learn English and by teaching them of English we can present the Gospel of Christ and the love of God. We are in a process of developing our church library in this year. and I would like to request and challenge you to participate in sending more books and prayer. This is truly building the church grow and my congregations are so much blessed by your books too.
From a pastor in Kinshasa in DR Congo (he has received some French books as well).
Would you please send another books and another lesson for Church History to me as you had been mentioned before in last year 2013. Pastors from my community are very grateful and blessed to read and to share the wonderful messages and sound dotrine in my community indeed. Surely the books has been helpful and usable in all churches in my community indeed. Please don’t forget the new pastors by helping them material for better preaching indeed.
From a pastor in Northern India.
We are very happy and thankful to receive the treasure of 14 books in mail yesterday. We are assured in Spirit that these resources sent by you time to time are very helpful in our teaching and preaching ministry on a large scale since Lord showed this year we were connected to more pastors of rural who serve in interior parts of India and thus body of Christ is growing in thousands in this whole north India region with new believers.
Finally from a pastor in Kenya.
Thank you so much for the books i have been receiving from you. It has been of great help to my student pastors. In this regard, my students take time reading the six volumes of Acts by Lloyd-Jones when they were doing their studies on the book of Acts. These books are of great help to us here in Kenya. If possible, you can send me books on Systematic theology, church history, preaching, communication, Christian ethics and Bible interpretation. Feel free to send me any books you find necessary.
We trust that these encouraging responses will stir you to pray for this aspect of our ministry. Pray for the Lord to speak through every book that we distribute. Pray too for the safety of the books in the postal system.
