VIDEO CLIP: Handing out boxes of Bibles to Believers and Leaders in the church. The service was a festive one as you can imagine.
Walking through village after village ... the same cry awaits me behind every tree. A family ... a church .... a community crying for the privileged of owning a Bible. I know of pastors after studying at a seminary just to return without a Bible as the seminary has to use the Bible for other students the following year. That meant a lot of memorization but that still meant pastors and church members are robbed of God's Word.
You can only truly understand the joy of seeing someone receiving a Bible for the first time. It is awesome and very humbling. I have been called many names trying to get Bibles to men and women in Africa and most say that is simply impractical to help everyone with a Bible. The truth is: We don't need to help everyone! That is never the mandate. It is rather: DO TO ONE THAT YOU WISH YOU COULD DO FOR EVERYONE. Then it matters! Then we make a difference.
SUPER SUPER SUPER thank you's to everyone who contributed and helped us to share the WORD of GOD to those hungry leaders and communities who have been praying for soooo long. It left a legacy in the hearts of so many men, women and children.
Here is a few moments in color:
