Many things claim to be the gift that keeps on giving, but I don’t know of anything that fits the description better than giving a Bible to a person who can’t afford to get their own. In 2015 so far 3,350 Bibles have been purchased for those in India who want one but have no way of getting them. That is a lot of Bibles!
You can give an Indian Christin a fish (tell him something the Bible says) but it is so much better to equip him to fish for himself (give him his own Bible to read any time he wants). Being given a Bible may not be a big deal to us who have more than we could possibly use, but for those who never have owned a Bible it is a treasure beyond anything they (or us) could imagine.
Many thanks to those who have donated the funds for these Bibles. In addition, 200,000 gospel tracts have been purchased for pastors to distribute to those who aren’t believers. God is using these in a might way as many come to him and are baptized. New churches are forming as well. Lives, families and whole villages are changes because of the words on a simple piece of paper. What better gift can we give them than eternal life in Jesus?
All it takes is a few dollars, less than the average person spends on coffee each day. We here in the USA may not be able to communicate directly with Christians in India, but if we give them God’s Word they can feed on that for the rest of their lives – and al through eternity as well. It certainly is the gift that never stops giving!
Pray God would use these Bibles and tracts for the growth of His Kingdom in India. If God leads you to give send your donations to Christian Training Organization, 252 W. State St., Doylestown, PA 18901. You can donate through PayPal at http://india.christiantrainingonline.org/
Isaiah 55:11 so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
Suppose you never owned a copy of the Bible and only knew a few people who did. What difference would it make in your spiritual life to not have a Bible to open and read? Thank God for having copies of His Word available to you your whole life and pray for those who don’t have this privilege.
