250,000 bibles needed for the new believers in South Asia. Can your church help?
At India Gospel League, we are striving to put God's Word into the hands of new believers in South Asia. At the present time, we estimate only three percent of believers in South Asia have their own copy of God’s Word. So this spring we are making a special effort so they too can enjoy the privilege of knowing God more deeply. A Bible in their own language will allow them to study and meditate on the words of Jesus, read the letters of Paul, draw lessons from the history of God’s people, share wisdom from the Proverbs with their children and pray along with the Psalmists. Most importantly, we want to help new believers build a firm foundation in their faith in Jesus Christ so that they are able to stand against the schemes of the enemy who wants them to fall back into their old, deeply rooted, superstitious practices. In the Lord they can be victorious, but to do so, God’s Word will need to become engraved on their hearts!
Our goal is to place a Bible into the hands of every new believer this year! In 2017, 134,000 people were newly baptized. We'd like to make each one of these new believers and the estimated 110,000 believers who will get baptized this year will have the opportunity to own their very own copy of God's Word. It’s exciting to imagine how one copy will impact not only that individual, but his or her family and perhaps an entire community! Would you like to share God’s Word – literally – with a villager on the other side of the world?
