Shipment of Bibles Makes it Through Customs Amidst Many Challenges…
As the Economic Situation Deteriorates in Places like Venezuela, the Spiritual Revival Continues to Intensify.
We are all delighted to be able to place highly sought-after books and Bibles into the hands of those who are desperately seeking God with all their hearts. Operations to put literature and other materials into challenging places are ongoing in multiple countries.
Some of us have had some very close calls lately. However, we continue to distribute the Word of God by air, land, and sea. The enemy, however, has not been able to stop us even though sometimes things can slow down. Pray that we will continue to have favor as we move through the open doors that have been set before us to overcome evil with good. Ground (or hearts) that used to be hard has been plowed up in many places making it easier to plant the Gospel.
Bibles are a Wise Investment Now Because Prosperity and Plenty May Not Last Much Longer
It seems that the present time of prosperity and plenty regarding the things of this world may not last very much longer in many countries around the globe. The long-term financial impact of Covid combined with other factors may be devastating in an economic sense. However, they can also be used by God to bring people to their knees seeking him. All of us must use our time and resources to make wise investments in eternal treasure while we are able.
Nevertheless, we have experienced time and time again that even amid chaos and violence and extreme need in the world around us, God can continue to bless and prosper his people in all things that pertain to life and godliness (2 Peter 1:3).
3 His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence,4 by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world because of sinful desire.
1 Peter 1:3-4
Thanking the Lord for His Provision of Bibles, Finances, and More
We continue to thank the Lord for providing above and beyond all we can ask or think for wisdom and understanding and protection and friends and hospitality and open doors for ministry.
This current year (2021) is shaping up to be our best year ever. Still, there is so much more work to be done.
Please Continue to Pray as We Distribute More Bibles
Finally, pray for safety and wisdom for those distributing Bibles on the border. Pray that the Word of God would continue to advance mightily (Acts 6:7).
