Our Mission – Bibles for China

fd5029decf579ff0092b9c927ca89498

By Bibles for China

Bibles for China’s mission is to provide God’s Word (The Bible), free of charge, to Christians living in remote economically depressed areas of rural mainland China.

Many people living in rural China already know the love of God, but for most families, their hard earned income barely covers basic needs. Because of remote location and lack of monetary resources, they simply do not have access to Bibles. Their Bible reading is restricted to pages they have copied, passages they have memorized or tattered Bibles shared among the village.

  “Life Changing”

By Wendell Rovenstine via Bibles for China

Your prayers and gifts matter, thank you. Because of your prayers and generous financial support Bibles for China teams placed 44,000 Bibles last May.

One member of the Generation Y team (team members age 35 and younger) said the trip could be summed up in two words – “Life Changing”. It is difficult for us in the West to imagine the emotions that grip a Christian when they receive their very first copy of the Bible. With some believers their emotions create an ear to ear smile, with others there is tears, and some are simply awestruck.

Experiencing China: Witnessing God

By David Holbrook – Bibles for China

It’s Sunday, October 27th, and my nerves are going crazy. I’m anxious, nervous, excited, worried, eager, stressed. To put it lightly, I’m a mess. A friend sees this, and approaches me, asking me to come with him to pray. The words that he spoke rang true throughout the trip… Be still, the God that is here is the same God in China. The

God that has called you to this trip is the same God that is preparing the hearts of the thousands of believers that you will meet during this trip. You are not taking God to China, He’s taking you. Boy was he right!

– The following letter was written just weeks before the team headed out to where they are right now.. distributing Bibles in rural China.  Be watching for further updates from their amazing trip and outreach.

Dear Friend,

I pray that you are doing well! Can you feel the excitement?! We are so close to our May distribution trip! Like the journeys of others in the past, this distribution has the potential to expose thousands and thousands of souls to God’s Word, truth and love. Our fellow Christians traveling to China will experience incredible things. They will meet men and women who have been praying for years for their arrival so that they can receive their first Bible.

Changed by a Christ-Centered China

by  Bob Drew – Bibles for China

In the past, I could never, for the life of me, understand why someone would ever want to go on a mission trip.  I always considered missions as a sort of cop out for obtaining a “spiritual high”.  It seemed like an excuse just to travel while feeling good about yourself.  I always thought, “We have hungry people in our own back yards.  Why do we need to go around the world to help other people?”  I know that all sounds harsh (and I was extremely ignorant), but I just didn’t get it.

Then one day in October of 2012, a good friend of mine suggested something to me that sounded crazy.  See, I went to see him to share some things I was struggling with.  We talked about the struggles I had with pride, lust, discontentment, anger and a litany of other sin areas….

Please continue to pray for and support their

Bible for Bible Match!!

In 2014, Bibles for China’s “in-country” partners are offering a Bible for Bible match on the first 20,000 Bibles.  

Let’s join their efforts as this doubles the impact of each $5 gift and provides two Bibles for rural China>>>

 

is committed to legally purchasing and distributing Bibles at no cost to rural Christians in China.

Committed to the extraordinary opportunity of distributing Bibles in China. Our goal is 100,000 Bibles to be delivered this year.

Thousands of rural Chinese Christians need Bibles. Bibles for China is committed to getting those Bibles into the hands of these believers at no cost to them.

Within two decades, the Chinese Church will grow to over 400 million believers, and China will become the largest Christian nation in the world! Yet, one thing is lacking.. Bibles.

World Prayr has chosen to be different, starting with teaching others that the pilgrimage all those who have been brought near to God are on is not one about our focusing on what we are doing, or focusing on our sin or anything we are not doing, but focusing on what Christ did in order for us to know transforming grace. We refer to this message as the gospel of grace. We then live this out as a ministry by serving others through counseling, prayer, and sound biblical teachings.

We also differ from most ministries in another key area, working to live out the message of Philippians 2:4 by aggressively promoting other ministries and churches. As a mission team, World Prayr is working to serve those who are disconnected to reconnect them, one soul at a time, to local bodies of believers.

We refer to our team as an “Ohana” made up of many nationalities spread across the globe and within the Protestant faith.
