United States

“Indeed days are coming, declares the Lord Jehovah, When I will send a hunger into the land, not a hunger for bread nor a thirst for water, but for hearing the words of Jehovah.” Amos 8:11
Lord, fill the homes, neighborhoods, schools, universities, workplaces, and shopping centers of the United States with a hunger for Your words.

Bibles for America

BfA has developed a series of videos to encourage recipients to get into the Basic Elements of the Christian Life series. Each video features discussion on a particular section of one chapter and invites the viewer to read more. Videos are currently available and more will be released every Monday for the next nine weeks. You may watch the Basic Elements of the Christian Life videos at http://www.youtube.com/bibles4america.
Please pray that:

  • Many Bible and book recipients would watch the videos and receive help from the brothers’ speaking.
  • News about the videos would spread through social media, e-mail, and word-of-mouth.

Bibles for America – Korean Section

After much prayer and fellowship with the Korean language co-workers, we feel the Lord is leading us to reach out to the Korean-speaking people in the United States. 1.7 to 2.1 million Korean-Americans live here; up to 80 percent of these identify themselves as Christians. About 4,000 Korean Christian groups exist in the U.S. These statistics testify to the Lord’s saving grace towards the Korean people.
Among these Christians, we believe a good number of pure-hearted seekers are not satisfied with what they have. As stewards, we are indebted to the Lord to dispense the spiritual food at the appointed time. The rich ministry of this age is meant for all of God’s children, who are our dear brothers and sisters in Christ. We invite you to participate in this great endeavor by your prayers, your financial contribution, and your active involvement in giving away our materials and caring for those who want further contact.

Contacting Bible Recipients in the United Kingdom

Sixty thousand recipients of New Testaments or other literature in the United Kingdom want contact. Pray for a rich supply to all in the church in London to shepherd these people.
