UC Merced

The church in Merced had a BfA table on the UC Merced campus last Wednesday. We got 21 appointments with students to have Bible studies with them on campus. Please pray that they all will show up at the appointed time and enjoy the Lord with us in His word.

Bibles for America

Since 2000, BfA has given away more than 2 million Bibles and ministry books. Each month over 4,500 Bibles and 10,000 books are sent to people all over the country. Forty-four percent of recipients are interested in further contact. Many have been gained for the Lord’s recovery and are enjoying the church life today.
Through the years, Bibles for America has endeavored to carry out its mission with a learning spirit and in coordination with the churches in the Lord’s recovery. What we have learned related to distributing the Recovery Version and ministry books and also following up with recipients, is for the spread of the Lord’s work in His recovery, and ultimately for the building up of His Body. From giving away Bibles in person to providing online tools and resources, BfA is striving to use every proper means to feed the spiritually hungry, both saved and unsaved.

Europe

Please pray for the contact with the students, especially the first-year students, at the universities in Europe in September, before classes begin in October.
