Persecuted Christians are begging for Bibles

Give the comfort of God’s Word 

Many Christians around the world face violence and intimidation simply because they believe in Jesus. Some are even thrown in jail or killed. But despite the risks, these brave men and women are hungry to learn about God. That’s why they’re begging for Bibles!

They need God’s Word to grow in their faith and help them stand strong when persecution comes. Unfortunately, many of these believers also live in “Bible deserts” — places where Bibles are illegal or scarce. 

Your $10 will send one Bible to a persecuted believer. And since Christians tend to share their Bibles with trusted family and friends, your impact will multiply.
