During 2023 GOOD NEWS for Everyone! had a special focus on raising funds to purchase Bibles for distribution in India, where God’s people are facing much persecution. To quote just one of many pastors who face beatings and imprisonment on a daily basis……“I have been beaten by the police and Hindu extremists, I am constantly persecuted, I have been in prison many times, and there is an arrest warrant out for my arrest, but I serve the Lord with joy. I was once attacked by a mob who wanted to kill me for preaching the Gospel, but I will not stop. The judge ordered me to stop but I cannot stop.”
With grateful thanks to the generosity of members, Friends, and churches £75,000 has been raised for the purchase and distribution of Bibles in India, copies of God’s Word that will be given to those who cannot afford to buy their own.
“But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.” 2 Corinthians 4:7-9
Please continue to pray for our Brothers and Sisters in India and that these Bibles will be used by the Lord to strengthen and encourage the believers in India and introduce many others to Jesus.
