Raising the dead? Sometimes it can come as a surprise to us Western Christians when we hear of our brothers and sisters abroad who, quite literally and in every sense of the word, take God for Who He says He Is and trust in His Word with fearless abandon.
Below are just a few of the many testimonies we receive about lives being impacted and transformed by the Strategic Bibles Ministry of Heaven’s Family.
Imagine having a faith so strong that you continue to serve Jesus with just the basic understanding you learned of Him during your salvation experience—despite persecution, not having a Bible, or being able to regularly fellowship with other believers!
I want to take this opportunity to share with you the diligence of one of our national missionaries who's working hard to reach others with the gifts received by the Strategic Bibles Ministry. Towards the end of last year, I received this incredible praise report from Timothy Rai, our faithful brother in Christ who serves as a missionary in Nepal.
The Strategic Bibles Ministry is committed to enabling discipleship in the poorest areas of the world. East Africa, for one, has many Christians who have never owned their own Bibles and, although it may only cost around $8, it is a luxury many families are unable to afford when they're struggling to pay for food, shelter and an education for their children. So when a new Christian in East Africa receives his or her very own Bible for the first time, this seemingly simple gift is actually an enormous blessing to a believer who previously had little to no access to the Word of God.
