Christians in many countries can’t own a Bible – their governments won’t let them. But you can send – or even personally deliver – Bibles to those in need. It’s not that hard. C’mon, someone is waiting for you to act today.

  1. Mr. Gow,
    Speaking from my own humble experiences there is nothing like going and getting a view from the ground. where there is a will(to be in His) there is a way(which He will provide) and you will never regret the day you stepped out of the boat.

  2. Dennis, with regard to act, Episcopal Relief and Development fund is one of the best nonprofits in the country in terms of delivering care regularly and in crises. Highly regarded for it integrity, management, % of dollars to care vs. administration. When you give it gets to people. Period.

  3. Any trips scheduled to Gaza ?
