Thank you for the Bible. I’ve only used it for a short time but I have gained greater understanding by reading the commentary. –Ali, Southaven, Mississippi

Giving Away
Bibles & Books

70,000 Bibles given away

105,000 books given away

In January and February, gospel teams and local volunteers in 20 cities throughout the United States and Canada gave away more than 10,000 copies of the New Testament Recovery Version and ministry books, as well as 11,000 gospel tracts and brochures. This was part of the ongoing effort to spread the gospel and propagate the truth throughout North America.

In May, volunteers set up BfA tables in both small towns and large cities throughout Minnesota and Wisconsin on college campuses, at stores, and at a coffee shop across the street from Mayo Clinic. Over 250 people received a free Bible and several prayed to receive the Lord.

In June, volunteers in Cincinnati, Ohio went to various neighborhoods, parks, the downtown area, a YMCA, a Walmart, and a minor league soccer game, and gave away 1,000 copies of the New Testament Recovery Version and 2,000 brochures offering the free Bible.

I would like to thank you so much for giving an amazing opportunity to those like me. You see, I’m not very book smart, never really have been, and I have struggled with learning God’s words. I am so very excited about learning to love the Word of God. –Jody, Hermitage, Missouri
