There are many ways to help our Chinese brothers and sisters in Christ. There is a very real need for bibles in China and Voice of the Martyrs could use your help. If you have a few extra dollars each month and the time to send bibles to China from your own home, there is information available for you here:
Voice of the Martyrs Bibles Unbound Program
"You'd think that 30,000 Bibles would quench the thirst for God's Word in China.
""It just barely scratches the need," says Barry Werner with Bibles for China. "There are 35,000 people coming to Christ each day; about 50% of those [are] in the remote, rural areas where we go.
""30,000 Bibles basically was 2 days' worth of converts in rural China."
"Leading a team of four, Werner traveled recently to remote areas of China, armed with a simple task: to verify that 30,000 Bibles, purchased in China with donated funds, reached the hands of rural Chinese believers.
""Verification we could do with a stone face," says Werner. "But when you get in amongst the people and hand a Bible to a person that has never had one, that's where the emotional part is a little bit overwhelming at times."
"This was par for the course, but something else made the October trip a little different than the others.
""Normally we go in and we don't even see a government official, unless there's some problem with a permit or some sort of visa problem," explains Werner. But with national leadership changing on November 15, he says a government official was assigned to accompany their team to every church they visited.
""That really put a different spin on our whole trip.... We had a government official with us at every meal and at every church we went to."
"Werner and his team planned to speak for 5 minutes at each congregation they visited. He says the presence of government officials made them second-guess the words they would use, but in the end, they decided to speak exactly what God had laid upon their hearts.""
