Bibles For the World

Bibles For The World – Online Event, this Monday May 3rd at 8pm

“And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.” Mark 16:15

Representatives from The Gideons International in Australia across the Eastern suburbs of Victoria, including NewHope’s David Wood, are hosting an online Bibles For The World fundraising event on Monday, 3rd May, streaming from our very own facilities.

Hear from our local members who volunteered to go to Costa Rica/El Salvador, Philippines and Nigeria to distribute the Word of God, and the people who came to Christ after receiving a Bible. Bibles For The World funds the purchase of scripture for distribution by our fellow Gideons in countries that do not have the financial resources to purchase the numbers of scriptures required. Gideon members cover the cost of the administration of The Gideons International in Australia (TGIA) ministry around the world. As Gideons participating in Scripture distributions both here and internationally cover their own cost of travel, accommodation and meals, 100% of funds received at *Bibles For The World* functions are used exclusively for the purchase and delivery of Scriptures internationally – areas of the world who receive these funds are blessed by your generosity.

This year’s event will be live streamed from NewHope Baptist Church via YouTube at 8pm, Monday 3rd May 2021 (recording will be available to view thereafter)
