The 1000 Bibles Project

“There is only one book which contains all the human wisdom, enlightened by all the divine wisdom, one book which the veneration of peoples call The Book: “The Bible”. Sow the villages with the Gospels. One Bible per cabin!”
Victor Hugo, fame French writer of Les Misérables and The Hunchback of Notre-Dame

For the purpose of our ministry in Amiens, France, we created a website ( New Building presenting the Bible to the French people and offering them to freely receive a Bible and some Christian literature. This was initially set up as an evangelistic tool for our area.

However, at the beginning of 2019, requests suddenly picked up, and we have shipped over 50 Bibles to people across the country! Some of them also requested a pastoral visit, and we were able to put them in contact with a pastor in their area.

We thank God for the given opportunity of sharing His Word, but also to help other ministries as well. Though we would love to flood each house with a Bible, as Victor Hugo suggested, our goal is to purchase 1000 Bibles before the end of the year in order to answer these requests for a while. New BuildingWe have found some Bibles that can be bought in bulk with a discount, thus bringing the price to $4000 for 1000 Bibles.

We ask you to prayerfully consider helping us with this project. If funds come in excess of our need, we will redirect those funds to a similar project.
