This Bible Sunday, will you join the mission to help bring the Bible to every language?


Thank you for your support!

Since 1809 we have sought to put the Bible into people’s hands and hearts. For more than 200 years, we have helped to make a difference to countless lives the world over – but this has only been possible with your help.


In Cuba, you have helped distribute more than 750,000 Bibles. The distribution effort is part of the ‘One Million Bibles for Cuba’ campaign which has been running since 2013.


Please continue to pray for the project One Million Bibles for Cuba. Pray that those who long to have a Bible of their own will receive a copy, and that God’s Word will be read throughout the country.
