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, 1 million people now have their own Bible. Despite almost sixty years of communist rule in Cuba, the church is experiencing amazing growth. However, a shortage of Bibles was, and still is, a problem.

Our supporters, along with others around the fellowship, helped fund the provision of those desperately needed 1 million Bibles. This means that just under 10% of the population now have their own Bible.

Please continue to pray for this project in 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.
