Blood of The Lamb

Blood of the Lamb

Blood of the Lamb

Words by Woody Guthrie

Are your garments all spotless?
Are they white as the snow?
Are you washed in the blood of the lamb?
Is your soul all spotless?
Is it clean as the snow?
Are you washed in the blood of the lamb?

I am washed, yes I’m washed
I am washed in the blood
I’m all washed in the blood of the lamb
I’m all clean I’m all spotless
I’m pure like the snows
I’m all washed in the blood of the lamb

Have you laid down your burdens?
Have you found peace and rest?
Are you washed in the blood of the lamb?
I’ve laid down all my troubles
I’ve found peace and rest
I’m all washed in the blood of the lamb

Have you learnt to love your neighbors?
Of all colors, creeds and kinds?
Are you washed in the blood of the lamb?
I’ve learnt to love my peoples
Of all colors, creeds and kinds
I’m all washed in that blood of that lamb

What Must I Do To Be Saved

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16).  If that is not plain and simple answer to What Must I Do To Be Saved, here are a few more quotes.

What Must I Do To Be Saved

The apostle Paul was asked this same question (Acts 16:30-31) and his answer was “believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved.”  If you believe that Jesus Christ paid the penalty for your sins, then you are saved!

“And you also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in him with a seal,the promised Holy Spirit,” (Ephesians 1:13).

Is there any other way?  Good question…”Jesus said to him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes to the Father, but by me” (John 14:6).

NOTHING ELSE is required.

This is probably the easiest thing to do.  We are the ones that make it hard.

Bible Senders – India

Spreading the Good News in India

Bible Senders – India is another outreach we would like to expand. If I recall correctly, the first bible we sent to India was a few years back, sometime around 2014.  My daughter Jenna was doing our communications then and she received our first letter from India asking for a bible.  She sent 1 bible to 1 family.  Since receiving that one letter, we have received a fairly large volume of mail and emails asking for bibles for India.

I believe the cost was around $35 to send that one bible.  In about a month or so we received a letter back from the family telling us how they were so excited to have the only bible in the village and when they received it, the family gathered around the table, passed it around so they all could look, feel and smell it.  The Word had come into their home.  How awesome is that.

Below are photos of Pastor Babu from West Godavari District in Andhra Pradesh, India. Pastor Babu recently sent us a letter requesting help for his orphanage.  If anyone is planning a missions trip to India, Bible Senders – India would like to partner up with you and provide you bibles to take over.  With the rising costs of international shipping, this partnering program is the most cost-effective and efficient way to spread the Good News around the world.  There are over 1 billion people in India, all we need to do is reach a few so they can reach the many.

If you could help us with Bible Senders – India that would be awesome too. Contact Us

Bibles For Prisons

Bibles for Prisons Ministry

The amount of men and women incarcerated all over the world is staggering and has created a need for a Bibles For Prisons Ministry. Having been involved in various Prison Ministries, I can tell you first hand that the immediate and long-term support needed for this type of Prison Ministry is great.

Bible Senders is supported by a large number of individuals, bible study groups and churches who faithfully send us cases of Bibles each month.  However, these new paperback NIV and ESV Large Print bibles are specifically earmarked for the Bibles For Prisons Ministry.  Above is a photo of one of those shipments, a total of 364 bibles bound for a Florida Prison.  Below we are handing them off to Tony Patrino for delivery to his Florida prison ministry.

Tony has been heading up this prison ministry at the Pasco County Correctional Facility for the past 3 years.  The weekly bible studies at this prison facility are available to male and female inmates and are attended by approximately 30 – 60 inmates each week.  As part of this prison ministry, CCWC (Calvary Chapel Worship Center) holds a weekly gathering for those inmates who have been released and have decided to continue their Christian walk.

We would also like to give a shout out to the woman’s group that have been faithfully donating to the Bibles for Prisons Ministry.  What you ladies have done and the impact you are making is nothing less than life changing.  On behalf of Bible Senders, Tony and the prisoners, thank you all for these awesome donations.

If you would like to support the Bible For Prisons Ministry, please send new paperback NIV or ESV large print bibles to:

Large Print NIV & ESV Paperback Bibles

Large Print NIV Bibles

Incoming Bibles

I wanted to take a moment to thank all of you that have been sending us brand new Large Print NIV & ESV Paperback Bibles.  We have been inundated with requests for those specific bibles from the many prison ministries we support.
Additionally, over the last 5 years, we have been working with a small ministry to the Philippines.  Every year they go there and minister to over 300 pastors and their sheep as they travel from island to island.  Thanks to your generosity we have been able to supply the pastors with study bibles and their congregation with large print soft leather and paperback bibles. The soft leather and paperback are less expensive to ship then the study bibles.

Easy to Read – Easy to Understand

While the NIV is not considered the best translation it is the easiest to understand and the large print makes it easier for the older prisoners and those with a limited education.

 

Today almost everyone uses their iphone, ipad or some other electronic device to read their bibles. However, the need for the written word is as strong as ever especially for those who are not able to afford or use such an electronic device.  Please keep sending them as the need is massive.

Say A Little Prayer

say-a-little-prayer

Say a Little Prayer:

Despite an  economy that seems to be struggling for a lot of people, every morning the vast majority of us fall asleep at night in a safe and secure environment with an expectation that we will wake up to the same secure surroundings.  Such a peace is an incredible gift from GOD.  What we have and take for granted is so much more than the life many of our brothers and sisters share while living in war torn countries scattered around the world.

Everyday there are sisters being sold into slavery, brothers who are being forced to pick up arms against their own families, mothers being raped and fathers being beheaded.  All of this happens because they believe that Jesus is their Messiah.

All believers know the end of the story but not many of us think through the process and occurrences that may happen in our own lives along the road from now until then.

So, when you lay your head down tonight, please say a little prayer for those members of our family that don’t have it so good.  Pray that GOD rescues them, sets them free, gives them strength and encouragement to stand firm in the faith while they endure such a testing of their faith.

 Inbound Prison Bibles

GOD is working his miracles everyday!  Between work, kids, grand kids, prison ministry, Bible Senders and life in general, things have been crazy busy. Yet bibles keep going out. We have sent 400 of 1,000 to students in the Philippines and 500 of 1,500 to Land Of Lakes Prison. Thank you all for your donations and support, we would have done much less without them.  In addition we have continued to reach out to the personal requests for 1 & 2 bibles.

Cyprus

Sending Bibles To Cyprus    Map of Cyprus  A Special shout out to our friend Dave in Oakland, CA.  Dave and his weekly prayer group made it possible to send 48 bibles to the island country of Cyprus. Way to “Be the Church” Dave!  This is the first time we have sent bibles there and increases the number of total countries to 50 on 6 of the 7 continents.  We are still hoping for Antarctica any day now.  Can you imagine that we once had the dizzying expectation that we would eventually send out 10 bibles when we first started.  Needless to say God’s vision for all of our lives is much bigger than our own, lol.

 

Get Involved w Bible Senders

How you can get involved

Christianity is definitely a full contact sport and everyone is meant to be a player.  It doesn’t matter how old, young, rich, poor, smart or accomplished you are, the Kingdom has a place for you.  In addition to your faithful donations and support, we are in need of NIV large print bibles.  Every body can send one of those.  Getting involved doesn’t get much easier.

Why NIV & NIV Large Print you ask?

NIV are easier to understand and many of the prisoners are older and don’t see as well as they once did.  Large print makes reading more enjoyable when you can actually see the words.  If you would be so kind to send them to our PO Box, that would be great.

Donated Bibles

Donated Bibles We Received Donated Bibles for PrisonsDonated Bibles

We wanted to thank you all for the soft cover and paperback NIV (New International Version) donated bibles. Yesterday, we picked up close to 1000 bibles from our PO Box and as requested most of them were soft cover NIV. You guys rock!

Why Only Soft Cover

Many of the prisons we send to are medium to high incarceration facilities and hardcover bibles are not allowed. For this project, using soft cover only makes it easier on our 1 man shipping department (my back appreciates it).

This particular batch of NIV donated bibles is for a new project and will be going to a prison in Land O Lakes Florida. Our goal for Land O Lakes is 1,500 soft cover NIV bibles but we have a feeling that this may become another one of our on-going ministries.  So far we have shipped just under 400 to Land O Lakes.

Get Involved

In addition to the prison ministries we mentioned above we also sent your donated bibles to homeless shelters, women’s retreats, church outreach programs and other prison ministries.  Last month we also had over 5,000 single bible requests from people all over the world but we are far behind.  Our problem, we just don’t have enough good bibles for the amount of requests we get.  The most requested bible is large print NIV. You can buy new NIV soft cover bibles and ship them direct.

What Are Good Donated Bibles

Glad you asked. “Most” of the donated bibles we receive are usable. However, about 1/3 are not.

That’s a whole lot of useless effort.  It is a waste of time and resources on everybody’s part.  Yours for spending the time and money to send them. Ours for having to go to the PO Box, pick them up only to throw them in the garbage.  Sorry, but we do not have a special place or way to dispose of your unwanted bibles. Please don’t send them.

Donated Bibles – Rule Of Thumb

If you don’t want it, we probably don’t either. It is not called giving when you send someone your unwanted junk.  That is called “cleaning house”.  The bible clearly instructs us (Leviticus 22: 20-25) to give your best not your blemished offerings.  We are OK with “Gently” used bibles but not abused.
