We need Bibles For Manila
As many of you know for the last 10 years, Bible Senders has supported ministries throughout SE Asia and the Philippines. One of the ministries we support MYM (Mercy Yerga Ministries) goes to the Philippines, Ethiopia and Dubai on a yearly basis. Each year we give them 3,000 – 5,000 bibles to take to give out for free.
The bibles we send for this particular mission are soft leather bound Study Bibles designated specifically for traveling Pastors so they can teach the Word. These Pastors have traveling ministries throughout the more than 7,000 islands in the Philippines. Typically we send NKJ and NIV as they are the easiest for the Pastors to read and teach from.
The average annual family income in the Philippines is around $10,049 (US) /year. That’s roughly $837 /month. The study bibles we send would cost the Pastors between $39 – $45 (US) so not many can afford them.
Bibles For Manila
Over the years the ministry to the Philippines has grown substantially. Every year this missions group goes out, they focus on a different province. The provinces of Iloilo, Guimaras and Manila are the main focus. However, this year the requests for bibles for Manila are much higher than anticipated and we need your help to meet that need.
