Our busy start to 2021 continues! Over 10 million Scriptures will have been shipped since our spring update to 8 more countries (Tanzania, Honduras, Guatemala, Pakistan, Brazil, Norway, South Africa, and Zimbabwe) by the end of July. We are on track to surpass our goal of Proclaiming the ONE in ’21 nations on all continents. The Lord is opening the door in Venezuela wider, as we continue to help provide the Word of God. We are preparing for a third shipment to help 5 new churches in that needy country. Look inside for some more details on our projects in North America and Asia. We are gearing up for our Bibles 4 Brazil trip in September (finally, a mission trip!) and have 25 team members signed up. There is still room for you if you want to join us.
Please pray that the Lord would mightily use the 12.5 million Scriptures shipped to 16 countries around the world so far in 2021. Pray specifcally for:
• The safe and speedy delivery of shipments.
• Open doors for our mission trips to resume.
• Souls to be saved, converts strengthened, and churches established.
Thank you for partnering with us to get the Word of God to a lost and dying world through your prayers and fnancial support!
It has been a busy spring/summer for our family. Ministry wise, there have been many Scriptures assembled, shipped, and distributed. We were excited to coordinate a Scripture assembly of 10,000 John and Romans with my home church in Adrian, Michigan. These Scriptures were then bagged in door hangers with additional items and ready to distribute.
We helped our daughter move to northern Michigan for the summer, and our two other children are both doing well. Our fall/winter schedule is filling up! If you’d like us to visit your church, please feel free to contact us. Thank you for the prayers, faith, love, and support you have shown to us over the years.

Proclaiming the ONE in North America!
We helped ship 10,000 Miskito Bibles to Honduras for the Trask missionary family. Following is an exciting excerpt from their recent prayer letter: Proclaiming the ONE in North America!
“A person has to come to one of our services. After the service they can give their name to receive a ticket. After getting their ticket, they have to come back to another service, and during that service, they will receive their Bible. The goal is to be able to preach to them twice while we can. During the month of April, our Sunday services have increased to between 100 to 120 people, where our normal average was 50 and 60 people. There have been folks from as far away as the village of Yamanta at the far end of the island, who came in the night before and slept in a house with friends or family so they could come and be here for the service and get their ticket. Then they did it again to get the Bible. Many have walked two and three hours to get here, leaving their house before daylight to get here for the 6:00 a.m. service. We have a plan of salvation in the Miskito language that we are gluing to the front flyleaf of each Bible. Also, when we give out Bibles, we have the folks stand up on the platform, and with all of the recipients for that day, we have a dedication prayer for them as a group. Of all the things that excite us about having these Bibles to give out, I think the two greatest things to me are these. First, after they get their Bible and go back to their seat, they are looking and opening their Bibles with a smile on their face, and that is when when the preaching starts and they get to open it for the first time to try and fnd a passage of Scripture. It is so great to see them fnally find their place and read with their own eyes, for the frst time, in their own Bible, in their own language, the Word of God. Second, I am even more excited to see folks walking up the path coming to church, and they have their Bible with them bringing it to church. That has been something that has been non-existent here before now. “Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” If they are going to get saved, the Word of God has to be revealed to them by the Holy Spirit, and He can use us to give them the Word, or just by the reading of it, He can show them their need of salvation. We are anxiously looking for the Spirit’s work to be evidenced and to see folks coming to be saved.”
Trinidad and Tobago
We are preparing to ship 250,000 Gospel tracts to Trinidad from Bible Tracts Inc. for the Hoffmeister missionary family, along with some Bibles and New Testaments as well. Please pray that many souls will be saved through this endeavor.
Proclaiming the ONE in Asia!
1. We partnered with Fellowship Tract League and Bible Tracts Inc. to ship a container with 10 million Urdu Gospel tracts to Pakistan. Please pray for many souls to be saved through these Gospel tracts in the very needy country of Pakistan!
2. We are working with BPS in Winona Lake, Indiana, on a container of Telegu Scriptures for India. Please pray for open doors to be able to ship it later this year.
3. While we have canceled our trip to Tokyo for the Olympics, we have shipped Japanese Scriptures to Japan to be used by missionaries and national pastors for evangelization during and after the Olympics.
