I’m so excited to share with you all a project that I think is pretty amazing. I’ve had the real pleasure of knowing Dr. Bob and Sheila Doom for over 20 years. they recently shared with me a project on which they ( as part of the Russian Bible Society) have been working. A project to reach the majority of countries and states in and around Russia.
Reaching Russian Children!
This project really caught my heart for a few reasons: 1) Eastern European and formerly communist elementary schools are now MORE open to Christian influence than the U.S. 2) These picture books are a beautiful and amazing way to reach children with the simply truths about Jesus. I know from experience that children always love books. Many of the children in these countries don’t even own one book. Just think how wonderful that would be for someone to give you your first book!
Russian Picture Bibles on their Way!
You see, these books are to be readily distributed through the local schools, amazing right? This project is ongoing, however, a first shipment was sent the beginning of March. In Fact, there were 35,000 copies going to Latvia, 9,000 to the Republic of Georgia, and 6,000 to Romania. This is an amazing beginning.
I gave to this project, and hope to give more soon. In fact, a little goes a long way because $20 will buy 8 1/2 copies of this beautifully illustrated HARD BACK book!
If you are interested in giving to this project, you may contact NETA COX via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
