September Mission of the Month:
The Gideons International is an Association of Christian business and professional men and their wives dedicated to telling people about Jesus through sharing personally and by providing Bibles and New Testaments. While they are known worldwide for their work with hotels, they predominantly share Scriptures in schools and colleges, prisons and jails, hospitals, and medical offices.
Nearly half of the world’s population lives on less than $2 per day. For these people, purchasing a Bible or a New Testament would be impossible. With the help of the Gideons, these people receive a copy of God’s Word in their language, at no charge.
Distributing copies of God’s Word allows people to read the truth of God’s love for themselves. It also provides a continuing witness after the Gideon leaves and makes it possible for people to grow in their faith.
To date, the Gideons have placed 1.9 billion Scriptures and are on their way to 2 billion with your support. Follow them on that journey as The Gideons partner with churches anywhere, to reach the unreached everywhere.
