MWB's 50th Anniversary 2010

 Mission Without Borders was established in 1960 at the height of the Cold War.  The Bible has always been at the centre of our work and so we when we thought about celebrating our 50th Anniversary in 2010, we wanted to do something that emphasised our Bible background.  We set ourselves a target: one million Bibles for Eastern Europe.  What better way for a bunch of former Bible Smugglers to celebrate?

It costs around R50 to supply a Bible and we are committed to meeting our target by the end of 2013.  So far we around three quarters of the way towards our target and we really want you to help us celebrate.  Will you pay for one or more Bibles?

 

Read some of the feedback we've received from some of our partners in our Jubilee Bible Project.

Jubilee ad"Although nowadays we have freedom of speech and the Word of God can be published and distributed freely, there are two major reasons why it remains out of reach to people. In smaller towns and villages, many people just do not have a place where they can buy a Bible or are unable to afford one. Local churches usually have tracks, copies of the Gospel of John or a limited quantity of New Testaments to distribute. This is the situation in our church, too. The free Bibles provided by Mission without Borders provide a unique opportunity to reach those who might be interested in the Word of God, but haven't had the chance to buy a Bible themselves. All the beneficiaries responded with surprise and were grateful for the gift. We are also thankful! God bless you!"  Borislav Georgiev, minister at Second Evangelical Baptist Church, Dupnitsa

Jubilee ad"As a partnering church of Mission Without Borders through the Community Centre Programme, we are able to provide a daily, warm lunch to people in need. This winter, we were happy to be able to participate and offer a more precious gift to people, which is the Word of God. In Sliven, we do not have a Christian bookshop and people who want to buy a Bible find it difficult. Therefore, this project is of great significance for evangelism in our area."  Pastor Yuri Valkov, Evangelical Baptist Church, Sliven

Jubilee ad"I would like to thank you sincerely for the Bibles you sent us. In 2 Corinthians 9:10 Paul says: "Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness." Indeed, the Bibles you supplied were good seed in our hands. Many people were reached with these wonderful editions of the Bible. We expect to see many souls coming to know Christ the Redeemer thanks to the seeds sown.                                           I wish to share a short testimony that brought great joy to my heart. The Lord is miraculous and we are only instruments in His hands. Job said of the Lord:"He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted." (Job 5:9)Among the great words that God spoke to Job out of the storm, starting in Job chapter 38, was:"Unleash the fury of your wrath, look at every proud man and bring him low, look at every proud man and humble him, crush the wicked where they stand." (Job 40:11-12). Only God is able to humble a man who was once His enemy, just as He did for Saul on the Damascus road.                                                               Nineteen years ago, when I accepted Christ as my Saviour, I led a classmate of mine to the Lord. His father was furious with me. My friend's brother also found God and in their father's eyes, I was the man who had stolen his sons and led them astray. At that time, he was mayor and a harsh man. He took certain measures to stop his sons, but did not succeed. I was the object of his hatred.        However, the Lord is able to humble people and lead them to Him. This man and his wife were present at our Bible Day service and they received Bibles. This was a great testimony to me. About a month ago, this man started coming to our church meetings after experiencing difficulties in his life and now he has his own Bible. I still cannot get used to seeing him in the congregation, but I want to give all the glory to God!"  Pastor Ivelin Minkov, Bulgarian Christian Baptist Church, Burgas

Jubilee ad"We thank Mission without Borders for these precious gifts. To us, as believers, the Bible is valuable because it is the Word of God which leads us to salvation. For the people who do not know the Lord as yet, it is also valuable even from a material perspective. During this period of economic crisis, people are unable to spare the money for spiritual nurturing. God bless you for this wonderful campaign and may He multiply the material gift to bear the spiritual fruits of repentance and salvation in the hearts of those who received the Bibles."    Ruska Petrova, CM coordinator,Bulgarian Christian Baptist Church, Burgas
