Bible and Literature Distribution Sharing God's Love means Sending His Word
In 2011 Open Doors distributed more than 3.1 million Bibles and training materials to persecuted Christians in almost 50 countries. This represented great increases in Africa, Egypt, India, the Middle East, and Latin America.
During the Arab Spring in one closed country, Open Doors was ready to take advantage of a unique opportunity. "There was a short moment in time when there were no checks at the border..." said an Open Doors worker. As a result, more bibles and Christian literature was delivered to the people than had been brought in during the entire 42 years previously.
Open Doors also exploited new opportunities in Central Asia, delivering 470,000 bibles and much needed training materials requested by church leaders. "Our country lacks a good fundamental Christian education." wrote a Central Asian pastor. "But your books unite people in their faith and the active grace of Christ. I cannot express how important your help is for the churches in our country.
From the Beginning, Open Doors has focused on bringing the Word of God to the world. The need continues to be great, but the provision of our God is greater.
