Pray for the Distribution of Bibles in Southern Mali

[224] prayers in [16] nations have been posted for Pastors distributing Bibles.

There is a shortage of Bibles in the Sikasso Region of southern Mali, and the Bibles are desperately needed because of an increasing number of new Christian believers. In the past, Islamic extremists destroyed Bibles first when attacking villages. VOM recently replaced 1,200 Bibles, but that number represents only a fraction of what is needed in the area. Brother Amadou Barry, a pastor and former imam, placed his faith in Christ after a pastor gave him a Bible in Arabic. He had read in the Quran that Jesus, son of Mary, is above all, and he saw that confirmed in Philippians 2 and Colossians 2. Unsettled by these Bible verses, he returned to the pastor who had given him the Bible and told him he believed Jesus is God. Please pray for the courage of pastors engaged in door-to-door evangelism, and pray that they will receive adequate literature and resources to replace the Bibles that are destroyed.
