Earthquake Brings Need for Bibles

[290] prayers in [19] nations have been posted for Believers who lost Bibles.

On Sept. 28, 2018, a powerful earthquake hit central Sulawesi province, Indonesia, killing at least 1,763 people and destroying 1,700 homes; an additional 5,000 people were reported missing. Many Christians lost their Bibles, a lifeline for those recovering from devastating losses, so VOM committed to providing 10,000 Bibles to replace those lost. VOM workers who helped distribute Bibles in some of the affected communities said the believers were deeply grateful. “One woman grabbed my hand and would not let go,” a VOM worker said. Pray that God’s Word will strengthen the faith of those who received a Bible.
