Police Chief Helps Distribute Bibles

[145] prayers in [12] nations have been posted for those who received Bibles.

A Persian house church leader had two boxes of Farsi New Testaments in the trunk of his car. When he saw that he was approaching a police checkpoint, he pulled over and left the boxes of Bibles on the side of the road. Later that night, the police chief saw the boxes on the roadside and thought they might contain contraband, so he put them in his truck and took them home. Once he got home and opened the boxes, he discovered the boxes were filled with Bibles and wasn’t sure what to do with them. Since the Persian New Year was approaching, he decided to give the Bibles to each family member and guest at his home. A VOM worker reported that when one of the women who received a Bible called the contact information inside of it and was asked who gave her the New Testament, she replied, “My family friend. He is the police chief.” Pray that the police chief and those who received the Bibles will find salvation in Christ through them. Pray that Bible distributors in Iran will continue to find creative ways of delivering Bibles into the country.
