Churches Share Hand-Copied Bibles

[207] prayers in [12] nations have been posted for Bibles for Cuba.

In Cuba, Bibles are precious and sometimes scarce. Even when Bibles are available, they can cost a third of a worker’s monthly income. But Christians in Cuba are hungry for God’s Word and are finding creative solutions to the limited access. In some communities, hand-copied chapters of the Bible are shared among the members of one church. Pray for the success of efforts aimed at getting a Bible into the hands of every follower of Christ in Cuba.
