BIBLES AND LITERATURE

This fund helps VOM print and distribute Bibles to believers who reside in restricted nations, where Bibles are difficult to obtain. This includes producing New Testaments and complete Bibles in both print and digital formats as well as Bible commentaries and inspirational Christian training material.

VOM’s international projects are overseen by our local contacts or are achieved in cooperation with partner ministries.

These select examples have been chosen to provide an overview of how Voice of the Martyrs encouraged and assisted persecuted Christians with the help of our supporters, in 2019.

Project: Discipleship Training Literature
Country: China (Communist world)
Over 1,300 book sets comprising comprehensive discipleship training material were given to church leaders. Through this curriculum, Christians are encouraged in the Lord and feel empowered to share the Gospel with others despite the danger. “It is not good here for us now, but we will continue the work for the Lord.” – Chinese believer. The project is continuing in 2020.
Funds provided: $63,243

Project: Right Choices Bible
Country: Egypt (Muslim world)
Around 11,000 copies of the Right Choices Bible, by Josh McDowell, were distributed in Cairo, Alexandria and Upper Egypt. This version is suitable for older children and families. Christian leaders have found this Bible to be a wonderful and valuable tool in the discipleship of Muslim background believers, helping them to grow in faith and knowledge of God.
Funds provided: $67,558

Project: Bibles and Hymn Books for Persecuted Believers
Country: Vietnam (Communist world)
Bibles (300), New Testaments (400) and hymn books (2,000) were supplied to tribal believers in various languages, in remote areas of Vietnam. The Word of God is needed as the church continues to grow. Tribal believers love to worship through song, therefore hymn books are sought after and treasured.
Funds provided: $18,245

Project: Large Print Bibles
Country: China (Communist world)
Bibles can be purchased at book shops operated by the state-sanctioned Three-Self Patriotic Movement; however, the majority of Christians belong to unregistered, illegal churches. People of all ages are coming to know the Lord in China and there is a great need for Bibles for the rapidly growing church. This project supplied 4,200 Bibles to
senior believers with poor eyesight.
Funds provided: $24,000

Project: Bible Balloon Launches
Country: North Korea (Communist world)
Every year VOM sends approximately 40,000 Bibles into North Korea by balloon, aided by GPS positioning technology. The project is continuing in 2020.
Funds provided: $50,000

Lord of the Nations you have spoken by your Son in these last days and have given to your people the blessing of your written word and the gift of your Holy Spirit. We pray for China, Egypt, Vietnam and North Korea as your word comes into the hands of believers and unbelievers. ‘Open their eyes that they may behold wondrous things out of your word’ (Paraphrase Psalm 119:18) and bring a deep impression of divine things (David Brainerd) upon the hearts and minds of all who receive them, to the renown of your name. Thank you for these Gospel… Read more »
