ANM Storybook Bibles for Children ~ and you can make a difference!

**This is a sponsored post.**

Recently, FrontGate Media shared with me about an amazing organization that is getting storybook Bibles into the hands of those who’ve never seen them before in villages far from city centers, in China. The organization is Advancing Native Missions (ANM). ANM sends Christian workers to those who haven’t yet heard the gospel. The neat thing about these Christian workers is that they are FROM the same nation they’re sharing the gospel with!

About Advancing Native Missions (ANM)

Since 1992, ANM has sent Christian workers to those who haven’t learned about Jesus, God, or the Bible. The key difference about ANM is that they equip these workers to go to unreached areas of their own nations! So rather than a missionary from a foreign country (like America, for example) going to share the gospel, these individuals get to hear the gospel from their own people. You can find out more about ANM at the ANM/About page.

But there is a way that Americans can get involved! ANM matches donations from non-native (i.e., you and me) givers with their local ministry workers and areas. Today, I’m sharing with you about an exciting way that you can help get children’s Bibles to far-flung areas of Asia!

About these storybook Bibles

ANM is producing wonderful children’s storybook Bibles in Chinese! Working with Chinese pastors, ANM will be providing these storybook Bibles printed in the Chinese language, with illustrations that will appeal to every reader. They will be produced in an area from which they can be shipped to the pastors for little cost. The pastors will then take them to villages and remote areas of China. Children, their parents, and grandparents can then read a storybook version of God’s Word together–and, maybe for the first time, understand how much God loves them!

Specifically:

  • The stories are faithfully adapted and beautifully illustrated by Chinese Christians.
  • Chinese pastors and house church leaders will deliver the Bibles, giving them a great opportunity to share the Gospel in person and start relationships with families.
  • Chinese church leaders say that every Bible will reach at least seven people: the child who receives it, their parents, and their grandparents.

How you can help

For only $4, you can send a Bible to a Chinese family! That is a fantastic return for your missions/donations dollar. Imagine how many hands a book can pass through. As ANM shared above, each Bible is expected to reach at least 7 people. Who knows, beyond that? A book can travel through many, many hands before its life is over!

If you’d like to participate, simply click on the link below. That will take you to the donation page for ANM’s children’s Bibles for China. I encourage you to check out this lovely opportunity! $4 is less than you’d pay for a kid’s meal at most fast food restaurants. Yet here, $4 can make a lasting and eternal impact!

“Revolution in World Missions” ~ a review plus a free copy for you!

#sponsored post #partner

I’ve been given the most amazing book about sharing Christ overseas by FrontGate Media. I’m excited to tell you about it, and share a link where you can sign up to get a free copy of this exceptional book for yourself! It’s called Revolution In World Missions, authored by K.P. Yohannan. It spoke to my heart so richly, and I believe it will do the same for you!

Here’s a bit about Revolution In World Missions

“Lord, I’ll give myself to speak for You.”

Young Yohannan had no idea what those words of surrender would mean for his life and for millions of others in his generation. Once an insecure 16-year-old, he became a missionary statesman who has impacted the world of missions and whose unbending message has touched hungry hearts on every continent.

Step into his story and experience the world through his eyes. You’ll walk right into the book of Acts. And through his telling, you’ll hear the very heart of God beating for His creation. K.P. Yohannan’s passion is contagious and spurs you on to be all for Jesus.

He chose to take the road less traveled many years ago, and today Gospel for Asia, www.gfa.org  the mission he founded, is one of the most respected organizations in our time with thousands of national workers and vibrant congregations throughout the heart of the 10/40 Window.

Get ready, your life is about to change!

Do you long to let go of self-centeredness and be more eternally minded?

Do you desire to make a difference in the lost world but aren’t sure how to go about it?

Change Your Life
Many people have said this book changed their life—and it just might change yours too!

My thoughts about the book

What a beautiful experience reading K.P. Yohannan’s book is! His stories about his own life, about people in the 10/40 window, and missionaries who serve with Gospel For Asia (GFA), are incredible and will open the door to a world that many Westerners will be unfamiliar with. It’s a joyful, exhorting, and inspiring book that shows by example and experience what the Great Commission is all about; and what it can look like today–for you!

Although K.P. was born in India, he was educated in Western countries. So, his message about missions and the 10/40 window is shaped by not only by understanding those countries but also being well-acquainted with the American or Western traditions of missionaries. Are you not sure what the 10/40 window is? It’s an imaginary rectangle which lies over 68 countries that stretch from North Africa, across the Middle East, and into Asia, located between 10 and 40 degrees north latitude. Within this rectangle are around 5.11 billion humans, and over 8700 ethnic groups–most of whom have no access to the gospel at all. As the twentieth century closed and the twenty-first began, many of these countries became less accessible to Western Christian missionaries. But these countries are open to their own citizens, who’ve heard the gospel themselves and wish to share it with their own people.

I LOVE how K.P. Yohannan shares about both the needs of these nations, how their own countrymen have come to Christ and are becoming equipped to share the gospel through GFA’s Bible schools and financial supporters. It is humbling and inspiring to read the stories of men and women (because women in the 10/40 window definitely comprise a significant unreached people group) who go into the poorest areas, live among the poor, and bring not only Christ but literacy, medical assistance, and more to those who desperately need it. I love stories like these, which remind me that Jesus not only loves “the least of these” but can make a way for those precious ones to receive Him and His care and provision. I actually sped through the book and couldn’t put it down. It’s a remarkable and challenging (in the best way!) book. And Gospel For Asia is happy to provide you with a copy of it!

Being a missionary is an absolutely incredible experience. But so is helping to support missionaries, or praying for them and bringing them (and those they serve) before God’s throne. I really do find that living in the Western world, with its liberties, wealth, and (oftentimes) ease of life can cause us to forget those who live all around the rest of our globe. I so appreciated how Revolution In World Missions reminded me of the joy of engaging with those other world citizens. Don’t miss this wonderful book. If you’re like me, you’ll find it unforgettable!
