What is the Bible-A-Month ?

Mozambique
September, 2009

Listening Opens the Door to God's Word

Sitting on a mat in the shade, Laura Alberto Massingi speaks softly of the things of God with the women gathered around her. Questions are asked and gentle answers are given.

With illiteracy levels running high in rural villages like Pembra, Mozambique, Laura says the audio Scriptures are vital to sharing the Word of God. "The talking Bible is the only way that people in Pembra can have access to God's Word. People will sit together to listen but most will never be able to read the Bible."

Pastor Samento's story is powerful. He lost his legs in a mining accident in 1998 and he says that through the audio Scriptures, God has transformed his life and the life of his church. "People love hearing God's Word. As soon as the talking Bible starts to play people begin to gather around."

Using his strong upper body to propel himself along the sandy path from his home to church, pastor Samento carries his talking Bible in his pocket. "I can now thank God for the loss of my legs because people are listening to the message that I bring."

Real stories like these are what motivate CBS staff to work diligently for the Bible cause. It is a privilege to work alongside our Bible-a-Month supporters to share The Word. For Life. You are making a way for the lost to be found and we thank you for your continued support!

Go, then, to all peoples everywhere and make them my disciples…”
Matthew 28:19 GNT

With that message in mind, the Bible-A-Month was created so that people, like you, could reach out with the Word of God to men, women and children in twelve different countries, including Canada, each year.

Translation…

“How wonderful is the coming of messengers who bring good news!”
Romans 10:15 GNT

There are over 6,500 languages and dialects in the world. More than 4,000 of these are still without a single word of Scripture!

As a Bible-A-Month supporter, you will be part of translation projects that will bring good news to men, women and children around the world, enabling God’s Word to speak to their hearts in their own languages.

Publication…

“…as God’s grace reaches more and more people, they will offer to the glory of God more prayers of thanksgiving.”
2 Corinthians 4:15 GNT

The Canadian Bible Society helps to fund publishing projects both in Canada and around the world.

As a Bible-A-Month supporter, you will be part of publication projects that make Scriptures readily available, so that those who have been denied a copy of God’s Word for too long can be reached.

Distribution…

Proclaim his glory to the nations, his mighty deeds to all peoples.”
Psalm 96:3 GNT

The Canadian Bible Society is part of the United Bible Societies’ fellowship, a global organization made up of 130 Bible Societies that aims to provide every person in the world with access to the Scriptures.
