We are excited to share with you a project that has the potential to impact many, many lives for Christ here in Nicaragua. We need your prayers for this beginning today!
In partnership with Larry and Bev Smith, our dear friends and the vision behind and initiators of the ABWE Ministry Center, we will be launching a Study Bible project among the church plants here. Larry and Bev have been instrumental in raising funds and have shipped over 500 Study Bibles which just arrived and are waiting to be picked up in customs, please pray that this process will go smoothly and quickly!
The premise behind the project is that small groups will meet with a group leader from the church plants and given a reading plan, a notebook, and will be loaned a Study Bible. They will commit to read through the Bible in a year and to meet twice a month as a group for accountability, to discuss what they have read, ask questions, etc. At the end of that year, those who complete the program will get to keep the Bible!
We are thrilled that Larry and Bev will be arriving on August 1st and staying through October 8th, not only to launch the project, but also to be our keynote speaker during our 3rd Annual Missions Conference for the Nicaraguan churches and church plants.
Please be in much prayer now, and over the course of this year, that the word of God would indeed be powerful in the lives of many as they study it together.
