100,000 Bibles sought for persecuted Christians

Open Doors, a California-based ministry supporting the persecuted church worldwide, is helping sponsor Sunday, Nov.8 as the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church. In praying for the persecuted church on that day, Open Doors is asking for donations to provide 100,000 children’s and youth Bibles. “A church’s financial support of this campaign will make a real difference as it only costs $5 to send one Bible to build a child in his or her young faith.” says Jane Huckaby, vice president of program services for Open Doors. “The church in America can bring them the one hope on which they can stand strong.” IDOP is one of the largest prayer events in the world – an estimated half a million churches in 150 countries – and has heightened awareness of persecuted Christians since its inception in 1996. It crosses all denominational lines. Link: International Day of Prayer materials: http://members.opendoorsusa.org/site/PageNavigator/IDOP_2009_LP
