A special message from the publisher...

Dear Reader, because of your generous support, we have received enough funds to send many audio Bibles to Iraqi and Syrian refugees displaced by ISIS in the Middle East.

Would you join us by making a donation today to this important work (James 2:16)? Please click here to send a heater to a refugee family >>
