(Mission News Network) Mission Cry just sent one shipping container to Belize and another to Zambia. But what makes these massive crates so special?

“Those are filled with about a half million dollars worth of used Bibles and Christian books ranging anywhere from Bibles to seminary books by Christian authors for Christian education, and those are sent around the world for free distribution,” explained Jason Woolford of Mission Cry.

Last year, Woolford announced that Mission Cry wanted to have enough Bibles and books to put one in every home in the entire country of Belize. Thanks to donations and contributions, they were able to meet their goal. The first container recently landed, and a large turnout from the local community helped unload the books.

“Last year, when we were in Belize, we had 700 people waiting in a line for two and a half hours to get a used Bible that had markings and writing in it,” Woolford says. “When they got it, some of them cried, some of them fell to their knees, and children rejoiced. This is a real need that’s being met.”

    How will they preach unless they are sent? Just as it is written, “HOW BEAUTIFUL ARE THE FEET OF THOSE WHO BRING GOOD NEWS OF GOOD THINGS!”

  • Wow, half a million dollars worth of Bibles. That should greatly help the starving masses. In Zambia, 60% of the population is poor and 41% is considered to be extremely poor (indigent). In Belize, 24.5 percent of households (or 33 percent of individuals) are poor and 7.5 percent were indigent (10 percent of individuals).

    Just think! That many Bibles will go a long way with filling their hungry stomachs, if those Bibles are edible or will grow food if planted.

    I went back and re-read Matthew 25:32-46, where Jesus is admonishing his followers how to treat the poor. I didn’t find a single word or verse telling us to send Bibles or even a transcript of the scriptures. What was written in these verses should be a guiding light to Christians, but to fundamentalists, it appears that the mantra of the Holy Inquisitions of the Catholic Church holds first place in their hearts: “Save the soul even at the expense of the body.” Let the children starve. Many have gone even further–kill the gays!
