NOVEMBER MISSION FOCUS
For over 200 years the Bible Society has been working to bring the Bible to life, to help people around the world to engage with it, relate to it and make sense of it. Translation and distribution projects are only a few parts of its work. They also run literacy classes to teach those who cannot read, and provide large print, audio and braille bibles for those who need additional help.
Malawi is a landlocked country in south eastern Africa, with a population of 15 million people. 74% of the population live below the income poverty line of $1.90 per day. There is a great need for more bibles for children and adults. Around 10,000 children’s bibles are given out every year, but many more are wanted, and it is hoped that the support we give will help with this need.
