Romans 10:17, "So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God."
- Since 1973, Bearing Precious Seed has produced 173 million copies of Scripture.
- We want to continue to increase what we do in order to reach the lost.
- Our press has more capacity; we simply need more paper.
- Last year, 12.1 million copies of Scripture were printed.
February is the month we set aside to have individuals partner with us to raise money to purchase paper. All money given during National Bible Publishing Month is used only for the purchase of paper. The need is great! Consider that worldwide 151,600 people die each day; that's 105 deaths each minute. So many of those who perish have never had a copy of God's Word. We will continue to do all we can so others may know.
In addition to our National Bible Publishing Month efforts this year, we will challenge people to supply one minute of paper for the press. It costs $37.50 per minute for paper while the press is running. We are calling this initiative the "Minute Plan." Please pray with us about how the Lord might use this to further His Word and to increase the involvement of His people in getting His Word to the regions beyond.
Please pray with Bearing Precious Seed about the following areas:
- That we could fulfill the requests for Scriptures.
- That the need for paper would be met.
- For the Messengers who need the Message.
John 4:35, "Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest."
Luke 8:11, "... The seed is the word of God."
