OVER 1 BILLION PEOPLE IN INDIA DON'T KNOW THE HOPE OF CHRIST

It may seem like an insurmountable obstacle—until you break that really big number of one billion down to just one. One woman desperate for Christ’s love. One man hungry for redemption from his past. One child crying out for a Father to love him. The fact is, among the 1 billion Indian people who don’t know Christ, there is a light shining—it’s called the Church. And the believers in those churches are the way in which God wants to reach India. They’re persevering and brave in the midst of persecution. And, just like you, they have a heart to reach their communities with the gospel.

For years, a man named Samson collected request from people who wanted the Bible. By 2015, he had 250,000 names. The Gideons International In Canada | ShareWord Global and thousands of Canadians partnered with Samson to reach the goal. Praise God, every one of those 250,000 people received their own copy of God’s Word!

As the Bibles spread out into the rural communities of India through pastor networks, new requests for Bibles came in. There are now 350,000 new requests! These names represent thousands of families who are ready to be impacted by the Word of God. And that’s how you can help! You can place a Bible into the hands of someone in India who’s waiting for their very first Bible—from right where you’re sitting. Thanks to that person’s pastor and involvement in a church family, they’ll grow in the Word and have a new confidence to reach out to their community with the gospel.

Each gift of $5 will be used to share the gospel with someone in India and give them a copy of God’s Word. Imagine the ripple effects of that one Bible! Not only is their immediate family impacted, but their friends, colleagues, and neighbours now have a chance to read God’s Word too, and be introduced to Jesus. And gradually the Light of the world will begin to shine deeper into the darkness of India.

Light for India

Millions of people in India don’t know what Jesus has done for them and is offering them. No one has told them, and they have no Bibles to read for themselves. Having a copy of God’s Word changes everything…

"My life has completely changed because of the Jesus I read about in the Bible! I grew up worshiping Hindu gods. But after years of spousal and family abuse, I gave up on the gods because they left me feeling empty and alone. Then one day a Punjabi coworker told me to talk to Jesus because He would listen. So I requested a New Testament from ShareWord Global and one day met Jesus in the Gospel of John. He freed me from my past and gave me a new beginning. Now I can’t stop sharing Him with others." -- Neha

Please give today so the Light can shine in India like never before! Your $60 donation means 20 people will receive a Light magazine to introduce them to Jesus.

The time is now. Please give today so thousands of people in India can receive God’s Word and hear of His great love for them.

Will you be a part of changing India with the gospel?
