Book Distribution - Serving Bible Colleges and Seminaries
Bibles and Christian books are among the tools considered essential for effective ministry by our partners. Leaders and lay people alike need Bibles. Pastors and other workers need study materials. Faculty and students in the Bible schools and seminaries need libraries to support their work. Because the power supply in their countries is often limited and blackouts common, students and faculty cannot depend upon access to the internet or the use of cassettes, compact discs or DVDs. They want books but the Bible schools as well as individual pastors and evangelists have no budget for books - books that may cost as much as a month's salary.
EWI distributes both new and used books, Bibles, periodicals, tracts, and audio visual materials to the extent that our resources allow. Our records show that we have shipped at least 40,000 donated books to partners in India, Burma, Kenya, Sudan, Ghana, Nigeria, Cameroon, and Haiti. We also arrange to have materials translated for overseas distribution and to provide assistance where needed to allow for publishing of new contextualized material by overseas partners.
Some have written notes telling of the significance of the books to their ministries:
"We are extremely grateful for the wonderful books that have come to our college library. We can never even dream to buy such expensive books. This is a very great help for our ministry. We pray and hope that you will [continue to send]."
"JMBC wants to thank EWI for your valuable and sacrificial support for building up our library. We are in debt to the donors of your organization..."
"You will not believe how valuable your effort has been to help us build our library...."
We are grateful for the thousands of books that have been donated and look forward to continuing to receive those that are suitable for the training of Christian workers and for aiding those in ministry. We will need your help, however, to enable us to continue purchasing supplies and to cover the postage and shipping costs.
