Gift a First Bible

Provide God’s word to those who have yet to receive it


Every $11 provides a waiting Christian with their first Bible.

Can you imagine not having a full Bible to turn to? For countless Christians around the world, a Bible in their own language is something they’ve longed for, prayed for and dreamed of for decades. For many, this is because the Scriptures have yet to be translated into their heart language. For others poverty, isolation or persecution have prevented them from owning a Bible.

Your donation will help provide yearning Christians the most precious gift they’ll ever receive – God’s word in their heart language.

  • 209 million people remain without a single Scripture verse translated into their heart language.
  • 406 million people have restricted access to God’s word with only some portions of Scripture in their language.
  • Countless others can’t afford or access a Bible.
  • Bible Societies and their partners are currently working on over 400 projects around the world including Bible translation and distribution in countries such as Cuba, Egypt, Iraq, Nicaragua, the Philippines, the South Pacific, South Africa, Suriname and Vietnam.

Your generous support will go to translation and distribution projects working toward the day when everyone can access the full Bible in their heart language.

How you can be praying for this project:

  • Please continue to pray with us as many more receive a copy of God’s word for the first time.
  • Pray for those who have yet to receive a copy of God’s word in their heart language, that God will already be preparing their hearts to hear his words.
  • Praise God for our translation teams around the world who are working on a number of translation projects around the world.
  • Praise God for new opportunities that have opened up to distribute God’s word in places that were previously closed to us.
  • Pray that we will be able to distribute more Bibles to places, particularly where the church is flourishing
  • Pray for each Christian who receives a copy of the Scriptures that they may read and understand the word of God and be nurtured and transformed.
  • Pray for each non-believer or seeker who receives a copy of the Scriptures, that their heart will be opened and that they may seek Jesus as their Lord and saviour.
