You can help Africa’s Hope send FIRE to West Africa for just $20!
Today we have the opportunity to bless French-speaking Assemblies of God pastors in West Africa with their very own FireBible®!
If you’re not familiar with the history, 18 years ago a comprehensive study Bible was introduced to Chinese house-church pastors. They read through it and exclaimed:
“This is like fire in our hands! We are going to use this to teach Pentecost and strengthen our churches.”
That is how the FireBible got its name. Now Africa’s Hope wants to send at least 1,000 leather-bound French FireBibles this year to West Africa (where French is the predominant language). We can do this for just $20 per copy!
We are praying that friends like you will partner with us to send this wonderful ministry tool to the continent. For many years the FireBible has blessed pastors all over the world in more than 40 languages. For just $20 we can make a durable leather-bound French FireBible available to a French-speaking Assemblies of God pastor in Africa! An offering of $40 will bless two pastors; $80 will bless four pastors; $200 will bless 10 pastors, and so on.
The picture on the left is Dr. Etienne Zongo, a national AG leader in Burkina Faso, accepting a French FireBible from AGWM West Africa Area Director Randy Tarr on behalf of the Bible school in Ouagadougou. That FireBible is now available for use in the school’s library, where dozens of students can use it for study and sermon preparation.
Not every French-speaking pastor in Africa has the privilege to access a Bible like this one. Too often in my travels I see African pastors who have old, worn out Bibles or sometimes only a New Testament. Others have a Bible, but it is printed in a language in which they have limited understanding.
The FireBibles we are giving will undoubtedly become prized possessions to be treasured always. Each Bible is carefully bound in leather and printed on quality paper so that it will last for many years.
Most of all, each FireBible will be used to rightly divide and preach the Word of God in Africa! The FireBible is famous for its Pentecostal study notes (located at the bottom of each page), articles, maps, reference tools, and other helps that the reader can use to gain a better understanding of the text.
These Bibles will be used to help shape the lives of African men and women who are called to plant churches among the unevangelized, disciple new communities of faith, and nurture existing believers.
At $20, this is a bargain. I urge you to give as many FireBibles as you can. Every African pastor should have a quality copy of God’s Word.Give now
