SWMI is partnering with three other missions to collect theological books and materials for pastors, leaders, and theological students in three English-based Bible colleges in Northern India. Do you – or someone you know – have doctrinally-sound Bible study books, such as Bible commentaries, Bible dictionaries, missionary biographies, apologetics books, etc. that could be donated to the Northern India Missions Book Project? While most Bible students in the U.S.A. now use electronic Bible study programs for devotions and for study, that is not true among pastors and theological students in most Third-World countries. Many men in ministry in these places have only a handful of sound theological books at their disposal. In most other parts of the world, technological or electrical considerations make that impossible. Much of Northern India is such a place, but there are students anxious to take the Word of God to their own villages and to nearby countries. Our goal is to ship a full container in July or August.
How else can you help? 1) If you are in the Eastern US, perhaps your church could be a collection station for nearby book donors. We can arrange pick-up after June 15. 2) The container will be shipped from Bearing Precious Seed, Milford, Ohio. (Anyone in the Northeastern US, please DO NOT drop off any books to BPS before June 20th. Boxes NOT already clearly designated by name will be distributed equally.) 3) You may donate to help defray the estimated $9,000 cost of shipping and distribution. Send donations to IGM, designated for “North India Missions Book Project” C/O International Gospel Missions, (a Baptist Missions Agency). International Gospel Missions – 990 Calkins Road – Rochester, NY 14623. (For electronic contributions (ShortURL): https://goo.gl/3f16Uw. Choose “Giving Type” Vision2020Asia and “Gift Description” North India Missions Book Project). 4) PRAY for the Lord to provide a full 20’ container.
Contact me to discuss what you can do to help or inform me of someone who could be of help. I am also collecting books in Trenton for this project. However, please contact me before sending anything to me. Thank you for considering this much-needed project to India. Contact David by clicking here.
