The beginning of November 2019 marked the beginning of a new phase for Books for Pastors – we are now blessing pastors in Africa! An earlier post mentioned a request for Bibles to be given to pastors there who don’t have them, and as of today, we heard that 40 Bibles are in Kampala, Uganda and are ready to be picked up! According to Deogracious Muwanguzi, our primary contact in Uganda, “How can I start to show my gratitude to you for what you have just done for me and the pastors! I am sorry to actually inform you that your email has just moved my emotions to tears. This is all joy. Thank you so much my brother. We have been praying but not knowing who God will use to make it happen…. Your desire to send us Bibles has blown my understanding. Your desire to come and teach the pastors is an answer to my prayers. We are excited for your love for us. My goal for the school is to equip pastors in Uganda and beyond who are in their active ministry without training.”
While this first mission has been completed, we have someone in Nigeria that needs some Bibles, and there is another request in Uganda for nearly 200 more Bibles. Please check out our Projects section for more details!
The weekend of October 12th, 2019 was a time to forge new friendships, renew some old one, and enjoy fellowship over a study of the Word of God at Faith Baptist Church in Prosperity, West Virginia.
During a Saturday afternoon men’s study, we were able to look into Getz’s best-selling book, “The Measure of a Man.” Taking the opening chapter, “Becoming a faithful man,” we looked at different Scripture passages and had some discussion about faithfulness.
Sunday provided an opportunity to experience the writing of New Testament books as we walked alongside the apostles in our imaginations as Pastor Getz brought the Scriptures to life. As his message concluded with a challenge to get into God’s Word more, we learned more about the work of Getz’s ministry during an interview with Pastor Chris Chesley of Faith Baptist Church.
Getz discussed the Life Essentials Study Bible (http://bibleprinciples.org) and the multi-media qualities of this one-of-a-kind Bible. With 1500 individual study notes, each having a QR code that launches a video by Getz that explains the principle in more depth, Bible readers will receive unparalleled teaching to help them live their lives better in light of God’s Word.
