We are looking for Christian books especially Protestant versions of the whole Holy Bible (i.e. both old and new testaments in one book), including KJV and NKJV, NIV, CEV, etc. (please ask if your version is not listed here) in very good condition, to donate to a local ministry. 

Since its inception in 1994, the Mission has sent out many sea containers holding over 32,000 pounds of books each, to various countries in support of Ministries, Missions and Bible Schools. Hundreds of smaller packages are sent out each year in answer to requests from Pastors, Bible Students and others that write for a Bible or book.  For those of us blessed to own several copies of the bible, it can be heartbreaking and eye-opening to read requests from seminary students and pastors who lack basic books, such as the bible and concordance,  to help them in their calling.

The Ministry needs books with sturdier bindings, such as hardcover and leather, as the books go to countries where the weather is hot, humid and hard on books.   The ministry is conservative and does not take bibles with Apocrapha or versions, such as The Message, that are written primarily for westeners as these versions don't always translate well into other cultures.   If you have bibles that you no longer need, we would be glad to order them from you. Please PM me if you are posting them! Thanks.  Jenn
