Sewing, Literacy, and Counseling

Through Equip the Nations indigenous missionaries, we want to empower abused and poverty-stricken women to live freely to the Lord by adding ten more slum sewing, literacy, and biblical counseling centers. https://equipthenations.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/CounselingCenters.mp4 Our centers provide the atmosphere for women to truthfully talk with other women about their daily needs and struggles.

Used Bible Literacy Program Stan & June Hinman Post 261

Used Bible Literacy Program  Stan & June Hinman The vision is to collect used Bibles, ship them to India, and allow India Bible Literature (IBL) to place a scripture in every home in India.

We accept Bibles (all translations), Study Bibles, Bible Dictionaries, Bible Commentaries, Concordances, Children’s Bibles (in great demand), and Children’s Bible Story Books, English Dictionaries. We also accept mainline Evangelical Books by authors such as: Billy Graham, Charles Stanley, Chuck Swindoll, and C.S. Lewis. We accept only books for this literacy program. Our Goal is to fill up a 20-foot shipping container. You and your church can drop your boxed Bibles and books off at one of our drop points. Please see bottom of the Newsletter for a drop box location. WHY INVEST YOUR TIME AND USED BIBLES? 1. Many pastors and Christian leaders in India have no libraries, resources, or Bible study tools. Many believers don’t even have a Bible. When you donate a Bible, it is sold at an affordable cost at book fairs to Christians and ministers who deeply desire to possess these resources, but are unable to purchase new ones. You can be sure that your Bibles and resources will be used and treasured. 2. Many private schools in India are English Medium Schools – creating a significant need for English Language Bibles. Used Bibles from American Christians meet needs of believers in India who read and...
