    Providing Bibles In Nepal

    TWR Canada partnered with Shareware Global (formerly The Gideons International in Canada) to provide the funds for 2000 Bibles to people in hilly and remote areas in Nepal. Following the April 2015 earthquake 9000 people were killed and 824,000 homes were destroyed. Two years later, international media reports that 800,000 homes still need rebuilding. People lost everything in the earthquake, even their Bibles.

    Because of the poor economic situation, lack of infrastructure, and a lack of availability, Bibles are difficult to find. We wanted to share with you just a few of those who received Bibles had to say.

    "I am a regular listener of TWR and through the programs lots of thing have been changing in my life. Though I am a believer, I didn’t have a Holy Bible. When I heard that the Holy Bible was being distributed in our church through TWR’s ministry, I was so happy. I now have a Bible and I am committed to listening to the daily Christian programs and reading the Word of God from the Bible alongside the programs. Thank you so much."

    RM was frequently sick and spent a lot of time in the hospital. Due to his frequent illnesses, his family suffered a lot. His family took him to the sorcerer and witch doctors and spent a lot of money, but nothing worked.

    One day, RM heard the powerful Word of God from a radio program. So he came to church and received Jesus Christ as his personal Saviour. After receiving Christ, RM was completely healed. He didn't have a Bible, so he requested one from TWR Nepal. He received a Bible and is now in a Bible study group. He continues to listen to the radio programs. He was so happy and gives thanks to TWR.

    Listener Groups

    There are listener groups in Nepal who gather to listen to TWR programs regularly. Many of these listeners don't have a Bible, or only a New Testament, because they can't afford to buy one. They expressed their desperate need for Bibles in prayer and God answered their prayers by providing Bibles through TWR. They were so happy to receive the Bibles. They told the TWR Nepal staff that now they have the radio programs and Bibles so they can meditate on the Word of God and learn faster. They are very thankful to TWR for these opportunities.

    Thank you for your continued support of TWR Canada. We know these Bibles will bless those who have received them, and the blessings will multiply as people gather to study and learn, and share their faith with family and friends. SaveSaveSaveSaveSaveSaveSaveSaveSaveSaveSaveSaveSaveSave
