Providing Bibles 'for those without'

By Robert Proctor
The Cuero Record
 
Bibles 4 Peoples, a non-profit based in Cuero, has a simple yet profound goal and mission, to provide Bibles “for those without.” With that focus in mind, B4P have helped provide Bibles to people in 17 countries around the world since 2011.
 
Many places they have traveled and had Bibles sent are very hostile towards Christianity. One such place which is intolerant is the Middle East, including Iraq, Iran, Pakistan and Afghanistan. In particular, northern Iraq currently has a refugee camp with estimates of nearly half a million people trying to escape persecution. Many of the refugees are Muslim who may have never heard of Christianity.
