Over half of the world today does not have religious freedom. In many of these countries, Christians have either limited or no access to Bibles. There are some Christians who have never owned their own Bible.
When our workers visit these areas, the Persecuted Christians ask first for prayer and then for Bibles. Even in refugee camps where many Christians are forced to live without proper nutrition or basic medical care, they ask for Bibles. They seem to understand that this life is short, so they ask for spiritual food in preparation for eternity.
