Let's Send Bibles to Our Troops
Posted by on Monday, March 10, 2014
We are pleased to partner once again with Faith Comes By Hearing (FCBH) in their “Strengthening Our Troops” Military Outreach. Since 2008, FCBH has provided more than 400,000 Military BibleSticks to our nation’s brave men and women in uniform – free of charge.
The small digital device contains a dramatized recording of the New Testament with 65 minutes of specially selected Psalms, and is distributed to troops through their chaplains. Since the program’s inception, over 1,400 chaplains have requested BibleSticks and distributed them during pre-deployment briefings, counseling sessions, Bible studies, weekly chapel services, and upon direct request of service members. For a donation of just $25 you can fund a Military Bible Stick for a soldier and a MP3 Audio Bible for his/her spouse and a KIDZ Audio Bible for his/her children.
Learn more in our kick-off for “Strengthening Our Troops” on March 6. Goal: Immanuelites funding an entire company of 100 soldiers for $2,500 by Palm Sunday!
