Since its establishment, Vision Beyond Borders has helped distribute over 1 million Bibles worldwide. We hope to increase this number every year. Though the media portrays that many countries around the world are gradually embracing religious freedom, the reality is as the Gospel spreads, government resistance to the Gospel increasing. Despite government opposition, the hunger for God’s word among his people grows. In China and other countries closed to the Gospel, the Bible has been valued over life itself in some instances. Knowing they need God’s Word in order to be spiritually free, people endure imprisonment, beatings, and loss of life to keep God’s Word alive in their country. Hundreds of people may share the same Bible, spending countless hours hand-copying it. Since its establishment, Vision Beyond Borders has helped distribute over 1 million Bibles worldwide. We hope to increase this number every year. God has made it clear to Vision Beyond Borders that He desires his Word to be carried to the ends of the earth and has called us to do so. We have seen God provide in such miraculous ways, and we believe that our task is not finished until every person in every village has received the Gospel and a Bible in their own language.
We have seen God open many borders, and it is truly amazing how He provides distractions so we can get through customs. One time a team was carrying a large load of Bibles and prayed for a miracle. The man in front of them approached the x-ray machine and was told to put his bag through it. He misunderstood and thought they wanted him to walk through it. The guards all broke out laughing as this man walked through the x-ray machine – the customs agents were laughing so hard they were crying. As a result, the team passed by with a large load of Bibles. The team thanked the Lord, believing He sent an angel to distract the guards. Another team, with a large shipment, were also praying as they entered customs.Suddenly, the electrical power went out when they entered the building, and the customs man let them walk through. As soon as they left the building, the power came back on. They were able to safely deliver the Bibles to the local believers. Many of our team members have shared similar testimonies. Our love for God’s word isn’t limited to physical Bibles. We understand the Lord can use different mediums to save His people. We have delivered over 15,000 hand wind tape players and MP3 players, thousands of Bible flannel graphs, and hundreds of Gospel bead bracelets to closed countries.
