USA (MNN) — As Americans remember fallen soldiers on Memorial Day, one ministry wants you to remember fallen spiritual soldiers — those Americans who gave their lives for the Gospel.
Fred Eiler with World Missionary Press says, “We must remember where we came from in our roots: those who have gone before us and died, that carried the Gospel and died. The only way it’s going to turn around is because they know who Jesus is and accept Him as their Savior.”
He’s talking about the recent Pew Research Study that discovered there are fewer Americans than ever before who call themselves Christians. Eiler says, “In America today, we’re in a post-Christian society, and henceforth ‘The Amazing Life of Christ'( the Scripture booklet) is a real tool that can be used today because Americans don’t know who Jesus is, and that’s sad.”
World Missionary Press supplies Scripture booklets in 343 different languages in 209 countries absolutely free.
While Memorial Day is the unofficial beginning of summer in the United States, Eiler says it can also serve as the unofficial beginning of Scripture distribution.
In order to do that, Scripture sponsors are needed. It costs $21 to sponsor a box of 525 Scripture booklets. Many people hand these out at fairs and festivals, or while on vacation.
Eiler says World Missionary Press is also looking for distributors. “We don’t have to be Bible thumpers, but we need to be Bible distributors; and in doing so we become bolder and bolder with our witness. That’s what Christ commanded us to do in Act 1:8.”
