By May 19, 2006

Chile (MNN)–The Bible League has a new ministry director in Chile, Manuel Diaz.

According to information on the ministry website, his first responsibility will be opening an office in Santiago. Diaz will soon begin training pastors and church leaders in using the Bible League’s Scripture placement programs.

Statistics show a shortage of Bibles. Best estimates indicate about 120,000 Bibles are going into the country each year, and the same reports show three million evangelical Christians in Chile.

Diaz brings academic, pastoral, and church planting experience to his new position with Bible League. He is academic director of the National Bible Institute in Santiago, where he’s taught and influenced a majority of the pastors in Chile for 18 years.

Including Chile, the Bible League has ministry in 10 Latin American countries. During 2005, the Bible League provided more than 936,000 Bibles and New Testaments to people who completed Bible studies throughout Latin America, and helped local Christian leaders establish 526 new churches.
