Story number 3 for 17 Mar 2000

Book of Hope is preparing for their annual Hope Celebration in order to set their sights on their goals for this year. BOH’s John Young says their mission is to influence the future of the world’s youth by providing them with the hope of God’s Word. “We gather once a year, when we bring country directors and folks that work with us around the world to just rejoice in what God is doing, and rejoice in the fact that there is hope for youth and children around the world. It’s just an incredible thing to be able to have the mandate to go and preach the Word and to reach the lost.” Young says despite political turmoil in many of the countries they work in, there are open doors. Of the 26 countries represented, all have committed to distributing the Gospel in unprecedented numbers. “This year marks a milestone for us. In September, we’re looking to distribute our 100-millionth copy to date, of the Book of Hope-so, we’re really excited about that. We need to pray for laborers-pray that God would bring those that have a heart for youth and children to be a part of the ministry.”
