USA (MNN) — Crates full of Christian goodies like Bibles and teaching tools will soon reach believers in South Africa and India.
"We've sent out over $700,000 in free Bibles and Christian teaching tools," said Jason Woolford with Christian Resources International. One crate with soft-cover Bibles went to a prison ministry in Johannesburg, South Africa.
"A lot of the prisoners there are excited to be able to read, because their prisons are not like ours."
Woolford said CRI's ministry in Karala, India is focused on restocking and building a new Bible college library. A "Christmas crate" full of Christian books and other materials relating to Christmas is scheduled to go to Hong Kong in three weeks. These resources are desperately needed, but it costs over $10,000 to send just one crate.

You'll have two chances for a night of fun with CRI and Matthew West: October 4th at the Central Church of Nazarene in Flint, MI, and October 6th in Midland, MI, at the Midland Evangelical Free Church. Along with hearing music and stories, you can donate gently used Bibles and other Christian resources to CRI.
