International (VOM) — For persecuted believers around the world, sometimes the most important thing they can have is God’s Word. Voice of the Martyrs USA is asking for your help to deliver 191,267 Bibles to oppressed Christians who’ve asked for Scripture.

“We are targeting to get a Bible into the hands of believers, to strengthen their faith, and to encourage them,” explains VOM spokesman Todd Nettleton.

“We hope to fulfill the need in about 60 days, so our hope is by the end of May that this need will be met.”

VOM delivers Bibles throughout the year, but this campaign is designed to connect you directly with Christians who are persecuted. When you sponsor Bibles, VOM will send you the names of those who will receive them so you can pray for them.

“Pray that God will use [Scripture] to strengthen their faith and to encourage them,” requests Nettleton.

When you get the names of those who will receive your sponsored Bibles, you will notice one name left blank. This represents a Christian who will receive a Bible in a very dangerous area (like Iran or North Korea), where even obtaining the person’s name is too dangerous.

Some believers wait months or even years for a Bible–one woman waited 42 years! For some, the price of a Bible is unaffordable. For many, Bibles are simply unobtainable anywhere nearby. For others, Bibles are unavailable in their restricted nation.

VOM recently received the following report from China:

“Because the house churches in China are facing some persecution from outside, it is not very easy to have a Bible. Some people even sacrificed their lives. Some elders can’t help giving a kiss to the book when they receive the Bible, and they treated every sentence in it like treasure and memorized the words in hearts.”

You can send five Bibles to waiting Christians for just $30. Click here to learn more.


  • I have been a partner with VOM for some years now. One question:

    When I send my monthly gift I never know how much to send for VOM administrative support and how much to designate. I don’t want VOM admin not to have its necessary funds to function but I also want to make sure I have covered the areas VOM feels is vital at the time. Mostly I always want to everything admin doesn’t need to supply Bibles.

    Hey Wrenn, great question and thanks for your support of VOM! The best way to get an answer for you question would be calling VOM and speaking to one of their people directly. You can reach them at (918) 337-8015

  • Fantastic post however , I was wondering if you could write a litte more on this topic? I’d be very grateful if you could elaborate a little bit further. Cheers!|
