Open Doors USA to Send 100,000 Bibles to Persecuted Christians Around the World This Year

It’s difficult to imagine not having access to Scripture, but for millions of believers around the globe, that is their everyday reality. One charity, Open Doors USA, is changing that for tens of thousands of Christians this Christmas.

After a successful Giving Tuesday campaign, the persecution watchdog is continuing its Bible-smuggling tradition, an effort dating back to 1955, when the organization’s founder, Brother Andrew, hid Bibles in his Volkswagen Beetle and delivered them inside countries hostile toward Christians.

David Curry, president of Open Doors, told Faithwire in a statement Thursday that this year’s campaign “is the greatest outpouring of support” the charity has ever seen from believers in the United States.

“The need is greater than ever, and it’s encouraging to see Americans rise to meet that challenge,” he said. “It will make a tremendous difference in the lives of persecuted Christians around the world.”
