Lent 2023: God's Word Goes Out

This Lent, Hope is partnering with mission partner, Bibles For The World, to distribute Bibles to our brothers and sisters in India! As a church, we are currently reading through the Whole Holy Bible in a Year, and we want to provide the opportunity for others around the world to do that with us!

Our goal is to provide 500,000 copies of God’s Word (the New Testament, Psalms, and Proverbs) to individuals in northern India – a region that is currently less than half a percent Christian. Through working with Bibles For The World and their network of church planters throughout that region, we will be bringing God’s Word to thousands of people who have never had the opportunity read or hear it in their native language.


Here’s how you can get involved:


All donations to God’s Word Goes Out will go to Hope’s mission partner, Bibles For The World, to distribute Bibles (New Testament and Psalms & Proverbs) to our brothers and sisters in India in their native language.

Ways to give:

  1. Labeled donation buckets at your church campus
  2. Online here
  3. By texting LENT and the dollar amount to 515-219-9093 (example: texting “LENT 50” donates $50 to the Lent Project)


In addition to your financial support, we also ask that you please join us in praying for our brothers and sisters in India. Like no other time before, India’s political leadership is condoning the persecution and oppression of Christians. Even in the face of the onslaught of attacks on churches, and false arrests of pastors and church workers, Bibles For The World is seeing tremendous growth in the Body of Christ. Churches are being planted and many Indians are coming to know Jesus Christ for the first time. But, there is still so much more to do! By providing them with their own copy of God's Word, they will be able to read, study, memorize and "hide God's Word in their heart," so that no matter what they face in the future, they will remain strong in their faith and understanding of God's plan and purpose for their lives!

“It is the same with my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it.’” – Isaiah 55:11
