MBS Grant Highlights

| February 13, 2013 | 0 Comments

Among all, some receive special focus

In 2012, MBS has continued to be generous in granting Scriptures. While giving to a great variety of ministries, 3 ministries in particular received special attention: Prison ministries, Disaster relief efforts and Inner City literacy and evangelism.
MBS expanded our partnerships and donations to prison ministries by 100%.  Most of these were located in Central Maryland.
In October, disaster relief became critically important.  Over 1,000 scriptures have been sent to victims of Hurricane Sandy through the ministries of Somebody Cares, the North American Mission Board and the “Takin’ it to the Street” ministry.  The need, still so great, was seen in Garthfield, New Jersey where Pastor Ron’s ministry reported 300+ salvations in one day.
Pastor Ron’s ministry has also taken on the challenge of evangelization and literacy in Washington, D.C.’s inner city.  He has renewed the practice of teaching literacy to children using the Bible.  MBS has been pleased to grant over 500 scriptures for this effort.
The Scripture Grant Program can only continue with your support.  $10 will allow MBS to grant 4 Bibles to people in need. Please help us share the joyous Good News with others.

About the Author ()

For over 200 years, the mission of the Maryland Bible Society (MBS) has been to see that every individual has an opportunity to own a Bible regardless of their native language or financial situation. Here in Maryland this mission has been mostly fulfilled. We now are turning our emphasis to encouraging and helping people read, understand and live out the truths and principles God has given us through His Holy Scriptures. As a non-denominational ministry, MBS is uniquely positioned to offer God’s Word without note or comment to Christians from all denominational backgrounds. This position allows us to work with all local Christian churches, serving and assisting them as they follow God’s lead. MBS has and will continue to establish and build partnerships that promote the distribution of the Bible, supply related sources and provide educational opportunities. Our vision is to ignite fresh passion for God’s Word to be lived out in the daily lives of people in Maryland and the world beyond. God’s Word contains truths that speak to all of the important areas of our lives: family, marriage, work, friendships, finances and parenting. It serves as the ‘road map’ for the often-overwhelming experience of life. It is a comfort, an encouragement, a teacher. It is convicting, edifying and inspiring. The Bible reveals our purpose in life. The Creator of the Universe has given us His Word to guide and direct us as we serve Him and live in the world.

As we embark on this renewed vision, our desire is to impact lives. As God leads us on this great adventure, we invite you to partner with us. Lives will be transformed as the Holy Spirit works through the Scriptures, resources and opportunities provided by MBS. Join us as we ignite fresh passion for God’s Word among individuals, ministries, local Churches, and businesses.
