Matthew 25. 37-40: Then the righteous will answer him, “Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and gave you food, or thirsty and gave you something to drink? And when was it that we saw you a stranger and welcomed you, or naked and gave you clothing? And when was it that we saw you sick or in prison and visited you?”
And Jesus answered, “Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these, you did it to me.”
There are ministries and individuals who do not have the means to purchase the Scripture materials they need. Many turn to the NH Bible Society for assistance, many others do not know we are here to help. The NHBS needs your help to answer the call of those who come to us and to get the message out that we are here to serve. Please consider becoming a partner with the NHBS. We provide bibles and other materials to prisons and hospitals: to men, women and children newly arrived to our nation: to soldiers serving this country overseas, and to emerging and growing churches. We do so at no or limited cost to those who carry out these necessary ministries. We never profit financially on these materials.
Christ calls us to serve those who are sick, in prison, and strangers to our land. Not all of us are in a position to answer that call directly but all of us can help those who are on the front lines of delivering the Good News to the “least of these.” You can help by making a donation to the NHBS. By partnering with us, you become a partner with those whose ministries directly benefit our communities and our state. Recovery bibles used in prisons and hospitals lead to healthier lives and lowered rates of recidivism. Bibles in other languages improve self-esteem and help teach the English language as many are printed in parallel languages.
Since our founding in 1812, the NHBS has relied on the generosity of those who believe the Good News of Christ makes a difference in the lives of others and in their own life. We invite you to join with the NHBS in getting the word out about us as we continue to get the Word out about Christ. A donation of any size helps and if that is not possible for you, please consider telling others of the ministries at work with the help of the NHBS and encourage them to use our services. And as always, keep us and our partners in your prayers.
