By popular demand, we provide God’s Word to the refugees in Europe and villages in the Sahara Desert. We do this through MicroBibles and Bible translation.
What are “MicroBibles”?
Think of it as the essentials of the Christian faith on a 4 Gb SD card!
On each MicroBible, here is what you’ll find:
† An audio New Testament
† A video about Jesus’ life on earth
† Christian radio programs
† A readable copy of the Bible (usually in pdf format)
†Christian praise music
Almost every home in Africa or refugee in Europe has a cellphone. When you place one of these MicroBibles into a phone, the owner and their family are able to listen to God’s Word when it is safe to do so, and without detection.
In places where there is no cellphone coverage, we bring SD Card players with us. This allows the entire village to gather each night to hear God’s Word!
Eternal Hope for Refugees and Desert Villages
Our MicroBibles are in high demand in countries where a Bible is difficult to obtain. In these communities with constant surveillance, MicroBibles discreetly provide all of the essentials they need to find hope and salvation in Christ.
Through these SD Cards, our prayer warriors and donors are providing them the help and encouragement they need.
In addition, Desert Springs Ministries International (or DSMI) is focusing on the following projects:
¤ We prepare MicroBibles for the new languages which have requested them
¤ We are preparing to publish 20+ Bible booklets in a language of the Sahara Desert
¤ With the help of members of our Chadian home church, we are translating a Children’s Bible Storybook into French
¤ We are preparing to produce a Jesus Film
Thank you so much for your prayers and gifts, which make these projects possible!
At this time, Desert Springs is running under budget. Until this need is met, we have to spend a significant portion of our week on fundraising activities.
To meet our budget, we only need to raise just $856 more/month in new donations. This adds up to only $10,272 over twelve months, or $28.12 a day! When this happens, we will be free to devote the entire week to these projects.
Our Partnership With You
And so, Partnership Plus members are more like friends and coworkers serving together. It takes both of us to bring MicroBibles to those who don’t have access to God’s Word.
When you join our team of Desert Springs Partners with a monthly gift of $17 or more (or an annual gift of $200 or more), this is what you will receive:
• Since Desert Springs is a 501(c)(3) charity recognized by the IRS, you will receive tax credit for your donation and valid receipts.
• You will also receive our regular prayer letter to let you know what your gifts are accomplishing,
• along with exclusive updates of what Desert Springs is getting done because of your partnership. We send these out via email or SMS, depending on what you prefer.
• We will also send you a copy of The Modern Wycliffe New Testament (click here to learn more).
• Most of all, you will know that your support frees us up to bring the Bible to those who don’t yet have access to it.
