Is it better to teach a person how to go fishing, or to fish for them?
If we go fishing for someone, they become dependent on us when they need a fish for supper. We gain a skill which allows us to grow in importance. When no one knows how to do what we do and the demand for our craft is strong, our workload increases and can even become overwhelming at times.
For this reason, we prefer to teach others how to do what we do rather than do it all ourselves. When it comes to the MicroBible ministry, we tell all, from how to buy the equipment, all the way down to how to use it and distribute it effectively.
Because there’s such a great need all over the world, God needs as many willing “fishermen” as He can find. The task God gave us is too great to ever try to keep up with it all by ourselves.
Fishing Classes Now Open
When we minister to friends from another country or head overseas to serve Christ, some of them come to us. Some ask for help to obtain MicroBibles in the languages where they serve. Others ask us how to buy and use the equipment necessary to make their own MicroBibles. Our prayer and financial supporters make it possible us to be available to help them out.
As a result, we now have friends distributing MicroBibles in taxis, along the streets, in the marketplaces, etc. This gives them lots of opportunities to share the Good News. As a result, Muslims are listening to the Bible for the first time in a language they can understand.
They can listen in private when no one is around, or as a group, depending on the situation.
They don’t need an internet connection to use His Word. In fact, they don’t even need to know how to read!
From the moment they snap the MicroBible into their phones, they can hear how Jesus died on the cross for their sins and rose again, right from the Gospels or a film of the Life of Jesus.
Behind the scenes: So much more
There is much more going on behind the scenes than what you actually hear about on the news. What God is doing is Good News in the midst of the bad.
