Meet Andrew,
from Ghana, West Africa 

Andrew contacted us through Facebook and said he was in need of a Bible. Our social media team worked with our mission team to send Andrew a Bible. This is a picture of Andrew with his new Bible in hand!


How we thank God for these new opportunities to reach and encourage believers around the world through all areas of our Media Ministries ... Internet and Social Media and Television Broadcast media.
