CBS Rushes Free Booklets and Scripture Selections to Support Disaster-Affected Caribbean Countries
TORONTO, Thursday, September 28, 2017 – The Canadian Bible Society is pleased to announce that we will be sending free booklets and Scripture Selections to the Eastern Caribbean over the next few weeks. These Scripture Selections have been developed to bring healing and comfort, especially focusing on those who are suffering directly from the aftermath of the recent hurricane disasters.
As requested from the Bible Society in the East Caribbean serving Dominica, St. Thomas, St. John and Tortola among others, we will be sending 4,000 copies of a special booklet “Words of Comfort” we have produced ‘for such a time as this’, to help in times of crisis and disaster. We will also be sending 2,000 English and 2,000 French copies of the same booklet along with some Scripture Selections to the Bible Society in the Netherlands Antilles which serves several islands who had been on the path of the recent hurricanes Irma and Maria.
CBS has been translating, producing, distributing and engaging people with the Bible and Scriptures since 1804. With offices and Bible Stores established nationally, we are proceeding with the establishment of new Bible Centres in five regions across Canada.
To assist with the distribution efforts of CBS, please donate online at www.biblesociety.ca/donate.
