Zhou, a local preacher in China, drives home the urgency of getting Bibles to people while the door is open. “How can my people grow in their faith unless they have a Bible to read at home?”
Zhou is 77. He lived through the Cultural Revolution when, at times, even displaying a Bible could lead to execution or imprisonment.
Today, sales are controlled but permitted. Millions want the Scriptures, and Zhou said they never have enough Bibles. All he can do is save money and then go to a distant store to buy what he can afford. Then he brings a Bible back to give to someone who is waiting.
“If you give me 500 Bibles, I can give you 500 souls back.”
