Bibles for Haiti

As I was sitting in church one Sunday, the pastor asked if anyone had a Haitian Creole Bible to read from the pulpit.  Only two people, out of the more than 200 people there, had a Bible.  They had not left them at home.  They did not own a Bible.  The average wage for a Haitian is $1,200 per year.  Each Haitian Creole Bible costs $12.  That is 12% of one month’s wage.  The average American wage is $48,000.  An equivalent price for a Bible would be $480.  Americans can buy a Bible for $1.  As I thought about the cost of a Bible for a Haitian, I felt the need for us to provide God’s Word for people that are truly interested in living their lives for the Lord.

2 Timothy 2:15, “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth."

How can they correctly handle the Word of God if they don’t even have it available to read?  My goal for 2013 is to give at least 200 Bibles to Haitians that have memorized 9 key Bible verses.  If they take the time to memorize these verses, I know that they are truly interested in learning more about the Lord.  Please join me in giving Haitians the opportunity to read and study the Word of God.  How can you help?

  1. Memorize the 9 key Bible verses yourself.                                                          Hiding God’s Word in your heart is a great gift to give yourself.
  2. Donate $12 for each Bible you wish to give.                                                         Click here to donate.  or go to
 Please email us to let us know how many Bibles you have donated.                                                                        Click here to email.
