In Malawi many local churches realised that there was very little interaction with the Bible at a family level. Many families cannot afford a Bible, let alone a children's Bible or study materials.
Wanting to change this, local churches came together and reached out to the Bible society of Malawi, asking them to create a resource which would help the whole family engaged with God's Word.
As a result of this, the Bible Society of Malawi came up with the Family Scripture Engagement Packs project. These free packs contain a Bible, children’s Bible and a Bible reading guide. These packs are specially tailored so that members of the family of all ages are able to engage more with God's Word.
This project has been a real blessing throughout 2020, as the COVID-19 pandemic meant churches had to close and that home became the only place for people to worship. Having these packs has been a real encouragement to Christian families all over Malawi, allowing them to continue to study the Bible despite not being able to meet in a church setting.
There are still many families waiting to receive a Scripture Engagement Pack through this project. Please join us in praying for this project as they work throughout 2021 to provide families with Scripture.
