As we were picking up the books from the press, people began to ask if they could have a copy. We ended up handing out 1000 copies right on the spot. Then, as we stopped at the red light while driving home, we handed a few copies to the people in cars around us. Soon a full bus of passengers caught up with us and the driver said all his passengers wanted a copy. We handed out another 300 copies as we were driving home. The rest of the ten thousand copies were gone in the next couple of days.
In Bolivia, we received a donation of 10,000 copies of “The Perfect Storm is Coming,” a small illustrated summary copy of the Great Controversy. We took boxes of the small booklet to the bus terminal and started handing them out. People crowded around and were actually snatching them out of our hands as we tried to hand them to someone. We experience the same phenomenon while handing out Bibles.
Thanks to the “Bibles for Bolivia” project my wife started and the sacrificial donations received, we have been buying thousands of Bibles from the Bolivia Bible Society at half price and giving them out in communities across the country.
As we realize that these golden days of freedom and opportunity will soon end, we are accelerating the distribution of publications. Every weekend many of our volunteers spread out across the country, visiting city squares and village centers to distribute literature.
In every part of the world there are groups of people looking for answers. Let us make earnest efforts to place answers in their hands. Seize every opportunity. Make every sacrifice to work “while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.” John 9:4.
