Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
The church in Syria has had a vision of having one copy of the word of God reaching each individual in their country. In the beginning of this vision, the church was praying for 5,000 New Testament copies. They knew it was impossible, but they sought God in prayers. One day in a prayer meeting, an elderly believer stopped and said, “Why do we only pray for 5,000, when our God can give us 10,000? Don’t we worship a mighty God?” People laughed as it seemed impossible enough to get 5,000 copies, but to get 10,000… well, that’s a dream. But they figured, “Why not!” and prayed for 10,000. Shortly after, the head pastor receives a call that a shipment of 17,000 New Testaments was going to Iraq and they rerouted it. The man asked, “Will you use it in Syria?” The pastor shouted, “Hallelujah!!!”
Since then, the church received a permit to print bibles inside the country, and have been doing so for over a decade. The church has printed hundreds of thousands of bibles and given them out. What was a small dream turned into a big revival. From Syria many bibles have traveled and reached the surrounding countries, even countries that will cut the hands off its citizens if they find a bible in their hand. Lives have turned to Jesus and testimonies come back speaking of God’s faithful word bringing His truth and changing hearts from stone to flesh Ezekiel 11:19.
The church, by faith, continues in its mission to make sure that the word of God is available, reaching people who have not read it before and encouraging them to value this wonderful gift of God.
