I have also been wanting to give an update and share some very exciting news with you all... If you remember, when we started Bibles for Babies, the big picture was to get these bibles into the hands of each newborn and their caregiver. We have been giving them to preschools, pregnancy centers, health centers, resource centers, etc. Our goal was to get them into hospitals so that each newborn would go home with the Word of God. WE DID IT! A local hospital allowed us to give them the baby bibles as a donation and put them in the crib of each maternity room for every baby born at the hospital. Such an answer to prayer! Of course, if the mother doesn't wish to take the bible home, they aren't forced to. If you are local then you know of Firelands Regional Medical Center. We hope to spread this ministry to other surrounding hospitals!
The hospital agreed to give them out as donated bibles at the beginning of August. God sent us just the right people to make this happen. But, we still need help. Giving out this many bibles each year to one hospital alone is very costly. We have been fortunate enough to use a lot of the money raised at Calvin's birthday event to cover the bibles so far. We now need other ways for these bibles to be funded. If you are part of a church and think this ministry is something they would consider being a part of or donating to, please reach out to your pastor/leader! My mom is willing to speak at churches or events about our story and the ministry. If your company or organization would like to pledge any donation in helping us continue keeping these bibles in the hospitals then please reach out to us! No donation it too small. Last year we had a company give us their office change jar from the year- which was awesome. Another company gave us the money accumulated from paying $1 to wear jeans on Fridays. We were so thankful for those contributions and they helped buy a lot of bibles. God is doing amazing things and I am just here to share His truth with others and honor my son. If you feel called to join us in this journey please do so!
"But be sure to fear the Lord and serve him faithfully with all your heart; consider what great things he has done for you."
1 Samuel 12:24
Thank you all for your support and prayers.
