How Love Packages Began

God spoke to our founder, Steve Schmidt, one day about “wasting” some Christian literature that was sitting around his home. When he wrote to a few pastors and evangelists overseas, asking if they could use English literature, the response was definitive.

Over the past 40+ years, the ministry has grown and now we ship over 1000 tons of used, donated bibles and other Christian literature overseas every year.
