You can donate bibles, of course, but that’s not all! One of the most common questions we hear is, “What kinds of materials do you send overseas?”
Items You Can Donate
If what you have falls under any of these categories, feel free to send it to us.
New or used, any translation, New Testaments or other portions, individual gospel booklets
Dictionaries, Bible dictionaries, concordances, commentaries, etc.
All Christian books – adult or children, non-fiction
Any devotionals or magazine from a Christian publisher
Adult quarterlies and all teacher manuals in any amount from all publishers; children’s quarterlies with the teacher’s manual and full student manuals.
Music, movies, teaching from well known speakers (Billy Graham, Swindoll, etc.)
Bible games, biblical puzzles – anything that helps teach the gospel, especially to children
Still not sure? We essentially have two criteria for deciding what material we accept: Something that will lead someone to faith in Christ and/or something that will disciple a believer. If your material does one of those things, send it.
Items We Do Not Use
Save yourself some postage and do not send these types of items:
- Handiwork or busy papers from Sunday School materials
- Secular books (other than dictionaries)
- Missions magazines
