This summer our ministry partners in Canada will be using true story of christian businessman Tony Rossi as they reach almost 7000 children with the Gospel. We’d like to provide them with the illustrations in full color and we need your help. Graphic artist Sam Laterza is hard at work on the project already and we need $2500 to cover the costs.
BVI is introducing a new training arm of the ministry to help equip the church in evangelizing and disciplining of children. An Audio/visual studio at the headquarters will serve as the communications channel for this training through recorded and live workshops along with relevant interviews.
Club DJ is a mid-week Bible club curriculum put together by our ministry partners, Jerry and Sharon Durston. These materials fully incorporate BVI Bible lesson, stories and songs. The Durston’s have the unique opportunity to launch these clubs in 50 house churches in Cuba in the fall of 2019. Each church needs a club sponsorship. Can you help?
David Brainerd only lived 29 short years and much of that time was filled with disappointment, discouragement, doubts and physical sickness, yet God used this weak vessel to bring the Gospel to Indian tribes and to inspire future generations of missionaries. Now we want to bring this story to children.
Elinor Young was diagnosed with polio as a young girl. Despite her physical limitations she felt the Lord calling her to serve as a missionary in a foreign field. She would eventually go to Irian Jaya, Indonesia. There she lived among the Kimyal tribe and helped translate the New Testament into their language. In a beautiful display of God’s glory, God used her “bad legs” to show the greatness of God’s love for the Kimyal people. Now, we’d like to share that story with children around the world.
The True Colors Project was initiated in 2003, with the goal to enhance the effectiveness of BVI’s publications through adding full color and improved teaching resources. This is a major undertaking as there are over 3,000 illustrations in 78 Visualized Bible volumes, 32 stories and 22 hymns. The original line art for each title has been scanned so that it can be updated using the computer (“going digital”). The corresponding teaching material has been typeset and is in various stages of editing: having additional corresponding resources such as review questions, student activities and keyword sheets developed.
Project Status: Old Testament Volumes 4 & 5 on the life of Joseph have recently been colorized and reprinted as part of this project. However, there is still much more work to be done!
