A Michigan Christian group sent 27,000 Bibles and Christian books to the country of Albania.
On November 9, the Christian group based in Fowlerville, Michigan, Mission Cry, sent 27,000 Bibles and Christian books to Albania to help build the church. The books cost about $500,000.
To successfully ship the books in the country, the group has to pray earnestly. More than half of the population in Albania practices other religions. Shipping containers carrying Christian books are often examined thoroughly by the authorities.
Bibles to Albania
When Albanian workers see Christian titled books, they often report it to the authorities. According to Jason Woolford, President of the Mission Cry, they had to go through a lot paperwork to proceed to the shipment.
“We had to go through a lot of hoops for documentation, paperwork, and clearing agents so everything was done above and beyond reproach,” Jason said. “They’ll find every undotted ‘i’ or uncrossed ‘t.’ We asked people to pray, and God worked because the container’s clear.”
Today, with God’s help, the people in Albania have received Bibles.
Word of God
Mission Cry was founded in 1956 from a vision Jason received from God. In his vision, he saw Christians wearing the full armor of God but still losing the battles. God then revealed the meaning of that vision.
“They didn’t have the shield of faith or the sword of the Word of God,” Woolford said. “If people don’t have the Word of God, it’s impossible for them to have the shield and the sword.”
Thus, the Mission Cry was established to help believers become equipped with the Word of God. For 64 years of serving God’s people, they were now able to distribute over $380 million worth of Bibles and Christian books to 178 countries.
