The Chinese brother was arrested for the sake of the gospel in the 1990's. During his time in prison, his family continued to keep their home open as a meeting place for believers. When he was released, he came back to a hungry and growing house church. But the Bible that he had was in tatters and barely held together, it was not really even usable any longer. He often prayed for a new one. God answered his prayer - he received a new Bible through Voice of the Martyr's Bibles Unbound project, and was overjoyed!
Many Bible school students in China also receive Bibles through Bibles Unbound. These young people in their are in their 20s, and have no Bibles of their own, a common situation in China.
One young woman from a Chinese minority group was very excited to get a Bible, because in her church, only leaders have the chance to have a Bible.
Another person from a house church thanked the Lord. "God prepared us to receive you gift. His timing is always perfect. The last time we came together we discussed how we could possibly get Bibles. We had been praying a now we can see that God answered our prayer. We can see God's amazing Power."
