A Chinese woman named Yanqui was a Christian for 20 years before she finally received her own Bible. She said, "It's better to read the Bible one time than to listen to a sermon ten times. Getting my first Bible was like getting a key to many locks. Very precious treasure."
The American Bible Society is currently able to put a Bible into the hands of a Chinese believer (or potential believer) for only $1 in a campaign to send 300,000 Bibles to China. What an amazing opportunity to give. If this is something your family would like to consider, go here.
