A group of Christians are currently travelling across Algeria, distributing digital Bibles in the local languages. Sometimes they are unable to give the Bibles to specific individuals, so they are using a different approach. "In areas where we can't distribute openly, we found a solution by leaving the materials on a table in coffee shops and on the buses," reports a VOM worker.

Most of the distributed materials are for unbelievers, but the Christians are also providing materials for believers who cannot openly keep Bibles in their homes because of persecution from family members, a common problem among women who convert to Christianity. Church leaders are very grateful that persecuted believers can receive the digital materials for spiritual encouragement.

A few weeks ago, someone called into a Christian TV station saying that he had found one of the digital Bibles on a bus and wanted to know more about Jesus. Thank you for joining us in prayer for this person's salvation, and for the distributed digital Bibles to be used to bring numerous others to a saving faith in Christ.
