Children Raise Money For Bibles in India

November 01, 2002 | Susan Hall

Children at the Medford, Ore., Adventist Church are mission-minded, and when they learned that Bibles were needed in India, they planned an event to raise money.

Hosting a “Family Night at the Movies,” the children and their dedicated teachers set up chairs, picked out the movie, and collected admission ($1.74, the cost of one Bible).

By the end of the evening, counting income from snacks sold during intermission, the Sabbath school classes were able to present a total of $497 to Bruce Johnston, who will lead five outreach teams to India. The money will buy more than 280 Bibles, in the language of the people. •
