Our Lord lives
On the first day of this month, we commemorate the resurrection of our Lord. It is the day when Christians worldwide greet each other with the words, “He has risen, he has risenindeed.” We know our Lord lives.
This biblical truth is the core of faith for Christians in our country, in Africa and the rest of the world. We worship a living God. The Bible tells us more about this.
This biblical truth is also applicable in our neighbouring countries: Botswana, Lesotho, Namibia and Swaziland. Therefore, this project to help them with the task of providing Bibles is so important. These Bible Societies may be struggling financially, but their task remains to place the Bible in the hands of their people.
Organised Bible work in these countries was initiated by the Bible Society of South Africa and some of our languages are also spoken in these countries, for example, Afrikaans in Namibia, Sesotho in Lesotho, Setswana in Botswana and Siswati in Swaziland.
By providing Bibles to these Bible Societies as affordably as possible, we help them in the execution of their task.

- sufficient Bibles to be able to provide for their needs.
