Through God’s unending grace, the fruit of our efforts to sow the seeds of truth across Eastern Europe is flourishing. But the fight is long from over. The evil one continues to sow seeds of godlessness in an attempt to undo God’s work.
Together we must push forward to advance the Gospel. You can sow God’s Word alongside us through Million Dollar Sunday (MDS), EEM’s annual fundraising campaign. This year, our goal is to raise $2.3 million to distribute Bibles and Bible-based materials to 29 countries in 20 languages – free of charge.
Among these 29 countries, God has revealed a number of unique opportunities to get involved in what He is doing:
EEM will also continue to provide Bibles and materials for refugees.
We have already seen a great increase in 2017, with 570,398 Bibles and Bible-based materials distributed in the first six months alone. At this rate, EEM is expected to hit one million in annual book distribution, exceeding the annual distribution totals for 2013, 2014 and 2015.
Throughout the years, MDS has been instrumental in the successful implementation of various projects to give the Bible to the lost. One recent testimony to the impact of the campaign comes from Slovenia, where 50,000 copies of the first modern adaptation of the original Dalmatin New Testament were distributed to schools, libraries and citizens in Slovenia. EEM’s Vice President of European Operations, Bart Rybinski, presented the first copies of these books to Slovenian President, Borut Pahor.
“EEM is excited to be part of this effort to bring back the Word of God to the people of
Slovenia, to enable Slovenian passion and love for reading God’s word in their modern
language,” Rybinski shared. “We can’t wait to see how God will change lives in this beautiful country.”
Another inspiring story comes from Croatia, where a two-year journey of bringing modern translated Croatian Bibles to schools came to fruition. EEM was able to secure approval from the Vatican to print and distribute Bibles without the apocryphal books of the Old Testament. This was the first time in Croatia’s history to get approval to print the Bible this way. EEM made these Bibles easily available to many churches in the region— reaching more people.
