What does Hope Aglow do with $5.00?

  Psalm 102: 18-22

Let this be written for a future generation,
   that a people not yet created may praise the LORD:
 “The LORD looked down from his sanctuary on high,
   from heaven he viewed the earth,
to hear the groans of the prisoners
   and release those condemned to death.”
So the name of the LORD will be declared in Zion
   and his praise in Jerusalem
when the peoples and the kingdoms
   assemble to worship the LORD.

Bibles developed especially for incarcerated men and women.
 Developed in conjunction with Prison Fellowship, these paperback Bibles and New Testaments are powerful tools for prison ministry. We hand these out for free to anyone that requests a Bible. Sadly, they must first be requested by filling out a form which is given to a volunteer coordinator, who in turn passes the request along to us.

A prayer request for all men and women in prison is to have free access to these materials. We cannot carry an armload of Bibles into jail and walk up and down the cell block handing out Bibles. Those days are gone.
Fortunately, prisoners may still request a Bible, and we are blessed to have the resources to purchase and hand them out. Thanks for your donations. They mean so much. A Bible is a most precious possession.
