More Tagalog Bibles needed!

Guus & Annemiek on board handing out Christmas gifts
Dear friends, just a quick note on behalf of seafarer's evangelist Guus Peters. Do you remember that we gave him a gift last September for the purchase of 100 Tagalog Bibles? Well, the Bibles are in great demand among the Philippine sailors, so Guus needs to restock.

Tagalog is the national language of the Philippines and Guus has many contacts with Filipino seafarers. He writes:

The gift of Life!
"Just in the past two weeks I met a captain that gave Bible studies on board and wanted a couple of Bibles. Furthermore, a young Filipino guy who wanted a King James Version (KJV) and a man who had just lost his little child (only one and a half years old) and sought comfort in God's Word."

We support the work among the seafarers and we always enjoy reading the newsletters that Guus & Annemiek send out. Guus is like a father to the sailors who are often away from home for months at the time and he regularly has valuable conversations with them about God and the Bible.

Books, Bibles, DVD's
The Bibles cost EUR 8,50 and Guus wants to order at least one hundred copies; so do the math.

If you have a heart for spreading the good news ... to the ends of the earth, make a donation to St. Traveling Light, Papendrecht, IBAN: NL91RABO0118582275, BIC: RABONL2U. Make sure to mention BIBLES.

We will make sure the money goes to Guus ASAP!
