MILITARY BIBLE STICK PROJECT

Across the USA, churches, radio stations, TV stations, and people like you are standing strong with our military, showing support and spreading God’s Word to those in harm’s way.  Through Faith Comes By Hearing’s Military BibleStick project, our nation’s troops are hearing the Word of God while on (or preparing for) deployment.  The Military BibleStick is a digital audio player that is pre-loaded with a dramatized recording of the entire New Testament.  Each BibleStick includes a response card offering FREE Audio Drama Bibles to loved ones at home.  Chaplains from every branch of the military are flooding Faith Comes By Hearing with requests.  More than 340,000 of these Audio Bibles are now in the field.  Over 1,325 chaplains use Military BibleSticks in pre-deployment briefings, counseling sessions, Bible studies, weekly chapels and other spiritual services.  A donation of $25 sponsors one soldier and his or her family.

ZOE

ZOE Children’s Homes is committed to caring for orphans or victims of other heinous crimes and abuse and rescuing children who are at-risk of being sold into slavery or have already been sold.  Each year, 800,000 souls are trafficked across the international borders.  This is a growing global problem of epidemic proportions.  Not one inhabited continent is untouched by it including the United States.  Statistics show that 80% of those who are trafficked are females and more devastatingly enough, 50% are children!  ZOE Children’s Homes exist to combat the trafficking of children globally, especially in the sex trade, and provide shelters as well as a loving home to these orphans and children who have been abused or are at-risk of any crime against them so that they can have life again.  ZOE is the Greek word for “LIFE”
