Christian Organization to Distribute Bibles, Discipleship Materials, in Texas

The Bible League International, an evangelical nonprofit ministry aimed at training leaders of various churches, has said it would assist in sharing thousands of Bibles and discipleship literatures to immigrants in areas of Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas.

Apart from training church leaders, the organization, which is based in Crete, Illinois, is focused on preaching the word of God to communities globally. On the International Day of the Bible on November 21, the organization plans to reach out to migrant communities in Texas.

According to Trujillo, the organization will be giving about 500 copies of the Easy-to-Read Version Bible to adults. Children will get more copies. 5,000 evangelical and discipleship materials will also be distributed for the youths.

While speaking with The Christian Post, the regional training director for BLI, Harold Trujillo, said he is confident the DFW metropolitan area is "a key place to work to evangelize to different ethnic groups."

"To reach out to those people who really are in need of help and in need of knowing the Lord Jesus Christ, and especially some of those people who travel from different countries, Dallas has become one of the hubs in the southern belt where the people [are] coming across," Trujillo said.

"Our mission is to engage them with the Bible and use the local churches. And we train the local churches, and we equip them, and we provide them with the materials they need to reach them," he added.

Two local churches with majorly Hispanic congregations with work hand-in-hand with BLI. On November 11 and 13 respectively, both churches will each organize training events respectively.

Trujillo noted that working with the two churches is a means of building relationships with them and sustaining it also. He added they had started the relationship in 2019 but COVID hindered their relationship with the lockdowns which affected the churches and other organizations.

"In order for us to reconnect with them, we started making some meetings with the pastor of this group to [figure] out what their needs are, how we can fulfill the needs of the church in the midst of this pandemic," Trujillo explained.

Trujillo affirmed that fixing the outreach in the same period with the International Day of the Bible was deliberate. He said the intention is "to make the Bible the most important thing in their life."
