The Message of the cross is contained in the Bible.
“For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.” (I Corinthians 1:18)
Forgotten Man Ministries has placed thousands upon thousands of Bibles and New Testaments into the hands of inmates over these past many years. Over the past 10 years or so, the local Gideon camps have been instrumental in assisting us with providing Bibles to hand out to inmates.
We distribute both the Gideon Bibles and the pocket Testaments. The New Testaments are handed out to inmates upon request after the gospel has been preached to them. We give out over 100 a month to inmates just in the intake area alone.
To the resident inmates, we provide a complete (prison edition) Gideon’s Bible upon written request from the inmate. These Bibles correlate well with the Forgotten Man Ministries correspondence Bible study materials that we provide to inmates as well. We give out 75 to 100 (plus) each month to inmates seeking God or becoming Bible students.
Local church and individual help is needed to purchase these Bibles. Make your donation to the Gideon’s address below and earmark them for the Genesee County Jail.
The cost for a case of 25 full bibles is $118.75. The cost for a case of 100 pocket New Testaments is $140.00.
If you are able to help the Gideons help us, either on a short term basis or even several times a year, we really appreciate this consideration.
Please mail your donation to:
The Gideon’s International, P.O. Box 6 Davison, MI 48423
Any questions concerning the purchase of Gideon’s (prison edition) full Bibles or pocket New Testaments may be directed to: Mr. Ken Larke, Treasurer (Gideon’s International) (810) 441-7779
Thank you for your help as we reach the lost in Jesus’ Name.
