All around the world, wherever you may travel, there is a good chance you will find a Bible in the nightstand of your hotel room. Whether you forgot your own and you are in need of the good Word or you have never before opened it to read the powerful stories within, you can rest assured knowing exactly where to find one.
Have you ever wondered where this phenomenon began? Going back to the early 1900s, a US-based evangelical Christian organization known as “Gideons International” founded their mission in Bible distribution throughout over 200 countries. The Gideons print and supply Bibles for hotels, free of charge, in the millions. According to the organization, the connection to Gideon is described in the short excerpt below:
“Gideon was a man who was willing to do exactly what God wanted him to do, regardless of his own judgment as to the plans or results. Humility, faith, and obedience were his great elements of character… to be ready to do God’s will at any time, at any place, and in any way that the Holy Spirit leads”
Today, hotels worldwide are known for having the holy scriptures available to all guests. With the amazing team and partners of The Bible for All Mission, the city of Bayelsa is now blessed with the Word of God in 35 hotels! There have been countless testimonies over the more recent 100 years of God revealing Himself to travelers along their journey, and now, The Bible for All Mission is a contributor to this great move of God.
Traveling can be lonely and unpredictable. For some, the Bible in the bedside table is the most reliable thing one can count on during their trip. The Rhapsody Bible is full of wisdom and is sure to comfort any traveler that may be passing through and needing to hear some truth.
Together with the Chris Oyakhilome Foundation International and Rhapsody Bible partners in Christ Embassy Bayelsa, The Bible for All Mission was able to successfully distribute Rhapsody Bibles in every hotel room across these 35 hotels! God has richly blessed all partners that made this happen with resources and, most importantly, with great faith to continue sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ with the world.
