The Polish site goes live

The Polish site goes live

5 January 2021
Wiesław, a Christian working in Poland has been translating our Bible stories to be used in Christian services and youth outreach camps there. When Poland went into coronavirus lock-down in April 2020 he assembled a team to work from home to accelerate this work. Should we develop a Polish site to host these? After all aren’t there languages such as Hindi, Spanish and Portuguese with massive populations we should prioritise first? Then a small gift of 100 złoty arrived from someone in Poland – the first donation ever from that land. We viewed that gift as the ‘widow’s mite’ and have moved forward in faith to develop a Polish site. The site, Bibliawobrazach is now live with over 400 Bible story sets in Polish with another 200 stories to go online soon. We thank God for all the hard work by the team in Poland and here in the UK to make this possible. God provided all we needed!

The Romanian site goes live

The Romanian site goes live

15 December 2020
For many years a Romanian Christian woman called Tunde has been translating our Bible stories into Romanian. Last year we were pondering and praying whether to create a Romanian version of our site to host them. Just then an unexpected gift of £300 arrived from someone we did not know but had a heart to share the gospel with the people of ... guess where? ... Romania! So we decided to take a step of faith and go ahead. The site, Bibliainimagini, was launched in September 2020. God provided everything we needed!

Supporting live broadcasts and online media

Supporting live broadcasts and online media

November 2020
So how do you reach families at home during the coronavirus shut-down? We were able to make all our images available to those setting up non-commercial live broadcasts and online videos. Over the last few weeks on public channels such as YouTube, plus church and school websites, thousands of people have posted Bible story videos in many languages. From a sample of 30 of these we calculated the average number of viewers for each video to be 516 people with the numbers increasing each day. We are so pleased to support this creativity.

One thousand Bible story sets now online

One thousand Bible story sets now online

July 2020
In June 2020 we launched our 1,000th set of Free Bible story images. When the project started 10 years ago it took 18 months to get our first story online and we struggled to find more. So to reach a thousand stories in ten years is a great testimony of God’s help and provision coupled with a lot of hard work and perseverance. Once online a story is freely available all around the world and is a wonderful legacy for this generation and those to follow.

The coronavirus shutdown opens new opportunities

The coronavirus shutdown opens new opportunities

June 2020
In mid-March 2020, as many regions of the world went into lock-down due to the coronavirus, we had a sudden loss of 16% of our visitors. Two weeks later, as churches and schools wrestled with the problem of how best to communicate to people at home, we had a sudden increase, new visitors rose by 65%. So, in this time of shut-down, new opportunities to help Bible teachers have opened up. So many are finding our Bible story images helpful as they broadcast live online church services and lessons.
