This morning Moody Bible Institute's Dr. Jim Coakley joins us for a time of Bible Q&A.
Plus, The Christian Post recently related a very cool story: A container packed with Bibles and books to help build up the Body of Christ in Albania arrived a few weeks ago. The 27,000 books in the container cost an estimated half a million dollars. To ship the container into the majority-Muslim country, the ministry that sent them had to carefully navigate a ton of bureaucracy. You see.. a little over half of Albanians are Muslim… and when Muslim workers unloading containers spot Christian book titles, they often notify authorities, who fight the shipment with paperwork. Mission Cry is a part of Christian Resources International. In the organization’s 64 years of service, it’s gifted over $375 million in Bibles and books to 178 nations. Exciting stuff!! Mission Cry’s President Rev. Jason Woolford joins us in the 8 am ET hour.
