Word in Action

We’re bringing the Bible to life. Read all about it in Word in Action, our magazine produced three times a year. It’s full of inspiring stories from around the world.

In this issue …

  • Celebrate Bible Sunday with us
  • ​The blessing of literacy classes in Malawi
  • Bible work at risk in 88 nations

In this time of difficult news, we pray you find encouragement by reading Word in Action. This edition is purposefully packed with good news, shining a light on the tremendous impact of your support.

We challenge you to read Loveness’ story on pages 4–5, for example, and not feel your spirits lift. She recently learned to read in our literacy class in Malawi, and her warm smile on the cover of the magazine shows her joy at finally being able to read the Bible.

On pages 10–11 discover the huge range of Christmas resources available to you and your church. The season might look a bit different this year – but we can still celebrate God’s great gift to us!

And on pages 6–7 see how you’ve helped keep Bible work alive in 2020, reaching many families with practical and spiritual support. We’ve been overwhelmed by the generosity of people like you in recent months. It’s truly amazing to see how much this mission means to you.

If you would like to receive Word in Action by post, please sign up here. We'll send it to you three times a year – at no cost – and we'll include our prayer diary Prayer in Action so you can join us in praying for our work around the world.
