In May this year Frontline Ministries (FM’s) set a new record when it delivered 125 000 Bibles and Christian books to the Nuba Mountains where Christians and other groups opposed to Sharia law have suffered years of bombings and food shortages due to scorched earth practices by the Islamic Sudan regime.
According to FM’s Dr Peter Hammond, back in 1998 they delivered the largest shipment of Bibles ever smuggled into an officially Islamic country to that date: 9 700 Bibles and New Testaments in seven different languages.
The 1998 record was broken last year, May 2018, when FM delivered 110 000 Bibles and Christian books (of which over 40 000 were full Bibles). And that record was broken in May, a month after Sudanese dictator Omar al-Bashir was deposed in a coup. Currently, the team is working and planning for an even bigger Bible and Christian textbook shipment to Sudan to be delivered early next year.
This video below focuses on this year’s Bibles delivery, highlighting difficulties and dangers faced in reaching the war-torn Nuba Mountains and inspiring testimonies of what God is doing in spite of vicious persecution.
