John Newton on the history of mankind:

“Without the clue and the light which the Word of God affords—the history of mankind, of any, of every age, only presents to view—a labyrinth and a chaos; a detail of wickedness and misery to make us tremble; and a confused jumble of interfering incidents, as destitute of stability, connection, or order—as the clouds which fly over our heads.

But with the Scripture key—all is plain, all is instructive. Then I see, truly there is a God, who governs the earth, who pours contempt upon princes, takes the wise in their own craftiness, over-rules the wrath and pride of man to bring his own designs to pass, and restrains all that is not necessary to that end; blasting the best concerted enterprises at one time, by means apparently slight, and altogether unexpected, and at other times producing the most important events from instruments and circumstances which are at first thought too feeble and trivial to deserve notice.“

We had a great weekend at Westminster’s Mission Conference which included seeing author, Katie Zappitella, and illustrator, Penn Tomassetti. Katie’s book, Beautiful Feet Upon the Mountains, is now available in family format. Penn’s artwork is profiled in our visualized hymn, This Is My Father’s World, and is now available in print too. We are blessed by this congregation’s many investments in the work of Helping Children See Jesus!

We connected via Zoom this am with our partners in Mongolia, Mickey and Trina Cofer. Friends, this dear brother and sister have been laboring for years with coworkers to supply 600+ Mongolian churches with our entire 312 Bible lesson series. All has been translated. New Testament lessons printed. What remains is the Old Testament lessons. Production cost will total around $48,000. We share their desire to supply these sets to these churches by Christmas of 2022.

Got to stop by Treasures of Grace Homeschool Co-op today and see them sharing the John Newton story in their elementary chapel time. The PowerPoint format is perfect for this kind of setting. It’s a great time to share this story as Newton wrote the words to Amazing Grace 250 years ago this year. It was introduced on New Years Day 1773.

Pray for the Girwanauths, our ministry partners in Guyana, South America. We supplied them with over 500 printed Bible lessons books in the fall while they were stateside. The materials were going to be shared by 20 churches in the country. However, these and other supplies were lost in a container port fire this month.

They are unsure if the port will cover any of the loss. Either way, we are going to get replacements ready. If you would like to help, you can donate towards our Helen Odenwelder mission fund which is used for needs such as this. https://biblevisuals.org/product/donation-product/

Rebecca "Becky" Forwood Nicholson Obituary - Visitation & Funeral Information

Our dear friend, Becky Nicholson is enjoying the presence of the Savior she so often rejoiced in here on earth. Becky served in our office for several years and was often the friendly voice of BVI heard by ministry partners when they called the office. Our staff recalled that those conversations often resulted in new friendships as Becky’s love for the Lord and others was evident in her word and deeds. We give thanks that the Lord allowed us to serve alongside her in helping children see Jesus.

Share Memories & Support the Family.

We’re testing our Print-on-demand format of certain item using our new printer! Thought it would be appropriate to use this illustration of William Tyndale who thought about the importance of content AND formats. Did you know that Tyndale’s first printing of the New Testament was printed in octavo format? That allowed 16 pages to be printed on one folded sheet of paper and resulted in a small enough book that could be easily hidden since these bibles were considered illegal. They were smuggled into England in cotton bales. #WilliamTyndale

BVI will be the guest on tomorrow's Ministry Focus. Please tune in at 10:30am or follow the link to listen to the podcast.
BVI .hello
In organizing and downsizing my Child Evangelism Fellowship materials, I was surprised to find a copy of the hymn ONE DAY from 1968 from BVI. I loved this song as a kid and look forward to sharing it in the CEF clubs in the future. This is the only one that I have found so far but I had it professionally laminated to preserve it and look forward to using it in the near future. Thank you for all you do.
