Below are some suggestions for doing Bible drives.
Used Bible Drive Guidelines
Note: Many countries like Pakistan, the Philippines, and much of Africa have large English speaking populations and the demand for Scripture, even pieces of Bibles, is extremely vast. In Africa, Muslims are coming to the Lord by the thousands and the cry for Bibles is great. One minister in Nigeria that wrote asking for Bibles said "Either throwaways, misprints, overruns, discontinued items, ink spots, used, rejects or irregular cuts, etc. We could literally use these materials by the thousands to minister and spread the word of God."

Getting involved with used Bible drives
There are several ways folks throughout the United States can get involved with used Bible drives.
Just start collecting used Bibles from all convenient sources and find individuals and ministries that can use them. Surplus Bibles can be shipped prepaid to several collection centers around the country.
Area wide Bible drives can be sponsored by whoever can muster the resources to promote, collect, go pick up, store, and ship the Bibles.
Many people around the country are now collecting Bibles in good condition and mailing them directly overseas at their own expense. Bible Foundation can provide names and addresses for overseas contacts.
Bible Foundation has sponsored the October Bible Drive since 1992 and many hundreds of people, organizations, and churches promote it and collect many thousands of Scripture volumes. The Bible ministry goes on all the time but the annual emphasis gives a focus for concerted effort.
God is raising people up throughout the country and Bible Foundation is assisting many efforts. Contacts are continually sought with national organizations, churches, and businesses that can help collect and move Bibles throughout the USA. Anyone that can help make strategic contacts is greatly appreciated.
Please pray that God will continue to expand the national network to collect and redistribute Scripture.
