Bible Smuggling Experience - PLANNING MEETING - Wednesday, August 5 @ 6pm - Conference Room A & B
This meeting is only for those who wish to help with this event as countries, tour guides, border guards, registration team, etc.
What is the Bible Smuggling Experience? It’s an EXPERIENCE that will simulate what it is like for the real people who risk their lives every day to be Christians (ie: smuggle Bibles) into countries where being a Christian is illegal. Students from K-12th Grade will form teams. Adult “tour guides” will take them through 10 countries (which will be set-up throughout our church grounds) while trying to "smuggle" Bibles. Border Patrol will be on the prowl too. The team with the most Bibles at the end of the experience, wins! Some countries considered "closed" have laws prohibiting possession of a Bible or being a Christian. Missionary here to speak during worship on Sun, Sept 13 @10am.
BIBLE SMUGGLING EXPERIENCE - Saturday, September 12 @7:30pm - Holy Cross Lutheran Church - 2711 Helena Avenue - Nederland, Texas
HELP NEEDED: While this event will not take place until September and because of the delicacy of this topic we would like for families and individuals to have the next month and a half to research their country (closed countries will receive a book with details and the countries history) and make preparations so this experience can be a life-changing experience for all. We are looking for families and individuals who would sponsor certain countries. Countries: Germany (Taken), Philippines, China, Colombia, Iran, Egypt, India, Italy, Vietnam, England, North Korea (Taken), Sudan, Japan (Taken) - We will also be in need of Adult Tour Guides, Registration Team, Border Guards, “behind the scenes” crew.
