Bibles for poor nigerians

I've got this letter and it could be deleted as spam just in a moment but I doubted that don't see any money request or similar in this letter so decided to read it more carefully. Finally I was emaized that these people don't ask any money or other valueable stuff but just... a bible... May be the massage is to reach some compassionate people who having this read will decide to send some money by their own wish to poor but "fully committed followers of Jesus Christ" people of Nigeria...
Anyway unfortunately I don't have a possiblity to find bibles in English in Ukraine to would just share this information to let people who are able to get such literature know and decide if it is noteworthy.

Dear friend in Christ,

Greetings in Jesus lovely name. I read about you online and thank God for meeting you and knowing about you. I pray my message finds you doing well in Christ.

 

By His grace I’m a pastor in God’s vineyard. I was born-again in July  of 1985 at the age of twenty-three and married the same year and have  been blessed to see God work in many different ways for the last 27  years by the grace of God. My wife Helen and I are blessed with six  children. I have a certificate in College of Education and I teach as an  occupation in a primary school. My wife works at home for the children.  We are not rich in the things of this world but blessed in Christ. I was  called into the ministry in 2007 while still in another State. We moved  into Benin  December 2010. When we came in here there was no  single church in my quarters. My family and I would move 20 kilometers  to fellowship in another church. Because it was raining season most  times we would be unable to go to fellowship then we resulted to having  a fellowship in my sitting room. After three weeks of fellowship three  neighbours joined and then more and more people came in. We had about 12  persons in six weeks, it was then I had the calling to start a church  and we moved into a rented car park. In another three months the  fellowship grew to 20 and above. Today there are between 45 and fifty  members in the church. The name of the church is Believers Bible Church.

 

I have dedicated this ministry to reach unbelievers with the gospel of  Jesus Christ, teach people to become fully committed followers of Jesus  Christ through discipleship, and to help people build healthy and healed  families based on biblical values and principles. Most people here are  from disjointed polygamous family background and hence the need to teach  and focus on Christ based families. Matthew 6:33 is a powerful scripture  in my life. When I trust God enough to pursue His will for my life  first, everything else follows!

 

My major purpose of writing is to seek your help in the area of God’s  word the bible. We have many in our church mostly the elderly ones who  do not have bibles and cannot afford them. I am seeking your help for  12 Super Giant Print Bibles King James in English for such ones, even if they are  used bibles. I seek also for my personal use a good Study Bible  preferably Dake or Thompson Chain Reference Bible or any other study  Bible you know can be of blessing to me. This is our need and nothing  else. You can send this to us through the post office. Insured mail would be better and safer. My postal  address is 17 Uwaze, Gplo  3266, Benin City, 3001, Edo State,  Nigeria.

 

We would be delighted to have you come to visit us, as much would be  accomplished for the Lord in our working together. Write soon and God  bless you.

 

Yours in Christ,

Canola Izebiakor
