Love Packages: Nonprofit Highlight
I go thrift shopping a lot.
Every time I go, I have to check out the book section. It is basically a requirement whenever I enter a thrift store.
I see bibles nearly every time I shop. The "christian living section" is usually overflowing with workbooks, small group booklets, journals, bible lesson books, etc. They are just sitting there collecting dust.
Wouldn't it be great if there were some way to donate all of your old bible study books to a worthy cause?
Well there is! The answer is: lovepackages.org
Love Packages is a nonprofit based out of Decatur, AL with tons of satellite locations (Tuscaloosa, Pinson, etc.)
The website has testimonies, ways to donate, volunteer opportunities and other resources!
"Love Packages is fueling international missions work and sending the gospel to the ends of the earth by putting donated bibles and other Christian literature into the hands of people around the world."
Help advance the kingdom by donating new or used Christian literature, bibles and even DVDs!
"One donated bible can fuel an entire church."

What an amazing way to share the Word of God to people across the world, as well as donate literature that would otherwise be sitting on your shelf at home. Everyone deserves access to the bible and we are called to share in the wonderful gift of the Gospel. We forget how lucky we are to have unlimited access, and numerous ways to read the bible. Some people in the world have never even seen the Word of God in their own language.
