Charity smuggles Bibles to Christian pastors in North Africa

Americans who aren’t on the mission field have trouble understanding the complexities that come along with getting Bibles to those who need them most.

But Open Doors, a charity that serves persecuted Christians worldwide, not only understands, but is making great strides.

According to a new Christianity Today report, Open Doors has successfully smuggled Bibles and training materials to pastors in a North African country where persecution is intense.

"There are church leaders who only have a few pages of scripture that they own," said an unnamed UK female volunteer, who must remain anonymous for security purposes. She recently took more than 30 Bibles and other Christian books into the country, where it is against the law to print and distribute Christian literature.

"The church is growing so rapidly and people are just coming to know Jesus so quickly, they need to get Bibles in as quickly as they can and as many as they can. And not just Bibles, but also training materials for pastors and church leaders,” she explained to Christianity Today.

In addition to hand-delivering much-needed Bibles and other materials, Open Doors has also reportedly established a 24/7 prayer meeting since 2003, which some local Christians have linked to miraculous events.

Some of those involved believe God is indeed favoring the effort.

On a recent trip, when the volunteer Bible smuggler went through airport security, they checked every single bag except hers—where the Bibles were stored.

"Maybe God just did what he did with Brother Andrew and 'blinded their eyes' to it. It was amazing that we were the only ones who didn't get searched," she said.

Making the Holy Bible available to these North African Christians is not without risks. If locals are found with a Bible, they could be facing, at minimum, two whole years in prison.
