The biggest Scripture Blitz that Australia has ever seen took place in Melbourne from 1 to 8 March! Our goal was to distribute more than 100,000 Scriptures at over 4,000 distribution points during that week.
More than 200 of our members and close to 100 volunteers made the commitment to be in Melbourne for the blitz. Many of our members travelled from as far as Northern Queensland and Western Australia.
A preliminary tally indicates that over 90,000 Bibles and New Testaments were distributed. This includes over 25,000 New Testaments that were handed out in personal witnessing. Many conversions were made for Christ and many others were giving something to reflect on further.
Thank you to the many, many friends who have continued to pray and support the Mission for Melbourne and the Melbourne Scripture Blitz 2015. Please continue to pray that God will use the seeds that were sown in Melbourne to build His kingdom.
So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ – Romans 10:17
Amongst the 4000 distribution points were many Melbourne hotels, that received new copies of God's Word. In each case the hotel staff were offered a personal copy of the New Testament.
