The rejuvenation of our Challenge Bookshops by Oasis International is like flesh and breath causing dry bones to live again. It is the Lord's doing and we are glad. Psalm 126:3
– Rev. Bauta D. Motty, Former President, Evangelical Church West Africa
In 1900, there were a mere handful of Christians in comparison to today, where the eight most populous nations of Sub-Saharan Africa count over 200 million Christians. Over 200 million Christians in Africa lack a personal Bible. Pastor often oversee multiple congregations. Their libraries are slim. Meanwhile, statisticians anticipate the number of Christians to grow to 330 million by 2025.
We base our faith on the written Word of Jesus Christ. You and I know that the Church, around globe, grows because people study the Word and because trained, mature, and resourced leadership guides their congregations. How can an explosively growing Church experience maturity without books?
