Bibles for Brian

A Few Bibles.

Can We Multiply?

Will you please send my friend Brian a Bible? Or two Bibles? or ten? They’re for a good cause.

My friend Brian Short and I went to junior high and high school together. We reconnected via Facebook not too long ago. Brian has found his salvation in our King, Jesus Christ. He also recently celebrated a year of sobriety after living with alcoholism.

Brian needs Bibles, and he’s asked me to spread the word. But instead I’m sharing his words, from his Facebook posts.

I had just finished praying and as I was pouring a cup of coffee to sit and enjoy my quiet time of the day, my phone went off. My friend Tim called. He and I have shared faith as we walked through sobriety. I gave him a Bible and some books about God’s grace. He asked me for 5,000 bibles to be given away at something called Gospel Fest. I replied without thinking. “Five loafs and two fish.” I have ten in my closest to start with…Good morning Beautiful…

A busy blessed day. I now have five more Bibles than I started out with. If you want to help in this Micah 6.8 project. Send a Bible or two to 270 C St #10 E , Chula Vista Ca 91910. An elder at the church just ordered a case of 24 for a starting point. He multiplies well. I will keep you all posted. Sheila, if you want to share this with the blog universe feel free. It would be so cool if 5000 faces could participate in sharing the Word.

I just got in. A long blessed evening. My friend and brother in God’s work, Tim Dominguez. He is the one who asked for the Bibles. We talked about his Ministry. Ex Gang members who are working to spread Christ to at risk kids, drug addicts, and alcoholics. I listened and shared faith with a couple of members. We look different and have different paths. But the power of God’s grace and redeeming power was evident. Sweet dreams Angel…

I’m Singing in the rain… The ten Bibles in my closet turned in to thirty-nine by day’s end. The group that needs them is called San Diego Lowrider Gospel Fest Ministries. Bibles are needed by October 15th. It is this group’s third annual project to spread Christ to those that need him. More will be revealed. God morning Beautiful…

As of tonight, God has multiplied ten Bibles into forty-six. The encounters as I explain my Micah 6.8 project have been phenomenal, being able to share God’s power and glory . His grace that He gave to this alcoholic, the chance to carry Christ’s message.

A little extra sleep today. Its nice to wake up in the twilight. I stumbled upon two Bibles. Set anonymously inside my front door. So even in my slumber, God is working things out for the Good of this Micah 6.8 project. The SD Lowrider Gospel Fest ministry is a wonderful cause. I am truly blessed to have met dozens of people to share my mission with. The faces, the hugs, and the sharing of faith tell me I am on the right path. Good morning Beautiful…

No technical problems today. The bus rolled down Fourth Avenue right on time. The rain stopped so it was pleasant to stand in the early hours before dawn. I found two more Bibles on my porch this morning. I put them with the others. Its good to be God’s fingers. Good morning Beautiful…

[Later] Two more Bibles appeared after a little evening prayer. I’m multi tasking. Reading Phllipians and slaying the laundry monster at the same time. I’ll remember how to iron at some point. .. I might require supervision…

More Bibles.

Sheila here, again. Will you please do these three things?

1. Would you please share a link to this post so others might be inspired to send a Bible?

2. Would you prayerfully consider sending one or more Bibles to Brian Short at:
270 C St #10 E , Chula Vista CA 91910

3. Will you pray for Brian’s Bible-gathering project, for his pal Tim, and for everyone involved with the San Diego Lowrider Gospel Fest that God would use these hands and feet, these opportunities, for His glory?

I love this opportunity to send Bibles. I love it that Brian is asking for the books, not our money. I love it that the verse he chose for this project is the only one I remember from my mother’s memorial service.

And I’m honored, and humbled, that he asked me to help spread the word. So again, I ask:

Please send Brian a Bible. Or two. Or ten. 

God bless you.

He has told you, O man, what is good;
    and what does the Lord require of you
but to do justice, and to love kindness,
    and to walk humbly with your God?
Micah 6:8 (NASB)
