Distribution of Bibles and other Scripture portions in the New Forest Area.
Besides the TBS calenders that were delivered into the near vicinity of the Chapel, and the ongoing distribution of Gospels and TBS leaflets in the open air and local towns and villages, last year, for which, we give God alone the praise, we here at Crosslanes Chapel were able to distribute just over 150 Bibles to schools and individuals in the New Forest. With the help of the Wessex Auxiliary of the Trinitarian Bible Society our Pastor was able to give another 152 Bibles into three more schools in the New Forest, Bartley Junior, Brockenhurst Primary, and Milford on Sea Primary, schools.
Beside the Bibles that have gone forth into the schools, the chapel was also able to send over 1800 other TBS items including 120 large print New Testaments and 150 large John's Gospels.
Our Pastor, in delivering some of the Bibles and other items personally to the schools, had the opportunity to speak to over 800 Children concerning the Bible, and particularly the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.
We are truly thankful to God for this opportunity the Lord has granted us, and we pray they many will be made wise unto salvation and come to faith in Jesus Christ.
The apostle Paul wrote, in 2 Timothy 3:15 “And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.”
