At present we have been advised that mailings to some countries have either been embargoed or delayed. In the UK we are now in a second lockdown which will restrict what we can do.
We have sent books to some libraries and are pleased to know that most have reached their destination safely. Others we are waiting to hear. Mailings for pastors have been prepared but not yet sent. We are sorry that many of you are still waiting for books.
Once we are confident that books will reach their destinations safely and reliably, we will arrange for them to be despatched. This applies to both new and pre-loved books.
This is a very challenging season for people the world over and we pray that you and your churches will be kept safe and find unexpected opportunities at his time. Please will you pray the same for us!
In the meantime we are using our energies to revamp our Slices website of free downloadable resources (www.slices.org.uk). Other downloadable resources will soon be available. These can be viewed on smart-phones and tablets as well as laptops and PCs. For those of you who communicate by email, we will be sending some teaching letters until we can begin to send books again.
This page is for Christian leaders in the developing nations who wish to apply for books from Sovereign World Trust. We would like to help as many people as we can with as many books as possible but we have limited resources so we don’t want to encourage unrealistic expectations. Please read this guidance carefully. Our guiding text is “Commit these things to faithful men (and women) who will be able to teach others also.” (2 Tim 2:2) If you believe this applies to you, please read on.
We aim to match books with recipients very carefully. Typically, we send books to leaders of churches and small congregations and to those training to be leaders in Bible or Theological Colleges. We also support libraries. We need to be assured that the books are proving to be of real benefit. We also need to be able to assure those who are generous donors to our work that their money is being spent well, not least because there are so many worthy causes and worthwhile ministries that are seeking funding from God’s people.
