Soldiers Bible Ministry Update

You Continue To Make It Happen
December 21, 2012
“Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet
and a light unto my path”

Psalm 119:105 KJV
Dear friends,


Another year of excellent support from supporters and partners of Soldiers Bible Ministry (SBM) resulted in thousands of Bibles and Bible study materials being placed into the hands of chaplains and military personnel. While the good news of fewer troops being deployed has resulted in fewer requests, we still get thoughtful requests for materials from around the world.  


Bibles and Bible Study Materials


SBM’s partnership with Biblica continued to be strong, with several requests for Bibles being fulfilled. Learn the Bible in 24 Hours study materials continued to be distributed by KHouse.  

Worship for Warriors® CD/DVD Combo

Thousands of copies of  Worship for Warriors® have been donated to “Operation Gratitude” for distribution in their soldier care packages. Individual copies were donated to hundreds of chaplains who have contacted our office with requests for Bibles and study materials. (Note: If you are a chaplain and would like a free copy, please contact us by clicking here.)

The American Bible Challenge

In October, SBM was approached by a producer from the “Game Show Network” to put forth teams for try outs at their “The America Bible Challenge” show produced by Jeff Foxworthy.

Teams from the Atlanta, GA area and the Albany, NY area attended the regional tryouts. Finalists are yet to be announced. SBM will split any winning proceeds 50/50 with each team as they have a second ministry being sponsored into the show.

Bibles for Cancer Patients in the Philippines

SBM was contacted by a woman in the Philippines based on her husband’s receipt of an SBM issued Bible while he was in Iraq as a contractor. She requested Bibles for an outreach to a cancer hospital in Manila; SBM was honored to ship cases of Bibles for this outreach. They will be distributed this month in time for Christmas. 

Focus On the Word for 2013

SBM’s “Focus on the Word for 2013” includes special emphasis on equipping other HGIM ministries with Bibles and Bible study materials, especially where a military connection has been made similar to that of the Philippine experience.

Earnestly Seeking More Resources

Resources for SBM expansion continued to be prayed for and earnestly sought, especially for outreach to domestic VA facilities. We are hopeful to confirm key individuals as they accept the challenge to work with us in the development of this unique and greatly-needed outreach. We would be honored to know you are praying with us for God to open this door.

Year-End Emphasis

For our year end, a special US Army woman chaplain in the Southeast USA travels from state to state, supporting her flock. Please consider donations to support these specific needs:  

  • 3 cases of ESV Bibles,   
  • 3 Cases of NKJV Bibles, 
  • 2 cases of Tanach (Jewish) Bibles, 
  • 2 cases of Complete Jewish Bibles,
  • 3 cases of Spanish Bibles,
  • 2 cases of “Blue Bibles” with Apocrypha, and
  • 3 cases of the recently released Biblica PTSD New Testament Bible.

Thank you for your continued support of this important ministry focusing on the spiritual strength of our allied forces serving at home and overseas!

Yours in Christ Jesus,

John Hoben
