Bible 1A pair of Christian ministries are partnering to put Bibles in thousands of hands in Southeast Asia.

The collaboration between Fellowship of Christian Athletes and Biblica is taking place in a country whose name is being kept secret for security reasons, but to date 10,000 Bibles have been distributed in the native language.

The new addition is called the Southeast Asia Sports Bible.

FCA spokesman Silas Mullis, the group’s international director of field support, has served as a unifying factor that has the potential to bring the country together through the love of sports.

“It's the very first time they've ever had another Bible translation in print, in distribution, throughout this country,” he tells OneNewsNow. “So it is a first of its kind for this specific country.”

The Bible includes devotions and testimonies, and Mullis says there are amazing reports of how God's Word is impacting coaches and athletes.

"It really is amazing just to be able to see the photos, the images of young people, aspiring athletes, getting into God's Word,” he says.
