Association Churches Urged to Give Used Literature to Love Packages

Love Packages is a ministry in Butler, IL which collects Christian literature and ships it to English-speaking countries around the world.  In 2018 they shipped 1,592 tons (3,184,000 pounds) of literature to countries like the Philippines, South Africa, and Ghana.  It is estimated that every piece of literature on the mission field will have an average of 20 reads.  We can help by collecting our used Sunday School literature, magazines, books (non-fiction), Bibles, tracts, devotionals, etc.  Giving Hope Ministries in Kirksville will come to your church and collect the materials that you collect.  Call 660-216-4183 for pickup.  This won't cost you anything and is a great way to recycle materials for the Kingdom!  You can learn more about Love Packages at https://lovepackages.org/
