Our Mission Cry

Empowering native missionaries since 1956.  The mission of CRI has been reclaiming God’s resources for His purposes. We have done this by asking people to share their bookshelves that are filled with Bibles and God’s teaching tools. Once we have received those materials, CRI sends them around the world, therefore sowing God’s word into the lives of those who cannot afford it. CRI is equipping orphans, evangelists, pastors and missionaries for the works of service all the while setting up distribution centers, lending libraries, bible college libraries, and holding crusades. The mission of CRI has planted its first ever Bible Distribution Centers in Kenya and the Philippines and has begun with the endeavor to plant more all over the world. CRI has sent over $278 Million in bibles and Christian teaching tools to over 170 Nations around the world. When you give financially, donate bibles; commentaries; and Christian books, you are becoming a book missionary and aligning yourself with the mission to Share, Send, and Sow God’s Word!

Thank you from the Philippines...

It is with great appreciation that I write this note. Your pastoral library was waiting for me as I returned from my duties yesterday afternoon and when I saw the box, I immediately knew what it was and tears began to fill my eyes. I am so thankful that your network of champions consists of caring believers willing to sacrifice their own money so that I could enjoy the benefit of these resources. It is nothing short of a miracle. Will you pass along my thanks to the champion who sponsored this wonderful gift? Blessings to you!

Pastor Lauten

CRI has donated $272 million in materials to over 170 countries.

Prayer Meeting: February 11, 2016

BY Becca Herr / Events / 0 COMMENTS

landscape-slider1Join us in prayer each week as we seek God's will for the ministry and his direction for our next steps! Weekly, we believe God to do the seemingly impossible all around the world! Every Thursday morning at 8:00 am, CRI's staff joins together to intercede for those all around the world who are in need of the Word of God. We also cover all prayer requests that we receive through our website and mailers and ask for God's provision in those specific situations.

This weeks prayer points:

  1. God's continued provision for the release of the containers in the Philippines.
  2. For God to work miracles amongst the government officials around the world who are working against our shipments of Bibles.
  3. For our CRI missionaries who are leading the Distribution Centers: supernatural protection from harm and sickness, and God's sovereign hand on their lives as they lead people to Christ.
  4. Specifically our CRI Distribution Center Leader, Joseph. Pray for continued health, and happiness for their family, and effectiveness in their ministry.
  5. All of those who are sick who have asked for healing via CRI prayer requests. We declare that no weapon formed against them shall prosper. We ask for complete healing in Jesus' name.
  6. Wisdom and understanding for those who are leading our country. We pray for a Holy discomfort to come to those who are voting, to pray and seek God on His will for the next leader of our country.
  7. For all of those who have requested for God to work restoration in friendships; financial miracles; salvations; and breaking of bondages,we pray for just that in Jesus' mighty name.
  8. For those who are facing persecution all around the world to have supernatural protection from harm and to have increased faith.
  9. Pray for the family of a friend of Reverend Woolford/board member. His family has been going through major trials.

Update: The distribution center in Kenya has officially been purchased!

We want to thank you for believing with us that these things will come to pass! Continue praying for these things throughout the week. Weekly prayer points will be posted every Wednesday to ensure that you can indeed join us from your own home at 8:00 am every Thursday!

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. 1 John 5:14

Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. Colossians 4:2

Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. Jeremiah 29:12
