Yes, you will be enriched in every way so that you can always be generous. And when we take your gifts to those who need them, they will thank God. So two good things will result from this ministry of giving—the needs of the believers will be met, and they will joyfully express their thanks to God. As a result of your ministry, they will give glory to God. For your generosity to them and to all believers will prove that you are obedient to the Good News of Christ. -2 Corinthians 9:11-13
There are countless missionaries across Africa who are laboring faithfully in several mission fields. They are often greatly challenged by the lack of financial and/or ministry resources. We believe that sharing Christ with the world involves more than just words. Through Project Freeman, Inspired Verses International , provides supports to missionaries across Africa so that they might dedicate themselves to their calling.
We believe that an important part of the Great Commission is to support missionaries with the support they need in order to live with both dignity and simplicity among the people they are sent to minister. The Apostle John writes:
Beloved, you are acting faithfully in whatever you accomplish for the brethren, and especially when they are strangers; and they have testified to your love before the church. You will do well to send them on their way in a manner worthy of God. For they went out for the sake of the Name, accepting nothing from the Gentiles.Therefore we ought to support such men, so that we may be fellow workers with the truth.” – III John 1:5-8
This programme is named Project Freeman in honor of Evangelist Ngozi Freeman, a great woman of God , who while she was on earth, yielded her life as an instrument to God in liberating many souls in several mission fields across Africa.
WINIFRED ACCESS & SHELTER SCHEME (WASS)
Leveraging on internal and external donations from partners and divine provision, IVI through Winifred Access and Shelter Scheme provide access to sustainable income helping widows and the needy in local congregations move from extreme poverty by giving them the tools they need to start small businesses in their communities. With this new source of inflow, they can provide food for their families, pay medical and education fees, and build up savings for long-term stability.
Through WASS, we also build low cost buildings for widows in dire need of shelter .
The beneficiaries are nominated by local church pastors and missionaries in the field.
BIBLE IN EVERY HAND
The goal of this programme, Bible in Every Hand, is to reach as many as we can through the influence of the Bible. Providing free Bibles to new believers, internally displaced persons(IDPs),refugees, prisoners, and secular organizations. We believe one way to fulfill the Great Commission, is by distributing God’s word where it is needed most all over Africa.
“Go, then, to all peoples everywhere and make them my disciples.” – Matt 29:19
Leveraging on the support of generous donors and partnership with other Bible Societies and organizations around the world, Inspired Verses International, through Bible in Every Hand Project seeks to play its role in fulfilment of Habakkuk 2:14
“the earth will be as full of the knowledge of the Lord’s glory as the seas are full of water” – Habakkuk 2:14
