The Book Club

Usually, one joins a book club to get books, but this book club is all about giving books. Do you want to be a contributing author in someone’s testimony? Time and time again, we’ve seen God use the Book Club to complete projects that help someone find, follow, and serve Jesus.

A Book Club Like No Other

When you give to Book Club, you will have the opportunity each month to hear about a new book project and the people and place it will bless. It might be a book on Christian evidences in Russian, a Bible study text in Spanish, a commentary in Arabic, or another needed book in another language worldwide.

You’ll also receive an envelope, inviting you to give your next monthly gift to help fund the project. Your gift, when combined with gifts from other Book Club members, can print an entire book project! Since beginning in 1994, Book Club members have given over $1,250,000, and helped print 500+ book projects.

Burmese Hymn Book

September’s Book Club selection is a hymn book, in Burmese, for Christians living in Myanmar. We originally partnered with Asia Christian Services to publish this hymnal in 2008, and did additional reprints in 2016 and 2022. However, in May of this year, a powerful storm, Cyclone Mocha, hit Myanmar causing a lot of damage to people’s homes and church buildings. They are hoping to replace these books, which are very important in the lives of Burmese Christians.

Multiple LATM partners in southeast Asia have talked about the importance of hymnals in the lives of believers in this part of the world. The Bible is their primary book, of course, but the hymnal comes right after that. David Morse, a missionary in Southeast Asia has told us that believers take them into the fields when they are at work. When they are having a break, they will pull out their hymnals and sing songs of praise and worship together. LATM International Project Director, Jill Halverson, was able to see that first hand this spring, while visiting gatherings of believers in Thailand, not far from Myanmar. She said that it was a beautiful sight to see as they would have their hymnals in their bags and were eager to sing these songs together.

Thank you for your gifts which will provide an additional 2,500 hymn books for our Christian brothers and sisters in Myanmar.

May it be an encouragement to them as they seek to live faithful lives to the glory of Christ
