Smuggling bibles and changing lives
The start of the work of mission without borders, began with difficult and perilous journeys behind the Iron Curtain smuggling Bibles to churches and communities and encouraging those early Christians in building up the church.
Peter van der Bijl is the National director for Mission without Borders in the Netherlands and Belgium, whose own story of smuggling bibles to those in need changed lives, shared with Premier how the Mission is now in partnership with hundreds of churches from Eastern Ukraine to Albania.
In 2020 Mission Without Borders still operates in Eastern Europe as an international network of Christians who journey with the poor and marginalized, bringing practical and spiritual support with hope of a better future, enabling and encouraging people to lift themselves out of poverty, sharing the hope that is found in Jesus Christ.
