People who support The Voice of the Martyrs’ projects make it possible for VOM to deliver Bibles and New Testaments into countries where Scriptures are not easy to get. During two recent years, VOM distributed a total of more than 2 million Bibles!
How much is 2 million? A gardening website says that the average square foot of lawn has 3,000 blades of grass in it. So 667 square feet would, on average, contain about 2,001,000 blades of grass, just a little over 2 million. Measure off a 22-foot by 30-foot grassy area to form a 660-square foot space.
Pick up a blade of grass from the space to represent one person who has received a Bible or New Testament. Look at all the other blades left in the measured-off area. They represent people who now also have Scriptures they can read for themselves. Many also share their Bibles with others.
