A local camp has run out of Bibles this year, and Give the Word is asking for help to fill their need.

Camp Arnes needs 75 full Bibles for the remainder of the summer.

Ryan Rempel from Give the Word says they want to continue to see Bibles make it into the hands of youth through Camp Arnes.

"[There are] so many youth and kids that are coming from unchurched homes that this might be their first or only experience hearing the Gospel," Rempel explained, "and [there are] so many passionate camp directors that just want to see these kids in a relationship with Christ; for them to be exposed to the Gospel, for them to be excited about it, and then to have something to bring home that they can continue learning and reading from, and something they can introduce possibly even their parents to is pretty key."

Rempel says that Give the Word has provided several thousands of Bibles to camps this year already, exhausting their budget, and is asking for help to provide Arnes with the Bibles they need.

"There's a lot of camps that we partner with and Camp Arnes is just one of them, but they're kind of on the forefront of our minds right now because that's the project that's in front of us today," says Rempel.

$600.00 is what Rempel estimates it will cost to equip Arnes with Bibles for the remainder of the summer.

"It's fantastic!" Rempel shared of Arnes exhausting their Bible supply. "We like running out of our own Bibles!"

He also says that there's no bad time to give someone a Bible, whether or not they have one of their own already. "If they [camps] are going to be giving Bibles to the youth who already have Bibles, we encourage them to share the Gospel, share their faith story with one of their friends at school."

Those looking to support the project can call Rempel directly at 204-803-5773 to donate, or contact Give the Word at [email protected]
