Joining the Race

BL Volunteers - Clair and Diana
“In Hebrews 12, God’s Word tells us as Christians, to ‘run with perseverance the race marked out before us,’” says Clair, a representative for his church and former National Director. “Running this same race was Moses, Gideon, Peter, and Paul, and we are only 20, 50, 100 generations after them. The race goes on. We cannot quit.

“It is a baton race. Through Bible League International ministry, we are passing the baton. A Bible is placed in the hands of someone who desperately needs it. When God takes that Bible and blesses it, transformation takes place. Look what He did with a piece of bread and a few fish. Imagine what He can do with a few Bibles.” “This is a God-given opportunity for us to join the race—teaming up to work together.”

His wife agrees. “I’ve known about Bible League International since childhood,” says Diana. “When I retired from teaching, I became an active Bible League International Volunteer serving as a Division President for nine years. Working for a cause greater than me brings happiness.”
