This week I made another delivery of Christian books collected from in and around Southampton to the Book Aid depot in Southsea. Many of these will be going on a container to churches and bookshops in Ghana next week. This was the 12th delivery of books from Southampton to Southsea made in the last year. Given that during much of the last year we were under covid travel restrictions, deliveries have averaged two or three a month since the lockdown eased.
Book Aid supports Christian bookshops, mainly in Africa, Asia and the Caribbean. Smaller shipments of more scholarly books are occasionally made to equip Bible College libraries where they are used to train a new generation of ministers.
