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.

“On the evening of that first day of the week, when the disciples were together, with the doors locked for fear of the Jewish leaders, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!” After he said this, he showed them his hands and side. The disciples were overjoyed when they saw the Lord. Again Jesus said, “Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.” And with that he breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive anyone’s sins, their sins are forgiven; if you do not forgive them, they are not forgiven.” (John 20:19-23)
