3,500 ERV Bibles (Easy to Read Version)

ERV (Easy to Read Version) uses easy vocabulary to make the Bible more accessible to a variety of people. We have printed ERV Bible with a devotional guide included, and they will be used for refugees in the U.S.

In 2023, we are grateful for the continuation of Bible printing ministry from last year.
With the rise of fuel cost, material fees, refurbishment of the facility, there are so many prayer requests. Please pray so this ministry will continue as we serve the Lord.

New Life Ministries is a non-denominational Christian ministry committed to serving the Lord by printing and sending Bibles and Gospel literature to Japan and the rest of the world, in each people group’s heart language.
Beginning in 1954, under the name New Life League, the ministry reached out to children, provided Gospel literature, and did evangelism through radio broadcast.
Later on, the work shifted more to the collection and printing of Gospel literature as the main focus.
Throughout history, there has always been a call for the supply of Bibles, and New Life Ministries has continued to do all that it can to meet the demand. Our purpose is to see Japan changed for Jesus, and that the whole world be filled with His precious Word.
