Spiritual wholeness is nurtured as people hear the Good News, become vibrant disciples of Jesus Christ, and grow in their faith!
In the United States, Bibles and Christian materials are available in abundance. Yet in developing countries, millions have never seen God's Word. The greatest hope of countless pastors in foreign nations is to someday have their own Bible.
For almost 50 years, Love Packages has been collecting and shipping 20 ton sea containers packed with new and used Bibles and Christian materials to countries around the globe. Volunteer organizations receive and distribute these materials where needs are the greatest within their countries. Millions are receiving God's Word and the Good News of Jesus Christ for the first time!
SPARK maintains connections with close to 20 churches in central Illinois to gather needed materials and deliver them to Love Packages in Butler, IL. You and your church can make a life-changing difference in the lives of those who have never experienced God's Word in print!
YOU can be a part of this discipleship story! To learn more or to donate Bibles and Christian materials, please reach out to us using the form below. We are grateful for your support in spreading God's Word and providing a way for others to grow in their faith!

Easter Monday Bible outreach. I would like to give God the glory for today's Bible outreach. Our youth team knocked on over 800 houses today with copies of Bibles. We had many salvation testimonies and great joy and even disbelief that a Bible can be given to them for free. It was such a joy to see the smiles and appreciation from the families who received Bibles as we celebrated the resurrection of our Lord Jesus. Thanks to Love packages for your continued partnership with us in sharing the gospel through Bibles and literature.

University students were blessed with the group of Bible study material as most of them come to the campuses without a solid Biblical foundation and with the university environment always exposing them to anti-Christ[ian] worldview. The meditation on this material forms a guard through the Word of God. We have seen students come to Christ through the wisdom of these teaching materials. It puts the Bible in perspective and also showed them that the Word has something to say about the areas of economics, law, and politics.
