Armando Miranda, a world church General Conference Vice-President said, " it is a privilege for church world headquarters to have the opportunity to make an impact on the surrounding community through this project instead of leaving witness solely up to the churches." He also said, "each copy of The Great Controversy comes with an invitation card for Bible correspondence, an unobtrusive way to encourage Bible study. There are a lot of people who would never accept a direct invitation to study the Bible, but the Lord has other means and this is one of them."
Church leaders announced this new book distribution project is expected to give residents around the church world headquarters in the 20904 postal zip code an opportunity to gain insight into the understanding of Biblical prophecy.
At the conclusion of a recent church world headquarters worship, employees donated more than $38,000 to fund the printing and mailing of The Great Controversy. Now it has been said they may have above $60,000 or more raised above the basic cost, and it will go toward copies of the book to adjacent areas.
The Great Controversy encapsulates events of the past, today, and a gives a view of the events to come. This project is not only an effort to distribute copies of this book to an estimated 127 million homes in the United States, but also throughout the entire world. What is unbelievable, this paperback copy of The Great Controversy book only costs $1.25 to print, package and ship in bulk to full zip codes. However, we need to act now because paper and postage will go up. Single copies are also available at an individual rate. The Review and Herald Publishing Association is printing, packaging and shipping.
As was at the beginning, does it not cause one to rejoice as we see the leaders and employees at the world church headquarters signature on this Great Controversy Project? This is an incredible miracle. This will give every person on planet earth the opportunity to say "yes" or "no" to a better life.
