A rather recent addition to the Gideon ministry is the selection of beautiful greeting cards. One hundred per cent of the funds raised from the sale of these cards is used to purchase Bibles that are then distributed throughout the world. This was a display at the banquet last night. Currently there are 280,000 Gideons and Auxiliary memebers in more than 10,000 local groups worldwide. About 1.5 billion Scriptures have been distributed since 1908--more than 500 million in the last 10 years; 75.9 million last year. That averages to more than two copies per second!
