Sport Marvel Bible Fund Appeal
One of the greatest joys of Sporting Marvels 15 year journey has been to present thousands of 10 & 11 year olds with an age appropriate NLT Bible in school.
During this school year (2016/2017) the Mighty Marvels Programme has involved 21 primary schools and nearly 700 Year 6 (age 10 & 11) pupils, all being taught weekly 2 hour lessons on the Life of David, The Life of Jesus and the Life of the Church. Each year we aim to raise the necessary funds to gift every last one of them with their own Bible to take home because each year we're influencing a completely different set of children. It's never easy but nothing is impossible with God and in the Kingdom where there’s a will there’s a way!

The fact we have the opportunity to give the Bibles away in school in the first place is a miracle in itself given that when Sporting Marvels started way back in 2002 with the aim of putting ”a positive Christian role model in front of every kid, every day, forever…” everything looked impossible! There was no finance, no personnel and no opportunity for Sporting Marvels let alone a Bible Giveaway in schools! When Phil, our Founder & Chairman voiced the Bible Giveaway dream back then two ministers even told him, “You’ll never be able to give out Bibles in schools!”
In July 2014 amazing partners raised up the finance to give out 450 Bibles. In 2015 a key partner who opened the door for the entire giveaway of 500 Bibles to be fully funded. Last year, for the July 2016 the giveaway was 650 Bibles because the team were teaching in two more schools. This year year are looking for up to 700 Bibles.
Our target is £8000 and you are able to help them reach this goal by visiting their Total Giving Page or contacting the Sporting Marvels, Central Offices, Top Road, Gelli, Ind Est, Gelli, Rhondda Cynon Taff, CF41 7UW
