East Asia – Randall Family
The Randall’s work with the Southern Cross Project to distribute Bibles to Asian tourists who are unable to get copies of the Scriptures in their home countries. Southern Cross volunteers greet the Asian tourists face-to-face at popular destinations, holding signs that explain to tourists in their native language that the Bibles are free gifts. Partnering with volunteers and local churches, the Southern Cross Project also has done English camps at local schools and Vacation Bible School in the local churches.
