All one thousand Bibles that KCBI/Dallas had set aside for its annual Day of 1,000 Bibles were snapped up within the first hour of the outreach, held Sat. Jan. 18.
KCBI, the Bible-Centered Station for Dallas-Fort Worth, held the outreach at five area Salvation Army Family Stores in partnership with the Salvation Army DFW Command and Buckner International. An additional 500 Bibles that had been held in reserve are being distributed to a waiting list.
“The Day of 1,000 Bibles allows me to give out the Bible freely all over this part of Texas,” said Karima. “There are so many people who are hungry for the Word.”
“I want to thank you all for distributing the Gospel out here in the street,” Joseph said. “The sacrifice that you are making is beautiful. You can’t rehearse the Holy Spirit.”

The annual outreach kicked off 2020: The Year of 20,000 Bibles. KCBI will work with ministry partners, including Sonrise New Testament Ministries, to put 20,000 Bibles in the hands of inmates in Texas prisons. Last year, the radio station worked with Gateway Church, Chapel of Hope Ministries and Trinity Restoration Ministries, sending 10,000 Bibles behind prison walls. James, a member of Gateway Church inside the Coffield Unit, was one of many prisoners who found new hope in God’s Word. “It was so exciting to meet you tonight!” he wrote in a letter to KCBI. “I like to get the Word raw and uncut, straight from the Throne of Grace. For the first time in a long time, I have a sense of purpose. I was once angry – violent, drug-addicted, perverted. Now I truly am ‘a new creation in Christ.’”
Matt Austin, the General Manager and Vice President of KCBI, added, “The support of our listeners and donors made this day possible, and we’re grateful to them for providing this blessing at absolutely no cost to our neighbors across DFW! It’s our prayer that lives will be changed through the eternal Word of God.”
