The Pocket Testament League

Home  >  About  >  Historic Videos

While fashion and trends change, our world’s need for a Savior does not. These videos demonstrate The Pocket Testament League’s rich history of sharing God’s Word internationally, one Testament at a time.

For more than 120 years, Pocket Testament League Members have shared a timeless message of the Gospel using a timeless method—distributing individual copies of the Gospel of John. As you share pocket-sized Gospels, be encouraged that you are part of a long, godly legacy of sharing the Good News all over the world!

THAT THESE MAY KNOW

Nigeria

Pocket Testament League Members saturate some of the most influential institutions in Nigeria: schools! Watch as members give students of all ages their very own Gospel of John. These students hear the clear message of the Gospel and take the Good News back to their Muslim homes. Without a doubt, countless Nigerians and their families came to Christ as a result of these faithful Members.


SEED TIME AND HARVEST

Brazil

The bustling metropolis of São Paulo is filled with opportunities for Pocket Testament League Members to share the Good News. Freedom of religion, high literacy rates and partnering neighborhood churches allow Members to plant the seed of the Gospel into many hearts. Watch as the Gospel is proclaimed to packed crowds in public spaces, producing a great harvest for the Kingdom.


STRENGTH FOR THY LABOR

Latin America

Pastor Alfredo struggles with discouragement as his congregation attendance remains stagnant. Even his own daughter is uninterested in the Gospel. This all changes when The Pocket Testament League contacts Alfredo and offers to visit his community and bring along copies of the Gospel of John. Because of The League, Pastor Alfredo’s outreach is multiplied and is a direct answer to his prayers.


UNDER THE GUNS

Vietnam

Images of the Vietnam War clutter history books with intense guerilla warfare and suffering. But little is known about the simultaneous warfare for the souls of men. Government and military officials allowed The Pocket Testament League direct access to Vietnam soldiers. Members shared pocket-sized Gospels with the soldiers and presented the Gospel to these men in uniform. Watch and rejoice in this eternal victory.

Our incredible history

The Pocket Testament League has an incredible history of impacting lives around the world since Helen Cadbury's original vision took hold in 1893. Discover more about the work of the League over the years, in our virtual museum

OUR INCREDIBLE HISTORY

In 1893 a young girl named Helen Cadbury sewed a pocket in her dress to keep part of the Bible in it. She would write out some scripture each day and pray for one person to share it with. She enlisted her friends in a group they called The Pocket Testament League. Helen’s legacy lives on today as The League has equipped millions of Christians around the world to share the most important book ever written with others.
