Joel Glen King said he’s logged in close to 100,000 miles delivering free Bibles

The magi traveled far to seek knowledge in Bethlehem centuries ago, and Joel Glen King said he has journeyed across 13 states sharing the Good News since 2008. His passion is to provide a free Bible to anyone wanting to learn about Jesus.

King transports the holy books in a colorful caravan assembled by hand from odds and ends, such as bicycles. “God gave me the wisdom to put this together.” Phrases of encouragement and Bible verses decorate each car.

This uncommon evangelist waits patiently for passersby to ask him questions, then he shares scripture after scripture to lead them into truth. His favorite story is about an eight-year-old girl who received a Bible from him, then her mother and grandmother also ended up going to church too. “They didn’t want to drop off a child at a service,” he said, smiling. “That whole family got saved.”

His sole desire is to bring glory to God. “Salvation is found in no one other than Jesus, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12 NIV).

King’s willing witness is a gift to cherish. Frankincense and myrrh were valuable presents in olden days, but how much more precious is the knowledge of God’s eternal love? How can you share God’s love today?

“Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God” (1 John 4:7 NIV).
