Members of the Foyle Branch of the Gideons paid a courtesy call to the Diocesan Office in Londonderry on Monday morning to meet Bishop Andrew for the first time formally.
William Roulston and Sean McClafferty presented the Bishop with a copy of the Holy Bible. The three talked about the Gideons’ work, locally, to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ.
Gideons International is an association of businessmen and professionals best known for placing Bibles in hotel rooms across the world. Less well known is its placement of Scriptures in other strategic locations so that the Word of God is available to those who want it, as well as those who may not know they need to hear it.
