The project is in recognition of Canada’s 150th birthday and the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. The goal is to distribute a Bible to every MP and provincial politician in the country; that’s a total of about 1,200 Bibles. The total budget for the project is about $20-thousand dollars. So far, ARPA has raised more than $11-thousand dollars in donations from about 80 individuals and families, most of them in northern British Columbia. Penninga is hoping some other ARPA chapters take up the challenge to finish the fundraising. The plan is to distribute the Bibles by the end of October.
