More than Missionaries

The Gideons International is an interdenominational association of Christian business and professional men who are members of Protestant/evangelical churches. Our members are dedicated to saving the lost through personal witnessing and the distribution of God's Word in more than 190 countries around the world.

The majority of Gideons live and serve in their local communities, making us very effective and efficient because . . .

  • They know the local language and customs.
  • They know where the hotels, schools, prisons, hospitals and other locations where Bibles and New Testaments need to be distributed are located.
  • Sometimes, we're able to establish local groups of Gideons in countries where traditional missionaries aren't allowed to go.

Testimony: From Strong to Saved

During the Thailand Scripture Blitz, Gideons stopped at a resort hotel in Bangkok to place Bibles in guest rooms. They were greeted by a sales executive for the hotel. After the Gideons placed Scriptures in the rooms, the sales executive had an employee pour glasses of water for them. She then walked over to the table and started talking with them. She told the Gideons that she read the Bible “to become strong.” One of the ISB team members then shared some Bible verses with her. Another team member shared some additional verses and his testimony with her, explaining the difference between “knowing and believing about Jesus,” and “trusting in the person of Jesus.” After the ISB members talked with her, she made the decision to place her faith and trust in Jesus Christ for eternal life. After praying, a big smile came across the new Christian woman’s face. “I feel different now,” she said.
