The Big Win: Missionary Exchanges Suitcase Full of Books for Logos 5

When traveling to a rugged, isolated region like the Appalachian Mountains, you only pack the essentials: good shoes, toothpaste, coats—you know, the typical can’t-leave-home-without-them items. But the suitcases of Bill Barker, a missionary with the North American Mission Board, SBC, were stuffed a little differently: one had the essentials, and the other was chock-full of his favorite theological resources.

If you can imagine how fun it is to carry around a giant bag of books (as in, not fun at all), then you know how meaningful a tool like Logos 5 would be for someone like Barker.

Amazingly, out of more than 200,000 entries, Barker was the very worthy winner of our Christmas giveaway, which means he’s traded in his hefty suitcase for a one-of-a-kind MacBook Air, pre-loaded with Logos 5 Gold and a collection of Vyrso books.

Barker is thrilled to have won:

“The Logos edition of the MacBook Air has arrived, and I am looking forward to using it in the years ahead for my Bible study and my daily quiet time. As a missionary with the North American Mission Board, SBC, I spend a lot of time away from home working within the Appalachian Mountains. Over the years, when I left home to travel throughout Appalachia, I had two suitcases: one for clothing and one for my books.  With the MacBook Air from Logos, life has gotten simpler—now I simply pick up the Mac and head out the door. The Bible study tools I need are all neatly packed inside. I want to thank Logos for this wonderful gift.”

Barker plays a major role in reaching people in the Appalachians—organizing food drives, church plants, literacy missions, home repairs, and more. We couldn’t be more excited that he’s using his gift to spread the gospel to one of the poorest, most unchurched regions in America. His story is just one of the many testimonies we’ve heard over the years from people who’ve revolutionized their Bible study with Logos.

    A map by US counties that show the total amount of the population that practices any religion can be found at: http://www.valpo.edu/geomet/pics/geo200/religion/adherents.gif [WV doesn't pass 35% of population]

    Amen to that. I am also serving overseas and Logos is a big plus for not having to transport heavy books. I do wish Logos have updated Textbooks though for my training needs.
