Blind Faith: Ind. Man Gives Away Braille Bibles

Ad Feedback

Reading the Bible is something that many Americans take for granted. But that's not the case for seeing-impaired citizens like Indiana resident Keith Reedy.

Reedy has been blind since birth. After working through the challenges he faced acquiring his first braille Bible, Reedy felt called to help others in his situation.

Consequently, with the help of his wife, he started Bibles for the Blind from his home.

"We are missionaries and our mission is to print the Bible and Gospel tracks for those who are blind or visually handicapped throughout the entire world," he explained.
Braille Bibles are much larger than a normal sized Bible. Reedy explained that one book must be split up into 17 volumes.

Although Reedy's group gives the Bibles away for free, they aren't cheap to make. One Braille Bible alone costs more than $275.

Terre Haute, Ind., TV station WTHI reported that since Bibles for the Blind depends solely on donations, the group often finds itself walking by faith rather than sight.

"Somebody new contacts us every day and says, 'Wow, I need a Bible, can you help me?' And we want to say yes because it breaks our hearts when we have to say no," Reedy said.
So far, Bibles for the Blind has reached people in more than 30 different countries.
