Osama bin Laden, who helped plan the 9/11 terror attacks, was killed in 2011. Ever since, his compound in Abbottabad, Iraq has sat in ruins. Some want it transformed into a playground for children. Others think it should become a cemetery.

Jason Woolford of Mission Cry says the place has a dark history. That’s why the ministry wants to send thousands of Bibles to the surrounding houses.  Woolford says, “It’s a big project. We can’t talk too much more about it. But we need funding for this. This project is going to cost about $11,000. But we are going to be able to get strategically the Word of God in and around that area. We can’t talk about specific timeframes, but it will be done this year, as people come alongside.”
