IBA was established by Brother & Sister M. A. Daoud who pioneered the mission work in Madagascar in the 1960's. Brother Skinner has just returned (May 2016) from a trip to Madagascar and has decided to implement some changes in the next few weeks on how this ministry supports Madagascar. The average wage in Madagascar is $2/day or less. The poverty is nation-wide. Our Brothers and Sisters now have about 260 congregations; some with church buildings, some in simple houses and some in rented classrooms. There are more than 300 preachers. In meeting with the Head Pastor, Brother Joro, and the Church Board, Brother Skinner has made commitments to helping these struggling Believers more in meeting their needs and in their evangelism. "No honest" Believer in America can deny that our nation has reached new lows. Not only do we see this in our nation but also in many churches. God's blessings have diminished as His church has involved herself in carnal activities. Miracles & Missions Digest has tried to warn America about this trend but few seem to have taken heed. "For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad. Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we [Miracles & Missions Digest have tried to] persuade men; ..."
(2 Corinthians 5:10-11)
Brother Skinner will be contacting those who are directly associated with this ministry through their support to advise them of any changes when they are implemented in the coming weeks.

A father of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows, is God in his holy habitation. Psalms 68:5
But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Suffer little children to come unto me,
and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God. Luke 18:16
Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows
in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world. James 1:27

God will condescend to help a child no matter who they are or whose they
Please Pray for America
(Romans 1:21-32) Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. (22) Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, (23) And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. (24) Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: (25) Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. (26) For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: (27) And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. (28) And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; (29) Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, (30) Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, (31) Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: (32) Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or If I command the locusts to devour the land, or If I send pestilence among my people; (14) If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. (15) Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attent unto the prayer that is made in this place. (2 Chronicles 7:13-15)
International Bible Association office in Dallas, Texas has been closed for several weeks and orders are not being processed due to declining Bible sales and rising operational costs. Brother Skinner is focusing on the Bible prison ministry, Miracles & Missions Digest, and our mission work in Madagascar. The office was requiring expense which took away from these other ministries. Please understand IBA is a ministry to the lost and not a business of profit for the public. We exist to provide the Word of God for the sole purpose of the Ministry of Reconciliation and not to provide Bibles for profitable resale!
A notice will be posted here and in our Miracles & Mission Digest when Bible sales and literature will be available again either through our office in Dallas, Texas or through another ministry elsewhere. Please be spiritually patient and understanding with us as we continue our mission of ministering to the lost outside and inside church walls. Time is short and we must redeem the time while it is day and while we still enjoy the breath of life.

(1) <A Psalm of David, Maschil.> Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.
(2) Blessed is the man unto whom the LORD imputeth not iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no guile.
(3) When I kept silence, my bones waxed old through my roaring all the day long.
(4) For day and night thy hand was heavy upon me: my moisture is turned into the drought of summer. Selah.
(5) I acknowledged my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the LORD; and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin. Selah.
(6) For this shall every one that is godly pray unto thee in a time when thou mayest be found: surely in the floods of great waters they shall not come nigh unto him.
(7) Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah.
(8) I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.
(9) Be ye not as the horse, or as the mule, which have no understanding: whose mouth must be held in with bit and bridle, lest they come near unto thee.
(10) Many sorrows shall be to the wicked: but he that trusteth in the LORD, mercy shall compass him about.
(11) Be glad in the LORD, and rejoice, ye righteous: and shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart.
