Run Baby Run Translations

God has used Nicky Cruz's personal story, Run Baby Run, to reach people all over the world and tell the story of how Jesus changed the life of a young gang leader in New York City. More than 40 years later, this book is still bringing hope and changing lives. 

We have a miraculous opportunity to get Nicky’s autobiography, Run Baby Run, translated into 5 new languages - Armenian, Georgian, Turkish, Farsi and Arabic.

We are working with a publishing house in Yerevan, Armenia to translate the book and currently have it ready to print in Armenian and Georgian. In a couple of weeks, we will be heading to Yerevan, Armenia, Moscow, Russia, and Tbilisi, Georgia for a series of crusades. We are attempting to get thousands of copies printed in order to hand out for free for evangelism as well as to promote the crusades.

As you probably are aware, these areas are in extreme need of the Gospel message of Jesus. With the increasing political tensions in this region, the doors of ministry could close at any time to the West. Nicky has a great burden to preach in these nations. Armenia, for example, is a nation that is surrounded by many hostile muslim countries, as well as by Russia, which has a military base on Armenian soil. Armenia was the first nation to adopt Christianity as its official religion in the early 300s. It has survived invasions, hostile takeovers, communism, and a genocide at the hands of the Turks from 1896-1915. Over 1.2 million Armenians were brutally tortured and slaughtered. We are going to minister to the children and grandchildren of the survivors.

Here is the cover in Georgian: 

The cost for the entire project - 5 languages, 10,000 copies in each language - will approach $100,000. We currently have raised just over $10,000. We are in immediate need of an additional $23,500 which will enable us to get 3000 copies printed in each language - Armenian and Georgian.

God willing, we will then get the book translated into Turkish, Farsi (Iran) and Arabic to distribute in these Muslim areas in partnership with the underground churches there.

This is an amazing opportunity that will have eternal impact. Please pray and consider investing in this project. Any amount will help. If you have any friends that might be open to this opportunity, please approach them for support. I do need the funds soon in order to get the books printed ASAP for free distribution.

Thanks for considering this mission effort.

Here are a few testimonies from Armenia:

"I wish I had hundreds of these books to just give out to friends, relatives and neighbors; this can really revolutionize lives of many. Sometimes we Christians create powerful weapons against the darkness only to put them on our bookshelves. This is what the Lord has done; I trust it will have huge impact."

-Jacob Muradyan,

Armenian Translator of Run Baby Run Book

"Oh, how timely this book is! We need it so badly to reach those who are in prisons and those who are already out. I believe that having read this book, the young people who live according to the world’s cruel criminal laws today, will be filled with the fear of the Lord and will make a decision to sanctify themselves, to wash their bloody hands and to follow Jesus. I believe that many young people will be saved through this book."
