Who We Are
"In 2010, Vada had a very vivid dream about a man who lived in a foreign country. This man was looking for someone to explain to him how to avoid spending eternity separated from God. After some time, the man found a little box that had four pictures on the sides and a little red button on the top. The man pressed the button and herd a simple and easy to understand message about the love of God.
The next day, we got to work developing The Message Box. After two years of trial, error and lots of persistence, the very first physical prototype of The Message Box was created. Since that day, God has provided miracle after miracle to turn this dream into a reality. In 2012 we shipped the very first carton of Message Boxes to some Missionaries in Siberia. In just over ten years, we have produced and shipped more than 35,000 Message Boxes, in 27 languages, to 25 countries around the world!
We partner with ministries that are already working hard to make an impact in the world and give them as many Message Boxes as possible. Each Message Box costs roughy $4.50 to produce and ship (depending on where they're being shipped to). We rely solely on the generous donations of churches and individuals to help fund each project. When a missionary or ministry asks for Message Boxes, we immediately begin a project specific for their need."
