Lutheran Braille Workers

“I was on the verge of tears when I opened the box that I received from you.

My 12-year-old granddaughter was born completely blind. She has a strong relationship with God, and we frequently read the Bible to her or listen to scripture on the Bible app. Since she reads Braille fluently, I wanted to get her a Braille Bible.

She was so excited when I gave her the Book of Matthew and she realized that it was from the Bible! I cannot express the joy that we both felt as we were able to read the Bible together! Thank you so much for your ministry. You are touching lives by giving accessibility to the word of God to those who would otherwise not have it.”

This is one of numerous stories Lutheran Braille Workers (LBW) receive on a constant basis – with their headquarters located in our own Pacific Southwest LCMS District in Yucaipa, CA. As a recognized service organization of the LCMS, they have heeded the call to serve those that are Blind and Visually Impaired providing the Word of God in Braille and specialized large print.

In 80 years, LBW has provided fifteen million volumes of Christian material in forty languages to 164 countries making them the world’s primary provider of these materials. Bibles, hymnals, devotionals, and Bible studies are available by partnerships with Concordia Publishing House, Lutheran Hour Ministries, Artesian Ministries, and others who have partnered to share their publications with this population.

When people contact LBW to get these materials, they provide them 100% free of charge.

How are they able to do this? By the 3200 volunteers in 69 Braille and 37 Large Print Ministry Production Centers. By the prayers of those that ask God to continue to bless the ministry of LBW. By the generosity of many who help fund getting the Word of God in the hands of those that want it.

LBW invites individuals and groups to tour their headquarters to learn about this exciting ministry! For more information, please go to or call 909-795-8977. Visit their social media on Facebook - and Instagram - @lbwloveworks.


Enable more stories of transformed lives through Jesus

Untold thousands are still in darkness, lost like “sheep that have gone astray”. But this is exactly the mission our Lord has created His Church for – reaching the lost for Jesus’ sake in as many ways as necessary. This is the purpose for which our 300 churches and 150 schools were founded in their many contexts. And “the fields are ripe for the harvest” right now!

Your gifts are critical and enable us to continue and expand our shared work together, fulfilling the PSD mission of effectively resourcing congregations and schools for transforming lives and making the Great Commission REAL!
