The Gideons are a Christian denomination with a very targeted mission.
For over a century, they’ve operated a nonprofit, mostly male missionary business that works to place Bibles all over the world for people to read.
The Bible in your hotel room? Odds are, the Gideons put it there.
According to Gideons International, 86 Bibles are placed somewhere, worldwide, in a hotel room, jail, hospital, airport, or bus station, every minute of every day.
