American Bible Society’s generous financial partners are helping bring God’s message of hope and love to families dealing with domestic violence in Peru. Peruvian Bible Society has trained more than 30,000 people to help families prevent domestic violence and to care for one another through the pages of Scripture. This ministry meets a great need; on average, 50,000 domestic violence cases are reported in Peru every year.
“We are holding [Scripture-based] ‘Stop the Violence’ workshops because there are many women, like myself, who need help,” says workshop leader María del Rosario Tejada. Through the love of a local church and the power of God’s Word, women and their families in Peru are finding freedom from cycles of violence and abuse.
Thanks to the support of our faithful financial partners, American Bible Society has been engaging people with the life-changing message of God’s Word for more than 200 years.
