Thank You Letters from China
You’ve got mail—but the return address might surprise you …

Letters of thanks written to generous partners like you have been pouring in from rural China, where your prayers and support provided aging believers with the large-print Bibles they desperately needed. Thanks to you, these Christians can now find daily encouragement in the Scriptures.
While urban churches in China are filled with young people, those in rural areas are mainly attended by middle-aged and elderly believers like “Joy.”
Joy’s life changed forever when she became a Christian 28 years ago. But when her vision began to fail, it was like she was losing God’s Word. I really need a Bible with big words to guide me through each day of my life, she thought. But in a region of China where most people struggle to make ends meet as farmers, how could she afford a new Bible?
That’s when you stepped in.
Joy and other believers from her area now have their own large-print Bibles, which were provided free of charge thanks to your support. These Christians are overjoyed to read again the words that transformed their lives—and they want you to know just how much your gift means to them.
- “I was touched when I received the Bible,” writes one believer. “God’s Word has helped me in my faith and life. It is a treasure in my heart … Thank you!”
- “The Bible changed my life’s direction,” says another Bible recipient. “God’s Word is the strength of my heart. Thank you …May the Lord bless you and be with you!”
While you can’t hang these letters on your fridge, we hope you feel the love and gratitude etched into each handwritten word of thanks. Thank you for ensuring that Chinese believers of all ages have the treasure of God’s Word!
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.
