“The Bible leads me on a good path”

Children’s Bibles give South American children hope!

South America can be a brutal place to grow up. Many live on the ragged edge of poverty, struggling to survive with no hope for a better future. In Ecuador alone, some boys and girls are so desperate that they resort to child labor just to stay alive!

One in four people in Ecuador live in poverty, and the number of children who live near or below the poverty line keeps rising. These young ones need a ray of hope! Children’s Bibles provided by caring supporters of American Bible Society can make all the difference for these hurting children.

The Bibles you place in their hands and hearts offer them a guiding light for a brighter future.

Andrea*, age 12, says, “The Word of God is something special. It is spiritual food and very beautiful. When I have problems, I read the Bible and I feel good. The Bible leads me on a good path. It brings me peace and happiness.”

Eight-year-old Nicolas* says, “I was so grateful to receive the Bible, it made me emotional and happy. This Bible helps me to place my faith in God and never say no to His plans.”

As you know, children are precious to God. He makes it clear in His Word that we must love, respect, and care for children, bringing them up in faith. “Teach children how they should live, and they will remember it all their life” (Proverbs 22:6 GNT).

The compassionate hearts of our financial partners for children like Andrea and Nicolas follow God’s commands to guide and encourage all His children by giving them Scripture, and we are so grateful.
