Bible Distribution in Syria Has Never Been More Active
“In the same way that people need light, warmth, and food, they need spiritual food.”
For years, the people of Syria have lived in fear and uncertainty. War and violence have ravaged their country. But in the midst of tragedy, God has opened a door…
More Bibles and New Testaments are being distributed in Syria than ever before!
“Many are seeking spiritual support in this difficult time,” says the director of the Bible Society in Syria. In this challenging and dangerous region, Bible work has never been more active.
The work of the Bible Society has had to be adjusted many times to meet new challenges. Several times, the vanloads of Scriptures have been taken or burned. But despite it all, people still request Bibles!
“In the same way that people need light, warmth, and food, they need spiritual food,” the director says. “There are many who ask for materials for children. In this difficult time, it is important to the family to get hope and comfort through the Word of God.”
Despite tensions, many non-believers are becoming Christians. “They have to flee to Christian areas.” These new believers need Scripture and materials to grow in their faith and withstand persecution.
Through the faithfulness of Bible Society partners, God is reaching into this unstable and dangerous region and engaging entire families with His Word. This generous support helps provide Bibles, children’s Scripture books, study materials, and more to hurting people, and we are grateful.
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.
