American Bible Society President R. Lamar Vest provided a grant for the purchase of children's Bibles in the Alkitab language for 1,500 children across the poorest parts of Jakarta. For many, this was a first Bible for them and the first invitation for those from non-Christian families to open the doors of their hearts to Jesus.

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.

Help us share God's Word where needed most.
