God’s Word for Young and Old
“I will carry my new Bible wherever I go. Thank you.”
As we work together fulfilling the Great Commission, it is important that we provide Scripture to people of all ages in the way that is easiest for them to understand. So, when the Bible Society goes to places like Egypt, we make sure we bring God’s Word in different formats to best meet the needs of different people.
This includes children like Sara*, a seventh grader living in a small Christian village. Sara tried to read the family Bible, but the translation was old, and used many big words she had never heard before. So when Sara received an illustrated Gospel of Luke, provided by supporters like you, her face lit up!
Now, Sara can understand and remember Luke’s stories in detail. Her favorite story, she says, is Jesus’s miracle in Luke 7:11-17. “When I read about Jesus going to the village of Nain, it feels like He is visiting my village too!”
Another way we share God’s Word is through festivals featuring Kingo the Lion. He and his furry friends teach biblical virtues using music, storytelling, puppets, and board games. Eight-year-old Issa* says, “I learned many Bible verses playing the first part of the Kingo game. Thank you!”
You also help us provide large-print Bibles, which are a true blessing for someone like Femi*, a senior.
“I have been unable to read my Bible’s small print ever since my eyesight deteriorated,” she says. “But thanks to the big-print Bible you’ve given me, today is like a feast for me. I will carry my new Bible wherever I go. Thank you.”
We are so grateful to our financial partners for continuing to share God’s Word in formats that are easily understood and embraced by people of all ages in Egypt and throughout the Middle East.
