“I was going to kill myself.”
Giving the hope of God’s Word to Veterans!
Mark* walked out the door of his home with a gun. He never expected to return. The Veteran carried so much pain from his service days that he was ready to end it all . . . to kill himself.
Mark’s marriage was falling apart. His children were angry with him. He had no job. Mark saw no other option.
He’s not alone. Our military Veterans are suffering. Many bring back severe emotional and physical scars of war. Can you imagine watching your fellow Service Members die? Or the pain of losing a leg or arm? They risked it all for our freedoms; now they need our help.
The generosity and faithfulness of our financial partners not only provide Bibles, but also Scripture-based resources specifically for Veterans.
Miraculously, Mark called one of the military chaplains we work with and received the help he needed. God’s Word played a big role in giving him hope and beginning the healing process with his wife and children.
“God is using His Word to touch the lives of Veterans so they can experience His calming power even as they face their daily storms. The same Jesus who quieted the storm on the sea centuries ago is the same Jesus who continues to calm them in Veterans’ lives today,” a Veterans Affairs chaplain shares.
Support of American Bible Society is bringing God’s unrelenting hope and peace to Veterans in the loneliest of places. For suffering Veterans, the Bibles our generous partners help provide are a light in the darkness.
