Orphans and Hurting Children Grateful for God’s Word

Scripture changes lonely, young hearts in the Dominican Republic.

Life in the Dominican Republic can be lonely for the hundreds of thousands of children who have lost one or both parents. These children, and so many others in the nation, are desperate for God’s unwavering love. Because of American Bible Society’s financial partners, we’re able to provide Bibles to these orphans and hurting children.

Here are just a few messages of thanks from children in the Dominican Republic:

  • “I am very happy to receive my very own Bible. I will read my Bible daily. I wanted to have a Bible so I can read God’s Word and know God.”— Dayana, age 6
  • “I arrived at this orphanage when I was 5 years old. I came here with my three sisters. My father died and my mom abandoned us … The Bible has helped me in moments of difficulty. I always encounter verses that help me. I want the Lord to increase my faith.”— Beatryz, age 16
  • “The Bible gives me peace … Before, I used to use bad words, but now I don’t. So, the Bible helps me a lot to change my behavior.”— Sandra, age 10

Thanks to the generous support of American Bible Society’s financial partners, the love of Jesus Christ is brought to the children of the Dominican Republic through the power of God’s Word.

We’re grateful for those who help place God’s Word in the hands and hearts of children in the Dominican Republic and throughout the Caribbean … and for making an eternal difference in their lives!

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.
