Orphans Meet Jesus
Now Jeremiah can say, "I love Jesus, and I want to follow him every day"
Jeremiah was a small boy when his mother died. But he was old enough to feel his heart breaking. "After my mother's death, nobody loved me," Jeremiah explains.
At first, the devastated child was sent to live with his uncle in a small village in Bangladesh. His house was made of bamboo and hay, and they never seemed to have enough food. Jeremiah longed to know someone loved him.
Eventually, his uncle took Jeremiah to a local orphanage. That's where Jeremiah found out about God's love through Scriptures that American Bible Society's financial partners helped provide. "I'm glad to receive this Bible. I read [it] every day. I love my Bible," he says.
"I gave my life to Jesus," Jeremiah says. "I love Jesus, and I want to follow him every day."
Jeremiah is one of thousands of children around the world who, because of American Bible Society's financial partners, now know about the love and hope Jesus Christ came to give. Through their generosity, American Bible Society supports Bible projects across the globe that introduce desperate children to God through Scriptures.
Together, we are:
- Engaging children with Scripture in Nepal
- Helping heal child soldiers in Sudan
- Reaching gang members in Central America
- Sharing God's love with orphans in Bangladesh
- Introducing God to children throughout the Middle East
- Offering hope to displaced orphans and suffering children in Ukraine
- Teaching mothers and children in places like Peru about Christ
Every effort reveals God's forgiveness to hurting children through Scriptures and shows God's love to "the least of these."
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.
