Offering the hope of Scripture to India’s poor and forsaken young people

As a vulnerable orphan in one of the poorest places in the world, Pria doesn’t have many people or things she can count on. But when this 14-year-old girl received the priceless gift of God’s Word, it changed her life.

In Scripture, Pria found someone who would love her, care for her and never leave her. “I gave my life to Jesus. Jesus is my comforter. I love Jesus. He is my all in all,” she says. “The Bible means everything to me.”

The words of the Bible, now placed in Pria’s hands and heart, are giving this young teenager comfort in a place with very little hope.

“I read the Bible in the morning and in the evening,” she explains. “It helps me to understand about God and live a holy life.”

India has one of the world’s largest populations of young people … an estimated 8 million are orphans, street children or vulnerable. But in one year alone, American Bible Society was able to reach 30,000 of these children!

Please pray for continuing distribution efforts to reach even more poor and forsaken children and adults in India with the hope and comfort of Scripture.

“‘The King will reply, ‘I tell you, whenever you did this for one of the least important of these followers of mine, you did it for me!’” Matthew 25:40 (GNT)

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.
