“The Bible changed my life forever.”
God’s Word is spreading in the Middle East
Right now, there is an amazing opportunity for Christian witness and church growth in the Gulf States of the Middle East. Recently, the Gulf States have seen a flood of foreign workers from places like India, Sri Lanka, and the Philippines seeking job opportunities — and around 50 percent of them are Christian.
The support of American Bible Society financial partners is critical in ensuring these workers, like Ajit*, have Bibles in a language and format they can understand.
“I am illiterate like my parents,” Ajit, who works in Bahrain, says. “I hunger to know God more through His Word. But because I can’t read, I am always dependent on other believers to help me in this way. Thank you for giving me this audio Bible in my heart language. I thank the Lord for answering my desire to know Him more.”
In many churches there are more worshipers than there are Bibles, and the copies of Scripture that Bible Society friends provide are changing lives.
“Every time you open your Bible and read its words, you are close enough to God to feel His very breath,” Sai* in Qatar told us. “Reading the Bible changed my life forever.”
Providing one Bible can be all it takes for someone to become a believer. The support and prayers of Bible Society friends make it possible to provide peace through God’s Word to people waiting in the Middle East.
