The Bible Continues to Have Exponential Impact in Rwanda
“When I got my Bible, I came to love everybody,” says Vestine.
Vestine never had a chance for a normal life. The 24-year-old was just a small child when 800,000 men, women and children perished in the 1984 Rwandan genocide. She lost her mother and everything that was familiar.
Vestine was forced to quit school and go live with an older brother. Plagued by poverty, Vestine struggled with heartbreak and tragedy her entire life. And she is not alone.
More than 12 million Rwandans still suffer from the impact of the genocide. God’s Word is their only hope for healing. That is why the help of American Bible Society’s financial partners is so important. They are helping place Bibles in hands and hearts across Rwanda. As hurting people like Vestine engage in God’s Word, their lives are transformed!
“All my life changed, and I am now a Christian,” Vestine says, “When I got [my Bible], I came to love everybody and started helping them read the Bible and understand its content. I consider it as a gift in all my life. After making the right choice to follow God’s way, this Bible will help me continue my way.”
The young woman now shares the Good News with those around her. “With the Bible, I am now able to share with other people and spread the gospel to other people.”
Praise God that every Bible provided with the help of American Bible Society’s financial partners has an exponential impact!
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.
