One Million Bibles
“Not having the Word of God was like walking aimlessly.”
Life in Uruguay was stressful for Rodrigo*. As he worried about providing for his wife and children, Rodrigo’s anxiety grew and grew, but no solution appeared.
Then one day, Rodrigo came across a 1 Million Bibles distribution event, where his life changed forever!
“I received my first Bible with great interest,” Rodrigo says. “The kind people who gave it to me explained the New Testament and showed me where to find courage.”
The arrival of Scripture couldn’t have come at a better time for the people of Uruguay. Due in part to the demand for God’s Word, and the effects of the pandemic, a year’s worth of Scripture was distributed in just two months to people like Rodrigo.
“Not having the Word of God was like walking aimlessly,” Rodrigo says. “But thanks to people who felt Jesus’s unconditional love, I am able to know Him and experience His love too.”
The dedication of our financial partners helped to bring Bibles to people like Rodrigo in Uruguay and more than 1 million other people in South America, and we are so grateful.
