Nine-year-old Elijah misses his daddy desperately. His mom took him to visit his dad in prison, but it overwhelmed Elijah and he never went back.
The American Bible Society is joining forces with Angel Tree®, a program of Prison Fellowship, at Christmas to supply Scriptures to 40,000 children, like Elijah, and the little girl pictured below, and their parents and caregivers. This partnership reaches children of the incarcerated who live in remote places around the U.S. where churches may or may not participate in Angel Tree®. Each child receives a box with presents and an American Bible Society Scripture resource.
Incarcerated parents and day-to-day caregivers receive Scripture resources with coupons that they can send back to request a free Bible from ABS. Angel Tree® goes beyond Christmas by encouraging the year-round spiritual well-being of these children by helping to place them in Christian summer camps and mentoring programs.
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.
