Hope for the Forgotten in Bolivia

Lives of rural Bolivian people young and old are being revitalized by God’s Word

Imagine the near-impossible task of caring for your family on $1.50 a day—without encouragement or hope for a better future. That is the reality for about 75 percent of people in rural Bolivia.

That is why the support of financial partners like you is critical for the people of rural Bolivia. Your gifts make it possible to distribute and engage people in God’s Word, and lives are being changed for good.

God’s Word is reaching poverty-stricken families. Through Bible literacy programs, many Bolivians are learning to read and are discovering the hope and joy of Scripture. God’s Word is making an immediate and eternal impact on them!

Here are stories of just two of the many lives that have been transformed:

“I grew up not knowing to read or write. I am now 74 years old, and for the last two years, I have been studying in the [Bible training] center. My dream is to preach in Quechua; there are many villages that need to hear God’s Word,” says Maria.

“Knowing how to read has changed my life! Now I know where I am and the places I am going. I now feel safer and am not afraid. In the Bible I received I found a Scripture passage that is now my favorite,” says Martha. This verse is Proverbs 31:29-30: “Charm is deceptive and beauty disappears, but a woman who honors the Lord should be praised” (GNT).

For people like Maria and Martha who fight to survive every single day, God’s Word brings hope, comfort, and encouragement.

Every Bible that financial partners like you help place in waiting hands and open hearts is helping change more lives. It’s an investment in a better future for hurting people who need to be assured of God’s loving plan for their lives.

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.
