“NOW I have hope . . .”

Putting compassion into action for poverty-stricken people in India.

Sakshi* knows hopelessness.

She grew up as a Hindu in one of the poorest slums in India. She experienced poverty… but she learned true despair once her husband died.

“I was so poor that I couldn’t even eat,” she says. “I was totally hopeless, devastated, and disturbed.”

When Sakshi learned about Jesus Christ, she found new hope! But she longed to learn more about God through His Word. For 15 years, Sakshi prayed for a Bible of her own.

Finally, thanks to caring people like you, her prayer was answered.

“I was so happy to receive the Bible,” Sakshi says. “God is a wonderful God. I wanted to know more about the Bible. Slowly, slowly I came to know. He’s the One who has given His life for us. Because the God of the Bible is the true God, NOW I have hope after death.”

So many people around the world face despair and hopelessness. From poverty to oppression, they cry out for the peace and comfort only God’s Word can bring. That is why your generosity is so critical.

When you place a Bible in the hands and heart of someone like Sakshi, you put your compassion into action. We are so grateful to our financial partners for sharing the eternal love of our Lord by providing Scripture to those who are struggling.
