Providing Bibles to youth in Serbia
“I hope that many more children like me will receive a similar gift.”
Marija* always longed to find happiness. Despite being surrounded by the natural beauty of Serbia, the beauty of life was passing her by as she struggled to find peace and love.
Serbia is one of the poorest countries in Europe with almost one out of four people living in poverty, and the pandemic has made their economic situation worse. It’s no wonder people like Marija are struggling.
One day, a teacher gave Marija a copy of the Bible that was provided by friends like you. A Bible that changed her life!
“Receiving my Bible helped me feel happy, calm, and joyful,” Marija says. “It will help me look at life from different perspectives and make well-thought-out decisions.”
With the Bible you gave her, Marija found the serenity she has long been searching for. “I see the world around me clearer and because of that, I am peaceful,” she says.
Every Bible our partners provide is another chance to change the life of someone like Marija and fulfill the Great Commission.
“I am very thankful to you and the Bible Society for the gift you gave me,” Marija says. “I hope that many more children like me will receive a similar gift.”
