“The Bible helps me to be a model like Jesus.”
Helping to give children like Daniela hope as they come to know Jesus through Scripture
When the pandemic struck, it was especially hard for struggling families in Latin America, where about one in four people live in poverty. The ongoing economic effects of the pandemic have pushed millions of more people into difficult financial times.
Many believers in countries like Paraguay still struggle to afford their own Bibles. This includes families, as well as children like Daniela*. Amidst pandemic worries, Daniela had to adjust to virtual classes that kept her away from friends and teachers. More troubling still, her family’s business struggled from dwindling sales as the world around them closed down.
“I felt sad and worried about how I was going to continue everything and improve with my homework. I was also worried because we had no sales at my parents’ place,” says Daniela. The pressure and fear built up for her, just as it did for millions of other young children.
But one day, thanks to American Bible Society partners, Daniela listened to the audio Bible together with her class, and even received her very own Bible. Suddenly, she had new energy to change her life.
“The Word of God has helped me a lot in my behavior. My desire is to be a person of example. The Bible helps me to be a model like Jesus,” Daniela says, “so that others will want to follow His way.”
Thank you to our partners for your dedication and for helping to give children like Daniela hope as they come to know Jesus through Scripture.
