“The Word of God filled my heart with so much hope.”
Providing Bibles to suffering Guatemalans
The past year has engulfed Maria* with worry and desperation. The economy in Guatemala, where she lives, has suffered from hurricanes, years of drought, and the coronavirus pandemic. No matter how hard she looks, Maria has been unable to find consistent work.
Barely scraping by with temporary jobs, Maria wondered how long she could hold on before
she lost her home. The worst part, she says, was watching her children go hungry.
So, when she heard a local church was passing out groceries, Maria immediately signed up. Soon, a bag of food was delivered to her door, along with an unexpected gift — the New Testament, provided by generous partners like you.
“Receiving this New Testament with food when I didn’t have it gave me a clear sign that it was from God,” she says. “I felt joy.”
Already, Maria has been changed by God’s Word, and those around her have noticed.
“The Word of God filled my heart with so much hope,” she says. “Thank you!”
Millions in Guatemala are facing the same hardships that Maria has endured.
We are so grateful for our friends for supporting these hurting people with the hope and love of the Scriptures.
