Answered Prayer! More than 1,100 Military Families Receive God’s Word

Read these powerful testimonies from Military families who received a Hero Squad box

Thank you for praying for Military children to experience God’s hope and peace through the Hero Squad program which provides free biblical resources. Our goal was to enroll 1,500 children in the program.

But God exceeded our expectations!

We provided God’s Word for more than 2,400 Military children in over 1,100 families. And there are another 1,800 children on the waitlist. The Armed Services Ministry at American Bible Society is grateful to God and to you our faithful prayer partners for making it possible to provide Hero Squad boxes containing age-appropriate Bibles, Military-specific devotionals, gifts, journals, family activities, and more to Military kids across America. Now Military families are finding strength as they read the truths found in God’s Word.

Powerful Testimonies from Military Families

  • “We received our box during our spring break staycation! It was perfect timing, and my girls are diving in already! These books are fantastic! I actually cried when I received my Bible from y’all too. I have an ESV, which is threadbare. My husband gave it to me on our wedding day. But he passed away over a year ago, and I can’t seem to read anything after losing him. But the Contemporary English Version makes so much sense to me at this stage of loss and trauma. I’m beyond grateful.” – Air Force wife.
  • “My 4 kids were so excited to open their Hero Squad box and pull out all of their gifts. My daughter reached for her Bible and said that she was excited to read a chapter every day! I homeschool, and the devotionals will be perfect to work into our daily routine as a spiritual discipline.” – Army National Guard wife
  • “We loved getting into the welcome box, my kids haven’t stopped looking through their devotional books, and we have already dug in. This is the neatest program; we are so thankful to be a part of something that is encouraging our children to dig into the things that really matter, like God’s Word and His promises.” – Air Force wife

Praise God! It’s wonderful to hear how God’s Word is providing Military families with the strength and hope they need. Please continue to pray for these precious families as they face unique challenges being part of the Military community. Also pray for financial provision so that we can provide Hero Squad boxes to those on the waitlist at no cost to them.

Let’s Pray Together

Father, we give you thanks that so many Military families are finding comfort in your Word. May your Word guide them into your loving presence where there is fullness of joy. And we pray that you would move on the hearts of people to give generously to this program so that we can continue to share your Word with more Military families.
