The Hunger for God’s Word in Cuba

Cuba is experiencing a moment of awakening. The gospel is spreading and churches are appearing everywhere – but getting access to a Bible isn’t easy. There is a Bible shortage. Your gifts to the Bible Society are helping congregations in Cuba with this great challenge.

Bringing Comfort to Elderly Canadians

Elderly Canadians in long-term care (L TC) homes have suffered this year because of COVID-19. It has made visits with pastors, priests and family nearly impossible, and many have gone without spiritual and emotional encouragement for over a year.

Your special gifts of Scripture have ministered to the hearts and lives of those living in long-term care. Thanks to your support, the Bible Society has distributed easy-to-use digital audio players that allow elderly men and women to listen to the Bible and other Scripture resources. This device also plays recordings of hymns, which can help someone reconnect with and find comfort in their familiar faith traditions. You helped give the hope and comfort that can only be found in God’s Word!

Hearing God in Rural China

Imagine longing to read God’s Word, but never having Scripture in your own language. In China, half of all Christians still don’t have a translated Bible of their own. For rural Christians in China, being able to afford a Bible of their own is nearly impossible without help. The Bible Society partners with congregations in remote places like Hunan Province to distribute Scripture to faithful worshippers.
