But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint. — Isaiah 40:31, ESV
At the end of 2017, hope became a rare and precious commodity. Earthquakes, hurricanes, and ongoing conflict left many wondering what the next year would hold. Is anything certain? Is there anything you can put your trust in?
But over the past year, thousands of people have been introduced to a source of hope that never fails — Jesus Christ. Because of generous donors, people in Rwanda, Iraq, India, North Korea, and many other countries are reading God’s Word and finding the strength to stand firm through their trials.
Thank you for supporting church planting and Bible distribution around the world. Here are just a few of the ways you made an impact in 2017:
