Stories of Transformation through Christ!

More than one million villages still have not heard the Gospel. You can help us reach as many as possible. People, just like these, are waiting to be transformed by Christ.

Every village that is reached results in amazing stories of transformation through the power of Jesus Christ. These are real stories of real people.  

 

Paying It Forward

On the first night of camp, there was an invitation to receive Jesus as Lord. “I didn’t have the courage, so I told myself that if they asked again, I was going to do it. On Tuesday night, they asked again,” Alexandra recalls. “That was the moment that I received Jesus in my life!”

When Alexandra returned home and told her parents, they were a bit suspicious, but allowed her to attend church and Bible study. She continued going to the summer camp, and two years later, Alexandra was baptized. “Even my mom told me that she saw a change in my life when I got back home,” Alexandra says.

Alexandra’s story doesn’t end there, though. She returned to the camp as a counselor for two years and has now joined the staff! She likes helping the girls find solutions to the problems they face in life.

Alexandra is committed to guiding the girls and building a foundation so that they will continue their relationship with Christ, keep reading the Bible, and keep praying long after camp ends. “I saw how much God changed my life, and I want to see that change in their lives too,” she submits.

Can you imagine having to overcome the ups and downs in life without your faith in God and your Bible? Millions of children have not yet had the opportunity to hear the Gospel and have no idea that Jesus or the Bible even exist!

Your generous support will give children around the world access to the Word of God and the hope of eternal salvation in Jesus Christ. When you help change children’s lives, you enable them to help create change in their families, their communities and our world just as Alexandra did!

Casting Fear Aside

Anna is a young woman from Macedonia. Her friends would describe her as a person filled with enthusiasm, joy and a love for her Savior, Jesus Christ. 

She was surrounded by friends and had even met and married the man of her dreams. Her life was full. Everything was going well. She seemed set on a course for a sweet life of contentment.

Then, in a moment, everything turned upside down. Anna was hit by a reckless driver. The accident changed the course of her life in ways she never imagined.

She sustained serious injuries that left her needing numerous surgeries. Her recovery was a very long and painful process. Feeling overwhelmed by both the pain and the abrupt change in her life, Anna began to feel hopeless. Peace and joy seemed to vanish from her life. She questioned the God she had once loved so much.

At that time, Anna’s friend Lena invited her to a Bible study. The booklet they were studying was about being delivered from fear.

As Lena and Anna worked through the booklet together, they were able to understand that God’s promise to care for His children extends to both the happy and tragic times of life. Fear can take away our dreams, but God’s gift of peace will allow us to move forward! These friends discovered that God’s peace can melt away fear. 

Anna’s heart slowly filled with hope once again. Her life is different now, but she has cast fear aside and rests in the peace that surpasses understanding.

Set Free

Evgeny is 35 years old and was born in the country of Georgia, but now lives near Kiev, Ukraine. Upon arriving in Ukraine, Evgeny discovered that his documents were either stolen or lost during his trip. He managed to enter the country and learned how to live without official documents, finding a job and an apartment to rent.

Evgeny was successful in earning money, and when he wasn't working, he partied and drank often. Then, one day, he met someone on the street who invited him to come to a Bible study that was being held in a few days. Evgeny agreed to join them.

The next day, the police came to arrest him, intending to deport Evgeny back to Georgia. But then a strange thing happened – he was released! The authorities gave him no reason why. They simply let him go free, and Evgeny was allowed to return to his apartment.  

When the day of the Bible study arrived, Evgeny was able to attend just as he had planned. During that first meeting, they studied the Ten Commandments, and Evgeny began to see how his life measured up in the light of the Holy Scriptures. “I saw my sinful life. I saw despair,” he admits. Evgeny continued to attend the meetings and heard God calling to him, but he did not know how to respond and draw near.

Through the Bible studies, Evgeny learned about God and believed that He is omnipotent and could change his life for the better. He learned that, through prayer, he could repent and be reconciled with God. So, that is exactly what he did! Evgeny praises God for the changes He has brought to his life and for those that are yet to come.  

Finding Joy in God's Word

“I was a staunch atheist. Reading the Bible was out of the question,” comments 67-year-old Vernon from Kiev, Ukraine. It hadn’t always been that way, though. In his youth, Vernon had prided himself on being able to read the Bible and share his wisdom and insight.

Then, school and a military career left him skeptical about Christians, the church and the Bible. Skepticism gave way to disgust, and as a commander of a garrison, Vernon picked on the soldiers who followed Christ, giving them the most dirty and hard work.

“I was surprised by these guys who were always smiling. Their faces shone a light in spite of all their difficulties,” Vernon shares. And, the more he watched these men, the more his heart was changed.

When Vernon got out of the military, his neighbors invited him to a Bible study at an evangelical church. Though his heart had surely softened toward Christianity, he was not ready to set foot back inside a church.

For weeks, Vernon declined their invitations to attend the Bible study. Then one night he was walking around town simply killing time. Before he knew it, Vernon found himself in front of a familiar church – and just in time for Bible study.

Vernon began to attend the Bible study regularly. The more he read the Bible and participated in the conversations, the more he realized there was about the Bible that he did not know. He was given a New Testament and found a greater joy than he had ever experienced in reading God’s Word.

“I prayed a prayer of repentance,” Vernon tells. “For the first time ever, I stod before God and realized I could not justify my deeds or anyone else’s. I needed God’s salvation.”

Today, Vernon still attends the Bible study, and so does his wife. “Praise God, who has transformed our family!” he declares.
