The Word@Work is our semi-annual newsletter that shares stories and updates about how you and the Canadian Bible Society are making a difference around the world.

The Spring/Summer edition of Word@Work focuses on the domestic violence crisis in Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, and Nicaragua. It also highlights stories from victims who have experienced the healing power of God through His Word.

Yes, there is a solution to domestic violence!

There is an epidemic ravaging Central America – the Pan-American Health Organization calls it “a critical public health concern.” Those living there label it “an ongoing threat to life.”

It is not a biological disease… It is not hunger… It is not civil war… It cannot be cured with a flu shot… It is domestic violence.

Authorities agree that Central America is in peril. Without healing and transformation, the cycle of violence continues from one generation to the next. Adults abuse children, who grow up into adults who abuse children, and all of Central America suffers.

What can be done to stem the rising tide of violence against women and children? Who will rebuild these broken families? There is only one solution to this epidemic: hearts transformed by the Word of God.

To help address this social epidemic, the Canadian Bible Society and its global partners have launched a significant campaign in Central America: “Yes, There Is a Solution to Domestic Violence!” This initiative aims to:
  • Reach over 400,000 people in seven countries with the life-changing message of the Bible;
  • Bring about change in cultural views – particularly on how men – and society in general – treat women;
  • Provide an avenue for victims to find emotional, mental and spiritual healing.

This is a huge task, and we rely on your support to make it happen not only this year but in the years to come. Here’s what your support can accomplish:




$50 will provide 40 Scripture resources tailored especially for children, helping little ones understand domestic violence and affirming God’s love for their lives.

$100 will send 20 families to Bible-based training workshops.

$250 will equip leaders dealing with domestic violence, provide Scripture portions, and fund values-centred workshops.
