Ghislaine’s testimony:
“Sadly, I did not have the opportunity to attend school. Not being able to read or write made life very difficult for me. With the catastrophes that have happened to Haiti, traditional forms of income generation have become impossible. Now that I can read and write, I can better serve my community and support those who need my help. I also find great joy from reading my Bible which the Bible Society gave me.”

The Gift of God’s Word and Literacy in Haiti

A huge part of the Canadian Bible Society (CBS) work is translating, producing and distributing God’s Word. However, it doesn’t end there; CBS also provides ways for people to engage with the Bible. But how can they engage with the Bible and make it a part of their daily lives if they can’t read?

Literacy is a privilege that over 750 million people in the world do not have. And sometimes, being able to read could mean the difference between life and death, hope and despair – as is the case in Haiti.

After the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, many Haitians have been forced to find alternative sources of employment to feed their families, and the inability to read and write makes this almost impossible. And – especially amidst frequent natural disasters – Haitians need the timeless wisdom, comfort and hope that can only be found in God’s Word.

CBS has partnered with the Haitian Bible Society in bringing God’s Word to those who need it most, as along with the gift of reading, so they people may fully engage with the Scriptures. It’s a gift that they can pass on to their families, creating a lasting change not only for themselves and loved ones, but also for their communities.

The joy of seeing someone read God’s Word for the first time makes all our efforts worthwhile. By supporting this project, you’ll help thousands of people come to know His message of salvation, discover God’s plan, and make a better life for themselves and their families. Your gift of:

• $25 will provide Bibles to 5 widows in India to know the good news of God’s love.

• $50 will provide 6 students in a study group with their own Bible;

• $750 will help supply a whole shipment of books, Bibles and resources.

Thank you for your faithful support!
