CHANGE YOUR WEAPONS: How this program works

“Change Your Weapons” is a program which aims to curb the growing violence in Dominican Republic and Honduras. The program is carried out in partnership with churches and the local government. Promotional campaigns encourage people who own weapons of violence (many of which are home-made) to surrender them to assigned drop-off centres to receive Bibles. In these centres, they are connected with church workers who follow-up with them and assist them in their spiritual walk.

Trading weapons of violence for Bibles

In 2014, the Canadian Bible Society partnered with the Bible Society in Honduras to launch the program, “Change Your Weapons” which aimed to address the increasing violence in the country. God used this inspired program and since then, through prayers and the outpouring of generous support, murder rates have plummeted. Honduras is no longer referred to as the most violent country in the world – a true miracle.

We know how prayer and God’s Word can curb violence, because God had done it in Honduras. The program continues not only in Honduras but also in Dominican Republic.

This Christmas, please make a special gift to help sustain the “Change Your Weapons” program and bring peace in violence-afflicted places. Here’s what your support today can do:

• $30 will share the Good News of God’s Word to three people; and

• $50 will provide 65 people with Scripture portions called “Cambiemos de Arma (Change of Weapon)”

Thank you for your generous support of this very unique ministry.
