Book of Hope reaching next generation in Colombia

By September 18, 2008

Colombia (MNN) — Book of Hope is bringing God's Word into the schools of Colombia and reaching the next generation.

Both the Book of Hope and The GodMan film are being warmly received in classrooms and are transforming lives for Christ. The Book of Hope is reaching youth and children alike. A teenage boy named Juan never knew his life needed transformation before reading the book, and 15-year-old Angelica says she was unfriendly and intolerant. Now she feels God's love swell inside her. Duvan, a 12-year-old who didn't believe there was any such a thing as a "free" gift, said his life has been changed by the Book of Hope that was freely given to him.

All three of these youths found hope for the future and became followers of Jesus after reading the Book of Hope. Although many countries are "closed" to the Gospel, Colombia welcomes Book of Hope to bring the truth of God's Word to many schools in the nation. While the door is open, Book of Hope wants to walk through it to bring the hope of Christ to many young lives. The government is even helping to distribute the Book of Hope.

In La Guajira, the assistant minister of education himself drove the truck containing Book of Hope materials to his city, and the government provided meals and lodging for the Colombian believers who came to help with distribution and conduct Hope Fest concerts. Teams placed God's Word into the hands of over 100,000 students, and during the two-week distribution period they were invited to every school in the state.

33 cents reaches one student, and three youth can be reached for less than a dollar. You can help the Book of Hope reach even more young people in Colombia by clicking here.
