Bringing children to the feet of Jesus

Get a glimpse of a Bible distribution day in Mexico!

My name is Avelino Perez and I am director of Gems of Christ Child Development Centre, Bremen, Mexico. Today we had a beautiful event. Compassion brought a blessing from God because the children received Bibles as a gift as part of the sponsorship programme. The children are so eager to learn about Christ.

Bremen, Mexico

Bremen is a very poor place. Our economy is very, very bad.

Carrying the Bibles to the church

It was not easy for the Bibles to be brought here. Brothers had to bring the Bibles all the way here and then probably they walked or they drove to Bremen through an unpaved road.

Giving the Bibles out in church

Children here come every Saturday for the activities, and when they come they receive many good things, but today they were able to bring a little gift home.

Girls at the project reading their new Bibles

Some children were crying out of happiness, and some others were very happy after they received their Bible as a gift.

Bibles are a very helpful tool to bring children to the feet of Jesus. Children are happy to receive the gift because many families are not believers. When they come here, they know that we pray, and that we bless our food, and that we ask God to bless us. So when they come and see us pray, the children will pray in their homes before they take their meals.

The Bible is very important for the development of children because parents cannot buy a Bible for their own children. Through us, through you, it is like we are giving the love of God to the children.
