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