Sphisenkhosi’s story

In Swaziland 47,000 children have lost their parents through aids-related illnesses. They’re left orphans, often alone, scared and in poverty.

We’re bringing practical aid and the Bible to children across Swaziland, through your support in Bible a Month.

Sphisenkhosi is 13 years old. Her mother is dying. But on the darkest of days, Sphisenkhosi is finding  hope in the Bible.

Her favourite part is Psalm 22. When she reads these verses, she feels happy.

‘The Psalms tells me when I cry to the Lord, he will help me,’ she says.

Please help bring the life-giving message of the Bible to more people like Sphisenkhosi across the world.

Just £5 can help translate, print and distribute the Bible. You can help change lives, for good.

Salma’s Story: The difference your gift can make

When Salma fled her home in Syria with her husband and seven children for the safety of Jordan, they didn’t think it would be for long.

Three years later, Salma’s home town has been all but destroyed. The family has lost everything – their home, the shop her husband ran, the life they used to know.

In the midst of all this, Bible Society has helped the family find an apartment – basic, but a home nevertheless. We have introduced Salma to a local church, where she has been attending a weekly women’s group.

Here is where the biggest change happened. At this group, Salma could share her worries and receive prayer. She also received a Bible, courtesy of Bible Society. As a result, she met Jesus – the Jesus she has now chosen to put her faith in.

‘The belief in Jesus makes life worth living, even though I own nothing,’ she said. ‘The Bible is everything in my life. I’ve changed. I believe God brought me here from Syria, to go from dark to light.’
