Imagine desperately wanting to read God’s Word but being denied it because it was too expensive, inaccessible or simply unavailable. Without access to the Word of God, hopelessness, fear, isolation, pain and hatred can take hold.
Drawing Closer to God
Sairus was born into a Christian family in East Malaysia. “The language of the biggest people group in East Malaysia is ‘Iban’. It was also the primary language spoken at home when I was growing up,” recalls Sairus.
“Although English is one of my favourite subjects taught at my school, I struggled to understand it. So when I heard that Bible-based Literacy was being taught in English at my church, I decided to participate.”
“When I first joined the class, I was shy and quiet, but as I gained a better grasp of the language, I became more confident. At first it was challenging for me to read and write in English but now I can read the Easy-to-Read Bible as well as answer questions in English.”
“I thank God for Bible League and for my literacy teacher who patiently guided me through the course. The Bible-based Literacy resources helped me to learn English and also draw closer to God’s Word. I hope to improve further so I can also help others read, write and get to know Jesus.”
Helping Children Draw Closer to God
“My name is Sara and I serve as a children’s ministry teacher at my church. I was introduced to the Project Philip Bible study program entitled ‘Cilukba’ by a local pastor. He is also the children’s ministry superintendent from the largest denomination in the region and is a trained ‘Philip’ in Bible League’s Project Philip program.”
“Initially I was sceptical about this new evangelistic program. It was very similar to the many books and materials that I used in my work with children. However, after I received training on how to effectively reach children for Christ, I was no longer in doubt.”
“Over time, I discovered just how impactful Project Philip is for evangelising children. It is a comprehensive study that cleverly uses a colour theme to communicate the Gospel to children in an easy, relatable way. Since then, I have used this wonderful Bible study to minister to hundreds of children in my region, helping them to draw closer to God. On a mission trip to the Philippines, I led a group of children through the program to help them come to faith in Christ and to understand the Scripture verses found in the study.”
“I thank God for Bible League’s Project Philip program. It has helped to make my ministry to children more profound and effective while encouraging them to grow a deeper relationship with Jesus.”
