The Gideons International visited Pacific Hills Lutheran Church recently and presented their mission of sharing God's Word. We thank the Gideons for their visit and sharing God's Word through distributing the Bible.
Millions of people are living their lives with no access to the Scriptures. The Gideons, with your help and prayers, can get God's Word into their hands.
Once such story is from prisoner-to-pastor John Krainer
I left home at 16, and by 21, I was out of control. I shot into a car and was arrested. I had no hope, no friends, and no family. However, there in my jail cell, I saw a Gideon-placed Bible. I had never read a Bible before. I learned about Jesus and His love. I prayed for the first time, and I was forever changed in one instant. I vowed to follow God and give my life to Him.
After my release, I became a pastor. My life has been transformed from pain and suffering to joy and service to the King. Daily, I thank God for his unrelenting love in that jail cell - as he spoke to we through His Word.
-Pastor John Krainer, Colorado, February 2015
Your Faithfulness Makes a Difference
Every Scripture distributed by The Gideons international is provided through gifts from local churches and individual Christians like you. The Gideons partner with churches anywhere, to reach the unreached everywhere. Together, we share more than one million copies of God's Word every five days — often reaching people who may never own or even see God's Word, without your support.
