One of the most fulfilling projects we have engaged in is the distribution of Bibles. The father of a young man whom we had given a bible, worked for a very small local radio station and took this bible to work with him where he used it to bring the Gospel to his listeners. God works wonders and His way of expanding His blessings are a mystery to us. The "economics of Jesus". The Bibles we purchase can be bought for $5 each.
Although public education in Guatemala is free, the Government does not provide materials and/or text books. Many families can not afford even the basic school supplies so that their children can attend school. Often the schools are not able to purchase the required text books or teacher's manuals. Minimal funds ($25-50) can send a child to school for a year or buy the required teacher's manuals.
