VENEZUELA — Andres didn’t want to be in school. He refused to learn anything. At age nine, he couldn’t read at all. His school days were wasted in constant rebellion followed by reprimands.
Then he was invited to a small group meeting sponsored by a local church, and there he received the Book of Hope. Although he couldn’t read it, he was quite interested in the stories, and returned faithfully for the group meetings. He was so enthralled with his new book, he actually began learning to read by following along with the stories in the pages.
Today, Andres has chosen to follow Jesus Christ as His Savior — and his mother and siblings are also attending the small group meeting and learning more about God.

BENIN — Agathe was heartbroken and hurting. Her mother had passed away, and she and her siblings were struggling to stay together and find hope in the aftermath.

Today, she and all her brothers and sisters are following Jesus Christ.
