Cubans want Bibles to satisfy their hunger for God and for his Word. Youth especially need Bibles that they can connect with easily. Fifteen-year-old Alexis Guzmán Mouriz (pictured on right in green) never owned his own Bible. He read a copy that his grandparents owned, but he really wanted a Bible that was geared for his age.
One Mission Society’s Bibles for Cuba project provides Bibles to Cuban church leaders so that the people can have access to God’s Word and grow in a relationship with him. Bibles for Cuba not only provides Bibles, but it delivers them in a version that can meet people, like youth, where they are.
Alexis’ first Bible is special to him, especially because it is a version that is easy to read and understand for him.
“This version contains interesting ideas, stories, and notes about characters from the Bible, and it also shares about themes of interest for youth,” he said. “This Bible, for me, is the best!”
Alexis prays that God continues to bless Bibles for Cuba so that others, especially Cuban young people, can learn more about the Word of God. As they reach critical growing points in their lives, the fact that they can own their own copies of the Bible to guide their lives closer to God is an irreplaceable value.
“Know these Bibles are very important for the Christian youth of our country,” Alexis said. “Thanks to God and to you (OMS’ Bibles for Cuba), many young people can have their own Bibles, just like me.”
Please pray for Alexis, that God will speak to him and guide him through his Word, and that other young people can have their own Bibles as well. Please also continue to pray that Bibles for Cuba can provide as many Bibles as this nation needs so the hunger for the Word is satisfied.
