In the Palestinian Territories, Bible Society is bringing the message of the Gospel to children through fun-filled biblical camps, trips and activity days.
Many of the children, who come from towns such as Bethlehem, Ramallah and Jericho, have known only instability, isolation and poverty in their lives.
The children also receive children’s Scriptures. One little girl, Selena, was enraptured to receive 101 Bible Stories. “I love reading the Bible. I read it every night. My favourite stories are the birth and the resurrection,” says Selena.
