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.

As a little girl, Mrs Bala wanted to learn to read and write, but owing to her family’s poverty she was unable to. Now, at the age of 75 she has been attending Bible Society literacy classes at the Chourkhuli Church of Bangladesh in Kotalipara in southwestern Bangladesh.
