We had an awards dinner early this year to encourage those who are faithfully reading the Bible. We heard many exciting testimonies. Here are a few of them.
Reading The Bible Even In An Empty Stomach
One mother was there with several of her young daughters, who had also been reading the Bible. One of her girls took her Bible to school, and sometimes when she didn’t have food to eat (they are a very poor family) she would read the Bible while others were eating.
Early In The Morning
One of our mighty men said that his daily habit is to arise at 3 a.m. every morning to read the Bible and pray. He has read through the Bible 4 times over the last 2 years, and plans to read it 2 times again this coming year!
Reading The New Testament Once Every Month
Another mighty man said that he read the New Testament 12 times last year (once every month) and plans to do the same this coming year along with more in the Old Testament as well. He shared exciting reports about blessings being experienced in his life because of spending so much time in the Word of God.
174 Pages In 3 Days
Another mighty man told us that at the end of the year he was way behind in his goal to read through the Bible, with only around 3 days remaining, and had around 174 pages in the Old Testament to go! He determined to make his goal, and continued to read for hours and hours, even taking his Bible with him to work, reading while he was eating, etc… He accomplished it, and finished in those 3 days, even in spite of being blind in one eye! He plans to continue reading the Bible through this coming year, intending to read it through 3 times as his goal this time, instead of just once!
It’s wonderful to hear exciting reports of the power of God’s Word at work in peoples lives. There may be many more who would like to join with us in reading the Bible through at least once this coming year, if not even multiple times…
If you need or would like a Bible reading schedule, we would be happy to send you one.
