This is a literacy project, so your gift is tax deductible.
Rawhaya, 53, has seven grown-up children. But Rawhaya herself never went to school. “Not even for one day,” she said, sadly. “I was upset, because my family could all tell stories from the Bible, but not me.” She joined our literacy class – and it changed everything. “I was glad, so glad, to read the Bible for the first time,” said Rawhaya. “When I learned the word of God I felt happiness and comfort.”

Help Egyptian Christians shine a light. Four million Christians in Egypt can’t read – so the Bible is a closed book for them. You can teach them to read and provide Bibles. You’ll strengthen the church in this troubled nation, and equip Christians to shine God’s light. Visit biblesociety.org.au/light or call 1300 242 537.
