One of the first stories produced by Bible Visuals International was “A Miracle for Samuelito”, a gospel story that incorporated the Wordless Book. In the summer of 1962 a ministry partner shared this story at a VBS in Brazil. On the second day a young boy Sebastião responded to an invitation given at the end of the chapter. He professed Christ as Savior.
Fifty-five years later, that “boy” has served 25 years as a pastor of a national church in Brazil and is now president of the board for Child Evangelism Fellowship in Brazil!
Stories like this remind us how the Gospel seed planted among one generation can impact generations to follow! It also points to the longevity of just one BVI story! “A Miracle for Samuelito” continues to be shared by ministry partners around the world in multiple languages in print and digital formats.
Would you consider further investing in the work of BVI by making a donation between August 1st and September 15th of this year? Why those dates? During that time there is a special MATCHING FUND OPPORTUNITY where your gifts will be doubled to a maximum of $10,000!
This special matching fund campaign coincides with our fiscal year-end on September 30th. Your gift can help us finish out the year in a strong financial position. You can donate just clicking on the link below.
God has continued to give us some amazing opportunities to supply children’s ministry resources to ministry partners worldwide. Just last month a new project began to translate, print and distribute our materials in the Republic of Georgia! Perhaps a child reached in that country will be a Sebastião used to impact generations!
Thank you for helping us in Helping Children See Jesus!
