Our Reach4Life youth program has been growing by leaps and bounds, thanks to Biblica supporters like you. The frank, clearly written, Bible-centered lessons on sexuality, peer pressure, and finding God’s will for your life are exactly what millions of young people are searching for today.
When the pandemic threatened to stop Reach4Life groups from meeting, our teams sprang into action to move the groups online.
Our Southern Africa team, for example, reports, “Our online groups are growing in great numbers, and we have decided to train a group of Online Peer Educators. Our first online training was a wonderful success. We had team leaders streaming from cities, townships, and villages. We started Reach4Life WhatsApp groups in all areas of our work. These platforms help to keep everyone connected during this time of social distancing. Coordinators take turns in sharing a devotion each day, and peer educators take turns in sharing lessons they have taught. The response has been great, and we have been able to reach 5,326 kids. Some of our teams have also designed and made their own Reach4Life face masks! We bless the Lord for their initiative and creativity.
“We also bless the Lord that throughout the lockdown, all 360 peer educators have received continuous financial support and food parcels to carry them and their families through. We thank God for the faithfulness of our donors who have enabled us to do that.”
Sixteen-year-old Sindiswa from Durban, South Africa, shares, “I joined a Reach4Life WhatsApp group during the lockdown. There has been no dull moment with our peer educator taking us through Reality Bites lessons. Reach4Life gives me answers to many life questions that I have. The book has made me believe that God is real and that His Word is true. Though we can’t meet in our community hall for our Reach4Life activities, I am happy we have stayed in touch through social media. I appreciate my Reach4Life copy. It has kept me busy, strong, and closer to the Lord during this difficult time all over the world.”
Your continued support means we can keep developing new digital tools—such as the upcoming Reach4Life app—that help keep youth connected to God’s Word in every situation. Thank you!
