You Can Help Put Bibles in the Hands of African Teens
Young people in Africa face similar challenges as teens everywhere. However, they often also carry the added burden of political instability and corruption, limited resources, drought, disease and famine, drugs and alcohol.
Yet, they are asking the same questions teenagers around the world ask: “Who am I? Do I matter?”
Biblica is partnering with Young Life to ensure African teens find the answers to these heart questions in the God who gave them His Word.
With your help, we aim to provide 86,796 Bibles to the teens in Young Life programs.
“Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.”
(1 Timothy 4:12, NIV)
Here’s How Your Giving Helps
Across the continent of Africa, teens are encountering the One True God who calls them by name. Disciples are making disciples as they study His Word together.
At three-day discipleship camps organized by Young Life, nearly two-thirds of attendees are making commitments to Christ. Here is one student’s story:
"I lost my father when I was very young. I have been raised up by my mom. I am the only child but it hasn't been easy for her to provide for me; we live in an orphan house and my mom is the caretaker of me and other orphans.
"I met Emmanuel (young life leader) when I was in form one. The four years I have known him has made me feel like I have a dad again because I never really had someone to look up to, run to, [seek] wisdom from or be open to when I feel less secure. I have seen God's love through him as he has cares more than I would have asked for.
"Here at Young Life camp I have been taught about how God sees me, that He loves me despite that I fail Him. I hope to go home and fully submit to God as he gave more than a sacrifice just for me."
YES! I want to help.

"I am grateful for the long and fruitful ministry relationship Young Life and Biblica share. This new project is a natural and vital next step for our organizations as we seek to reach Young People with the gospel and teach them to learn from and lean on God’s word in their walk with the Lord."
I praise God for Biblica’s partnership with Young Life to serve the Kingdom. Together we will be able to get more Bibles in the hands of youth throughout Africa, providing them the opportunity to encounter Jesus and be transformed by God’s Word.
“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
