Bibles are helping people learn to read in rural China.
By receiving a Bible people learn the story of Jesus and find hope in His kingdom.
They also build literacy skills and change their lives in more ways than one.
Kurt Rovenstine with Bibles For China says they have seen elementary readers learn to read well with the assistance of a Bible and audio Bible.
He told Mission Network News through this process, people have come to faith in Christ and been baptised.
Mr Rovenstine says, God has been good in keeping the doors open for Bible distribution despite the pandemic.
Five months into this year, they have had more requests for Bibles than in any previous year.
They intend to increase their work in teaching literacy to those hungry to learn.
