4000 copies or 40% of Nepal’s fourth edition of The Word for Today were destroyed in 2015 earthquake.
Distribution of the fifth edition was made more difficult by politics and an embargo from a neighbouring country. Only 7000 copies were able to be printed and distributed.
Despite crisis and difficulty, Message of Hope (Nepal’s equivalent of Vision) has persevered in reaching people with the devotional.
THEY’VE BEEN ENCOURAGED BY THE MANY TESTIMONIES COMING IN:
‘I’ve been reading The Word for Today each day, receiving blessings and joy. In my Church, I have asked many believers to read this daily devotion. It’s helped people to study the Bible on a regular basis and has changed peoples lives and brought blessings.’ – Ps. Gaurav
‘After getting The Word for Today from my church, I’ve been reading it daily with my other family members. The many topics and illustrations used in each devotion are heart touching and have helped us in our spiritual growth. The SoulFood has also helped us read the Bible together with my family which has encouraged us.’ – Khel
