American Bible Society’s 2012 Annual Report chronicles our ministry to bring the power and message of God’s Word where it’s needed most. Through our programs and partnerships, we’ve brought the Bible’s life-changing message to more than 45 million people in the United States and around the world in 2012 alone. We thank those who have faithfully supported our ongoing domestic and international ministry programs, which serve the needs of the whole Church:
- America’s armed forces
- Church leaders eager for Bible resources
- Young adults seeking online ministry
- Disaster survivors across the globe
- Entire populations of people who have never before experienced God’s Word in their heart language.
It is our privilege to offer the hope of God’s Word to millions of people. Please pray that we will continue to fulfill our mission: To make the Bible available to every person in a language and format each can understand, so all people may experience its life-changing message.
