Stories of Lives Changed

Every day, hundreds of thousands of Bibles and New Testaments are placed by The Gideons in the busy traffic lanes of life all over the world. These Scriptures remain there, waiting to touch the lives of ordinary people who pick them up and read them.  Isaiah 55:11 declares that God’s Word will not return to Him empty, but will accomplish His purposes. Sometimes, the stories of how these Scriptures have changed lives come back to bless us. 

Here, you too can share in the joy of watching their testimonies and reading their stories. 

If your life has been touched by a Gideon-placed Scripture, please tell us about it so we can share in your joy.
