Beorn lives in Indiana where he attends the New Castle First Baptist Church. Beorn loves Jesus! Last December, at the age of 7, he was baptized. At his baptism, he said, “I want to give myself as a gift to Jesus for Christmas.”
Beorn volunteers at Special Olympics and enjoys helping special needs children. He is active in gymnastics, and he especially likes to play with Legos. He saved money for a long time to buy a Star Wars Lego toy.
Every night before bed, Beorn and his family have a worship time. They read from the Bible and pray, and Beorn works on Bible memory verses for his church’s AWANA program. Beorn understands the importance of studying and learning God’s Word.
Christians in some places around the world also understand the importance of learning God’s Word, but they don’t have Bibles to study. Beorn and his family learned about these Christians from the April 2014 The Voice of the Martyrs newsletter Special Bible Issue. VOM offered the opportunity for readers to purchase Bibles for persecuted Christians who had requested Bibles.
Beorn’s parents asked if he wanted to help VOM provide Bibles for Christians who don’t have them. They told him they would double the amount he gave. After thinking and praying, Beorn offered enough money from his Lego fund to pay for five Bibles. His parents doubled his offering and sent money for 15 Bibles to VOM.
Total: 15 Bibles
