Chiapas: Daniela and Her New Book
Daniela had a beautiful new book. She brought the book to school, where it got a lot of attention from the other children. Many students asked if they could borrow it.
The book was a children’s Bible, and Daniela had received it from a man who distributes Bibles for The Voice of the Martyrs in Chiapas, Mexico.

Daniela became a one-person library. She made a list of everyone who wanted to borrow the new book, and she checked it out to each child for one day.
“As a mom, I’m very happy to see what my daughter is doing,” said Daniela’s mom. “Many kids in her classroom had no knowledge of the Bible. Some of them had never even see a Bible before.”
The Voice of the Martyrs’ contact in Chiapas will now provide Bibles for all Daniela’s friends who have been borrowing the Bible.
Daniela’s mom said, “Thank the brothers [Christians] who had the idea of printing the Bibles and giving them away. This year has been a blessing for my kids and I’m sure for the many other kids who have received Bibles, too.”
