I first heard about The Gideons as a child when they visited our school to tell us about their work, this was over 40 years ago. I am now a regular church goer although I cannot say that I have lived as a committed Christian.
I am now 54 years old and last week found myself in hospital in Hove, East Sussex, for a hip replacement operation. I am not brave and was very anxious indeed.
As I waited to be called for surgery, I looked in the bedside cabinet and finding a Gideon Bible, started to read the notes at the front about how to use the Bible. I was immediately very comforted and spent some time following the guidance to read certain passages. Time passed and before I knew it, I was called to theatre and it was all over.
I remain very thankful indeed for the help I received that day. I have made a donation today to help you continue your valuable work so that some others can benefit as I have.
I hope that you will be able to continue to carry out this quiet good deed into the future.
If you have been helped by a Gideon Bible in some way and would like to donate towards our work so that more people can benefit from the comfort that God’s Word brings, please click here and give today.
