Some people in China are very happy—they have received Bibles of their very own. Some of them had never had a Bible of their own before. Some had given their only Bible away to someone else who needed it. But, they were so happy to learn that people in the United States had prayed for them and given money to buy Bibles just for them!

Christians in Afghanistan are praising God for keeping them safe and bringing them through a very scary time. In 2010, two men were arrested and put in jail because of their faith in Jesus, and one of the country’s leaders said that all Christians should be killed. But, today, the government is not persecuting Christians as much as it had before. Christians usually face hard times from their own families and communities instead.
