God's Word Brings Salvation

"… it is the power of God for salvation" - Romans 1:16

"My family was crashing against a wall of evil," says Matthew. One day he noticed a Gideon-placed Bible in a hospital in Maine where he worked as an M.D. He began reading and realized God's Word was Truth. He surrendered his life to the Lord. In time, his wife and children were saved as well. Today they all serve in ministry.

God's Word Is Transformational

"For the word of God is living and active." - Hebrews 4:12

A guerilla military group intercepted a team of Gideons in the middle of a Columbian jungle. One of the Gideons spoke up. "You have no fear because of those guns you carry. We have no fear because we carry God's Word. Your troops are very numerous. I would like to empower them with God's Word." The guerillas then led the Gideons to their base. That evening, Gideons shared Scriptures and led hundreds of soldiers to Christ.

God's Word Brings Hope

"… and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope." - Romans 15:4

Ravi was raised in an upper-caste Hindu family in India. In college, he became depressed and planned return to his hometown to end his life. On the journey, a Gideon gave him a New Testament and shared the Gospel. After Ravi arrived at his destination, rather than commit suicide, he became a born-again follower of Jesus. Today he shares God's Word through The Gideons International.
