In late August, The Gideons International conducted a one-week International Scripture Blitz in Argentina.

As a team of Gideons distributed Scriptures at a college campus in Cordoba, a gentleman walked up and introduced himself. He then reached into his back pocket and pulled out a worn, blue New Testament. He told them he received it from Gideons back when he was in college. He read it and gave his life to the Lord 32 years ago. Today he is a local attorney and still carries that New Testament.

We praise the Lord for this testimony. God’s Word changes lives. And we pray right now it’s changing the lives of others in Argentina and beyond.

How thankful I am to hear of Peter’s initiative. I’ve been thinking about the fires around here (Chico)–a large one in Oroville, the huge one in Lake County, the massaive one below Lake Tahoe. Let’s all use our used hotel Bibles and get busy!
