A woman who is homeless was able to be placed in the new women’s homeless shelter in town. The shelter is a faith based shelter and will always have bibles on hand to share with the guests if they desire one. There was one guest at the facility who was feeling very blessed to have a place to sort out her issues and had begun taking an interest in church worship and bible studies and had requested a bible. The translation of the bible she was reading was presenting some challenges for her given her reading level. A volunteer had suggested the NIrV translation, which is an early reader’s version, which is well suited for youth and easy to read. While it was a youth bible the woman was very excited to be able to easily read the chapters and verses and was thrilled that the Word was coming alive for her. She also has two middle school children that she thought when she visited with them they could read it together and when she was ready for a different translation she planned to pass it on to her kids.
