Claudia and Diego were both born in Colombia and raised in the Catholic Church. After relocating to California and after the birth of their first child, they began to realize that they did not truly understand the Gospel. They had not grown up in churches that were scripture-based and where conviction was a common topic. Claudia began to read the Bible for herself and realized they needed to make a change. They began a process of living according to what they were learning in God’s Word.
Claudia and Diego purchased an Audio Bible through our website in September of 2020. They later reached out to our team with the idea of purchasing players for distribution among the homeless in their city. Prior to this, Claudia and Diego would spend the holiday seasons throwing parties for their friends and family. This all changed when they began to understand the importance of God’s Word. For the past 4 years, they have spent their holidays taking blankets and sweaters to the homeless of California.
As their family did this, they realized that the homeless did not prefer a hard-copy Bible that was heavy to carry around. So they had an idea. They placed solar-powered Audio Bibles within the blankets they hand out to the homeless, allowing these people to enjoy God’s Word without the need to carry a heavy Bible, and without the need for electricity.
Claudio and Diego’s family’s commitment to spreading God’s Word does not stop at distributing audio Bibles. They have made use of the sweaters they hand out by imprinting Bible verses onto these with the hope that they will spark conversation between the homeless people. They desire for people to engage with God’s Word and truly understand the Gospel just as they did years ago.
