Nelson Morales has been waiting on the Lord. As the field director with one of the David Caleb Cook Foundation’s partners in Guatemala, he delivers copies of The Action Bible to public schools, where these engaging, comic-style Bible books are used for character education and reading instruction. But with schools closed and children staying home with their families to slow the rate of COVID infections, Nelson has been missing one of his favorite parts of his ministry.
When Nelson received a request to distribute copies of The Action Bible to isolated families, he was delighted to respond. Carefully respecting the government’s requirements to wear a mask and remain socially distant, Nelson coordinated his delivery of The Action Bible with a local government food distribution to families in need.
Families reported that they believe their children will benefit from reading these captivating Bible stories—and many parents are reading The Action Bible with their children, bringing hope to whole families in this dark and difficult time.
Though Nelson longs for the day when he can be back in schools teaching children what it means to be followers of Jesus, he is content to wait on God’s timing.
“No matter where we live, we are all facing difficult times,” Nelson said. “As we navigate our lives during this COVID outbreak, we need to remember that God is still in control of it all.”
Please pray for protection and provision for the people of Guatemala—and for God to continue to reveal new ways to share His hope with Guatemalan families. To find out more about Nelson’s ministry to public schools, watch this video about his outreach prior to COVID-19.
