For the majority of my life I have believed in God feeling and speaking to Him as I do to other humans. Even in frustration I have argued with Him. No one could and cannot shake nor break my faith and belief in Him. I was raised catholic by tradition, yet I wasn't a true walker of His path. It has only been recently that I have decided to give in to His will. I was lost and broken for many years. Yet my faith was unbreakable, and even though for me, it was only I speaking to Him, I know he never left me. It wasn't until recently that my fiance and I embarked in a relationship that I started hearing God speak to me. My eyes were opened and his unending presence in my life was reveal to me. The story of the relationship between my fiance and I is a hard one, yet divine as well as God has been involved and intervened. Yet this testimonial isn't about that story, it is only supplemental. For her, I changed my life around and began to walk towards our Father. I was invited to live the Acts retreat and after several invites I finally gave in. I lived it thanks to Resurrection of Our Lord Church in San Antonio. And at the internal ceremonies, we were given a bible. I had been wanting an English one so that one day I could indulge my curiosities of God's word. I also wanted to have a connection with my mother and something we could bond over. Her love for Christ is so expansive, it was truly inspirational. Even after I received it, i hadn't read it. There was still darkness in my heart, I was still lost, broken. After traumatic moments in the months after, God's will became ever more true, giving light to realizations of His love and plan. The true poison in my heart was revealed, and the healing of God's Love was in motion. I began walking his path only recently, began reading the bible, learning of Jesus and His place in our faith. I have been reading the daily verses and feeling them in my heart. So much that I have a need to express my love for God with any opportunity given in conversations. A younger co-worker of mine has gravitated to me and my love for God has only reinforced our friendship, although he has realized his faith as strongly. By God's will I chose his name in the Secret Santa gift arrangement we have here at my work. I immediately had urgency to gift him the Word of our Lord. My first bible, given to me at such a special occasion, with such life as the experience of receiving it and reading it has been filled with the Holy Spirit, deserves tremendous gratitude due to CityOf.com for having provided the bibles. Naturally I investigated the moment I was compelled to also share the Word with this young man, so I reached out to see if my plea would inspire compassion and provide me with one. Not even half and hour later I received a call from Michael who works at the Bible Foundation. Unfortunately I was unable to answer because I was at work, yet he left me a voicemail expressing his happiness for my longing to bring someone closer to God and Jesus and stated that he was creating the mailing label and placing it out to ship that very day so that I receive it in time for the gift exchange. So all this, my apologies for the length, is really a message of gratitude to Michael and CityOf.com for your mission. Thank you, and God bless you.
We ordered approx 100 Bibles for a men's retreat, however, unfortantly they didn't arrive in time (my fault not City of Agape's). However, we decided to give them away at our Oktoberfest booth this year and they were a huge hit! We want to order more for next year and give away the Word of God to many more souls. It was truly amazing to see so many children and adults request that Bible! God Bless
Amazing site, very inspirational. Many thanks.
I am learning more from God everyday thanks to the Daily "Good News"
Thank you so much for the great job you are doing. you are always remembered.
At first I was the egg. Hard and fast. Then I was the carrot. Shaken and fallen. Through the power and love of Christ, I am now the coffee bean. He has taught me so much now that I choose to listen and obey.
I am stunned by your awesome ‘good news’ link. I have prayed that GOD would show me his will in my business endeavor, and if it be that I should be successful, please show the way. When I saw your good news, I knew. I thanked Jesus. Thanks

Thank you for the inspirational writings ! This site is MAKING A DIFFERENCE !!
I want to thank you for your free Bibles that you sent to our church. I know the benefits have reaped rewards. Just today, two years after having our teens give away Bibles to other teens a teen told me he considered himself an atheist his Junior year after being raised in the faith. A teen approached him and handed him a Bible and invited him to come to our youth group to learn more. He admits a spark was lit and grew into a desire to know more and serve more. He and his parents are eternally grateful for your help. God bless you for your ministry.
What a sweet surprise and a great gift to me: I received 50 new, elegant bibles and completely free on the feastday of St. Jerome. My bible class will be easier for me, because from now on my beloved students will never have an excuse of not having a bible at home to do the Homework readings and journal writing. I am thrill. Thank God and thank you so much. May God continue to multiply His blessings upon you, you loved ones, and your work. Pray for me also. Please.
