Christmas musicals are still popular and well attended even by those who are not active in a church. Those who are blind tend to love music but miss the seasonal joys because they were not invited or because they don’t have transportation. Please encourage your church to make a special effort to invite the Blind in your community to your musical this Christmas!
NEW SERVICE OPTIONS
The Center for the Blind of the Assemblies of God is excited to introduce three new services. Beginning with the 2014-15 winter quarter, LIVE, God’s Word for Today and Take 5 are now available electronically along with the Adult Student Guide and the Adult Teacher Guide. Qualified people who are blind and registered with this ministry can subscribe to receive these Bible study and devotional publications through email.
For more information please connect the CftB.
Do your prayers and financial support make a difference?
We received the digital recording of the New Living Bible. It has been a great blessing to my husband that he can once more “read” God’s word.
When I called to inquire about getting the Bible, I asked which version, thinking it would be the King James that my husband was used to. When told it was the New Living Bible, I made an awful, ungrateful statement, “that’s better than nothing.” Please forgive my thoughtlessness.
Since receiving the Bible, we have been listening together some & sometimes he uses earphones. I have realized that the New Living Bible is so much easier to listen to. When reading the King James version, I sometimes have to re-read a verse or passage several or more times to understand it. With this version it is almost like reading a non-fiction novel – so much easier for persons who are blind.
Anyway, thanks again for the Bible. You all are doing a great work.
A Word From His Word
I will lead blind Israel down a new path, guiding them along an unfamiliar way. I will brighten the darkness before them and smooth out the road ahead of them. Yes, I will indeed do these things; I will not forsake them. [Isaiah 42:16] [NLT]

Our primary objective is to see the Blind and Visually Impaired come to know Christ and grow in His knowledge and grace. We are a General Council of the Assemblies of God US Missions ministry. Please give us the honor of serving you or someone you know. Comments and suggestions are always welcome.
