Once a nation known for drug cartels and violence, today Colombians are experiencing a new chapter in their history—but they still need to accept the gospel of Christ's grace and rebuild their country upon the Word of God to experience lasting transformation.
Canadian Gideons were invited back to Colombia in May 2015 to bring God's Word and to share the Good News of the gospel with people living in the capital city of Bogotá. Pray today for over 10,000 Colombians who responded positively to the offer of salvation and accepted a free New Testament.
