God’s Word for EVERY Child?

Our “impossible” goal to reach every child in every nation with the Gospel

In 1987, during a time of fasting and prayer, I received a vision from God. I saw scenes of children being attacked by Satan—an attempt to literally destroy an entire generation. The targeting of young people and children for destruction broke my heart.

But God didn’t leave me without an answer.

I asked a good friend and ministry partner, Dale Berkey, to pray and fast with me, asking God to reveal His plan for the children around the world to escape this attack. The message I received was very clear, “I want you to take My Word to the children of the world, and you will do it through leaders; I have sent my Word to heal them.”

Responding to the Vision

Since God had specified “His Word” and “leaders,” by faith, we took our first step. We acquired the names of the fifty most powerful people in every Spanish-speaking nation—presidents, ministers of education, and ministers of health—and inscribed their names in gold on beautiful Vida Study Bibles. These Bibles were then presented to the country leaders through missionary friends and Editorial Vida.

As a result, we received invitations to be the guests of presidents in several countries. But most amazingly, an invitation came from the Minister of Education in the country of El Salvador asking if we would provide the Word of God to every child in every school in the country! God was leading the way and showing us how we were to take His Word to the children of the world.

Our team went to work to develop a harmonized Scripture portion specifically for children and youth. The result was El Libro de Vida, or what is known today as the Book of Hope. At that time, a million children in El Salvador were handed God’s Word.

An Impossible Goal?

My son Rob has, since 2009, carried on the vision of OneHope under the banner of “God’s Word. Every Child.”

Do we think our goal of reaching every child around the world with a contextualized Gospel presentation is possible? It sounds too big—and for us it is—but with God, NOTHING is IMPOSSIBLE.

We celebrated reaching our billionth child with God’s Word in February of last year. But we only paused long enough to thank Him for his favor, then kept on going because there is still so much to be done! We have plans to reach nearly 100 million more kids with the Gospel this year through our partnerships with churches, non-profits, schools and governments around the world.

Utilizing research and implementing an outcome-based ministry model has allowed us to develop a variety of tools for churches and other organizations to minister to the wide range of heartfelt needs of children and youth around the world.

We are excited about what God is going to continue to do when we dream big and follow his leading to expand the Kingdom.
