Share Bible teacher Priscilla Shirer’s Awaken Gathering brings women together in the Dallas, Fort Worth area to worship, fellowship and learn God’s word—but that’s not all.

Last week, the ladies also rallied around another great cause: donating Bibles to Champions of Hope, a Christ-centered mentoring organization, so young readers could have access to Jesus Storybook Bibles, NIV and ESV Bibles.

What an awesome ministry initiative—one that the 4,500 conference attendees supported in big numbers!

She noted that the ones pictured were “just a small portion of the thousands” the women brought with them to the gathering.

“So grateful for everyone's generosity!” the 42-year-old best-selling author and actress continued. “No better gift than God's Word!!”

Having thousands of Bibles to distribute will help the young people grow in the word of God.

“We are cheering for Champions of Hope!” said Shirer. “Celebrating your work in the community!”
