The Canadian Bible Society just returned from Humboldt after handing out personalized Bibles to the families affected by the bus crash. 

Canadian Bible Society's (CBS) Development Officer for Western Canada, Reg Graves, just returned home from a trip to Humboldt, where he dropped off personalized Bibles to all the families affected by the Humboldt bus crash in April. 

"We felt that they raised over $15 million and that's really important," Graves said. "But that doesn't take care of their hearts."

humboldt bibleA customized Bible to be given to Tyler Bieber's family. Bieber was the Humboldt Bronco's play-by-play announcer. (Canadian Bible Society)CBS produced 29 custom Bibles, with 13 being presented 'in honour' to the survivor's, while 16 are being given 'in memory' to the victim's families.

"There is still an amazing sense of grief," Graves said about the trip.

Because of the amount of media the small town has received, many families are difficult to get a hold of. But Graves was able to talk to one of the couples, who lost their 20-year-old son in the crash.

"You could see the grief in their faces," Graves said, but then switched to a more hopeful tone. "When I presented them the Bible, they both stood there in tears and were so appreciative."

The family had recently found their son's Bible, with a verse highlighted in it. That verse brought them so much hope and Graves hopes they will continue to seek out that hope in the scriptures and in God.

Graves hopes these Bibles will give them peace and hope, as well as remind them that they are being prayed for.

"I really feel like the support of scriptures will make a difference in their lives," Graves said.

Graves wasn't able to personally hand out many of the Bibles due to connection difficulties. He has nine left to give away in Alberta, which he hopes to be able to do in person.
