Cette année, Christian Record Services, Inc., (CRS) célèbre ses 120 ans de ministère auprès des aveugles.

Au tout début, Christian Record était le nom du magazine CRS’ Braille. Il s’agissait du seul magazine braille destiné aux chrétiens publié en 1899. Ce nom a été repris par l’organisation à but non lucratif, qui offre également de nombreux services, ainsi que ses magazine  destinés aux personnes aveugles. Christian Record tient encore aujourd’hui ses publications.

Historia de Patricia Maxwell

Este año, Christian Record Services, Inc., (CRS) celebra 120 años de ministerio para los ciegos.

Al principio, Christian Record era el nombre de la revista en Braille de CRS. Fue la única revista en Braille centrada en el cristianismo publicada en 1899. El nombre se transfirió a la organización sin fines de lucro que ahora también brinda muchos servicios, junto con sus revistas, para las personas ciegas. Christian Record todavía se publica hoy.

Christian Record abrió el camino para muchas otras innovaciones y servicios que juntos inspiran y transforman vidas. Fue la primera organización en ofrecer un campamento para ciegos, a partir de los años sesenta.

Have you ever seen a miracle?” When asked, we often stand with a blank look on our faces as we rummage in our memories to find one. God admonished the children of Israel, “Only be careful, and watch yourselves closely so that you do not forget the things your eyes have seen or let them fade from your heart as long as you live. Teach them to your children and to their children after them” (Deut. 4:9, NIV).

Gatz has served in pastoral ministry for 50 years. Over the last 20 years, he pastored the Coudersport, Derrick City, Mount Jewett and Warren churches in Northern Pennsylvania. He and his wife are looking forward to time with family upon retirement—though he will continue to work as a chaplain in his community.
