“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.”
Psalm 119:105


Welcome to 2017: YEAR OF THE BIBLE 5 minutes a day, also known as 2017 YB5.

You are invited to join thousands of El Pasoans to invest 5 minutes a day to read, or listen to, the entire New Testament in 2017.  It is life changing!

The reading schedule is available free at any of the participating churches (click on Churches).  They also have free, easy-to understand, Catholic-approved New Testaments if you need one. For electronic devices click the button below

The inspiration for YB5 came during prayer and was successfully done through 58 El Paso churches in 1997 and nationwide by the American Bible Society in 1999 (click on Background). Plans are underway to do YB5 worldwide in 2020.

YB5 is also a good way to encourage our family, friends and neighbors to read the New Testament (click on Multiplication).
