“Food for our spirits”

“Food for our spirits”

God is moving mightily through Audio Bible listening! These testimonies from various places around one Southeast Asian country show the profound changes that Jesus Christ is making in people’s lives:​

“We are farmers and don’t have training, but by listening we are becoming qualified leaders. By listening to the Gospels, I know Jesus more and understand why He came. When I listen, it is easy to remember His miracles. Before, we did not have enough food for three months of each year. After hearing the miracle of Jesus feeding the multitude, we prayed – and God gave us enough food for the whole year.

Before, I didn’t know the Bible. Now, I know it and my life has changed. I used to drink a lot of alcohol; I have given up drinking and smoking. I used to be angry with my family all the time. Now, I have grown in love for them. I was only 21 and had 3 children. Instead of carousing all the time, now I want to serve God full-time.”

“I use the Audio Bible for my devotions and while I travel. The church members use the Audio Bible every day and meet to discuss it. The primary benefit is that the people use it to encourage one another. They can remember the stories and often share them with each other.”
Evangelist

“I used to worship many gods. Even though I was married, I also had many girlfriends. Now I love only my wife and two kids. I am involved in worship ministry. God has saved me.”

"We share our blessings in the surrounding hills."

“Our church has 400 members. By listening we have come to understand our sin, then to know Jesus’ teaching, and then to know salvation. Before listening, our village had many problems including alcoholism, men with many wives, and unforgiveness. After listening, people have given up drinking and carousing and now we have learned to love and forgive each other.”

“It is amazing that every evening we can hear the Audio Bible playing in every house.”

“I want to thank the Lord for the microSD cards that we have received. Since we have no cell phones, we use the cards in digital players. Most of us can’t read. People used to watch Western TV shows all the time and then try to pattern their lives after these shows. Now they don’t watch these shows, but instead they spend all their time listening to the Audio Bible.

They listen all day as they work in the fields. When they have a break, they gather together to discuss what they have heard. This is food for our spirits every day. Our people are now far more active in church. It is hard for us to serve the Lord because we work hard in the fields all day, but we do love the Lord. We share our blessings in the surrounding hills, up to 100 kilometers away.”

“Bible listening helped me change the way that I communicate with others. I used to just correct others all the time. Everyone began to hate me. Now I know the love of God and try to communicate in this love. Before I lived for myself, but now I have offered my life to God.”

I'm not declaring total victory, because it’s common for . . ."
