Faith Comes By Hearing Family:
As we dedicate ourselves to the Lord’s work, we stir up quite a spiritual battle and we covet your prayers for our leadership, employees and their families, and hundreds of partners in the field worldwide.
Thank you for your prayers for the Human Resources Department! Several new staff members have recently been hired, including a Foreign Language Dubbing Tech, Digital Media Administrative Assistant, Building Maintenance Tech, and Deaf Ministry National Coordinator. Please pray as they learn their responsibilities and gain the knowledge of the ministry. Also pray as the department searches for a .NET Developer and a Temporary Domestic Travel Coordinator; for those applying for the positions that need to be filled; and for the department as they continue to implement software modules. Continue to pray for the health, safety, and protection of our staff and their families.
Funding Opportunities (both nationally and internationally):
We are so grateful for those who have chosen to partner with us in this work! Please pray that the Lord will continue to move on the hearts of those with resources to give so that everyone can have access to God’s Word in their language.
Digital Bible Platform:
Now with more than 278 million users from virtually every country in the world, people are engaging with God’s Word more than ever via streams, downloads, podcasts, apps, radio, and satellite! Please pray for:
- the team as they enhance and expand the Bible.is apps and Radio Network to include new and exciting devices.
- upcoming new technological initiatives to get God’s Word to the world.
- word to spread internationally about the more than 800 Bible texts, audios, and videos that are available free of charge through multiple digital platforms and Internet radio stations.
- donors considering funding for major expansion of these initiatives.
Deaf Bible Ministry:
Thank you for praying! More than 190,000 people have downloaded the Deaf Bible app. Please continue to pray for:
- our Deaf Bible Ministry team as they educate people about the needs of the Deaf communities worldwide; and as they promote the app.
- new languages to be added as they become available.
- our team of developers as they continue to work on improvements and new technologies for distribution.
Every Church Every Village Program:
To date, more than 38,000 Proclaimers have reached churches and villages in hundreds of countries around the world through U.S. short-term mission trips. Please continue to pray for open doors and open hearts for the people in these countries who are receiving the Proclaimers.
Military BibleStick Program:
According to the Department of Defense, vets account for 20% of all suicides in the U.S. Those returning from Iraq and Afghanistan are the youngest, ranging in age from 17 to 24. Please continue to pray for the men and women in uniform either coming home or being deployed – again.
The team here at FCBH is hard at work as they head into the heaviest concentration on the Military BibleStick Program (Sept-Dec) with Patriot Day, Veterans Day, and Christmas. Please pray as they contact pastors during these final months of the year to raise funds for 50,000 more BibleSticks.
