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! As the work of the Lord increases, we have been able to fill four positions: one National Program Coordinator, one Scrum Master, one Digital Media Specialist, and one Print Operator. We are also looking to fill two more positions. Please pray as the new staff members learn their responsibilities quickly and gain the knowledge of the ministry; also for guidance in selecting the right people for the positions we still have available. Please 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 (DBP)
More than 325 million people from virtually every country in the world are engaging with God’s Word digitally as well as through listening programs in the field. As you think of these people and the ministry, please join us in prayer for:
- godly insight and invigoration for our digital teams as they look into emerging technologies to expand the Kingdom and bring God’s Word to everyone everywhere.
- ongoing protection and clarity for our development teams as they constantly look for the most efficient ways to expand the digital reach with the complexities of worldwide connectivity.
- continued success for and proper functionality of all our current digital platforms: DBP, Bible.is family of apps, downloads, podcasts, Bible.is Radio Network, satellite TV, and more.
- those who have captured the ministry’s vision and are considering promoting and funding the expansion of these initiatives.
- the technologies that carry God’s Word – that they may flourish and reach those who are hungry to receive it in their heart language – that His Name may be glorified.
Deaf Bible Society
Thank you for praying! Nearly 500,000 people have engaged with God’s Word in any one of the 16 sign languages available. Deaf Bible is growing at such a rate that it can no longer be simply a ministry of Faith Comes By Hearing. Please pray as we work through the legal process of establishing the Deaf Bible Society, a non-profit ministry that will stand on its own as a separate 501(c)3.
Every Church Every Village Program
To date, more than 39,000 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
Thank you for your prayers! In honor of the 14th anniversary of active-duty deployment, we want to send 14,000 Military BibleSticks to our Veterans and service members by the end of August. Please pray as we continue to provide this much-needed tool for the Troops (currently at 540,000+).
