We have something to shout about!
God’s Word is being proclaimed in every nation – and you are making it possible. To date, Scripture is available in 886 languages spoken or signed by 5.7 billion people in nearly every country.
God speaks to us in so many ways, but Scripture has to top the list. (Surprise! An Audio Bible ministry promoting the Bible. Who knew?) Whether through reading, listening, or being reminded of verses by the Spirit, we are challenged, changed, and renewed by His Word.

Does anyone use Bible cassette tapes in 2015? The answer is YES! In the 1970s, cassette tapes were the cutting edge of technology.

I close my eyes and I see them. They are coming from every direction. Some have walked miles down narrow dirt trails. Others arrive exhausted after working all day in the fields. Women are carrying young ones on their hips; their older children are walking barefoot beside them, or running to catch up after being distracted by a stray dog, a butterfly, or another barefoot child.
