Be An Audio Bible Ambassador!

February 5, 2009 at 10:53 am (Announcements) (, , , , , , , , , )

Sometimes I get super excited about something. So excited that I’m basically bouncing in my seat. This is one of those times. One of the mission organizations that I’m already super excited about is Faith Comes by Hearing, a group in Albuquerque, New Mexico that records dramatized audios of the word of God in many languages for distribution all over the world. The results are breathtaking! Especially in audio visual/traditional tribal cultures the dramatized audio captures the hearts and minds of the people for Christ and brings about huge transformations–entire villages! On the cutting edge of technology, they’ve developed solar-powered players that native missionaries can carry from village to village playing the word of God and now they are taking advantage of the 21st centuries Roman Road–the internet. You can download the audio Bible in MP3 from their website–free! And here’s what I’m super excited about–they are setting up a network that functions much like Skype, using a user to user interface to store pieces of the audio Bible in different languages on the hard drives of “host” computers. You can be a host! When you download the Audio Bible you can click a little button that says “share this” and instantly you will download the Bible in languages you can’t even understand–so that others wanting to download those languages will snag pieces of the Bible from you as well as other computers for a complete recording. It makes the program super cheap, super fast, super accessible and, get this, virtually untraceable. Perfect for distribution in countries where persecution is rife. No risk of being blacklisted or blocked when the info comes from a million computers across the world. Even the third-world countries are not so third-world–the internet has infiltrated where missionaries dare not tread!

In case you’re concerned about FCBH, I’ve actually been to their headquarters (several years ago–the year the Proclaimer came out), toured their buildings and almost got to record, even! These folks are the real deal. They’re on fire, simple, sincere and are pouring their lives and hearts and minds into this work–and God is blessing it! Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God…

To download the Audio Bible click here. You’ll have access to all the languages recorded. Be sure to click “share this” if you want to be an Audio Bible ambassador! You should be able to log in and even see how many people (and approximate locations) your computer has reached! Exciting or not?

Now you can see why I’m bouncing.

Blessings,

    Exciting stuff, Abigail! I love it when a Christian organization doesn’t just say “me, too” to what the world is doing, but uses technology for the glory of God and remains forward thinking like Faith Comes By Hearing. Thanks for posting!
