India (MNN) — 2013 has started with a bang in India.
The World Cassette Outreach of India (WCOI), a ministry partner of Audio Scripture Ministries, is making good headway on the construction of the new Ministry Center in Bangalore.
The old facilities were outdated and prone to annual flooding, so WCOI knew it was time for a new building. However, finding the land to build became a problem. The solution: tear down the existing old building and rebuild on the same site.
The old building has already been demolished, and construction teams have begun pouring concrete for the pillars that will serve as the foundation for the new Ministry Center. Work is progressing steadily as the internal structures are built. WCOI reports that even while work on the new building has ushered in a season of transition, it has not slowed down the ministry.
In January 2013, WCOI provided audio Bibles to more people than they were able to do in all of 2012. That trajectory is expected to continue as the WCOI team is stepping up distributions of audio Scriptures to groups of blind or visually impaired people. Additionally, the ministry is looking into the opening of an office in Nepal. A huge demand for audio Bibles has begun to surface from this previously isolated country.
Pray for current recording projects of the Old Testament in Gujarati, Malayalam, and Kannada in India. Pray for the WCOI team as they plan to record the full Bible in all major Indian languages.
