Faith Comes By Hearing now has Scripture recordings in 715 languages

International (FCBH) — Faith Comes By Hearing (FCBH) has added six new audio New Testament recordings, expanding their unmatched catalog of recorded Scriptures to 715 languages. Spoken in virtually every country in the world, these recordings as a whole represent a potential outreach to more than 5.7 billion people–or in other words, three-quarters of the world's population.

The new releases are:

• Hakka – Taiwan
• Mandinka – Gambia
• Maranao – Philippines
• Mauritian Kreol – Mauritius
• Patamona – Guyana
• Zapoteco, Coatecas Altas – Mexico

Combined, these newest releases represent more than 34.1 million people who now have God's Word in audio available in their heart language. Hakka is the largest of these language groups, spoken by over 29 million people primarily in Taiwan. The smallest is Patamona, with 4,700 speakers.

Faith Comes By Hearing remains committed to the mission of making God's Word freely available to everyone in their heart language and are encouraged that supporters continue to help make this possible.

"Whether it be through resources or technology, our talented and dedicated staff, or ministry partners from all over the world: God's provision continues to make our work possible," states Jerry Jackson, FCBH founder and president.

Jackson has seen the growth of a small tape-lending library established in 1972 to what is now the world's largest resource of digital Bible text, audio, and video. Collectively known as the Digital Bible Platform, Faith Comes By Hearing offers free access to this digital collection of Scripture via streaming, downloads and podcasts, while the and Deaf apps for mobile devices offer access to God's Word right from the palm of your hand.

For those areas that do not yet have regular access to the Internet or mobile devices, Faith Comes By Hearing continues to reach out by providing Audio New Testaments on solar-powered Proclaimers for listening groups. More than 330,000 Proclaimers are literally proclaiming the Gospel around the world.

The ministry's goal is to record and provide access to the Word of God in every translated language, making the fulfillment of the Great Commission a reality in this generation.
