Diverse ethnologue continues bringing hope to the world

By October 21, 2013

International (FCBH) — Faith Comes By Hearing (FCBH) recently added six languages to their expanding catalog of recorded Scripture. Now at 751 languages, these recordings, as a whole, represent a potential outreach to more than 5.7 billion people in 189 countries, which equates to over 80% of the world's population.

The new releases include:

K'iche' Cunén – Guatemala
Madi – Uganda
Merey – Cameroon
Nangnda – Chad
Ngaju – Indonesia
Nyaboa – Cote d'Ivoire

Ngaju is the largest people group of the six, while the smallest is K'iche' Cunén, spoken by about 9,000 people in Guatemala. Combined, these newest releases represent more than 1.3 million people who now have God's Word in audio available in their heart language.

The ministry is also pleased to announce that a full New Testament recording of Nahuatl, Guerrero will replace the portions that were previously available. Nahuatl, Guerrero is a language spoken in Mexico by about 150,000 people.

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

"Whether it be our talented and dedicated staff, our generous donors, or ministry partners from all over the world, we have one purpose: to get God's Word to every person," 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 Scripture content. Collectively known as the Digital Bible Platform, Faith Comes By Hearing offers free access to this digital collection of Scripture via downloads, podcasts, and streaming, while the Bible.is and Deaf Bible apps for mobile devices offer access to God's Word right from the palm of your hand. Approved developers and ministries can also have free access to the content on the Digital Bible Platform to incorporate into their apps, software, and Web sites.

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 340,000 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.

Pray that God would prepare the hearts of the people who will be receiving His Word.
