International (MNN) — Gloria didn’t think anything could change. She and her husband fought all the time. He drank all day. Shouting and violence made up their life.

But then, she heard the Gospel from one of Faith Comes By Hearing’s audio Bibles called, The Proclaimer.

Gloria listened to the Scriptures read over the device in her native language, Sanumá. Soon, God touched her with His Word, and she placed her faith in Jesus Christ as her Savior.

Gloria then began to pray for her family.

Things did not improve, however. They got worse. Gloria’s relationship with her husband deteriorated, and he left home. Then, one of their children became very ill.

Yet, during all of this, Gloria refused to become discouraged. Instead, she prayed and continued to listen to God’s Word, all the while encouraging others to listen with her. It was then that her husband returned home with a changed heart.

After their child began to recover, Gloria’s husband came to her to tell her he’d asked God for forgiveness. Soon, they were praying before God, together.

Gloria’s story is just one example of the impact being made with audio Bibles from FCBH.

Looking back at 2015, here’s what God did.

2015 Impacts
