Despite increasing persecution in India, Audio Scriptures International is moving ahead with the “Adopt-A- Village” program-in fact, the project is in its next phase. The “Talking Bible” is in production now, and aimed at 10-thousand non-reading villages who have never heard the Gospel. ASI’s Mark Hoekstra. “There are plans to move on with putting together small teams of American short term missionaries or volunteers. These teams could go out with a small recording device, 50 or 100 Talking Bibles; spend six weeks to produce Talking Bibles that they can actually leave behind for the pastors, missionaries and evangelists.” Hoekstra says that despite growing security concerns, the believers in India have a burning desire to share the hope of the Gospel with others. “Continue to pray for the evangelists and pastors. What is happening in India is we are finding pastors and evangelists have already targeted villages that they’re trying to reach, but they do not have the tools to do that.”
