Even as India remains in turmoil over parliamentary elections, evangelistic work continues. Audio Scriptures International’s Harvey Hoekstra says they are concerned for the believers acting on behalf of ASI’s “Adopt-a-Village” outreach program. “In some of the villages where people have turned from Hinduism to Christ, there is opposition. Recently, one of the coordinators in the “Adopt a Village” program and his wife and their son were attacked during the middle of the night. Fortunately, there were no deaths, but this was an effort to put fear in their hearts.” Hoekstra explains what the “Talking Bible” project. “This is a version which has an entire New Testament in whatever language one wants to use. These 500 units will be field tested in the “Adopt a Village” program in India. In villages where there is a very high percentage of non-readers, someone volunteers to gather the people together to listen to the Scripture in their language.”
