India (MNN) — You probably remember the childhood fable of the tortoise and the hare.
The two begin a race, and the hare quickly leaves his opponent in the dust. Confident in his ability to win, the hare settles down for a bit of shut-eye halfway through the course. Tired but continuing along steadily, the tortoise overtakes the snoozing speedster for a win.
Hence, the phrase and moral lesson, "Slow but steady wins the race," continues to pass along from generation to generation.
Audio Scripture Ministries cohort World Cassette Outreach of India (WCOI) is personifying this concept in Bangalore.
ASM began raising funds to construct a new ministry center several years ago. The old building was torn down at the end of 2012, and work began on a new center to take its place.
The first level was finished in June, and ASM says the four-floor building's skeleton should be completed in a few weeks. At that point, workers will move inside to begin constructing the building's interior.
Pray for continual safety of the workers.
WCOI gets God's Word in audio to forgotten groups like the disabled and illiterate. This new ministry center will help them work more quickly and efficiently.
At the same time construction is progressing in Bangalore, a new branch of ministry is taking root in nearby Nepal. Demand for audio Bibles is rising in this previously-isolated country, and WCOI leaders are making connections with Nepalese pastors.
Pray that distributions of Nepalese audio Scriptures can begin soon.
Even though work continues on the new ministry center in Bangalore, financial support is still needed for this project. Click here to make a difference.
