Including Takia, spoken in Papua New Guinea by 19,000 people.

Celebrating 40 Years in Ministry

Combined, these nine languages represent more than 478,000 people that now have an Audio Bible available in their heart language.

Faith Comes By Hearing has added nine new language recordings to their catalog of Audio Scriptures. The new releases are:

  •     Avokaya – South Sudan
  •     Kapsiki – Cameroon
  •     Konso – Ethiopia
  •     Latin – Vatican City State
  •     Luwo – South Sudan
  •     Ndogo – South Sudan
  •     Palauan – Palau
  •     Takia – Papua New Guinea
  •     Tuwali Ifugao – Philippines

Combined, these nine languages represent more than 478,000 people that now have an Audio Bible available in their heart language. These recordings are possible because of dedicated translation work by: Wycliffe Bible Translators, The Bible League, United Bible Societies, and the Bible Societies of Cameroon, Ethiopia, Papua New Guinea, and Sudan.

The Latin recording was done in partnership with Vatican Press for use in Catholic seminaries, parishes, and personal individual study around the world.

Faith Comes By Hearing is also releasing a second Portuguese recording this month. It is a European version that will join the current Brazilian recording to better reach the more than 177 million people who share Portuguese as their heart language.

The ministry's catalog, the single largest resource of Audio Bibles in the world, now features a total of 610 languages. Spoken in more than 185 countries, these recordings represent a potential outreach to more than 5 billion people.

Faith Comes By Hearing offers free access to Audio Bibles through streaming and podcasts, while the Bible.is app for iPhone, iPad and Android devices now offers access to both audio and written Bibles in more than 600 languages.

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. As of September 2011, more than 290,000 Proclaimers are proclaiming God's Word around the world.

In 2012, Faith Comes By Hearing will celebrate its 40th year in ministry, continuing to focus on their mission to record and provide Audio New Testaments in every translated language, making the fulfillment of the Great Commission a reality.
