Literacy is progressing in Turkanaland, however there are still many that don’t know how to read and write. Believers long to hear the word of God, so that they can grow in their faith. Many believers already have the Word of God in the form of an Audio Bible that has been recorded in the Turkana language! These devices are solar powered, which is beneficial as there is very little electricity in many homes.
SHARE has purchased 6,728 Audio Bibles – 5,728 for distribution in Turkanaland, and 1,000 in Toposa! The results have been phenomenal: men sitting under a tree, shepherd boys out in the desert tending their flocks, women sitting in groups preparing meals, families sitting together in the evening, all listening to the Word of God. Champions use it with their Lighthouses, pastors use it in their Sunday morning messages. It is encouraging to the area Motivators to hear their congregations listening and learning daily from the Word of God.
Our goal is to continue to give out these Audio Bibles to the people of Turkanaland and Toposaland, so that they will ALL have access to the Word of God. Many have come to Christ and been baptized because of hearing the Word of God in their own language!
When a village receives just 1 Audio Bible, the families of that village will listen to the Word of God, sometimes together with other families or they will pass it to the next family so that they can also listen. It costs about $25-50/KShs.2,500-5,000 to purchase an Audio Bible. Please consider making a donation towards 1 or more Audio Bibles for the Turkana or Toposa people.
