The literacy rate is slowly 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 stand firm and grow in the 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 necessary, as electricity is not readily available in these remote areas.

SHARE has distributed more than 9,000 Audio Bibles among the Turkana, Toposa, and Nyang’atom people-groups! 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 the device with their Lighthouses, and pastors use it in their Sunday morning sermons. It is encouraging to the area Motivators/missionaries to witness their congregations listening and learning from the Word of God.

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 the families will take turns passing it along. It costs about $25 (KShs.3,000) per Audio Bible. Please consider making a donation towards 1 or more Audio Bibles to be gifted to a believer in a remote village.

Our goal is to continue to give out these Audio Bibles to the believers in East Africa, 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!

“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” – 2 Timothy 3:16-17
