Two people listening to a Proclaimer device.
Poverty is widespread in Niger, and many are illiterate and unable to access the Scriptures. By offering them a dramatized audio Bible through a special Proclaimer device, Scripture engagement has become an enjoyable and exciting activity for entire families.

People are flocking to parishes that have listening groups – and pastors have told us that attendance rates in every church service have skyrocketed!

Pastor Jean Beidou says that his church grew more with the Proclaimer in six months than it had in the past three years! “We owe thanks to the Almighty God for the audio Bibles listening program,” he tells us. “Ever since it began, our church keeps increasing in numbers.”

Unlocking God’s Word through audio and large-print Scriptures, and literacy training

If we are to realize our vision of bringing God’s Word to all nations of the world, it’s not enough to distribute Bibles and hope for the best. To truly reach those who need it most, and help people engage with God’s Word, it’s critical to provide Scriptures in formats that people can use and understand.

In Bangladesh, Niger, Bolivia and Pakistan, the Canadian Bible Society and local Bible Societies are working together to unlock God’s Word through audio and large-print Scriptures, and literacy training.
  • In Bangladesh and Niger –where many are illiterate and unable to access the Scriptures due to poverty – the audio Bible is like music to their ears. Through an audio device called Proclaimer, communities can access God’s Word.
  • In Bolivia, people with poor eye-sight – especially the elderly – are now able to read God’s Word through large-print Scriptures.
  • In Pakistan, one of the countries with lowest literacy rates, women are provided the opportunity to learn how to read and write through Bible-based literacy programs. It’s a great way to teach them new skills while opening their minds to their true value in God’s sight!

Your gift today will support these Bible distribution and engagement programs. Here’s what your gift can do:

• $50 will provide 5 elderly people with a large-print Bible so they can be comforted by its message.

• $100 will provide 2 audio Bibles called Proclaimers to those who can’t read but longing to hear God’s Word.

• $200 will offer life-changing literacy skills to 10 women through Bible-based programs.

Please help us reach the illiterate, elderly and poor throughout the world by making the Bible available in special formats today.
