MICRO SD CARD
Micro SD cards are small memory devices that are loaded with the Word of God translated into the needed language, and provided to a pastor or a Christian worker overseas. When these micro SD cards are inserted into mobile phones, people can hear the Word of God in their own language. Because of their size, it is easy for micro SD cards to be passed from person to person. Several people are often impacted by hearing the audio Bible that was loaded onto just one micro SD card. Many people are hearing the Bible in their heart language for the very first time.
BibleSticks are personal digital players that are battery-powered and come loaded with an audio Bible. BibleSticks are approved for military use, distributed by US military chaplains, and are provided for the men and women in our armed forces in English and Spanish. Other Bible Sticks are sent to refugee camps to be given to people that are desolate, hurting, and in need of the truth of God’s Word in their language. Whether these BibleSticks are being used on the front lines of battle or in the midst of a crowded refugee camp, they offer hope and light in a place that would otherwise be dark, through the power of God’s Word.
The Proclaimer is a solar-powered digital player, preloaded with an audio Bible in the local heart language, and is designed for the sole purpose of proclaiming the Good News of Jesus Christ to the nations. Used in church services, villages, and listening groups around the world, the Proclaimer provides thousands of hours of Bible listening, discussion, and discipleship, allowing people to become saturated with God’s Word and learn what it is to follow Jesus with the Holy Spirit’s guidance.
With more than seven billion people speaking approximately 7,000 languages around the world, nearly 1,600 languages still need a Bible translation to begin. To record a new language, workers must set up a recording station in or near the village, find and hire local language speakers, record an audio recording of the translated Bible, and do the post-processing work to finish it. When you fund a chapter of the New Testament, you are giving a people group the opportunity to hear a portion of the Bible in their language that they have never heard before. Although the recording process is long and tedious, it is worth the effort because of the results! Once an audio Bible is recorded in a new language, that recording can then be programed onto micro SD cards, BibleSticks, and Proclaimers to reach even more people with the Word of God.
