People living in remote areas of the world are being transformed by hearing the Bible read in their mother tongue. This outreach is accomplished through the partnership of hundreds of organizations.

Faith Comes By Hearing, the international audio Bible recording ministry, works with some 400 partner organizations around the world. Audio Bibles are translated, recorded and distributed. Lori Koch, recording operations manager for Faith Comes By Hearing, tells OneNewsNow that hearing God's Word audibly makes an eternal difference for many people.

"When they hear Jesus speak their language for the first time, as they hear it in the audio, it's at that moment that they realize, Oh, I have not been forgotten by God. God speaks my language. He's from among us,” Koch explains.

The ministry spokeswoman describes the process used in the translation process. “We get a native speaker to speak the lines of Jesus, to speak the lines of Peter, and to speak the lines of Paul," she cites as examples. "So all of a sudden, [the listener feels that] Jesus is no longer [just] the God of the white missionaries."

Koch says people then begin to understand that they can pray to God and have a personal relationship with him. She also says that transformational power motivates translators to keep the ministry moving forward to reach more people for Christ.
