young man with BibleOrganizations that help get God's Word to people all over the world are publicly celebrating the Bible today.

Faith Comes By Hearing spokesman Bill Lohr tells OneNewsNow his ministry is one of many that will commemorate the International Day of the Bible.

"We're encouraging, along with all the other partners and participants around the globe, to gather together, read, listen, and even sing Scripture," he says. "[We] just want to get people into the Bible and have them be able to interact with God's Word in their own language."

And Lohr notes that November 23's public celebration of the Bible is a wonderful time to highlight the work of Faith Comes By Hearing.

"We have 921 languages that are currently recorded. That represents about 85 percent of the world's population," he explains.

And the work, he asserts, will continue "until basically everybody on the planet has the opportunity to have God's Word in their own language and in a format they can use."

"Keep in mind," Lohr adds, that "half of the world's population are illiterate. They can't use a print Bible, so getting them something in text is really not something that they're going to interact with. So we continue to get that into audio format, and then for the deaf even sign language [and] video … so really getting it to a format that everybody can use."

Lohr concludes that for his ministry, which touts having reached more than 344 million people in virtually every country, International Day of the Bible is every day.
