God's Word for America's gutsy warriors

Veterans Day ceremony vetsA spokesman for an audio Bible ministry believes there's no greater way to show gratitude on Veterans Day than to give God's Word to a veteran.

Bill Lohr is director of media and public relations for the New Mexico-based ministry Faith Comes By Hearing. He says Veteran's Day is a perfect time for Americans to show appreciation for how the troops have protected them by giving them the Military BibleStick, a digital audio player designed for the military that's about the size of a pack of gum.

"This is an extra, added opportunity that we see through the outreach that not only do we say thank you with our words, but we say thank you with God's Word," he offers. "And we make sure that they have that available through the BibleStick and they can listen and hear year-round."

Bible Stick (Faith Comes By Hearing)The device, first introduced by the ministry in 2008, comes preloaded with a dramatized recording of the New Testament and specifically selected Psalms.

Lohr tells OneNewsNow that over the last few years they have expanded their outreach to veterans through the VA services.

"It's really exciting for us to see the need not only from veterans since 9/11, but we're getting chaplains who are handing out BibleSticks to veterans from Vietnam, Korea, [and] World War II – and it's really exciting for us," he shares.

It costs about $25 to get a Military BibleStick into the hands of a veteran. The ministry reports that over a six-month deployment, it's not unusual for ten to fifteen soldiers to share a single BibleStick.
