Two well-known organizations have partnered to further the goal of reaching the unreached worldwide.
Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF) has joined forces with Faith Comes by Hearing, an organization known for providing audio devices of the Bible.
"CEF comes into the picture because we have hundreds of thousands of international workers who can act as distributors getting this app or device to people all over the world," says CEF's communications chief, Lydia Kaiser. She calls the team-up a perfect fit.
Her international organization understands that many people, even including the impoverished, have cell phones and can easily connect with apps.
"We have been evangelizing children for 82 years. We have a trifold purpose: First of all, to evangelize children with the gospel. Secondly, disciple them with the Word of God, and thirdly, establish them at a local church for Christian living," Kaiser tells of CEF.
Barna research shows that most people who accept Christ do so between the ages of 7 and 14, but that is difficult in many parts of the world because of illiteracy.
"That's kind of difficult when over 70 percent of the world's population are either oral cultures or they can't read well enough to understand the Bible," says Kaiser.
So having an audio source will be a boon to spread the gospel, and Faith by Hearing has a goal of recording the Bible in every language group that needs it by 2033.
