Audio Bibles to Accompany Disaster Relief Teams

Posted on

“It’s hard for us to imagine losing everything—your home, your family and neighbors. But that’s what has happened to so many there. Now, imagine standing in a line waiting for aid and hearing Jesus say (in the Beatitudes) ‘Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.’ Imagine hearing about how Jesus had no place to lay His head. These verses in God’s Word can demonstrate that God understands their situation and has not forgotten them.”

(Albuquerque, NM)—Before the recent devastating earthquake, Haiti was one of the poorest nations in the world. About 70 percent of Haitians live on less than $2 a day, and now they have lost everything.

Audio Bibles for HaitiFaith Comes By Hearing (FCBH), an international Audio Bible group, is working with Convoy of Hope, a disaster relief organization, to provide spiritual relief in Haiti.

According to a news release from FCBH, Convoy of Hope feeds the hungry and provides pure drinking water to people in need across the United States and around the world. To date, the organization has provided help to 28 million people in 112 countries and 45 states.

Convoy of Hope mobilizes thousands of volunteers each year to deliver food and supplies, and to offer hope to people who are poor and suffering. It has people on the ground ready to receive containers of food, clothing and supplies being sent to Haiti. The organization is working with local Haitian churches that are ministering to those left in this deadly earthquake.

Faith Comes By Hearing said the organization is coming alongside Convoy of Hope’s disaster relief services to provide solar-powered Audio Bibles that will minister emotional and spiritual healing to this impoverished nation.

FCBH said a missionary in Haiti wrote on Twitter, “Some of the worst effects are emotional…no smiles on the street and sense of despair.”

According to FCBH, another ministry partner there sent in a report stating, “Many are thirsty for words of comfort and ask us for the Bible. Throughout town, the streets are packed and many are praying.”

While relief efforts help provide for the physical needs, Faith Comes By Hearing Spokesperson Jon Wilke said Audio Bibles will help bring the promises of God in the heart language of a people so desperate for hope.

Wilke said, “It’s hard for us to imagine losing everything—your home, your family and neighbors. But that’s what has happened to so many there. Now, imagine standing in a line waiting for aid and hearing Jesus say (in the Beatitudes) ‘Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.’ Imagine hearing about how Jesus had no place to lay His head. These verses in God’s Word can demonstrate that God understands their situation and has not forgotten them.”

Faith Comes By Hearing is also making these Audio Bibles available for other relief groups, churches and ministries.
