EARS to HEAR: Sub-Saharan Africa

"I have hidden your Word in my heart, that I might not sin against you." -Psalm 119:111

The African continent remains at the forefront of Bible poverty. Millions of people are waiting and longing to hear the precious Word of God, and some do not have access to even one verse of Scripture in their languages. Translation agencies are adopting new methods and technologies to accelerate the translation process, and Davar is partnering with these renowned agencies to bring audio Bibles to the men, women, and children who do not read or prefer to listen. Collaborating with Pioneer Bible Translators, The Word for the World, and many others, Davar is working diligently on 13 African language productions between now and early 2018. 

Will you join us in this sacred effort to make the Word of God available? Will you invest monthly to make 13 new audio Bibles available in this region? Together we can eliminate Bible poverty!
