Audio Bibles for South Sudan

A man named Hani Boulos has been partnering with Galcom International for a few years.  Hani lives in Canada but travels to South Sudan and takes along a small order of Galcom audio Bibles each time.

Hani recently sent us a note:

“A project started in 2011 to distribute audio bibles to assemblies and preaching points in the Nuba mountain area where they do not have many visitors. This small device works with solar power, and a loud speaker that allows 15-20 people to listen to it at the same time. A couple of months after we started recording some simple gospel messages and sound doctrine, the civil war started again in the Nuba Mountain area, and we were not able to deliver audio bibles. In May 2015, the Lord opened the door again through brother Butrus from South Sudan, who was able to go into this area. Over the last year, we were able to distribute over 500 audio bibles targeting the disabled, blind, illiterate, young people, and preaching points. Please pray for another shipment that will be sent this week.picture13

South Sudan is a multilingual country with about 64 tribes and languages. For now we send audio in two languages; Dinka and Nuer, the largest tribes. We are targeting three main languages (Dinka, Nuer, and Nuba Moro) plus English and Arabic (both Sudanese Arabic and Arabi Juba) since the device is capable of carrying two more languages.

I was also able to record some gospel messages in simple Sudanese Arabic as it is understood in these areas, and uploaded some Sudanese songs too.

Thank the Lord who burdened many hearts to support this work financially, also for Galcom international, and others who produce those devices.

Please pray that the Lord may use His Word, and for many to listen to the Word, and to know the Savior.”
