MONTHLY UPDATE | FEBRUARY 2023
Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world.Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness but will have the light of life.” John 8:12. “I have come into the world as light, so that whoever believes in me may not remain in darkness.” John 12:46
Jesus is the light of the world, and his light displaces darkness. May we remember that millions of oral learners still live in darkness and need to hear the gospel message and the truths contained in God’s Word.
We are looking forward to all that our Lord has in-store for us in 2023! After much planning and prayer, we have set ambitious goals again this year. We’ll be working towards 91 new recordings, including eight new countries, and a $3 million fundraising goal. Please join us in accomplishing all that God has planned.
It is always encouraging to hear stories of impact. This month we want to introduce you to Mr. Robert. He is a visually impaired man we met in Uganda who shares how the audio Bible has impacted his life and his gratefulness for those who helped make it possible. Please take a few minutes to watch the short video.
Thank you for your continued prayers and support of Davar Audio Bibles.
For God’s glory!
W. Mark Perkins, CEO
IMPACTING THE VISUALLY IMPAIRED
Mr. Robert G., of the Ankole district of Western Uganda, went blind at the age of five. At that time his parents did not take him to school or for treatment. As a result, he felt rejected and lost hope in his future.
As an adult Mr. Robert began going to church where he heard the Gospel and was saved. God’s love gave him a sense of self-worth and hope for his future. He desired to learn more about God but he was dependent on others to read the Bible to him. He now has an audio Bible in his home language of Chiga and is memorizing scripture and sharing the Good News with others in his community. He shares that the audio Bible “gives me a lot of joy that I had never experienced before. Now, when I want to listen to the Bible, I just switch it on. I pray God shall bless those people abundantly for thinking of those of us who cannot see.”
