Listening Opens the Door to God's Word
Sitting on a mat in the shade, Laura Alberto Massingi speaks softly of the things of God with the women gathered around her. Questions are asked and gentle answers are given.
With illiteracy levels running high in rural villages like Pembra, Mozambique, Laura says the audio Scriptures are vital to sharing the Word of God. "The talking Bible is the only way that people in Pembra can have access to God's Word. People will sit together to listen but most will never be able to read the Bible."
Pastor Samento's story is powerful. He lost his legs in a mining accident in 1998 and he says that through the audio Scriptures, God has transformed his life and the life of his church. "People love hearing God's Word. As soon as the talking Bible starts to play people begin to gather around."
Using his strong upper body to propel himself along the sandy path from his home to church, pastor Samento carries his talking Bible in his pocket. "I can now thank God for the loss of my legs because people are listening to the message that I bring."
Real stories like these are what motivate CBS staff to work diligently for the Bible cause. It is a privilege to work alongside our Bible-a-Month supporters to share The Word. For Life. You are making a way for the lost to be found and we thank you for your continued support!
