WYCLIFFE FIELD PROJECTS
Audio Bibles are handheld devices that have had the Bible recorded onto them in audio format. That is, someone is recorded reading the Bible in the targeted language and this can then be played back by the listener/s over and over. Audio Bibles (or Megavoice units) are a relatively cheap and very effective means of making the Bible available to people, particularly to those who cannot read or are vision impaired.
Wycliffe has helped to provide audio Bibles to a diverse range of language communities in places such as Mexico, Russia, PNG, Australia, and very recently Madagascar and Mozambique. Sometimes our own Wycliffe Australia personnel initiate efforts to make audio Bibles available for the languages they are working with, and sometimes we receive requests for assistance from other Christian organisations trying to provide audio Bibles to (often minority) language groups. Either way, we are keen to support these efforts as they can give marginalised people access to God’s Word. This project has been set up to raise funds to support audio Bible recording and distribution, wherever that need may be.
