Hearing the Word of God is essential to fully understanding the gospel. As our churches are rapidly growing across countries like Benin, Togo, Cote d'Ivoire and Burkina Faso, we know that discipleship and follow up Bible studies are key to sustaining the growth of the church. Our desire is to bring the Word of God in a form that people can understand and helps them learn scripture by heart. Since most of the cultures in this area are predominantly oral learners, we believe that audio Bibles will help reach more people and they will more easily come to understand the truths of scripture.
The Torch Audio Bible is also a radio and a light, so in these remote areas where there is limited communication and sometimes no electricity, the torch is not only a great audio Bible, but also an essential tool for life's needs. The torch is rechargeable by the sun, and it offers recordings of teachings and Bible stories along with the audio Bible. We pray that this new tool will highly impact the growth and maturity of the church. A single unit costs only $75 USD each and can be easily transported to different countries through the help of Work and Witness teams. Our goal is to distribute 2,000 Torch Audio Bibles over the next 2 years of development in West Africa.
