Equipping Nomadic Tribesmen to be Good News Messengers!

Nov 13, 2015

Nomadic groups in a remote area of the Asia-Pacific Region do not have access to the Scripture in their own language. Many were never taught to read, so the distribution of printed Bibles will not meet the need. In answer to this need, we have introduced them to the Papyrus, a solar powered audio device that is preloaded with the New Testament in their local language. These units come with a speaker that can be heard by up to 200 people at once!Pappyrus Speaker side

We have the amazing opportunity to provide 100 of these units to key tribal leaders who will be trained in the Bible Storytelling method in this Creative Access Area. These tribesmen are oral learners so by providing them with the Papyrus, we are helping to introduce them to the life-transforming power of God’s Word.

You can help these nomadic tribesmen become passionate followers of Jesus, and messengers of reconciliation to their own people. To find out how your family or church can sponsor a Papyrus unit, click on the following link:
