Of the 7,140 languages in the world, 2,500 have at least a New Testament that has been translated into their language, and another 1,000 have some portion of the Bible in their language. The rest have nothing. For some, the work of translation has not even begun. Join Dr. Ankerberg and Morgan Jackson from Faith Comes by Hearing over the next several weeks to learn how you can help give God's Word to the World.
The son of Faith Comes By Hearing founders, Morgan has been around oral peoples since boyhood. On Native American reservations, Morgan could be found eating the locals’ food, sleeping on the ground, and learning how language and culture are interconnected. As the Jackson family settled in Albuquerque and started the ministry, Morgan began working to equip churches with Audio Bibles. Early on, he formed key relationships that led to worldwide partnerships to record the Bible in every language. Morgan is a gifted communicator who weaves powerful real-life stories from the field into his talks, sharing the need for God’s Word in audio. His enthusiasm and passion come through as he presents the crucial and urgent need for all people to have the opportunity to hear God’s Word in their own language. His responsibilities include developing global partnerships with organizations, ministries, foundations, and supporters. He has traveled to more than 80 countries to share the vision of Faith Comes By Hearing with others. Morgan and his wife Mary, who often travels with him, have three grown children and six beautiful grandchildren.
Audio Bibles are essential in areas where many people are unable to read a printed Bible and in villages where oral communication is primary. This is why we have partnered with FCBH, a ministry seeking to reach those who have never heard about Jesus by providing audio Bibles in their heart language. And because of your generous response over the last few years, there are now almost 6 million people sitting in listening groups each week hearing the Bible for the very first time. It is estimated that half of them, about 3 million people, have become new believers.
