Faith Comes By Hearing is a ministry that produces audio recordings of the Bible in 371 languages and all are available for free download. Some countries are 80-90% illiterate, so getting the spoken Word to them is a powerful evangelistic tool. They have a product which is just really, really cool. “The Proclaimer is an audio player containing the New Testament on an embedded microchip. It has just one purpose: to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ to the nations! The Proclaimer is practically indestructible. It can play by solar panel . . .”
This is a great ministry to donate to as well as a terrific source of free audio Bibles for your MP3 player. Check out their web site and see what I mean.

But for them, a person’s ancestors have a big impact on their credibility. So when they realize who Jesus’ ancestors were they were prepared to take him more seriously.
