Ministry Ships Solar-Powered Audio Bibles to Haiti

A non-profit Bible ministry called Faith Comes by Hearing has shipped 600 audio Bibles to the earthquake zone in Haiti.

The solar-powered digital audio players will be given to ministries that are already serving the physical needs of earthquake survivors.

"It's hard to imagine losing everything-your home, your family and neighbors," charity spokesman Jon Wilke said.

"Now, imagine hearing Jesus say 'Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.' Imagine hearing about how Jesus had no place to lay his head," he said. "These verses in God's Word can demonstrate that God understands their situation and has not forgotten them."

The digital audio players, called Haitian Creole Proclaimers, are especially useful for disaster outreach because they don't need any external power source. Haitians will hear the Scriptures in their native Haitian Creole language.

The ministry's goal is to get the players in the hands of Haitian pastors, medical teams and into refugee camps where people can gather together and listen.

"People are taking refuge in the churches that are still standing, seeking comfort," said one Haitian ministry leader. "People are suffering and asking for God's help. The need for the Bible is more urgent than we imagined."
