The Word of God for the People of Peru

There are 12 million Quechua people who speak 46 different languages living in villages throughout Peru. Some maintain their traditional way of life as farmers or shepherds, while others have adapted to mainstream society. Very few of the people can read and write in Quechua.

In their culture, traditions and belief systems are rarely written down but instead are passed down orally, making the need for an audio Bible all the more important. A true understanding of the gospel is unknown. While Catholicism is prevalent it has become intermingled with their traditional animistic beliefs. They have limited, if any, concept of Jesus as the Son of God or the Savior.
