Davar’s Turkana Audio Bible
Davar completed the Turkana audio Bible in 2018 to provide the opportunity for many to hear God’s Word, possibly for the first time, while also helping oral learners learn how to read. We are thrilled to share that the Turkana Radio program, Abibilia itorunit naredio or the Bible through Radio, has been broadcasting segments of the Turkana audio Bible for its listeners—starting with the Gospel of Matthew.
The radio station’s broadcast reaches approximately 500,000 people through its daily programming, many of whom are either semi-literate or illiterate. The Turkana region has an illiteracy rate of 82%. The radio program targets only Turkana speaking people with the aim of evangelizing them with the Bible message.
The Bible through Radio encourages weekly listener engagement by giving away a free Turkana audio Bible every week. After broadcasting a segment of the Turkana audio Bible, listeners are welcomed to call in live or send text messages to share testimonies on the impact of the Word of God. Approximately 100,000 people were reached in one month through this broadcast. This 30-minute, listener-driven program has given away four free audio Bibles within the first few weeks —one to a blind man in a remote region of Turkana County.
It is our prayer that this particular program will reach 200,000+ people every month. Please pray with us that God will use the Turkana audio Bible to continue to bring transformation to all those who hear it.
