MONTHLY UPDATE | MARCH 2022
A NOTE FROM THE CEO
And by your blood you ransomed people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation… Revelation 5:9b
I am writing this message from Kampala, Uganda where we have been visiting with the Bible Society of Uganda to distribute audio bibles in multiple Ugandan languages, to learn how the audio is being used and to build on our partnership. We also visited our partner studios to witness the recording of three of our Africa recording projects, where we met narrators from South Sudan and Tanzania. We have seen firsthand that God’s Word is alive and transforming the lives of many in Uganda. Below you’ll find some highlights of the trip with more to follow soon.
To support our growing work in South Asia, we are pleased to welcome Shojo John, who has joined Davar as our Productions Manager for this region. He is a great addition to the team and will be instrumental in our plans to continue to accelerate recording projects in this region.
We look forward to sharing our Annual Report with you where you will see how God is using Davar and your partnership to reach many with His Word.
Thank you for your continued prayers and support.
For God’s glory!
W. Mark Perkins, CEO
