A NOTE FROM THE CEO
Do not work for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to eternal life… John 6:27
God’s Word is nourishment for our bodies and comfort for our souls. It feeds our daily thoughts, words and actions. In it, I am reminded what a blessing it is that we get to share His Word with so many around the world through audio bibles. We pray you are blessed for your continued support, and you find spiritual nourishment in His Word.
We are grateful to be able to share how some of our ministry partners are using Davar audio Bible recordings to reach many throughout Africa with God’s Word. Please take a few minutes to read the impact below.
More great news includes the completion of our first audio recording for Burkina Faso and the completion of 12 more recordings.
We look forward to sharing our 2021 Annual Report with you in the coming weeks. It is filled with new regional updates, impact stories and a few new videos from our time in Uganda. Please take the time to review the report and know that your support helped make it all possible.
Thank you for staying the course with us — for giving and praying and spreading the news about Davar‘s ministry.
Thank you for your faithful prayers and financial support of Davar.
For God’s glory!
W. Mark Perkins, CEO

LISTEN TO GENESIS 1:1
Matthew 19:14 says, “Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Our partners at Talking Bibles shared about the story of a man who has a porridge ministry to feed children in his Kenyan community and plays the Davar audio Bible so they can hear their Father while they eat.
Radio Umucyo is broadcasting Genesis in the Kinyarwandan language in Rwanda. One listener recently said, “Umucyo Radio FM is a blessing to me, since I am born again; I also know that this is a station that uplifts our hearts.” Agnes, age 22, listened to the radio broadcast and won her own audio Bible to continue to hear the Word of God at home.

Peter lives in Mgeno City on the Kenyan / Tanzania border. He is active in his local church and uses the Taita audio Bible he won on the TWR broadcast to lead the youth in his church.
