November 2020 Davar Monthly Update
A Note from the CEO
Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise! Psalm 95:2
Our hearts are overflowing this season with an expression of gratitude to our God. The Thanksgiving holiday is a cherished time to reflect upon God’s goodness and to thank him for the many ways he provides. This year, we at Davar are very thankful for many things, including the ways our Lord continues to provide faithful partnerships and generous resource as we accelerate Bible recording for the oral peoples of the world.
We are also very thankful for you and your support. As we approach the end of the year, we humbly ask for your continued support by considering these two giving opportunities:
- Matching opportunity: a new year-end gift received by December 31st will be doubled and applied to our “100 Bibles by 2022” goal (up to $200k total)
- Giving Tuesday: please consider Davar if you plan to give on Giving Tuesday, December 1st
As our country continues to battle COVID, we especially wish for you a blessed Thanksgiving surrounded by your family and friends.
We give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever.

Of the nearly 85 million people living in the DRC, 22.09% are illiterate — some 19 million people. This means that without an audio Bible many will never fully understand the word of God in their home language.
