WCOI in partnership with TWR India and the Tripura Baptist Christian Union recorded and released the New Testament in the Kokborok language.
Thirty Seven years have passed and when we look back we can only thank God for enabling and rewarding Mr. Sundara Rajan for his faith and perseverance. Thousands of Audio Bibles have been shipped out of our offices and WCOI has recorded the Bible in Audio in over 90 Indian Languages. WCOI has evolved with every passing year adapting itself to newer technology for recording and distributing the Bible.
Many pastors in India who work in rural areas are mostly self trained. The Messenger players that were given to us by Dr. Charles Stanley's InTouch ministries contains sermons by Dr.Charles Stanley that has been translated and recorded in all major languages.
Watch a short clip about how this Pastor found it very difficult to read after he lost his eyesight in an accident. He suddenly had to depend on some one to read the Bible out for him. The Audio Bible is now helping him in his ministry. He is now able to hear God's word in Audio any time anywhere. This was an answer to his prayers. Many like this pastor still wait to hear God's word in Audio.
While visiting the Pastor's home over lunch we casually asked him as to how long does it take for electricity to come back after a power cut. He told us that it had been more than 3 months since they have had electricity in their village. He went on to tell us how much these solar powered audio Bibles would help people especially when it is dark. As we walked back to our vehicle from the distribution, we literally heard the audio bible being played in every small house with the family sitting around. It was such a beautiful sight.
