With six billion plus people on planet earth, many who cannot read or write, how can they ever hear the plan of redemption and the story of Jesus creating the world, dying on the cross and coming again? One tremendous tool is the Mega Voice solar-powered handheld audio Bible.
For $30 per unit it is possible to mass produce a simple, hard-shelled unit, powered by solar power alone, that “speaks” the Bible in the language of various groups around the world. The North Pacific Union Conference is cooperating with serveral church organizations* to produce Mega Voice Bibles that include an outline of the Life of Jesus and the Story of Redepmtion, Steps to Jesus (a simplified version of Steps to Christ), a series of Bible study guides and the entire New Testament. A speaker can be attached so that the message can be played to a large group of people.
As groups take mission trips around the world, such as the Philippines for Christ 2008 trip next March, wouldn’t it be wonderful to leave behind a Mega Voice unit for each Bible worker and village where we have been? For more information on how to be involved see the “Solar Bibles” article in the September 2007 Gleaner.
