Duncan Funsani has a beautiful wife whom he has never seen. He’s built churches that he’s never seen. He has prayed with many believers and has heard them speak in tongues as they are gloriously filled with the Holy Spirit. But he has only heard that evidence; he has never seen it with his own eyes.
Duncan is totally blind. He worked very hard to graduate from one of our Assemblies of God Bible schools and succeeded with the help of a very large, multivolume braille Bible. After he graduated, that expensive resource had to stay in the school library. Duncan left school with only the scripture he had memorized.
He represents one group of Africans who, due to blindness, need the Africa’s Hope AudioDisciple. This solar-powered audio player can be loaded with the entire Bible and the Living the Truth discipleship curriculum in a choice of African languages.
Other Africans need the AudioDisciple because they have poor reading skills or are completely illiterate. Many of them speak two or even three languages, but they have difficulty understanding what they read. However, when they hear the gospel in any language they speak, they can understand it and respond. Those people are called oral learners.
Africa’s Hope has an opportunity to help bring the gospel message to the ears of thousands of Africans.
For just $50 you can help Africa’s Hope provide an AudioDisciple
loaded with the entire Bible, discipleship training and short gospel messages in the language of its recipients. We will deliver the AudioDisciples to pastors in rural areas where illiteracy is widespread. Because of your gift, many people will hear the gospel, believe and be discipled!
Illiteracy has always been a big problem in many parts of Africa. I’ve seen it personally. Some dialects do not have a printed alphabet. The only way an African pastor or evangelist can give the Word of God to those people groups is through an audio device.
Duncan succeeded in building several churches in Malawi, and now he is one of the respected leaders of the Malawi Assemblies of God. Being blind—or having limited reading ability—does not necessarily limit what the Holy Spirit can do with a dedicated person who is given the resources they need to overcome their limitations.
I urge you to please help Africa’s Hope provide AudioDisciples for distribution to people like Duncan in Africa. We want to send 250 AudioDisciples to several national churches in Africa as special Christmas gifts. These tools will help provide evangelism and discipleship on the ground in several key locations.
Your gift of $50 this Christmas will help Africa’s Hope provide an AudioDisciple audio player for a pastor or evangelist to minister to blind and illiterate people groups in Africa. I hope you can help provide 5, 10, 20, 50 or more AudioDisciples.
What an awesome gift: the opportunity for an African to hear the gospel in his or her language. This is a project we are excited about. I thank you for what you will do to help Africa’s Hope this month. We love and appreciate you!
Yours for an increasingly redeemed Africa,
