Excellent way of preaching the gospel around the world, need now more than ever !
Our two local leadership teams for the Pokomo and Waata tribes in Tana River county today met with Bramuel Musya of our CAP Team to review their Bible stories and pray together before a recording session for their cycle 1 process. Thank you for your support to Spoken Worldwide; God's Stories are going where written words can't go!

Spoken Worldwide
Deliver Truth...Where Written Words Can't Go
www.spoken.org Over 4 Billion people in the world do not read as their primary method of learning.

These people represent oral cultures or oral preference cultures and they consume information via stories, songs, proverbs and poetry. They do not read books, newspapers or magazines. Spoken communicates Truth to these oral cultures among the poorest of the poor around the world with communication strategies that fit the style they are accustomed to using. These stores, songs and dramas are created and recorded in the local communities and shared via digital audio devices in small listening groups for interactive discussion. Lives are changed forever in these small group discussions, and therefore this work, this calling is burned on our hearts. These people have been overlooked for so long - please join with us in reaching out a hand to help them grow.

Spoken Worldwide is 100% focused on crafting Christ-centered communications strategies for oral cultures. We partner with domestic and international churches and ministries to develop and distribute holistic audio content to accomplish Transformation that conveys Truth, offers context-sensitive Translation (not just linguistic), recognizes Trust is core to communication and utilizes appropriate Technology.

A lot of missionary work is designed for literate audiences, which sadly, prevents the gospel from reaching oral learners. At Spoken, we take an Orality approach to sharing the gospel, which involves translating scriptural lessons into stories, songs, drama, and poetry - the formats used by oral learners to learn and communicate. Creating Biblical content in story form and training local indigenous leaders in Orality effectively ensures the gospel reaches oral communities in a culturally relevant manner they understand.

For oral learners like Fatima, accessibility to the gospel is difficult. Even when there is access to the gospel, it's often not in their preferred learning style, or in their heart language, which creates a barrier to understanding and engaging with the Word of God. Providing accessibility through oral methods such as stories, songs, dramas, and proverbs is key to sharing scripture with oral learners. “Now I don’t need anyone to explain the Bible to me! As I can listen to and understand it fully.”

Our God is faithful and provides! Pastor Gimba, a Spoken leader in Nigeria, shares his testimony of provision.

"After our usual meeting with the Indigenous Leadership Team (ILT), I boarded a bus to Bukuru village around 5:00 PM. As I walked toward a motor park, a man suddenly calls out to me. At first, I ignored him. He called out to me a second time and I began cautiously walking toward him. As I got closer I realized he was repairing a bicycle. He said to me, 'I have watched you laboring in God’s vineyard over time.' I smiled and shook his hand, becoming at ease with him. The man said, 'You are a believer and I want to give you this bicycle to help you in your evangelism and discipleship work. And I hope this bicycle will also help transport you to your farm and carry produce.' I was filled with surprise and joy as he said this, and I took his message as God's instruction for me. I thank and praise God for His goodness in my life." - Pastor Gimba

For Spoken local leaders, their travel to disciple oral learners in surrounding communities can be long and hard due to the lack of paved roads - and most do not have cars. Having other means of transportation, such as a bicycle, is a huge blessing. We praise God for His love and care.

Indigenous leaders that are known and trusted by the men and women of their communities are the most effective way to reach oral learners. Spoken plays a large role in training and empowering these local leaders so that they can lead the charge in developing Bible content in oral form and delivering the gospel to their communities.

When oral learners hear the gospel in their heart language, the impact is great as they begin to truly understand God's message. Sharing Truth in a format that is understood best by the listener touches hearts, brings joy, and transforms lives!

Praise to God from India! “Despite the constant pressure of radical Hindus shutting down almost every church in our community, our team has coordinated ‘Christian Community Centers’ to be places of worship for believers. Additionally, a generous brother in Christ was willing to donate land and help secure permits so that construction of a new, small church building may begin. We praise God for our network of pastors for all their efforts in keeping our church community together!" - Naveen, Spoken Leader

Some of the participants said the orality training fits their style of learning and taught them how to adapt it to their environment in a simple way.

General information

The Need Most missiologists agree that 60-70 percent of the world does not read: - They either cannot (illiterate), do not (semi-literate) or will not (oral preference) - Removing populations from North America and Western Europe 80 percent of the missions focus is in this category of “oral learner”. - Oral learners consume information via stories, songs, dramas, village proverbs, and poetry, rather than through reading. The Solution - Spoken is one of a handful of ministries that exclusively focus on this audience. - We partner with indigenous leaders to design and record appropriate communication strategies for evangelism, discipleship or pastor training and include community development content to meet the needs of the whole person. - All audio recordings are placed on digital audio devices with external speakers to enable small listening groups to gather and discuss life-changing information. - We believe that third party evaluation is critical to unbiased analysis of how we performed as ministry, but more importantly how God has moved through the programs He has enabled.
