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.

Mission: Distributing life-changing information in culturally appropriate forms through local partnerships

Operating as usual

Our Coaching Program has partnered with one of our Ministry Partners, Church of Nazarene, to record new Bible stories and complete a new oral curriculum for local leaders all across Africa. Good reports have come in and recordings are now being completed. Pray for the ongoing work, for the translators, and for the audio recordings that will be shared with unreached people groups!

We praise our Spoken Indigenous Leaders Training (ILT) group in Nigeria for continuing to share Truth and making disciples for generations to come!

“Even though I don’t have the formal education, now I can share the stories of the Bible with such boldness.”- Spoken Leader, Kenya

Matthew, and indigenous local leader for Spoken, knows in his heart his calling is to tell others about Jesus and disciple them - so that they may go and disciple others. Matthew also looks forward to reaching out to younger generations in his community with the Gospel, in the hope they will come to know and have a deep relationship with God.

“These translated passages are very unique. They are clear and easy to understand. I think everyone will understand these passages, and it could be greatly used in Bible study meetings and small group discussions inside and outside the church. May God bless your efforts!” – Small discussion group attendee, India

“I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.” – Luke 15:7

Praise from the Democratic Republic of Congo! Baptisms were held and we thank the Lord and celebrate those who have decided to take the next step in their faith!

Your prayers help support our Spoken Programs. Please pray with us for our Coaching Program and for the massive orality project set to develop 52 oral-based trainings in 10 different languages in the next coming months.

The Polchi Oral Bible Translation team in Nigeria continues to do amazing work and is translating scripture verses into their heart language! We praise the Lord for their passion, commitment, and dedication for God's word to be known to their whole community!

“I am so glad you have come. This training is really helpful. We have been looking for a way to reach our community with the gospel, and this is just what we need. We are so excited to know how to find the right Bible story with the problems we see in the community.” - Orality Training Attendee, India

During a storytelling session in the DRC, the discussion members' hearts were moved by the story's message of Zelophehad's daughters in Numbers 27. A beautiful story of justice and God's righteousness and fairness. After hearing the story, one of the attendees said, "I understand that we must not violate, but instead respect the right of girls and women!" This testimony is significant because, in the Tembo culture, women are often marginalized regarding the right of inheritance. We praise God that His word keeps touching and transforming lives!

“Praise God for good reports coming from the field. God is working through His people and His Word! It is so encouraging to hear the reports of what God is doing through those who are storytelling and being faithful despite various challenges and situations going on.” - Director of Orality and Coaching, Dr. Ray Neu

“Pray for the Bible stories that have been developed for our upcoming orality training in Sierra Leon. Pray the stories will touch the hearts and lives of many who hear.” - Simon, Spoken Leader

We invite you to be a part of God's work at Spoken by praying with us today.

Praise from Nigeria as they continue to record stories! “We look forward to recording our phase three 30 Bible stories this week and pray that God will continue to oversee our work!” - Spoken Leader, Nigeria

Our ministry partner, GGFAN, was able to provide a COVID-19 relief effort in Kenya. This has enabled the local leaders to provide much needed food to vulnerable families across 10 regions that have been affected by locust, floods, and COVID-19. They distributed bags of maize, beans, rice, and cooking oil - enough to feed 3,597 people! We are thankful to the Lord for our partners that were able to reach out to these communities and be a blessing, showing the love of Jesus Christ.

Last month, Pastor Edward planted a new church in Northern Ghana using Spoken's orality methods. Pastor Edward asks for prayers for the Lord to sustain the new church and for the church's needs to be met. They currently need additional chairs for the new church members. Let us pray that the Lord blesses this new church and provides for all of their physical needs!

“Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the holy Spirit.” - Matthew 28:19

In September, the Polchi Oral Bible Translation team in Nigeria has been working hard to translate various scriptures from the book of Matthew and John. People who have never heard the gospel in their heart language have said it touched their hearts, and they want to hear more! One man from the community said he wanted to be saved after listening to Matthew 2:1-12 and 3:23. Pray for the amazing work that is being done, and that people’s hearts will be receptive to the gospel.

Be Safi, who is HIV+, was dying two years ago, but after listening to the word of God and accepting Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior, her life was transformed with the peace of the Lord. She is now sharing her testimony and helping other oral learners like her with life-changing Truth!

Praise from Nigeria! A group of teens is leading their own Bible discussion group! Reuben, who is part of our ILT team (Indigenous Leadership Training), is leading the group and discussing the Fall of Man in Genesis 3:1-8. He asks that we pray that the Lord will continue to guide their discussion group and that they will foster a deeper relationship with Christ.

We are amazed to see families coming together and conducting more in-depth biblical discussions and producing spiritual growth despite the global pandemic. We have seen significant activity among those creating audio recordings of Bible stories. Local leaders are also taking the initiative to connect with their Bible study groups via WhatsApp and Facebook messenger to ensure their ministry work moves forward! Praise the Lord for utilizing this time for HIS glory despite the difficulties we face!

Our local leaders have reported that no one in their groups, or in their families have been diagnosed with COVID. We praise God for His protection over our team and pray He continues to keep us safe.

In June and July, we prayed for a plentiful farming season and harvest. This week Spoken leaders from the field have shared how their rice fields are continuing to flourish! We praise God for this good news! Please continue to pray for the many people who are still facing food scarcity due to the pandemic.

A group of local leaders in Eastern Zambia have started orality training! This methodology will help local leaders share the Word in a way that is best understood by oral learners. We praise the Lord for this group and pray that their work will be fruitful, with more unreached people coming to know Christ!

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.
