May God do great wonders that will beat human imagination the power of his resurrection will be made real in Jesus name Amen
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.

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

“In God I trust and am not afraid.”- Psalm 56:11

A group being trained to work with oral cultures in Mozambique comes forward to pray immediately after hearing the word of God!

*Spoken leaders are adhering to the COVID-19 recommended social distancing precautions, including limiting the group size to 10 persons. Photo shown was previously taken in February.

As many governments have halted public gatherings such as religious activities, leaders are continuing to find ways to share the Word of God. Last week, Dr. Ray Neu, Spoken’s Director of Orality Coaching, taught program leaders via phone how to learn and share biblical stories in an oral format. Pray for God's guidance and protection during this time so that we may continue to facilitate ministry in a safe and effective way.

“Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker; for he is our God and we are the people of his pasture, the flock under his care.”- Psalm 95:6-7

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

We praise God for the 17 Bible stories that were recorded in Liberia last weekend. The Coaching Program in Liberia now has more than 50 stories completed! Even through difficult times, FAITHFUL leaders are laboring for their communities in order to best reach oral learners through stories.

We have a God of Hope. When we are going through stressful and difficult times, He reminds us each day to find our peace and strength in Him.

"Today, the people of our Church had a fasting prayer, and all those who participated in it worshipped God, and when the time came to share the word of God, we shared a story of the Bible, instead of preaching. They continued to meditate for a long time on the Bible story. The main thing was that if it had been preaching, only one man would have spoken, and the other people would have only listened. But everyone got into the story, and every man discussed what they thought and took from the story, and to better know God's will. It was truly amazing." - Spoken Leader, India

The Lord will be a refuge for His people - Joel 3:16

Remember in the midst of all the chaos, God is in control. Let us put our eyes, trust and complete faith in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Be the light in the darkness so that others might see Christ in and through you!

Pictured here are a group of oral learners from Liberia with their new church group! This past month new churches have been planted in Libera and Côte D'Ivoire! 🙌

Pray for God to move in a mighty way, and that His Word will strengthen all who hear. Pray that every newly planted church will help make disciples in His name.

Praise God for the community leaders who carry out storytelling work as a way of sharing the Word of God to Oral Learners. We continue to pray for the Holy Spirit’s direction of their work and God’s Kingdom to expand. 🙏

🌍 Through our Pastor Development Program, the Indigenous Leadership Team (program leaders) are helping a community from Nigeria shape and lead the younger generation with Truth. Family members of the community are also using oral Bible stories for their daily devotion, equipping the younger generation for a long life relationship with Christ Jesus.

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

The new OBT team in the MENA region have already completed translating six passages from the book of Luke and have tested in community settings!

🙏 Join us in prayer for this new team, for the Holy Spirit’s direction of their work, and God’s Kingdom to expand as a result.

People groups in South Asia are among of the most unreached people groups in the world. Pray for the people who still remain unreached.

The Lord continues to show His faithfulness and love through the most difficult and painful days. A new brother in Christ from India shares his testimony:

“I am suffering from cancer right now but with the stories of the Bible, I am getting the strength to live. I am getting stronger and stronger learning and discussing the stories of Jesus. If I had not worked with the staff of Spoken Worldwide, then maybe there would be no hope for living with this horrible disease. Jesus is giving me strength and more strength, and I am also able to lead discussions with these stories.”

Let us come together in gladness and praise His name! 🙌

Tshuba, an oral learner who has been working with the OBT team in Botswana shared how excited she is to have memorized Bible passages in her own language, and that she would even sing them walking down the road. She mentions, “It makes me feel free to use my own language. I want all of my people to hear the stories!”

Praise the Lord for the dedicated leaders who are working hard to memorize and share His Word with others! 🙌

Praise the Lord because 220 oral learners from a small village named Manxotae in Botswana have gathered together to hear the Word of God! 🙌

They were happily listening and engaging attentively with the passages of Daniel 5:31 to 6:38 - translated first in Tsoa and then in Shua (their heart languages). "We want the whole Bible in our language!” one woman exclaimed.

Currently, the Shua and Tsoa translation teams are working hard with the OBT coordinator to enable more oral learners to hear and know the Word of God.

STORYTIME: The Bronze Snake story from Numbers 21:4-9, a story where God teaches His people about faith. 👉 To listen to The Bronze Snake passage, click here - http://spoken.org/the-bronze-snake/ In the recording, you will hear how local leaders share Bible stories like this one in the mission field.

Speak to one another with the words of psalms, hymns, and sacred songs; sing hymns and psalms to the Lord with praise in your hearts. In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, always give thanks for everything to God the Father. - Ephesians 5:19-20

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

One woman shared how delighted she was to know the stories, and how pleased she is that she can now narrate from Genesis 1-4. Her pastor was amazed by how fast she was able to memorize what she had heard and felt the stories could be used as a bible study, for others to listen and have discussions. The pastor loves that he can now ask members of his church, “Can you narrate what you’ve heard?” and they can do so with confidence.

Praise the Lord, for we have the privilege to proclaim his glorious name! May it always be exalted now and forever!

“My team members have helped me to start a new life. As I was translating stories into my heart language, God was speaking to me, especially in the story of Jesus and the Samaritan woman. Jesus helped that woman to understand the meaning of life, and in the same way, my Lord Jesus helped me to start a new life with my two daughters and with my in-laws. Now I am happy and share stories in my groups. Thank God.”

Truth restores and we praise Him for this!

There is no place too remote that the Lord can’t reach. More unreached oral learners received the Truth last year in 2019!🙌

In 2019 with YOUR support and generosity, there were 20,750 disciple makers, 1,063 program leaders, and we worked with 154 different unique languages! Thank you for impacting unreached oral learners around the world!

The Coaching team is growing through US and International staff involvement, as well as volunteers. Coaches are working with churches and ministry partners to implement Spoken methodology around the world. We hope in 2020, our Coaching Program will continue to train more local leaders and spread the gospel to many MORE oral learners!

Edward, who is part of our Coaching program, has been working closely with local leaders in Northern Ghana for the past three years. He has shared with us that there is now a total of 29 local Christian leaders trained in equipping other leaders to share Spoken’s methodology of sharing the gospel through songs, stories, and poems to the oral learners in their communities.

We have received a testimony from our Indigenous Leader Training program (ILT) in India, and they have shared a story of how the discussion of biblical truth can transform and change lives.

“When a new team member from our ILT program first joined, she didn’t utter a single word in the first workshop. She didn’t have any idea what orality is all about. After going through an entire workshop cycle, she now has become one of the most active storytellers on the team. She actively shares stories and conducts group discussions of her own. She leads women’s groups and has led some women to Christ!”

We praise the Lord for what He has done for our ILT program in India and all the new believers sharing Truth!

“Our God is good! We are grateful for the stories on this device because everything that is taught teaches and touches. We are people who have not gone to school. We have now got a little of it from this device.” ✨ - Sara

“Tell me a fact and I'll learn. Tell me a truth and I'll believe. But tell me a story and it will live in my heart forever." – Indian Proverb

Our ultimate goal at Spoken is to reach the hearts of the 4 BILLION unreached people around the world and to relate to the different oral cultures with which we work. By presenting the Word of God through stories, songs and poems in their heart language they are able to connect and be more open to the message. We hope that by sharing Truth through stories it will plant a seed in people’s hearts and they can begin to share it with others.

Moha lives in a particular village where the population is predominantly Muslim and Traditionalist, with few Christians. He has been part of one of our listening groups over time.

One day he listened to the story on Child Evangelism and asked the group leader, “What if I accept Jesus Christ into my life, would my life change?" The group leader said, "Yes, Indeed! Your life will change, and you will understand God's plans for your life fully".

Dr. Ray Neu, our Director of Orality Coaching helped train these local leaders, who are now on their way to train others in Oral Storytelling in Liberia! They are physically struggling to reach those in need, but not letting that stop them from sharing Truth. Our goal and prayer is for these local leaders to continue sharing what they have learned with others! 🙌

One MegaVoice device is capable of reaching over 300 oral leaners with more than 100 stories! Local leaders are able to share the Truth in their local communities in a safe and effective manner, especially in places where it is dangerous to have a Bible.

Women from Sierra Leone were given Story Scarves this year. These scarves are provided so that they can go to market and share Bible stories with those who are eager to learn. The pictures help them recall the different stories they’ve learned from the Bible! ✨

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.
