With the release of its 11 newest language recordings, audio Bible ministry Faith Comes By Hearing now has New Testament recordings in 601 languages, ASSIST News Service reports. Combined, the 601 languages are spoken by more than 5 billion people in more than 185 countries around the world, and the newest language releases represent dialects from Bangladesh, India, Mexico, Central African Republic, Ethiopia, Peru, Cameroon and Indonesia. The audio Bibles are available free through streaming, podcasts, apps and solar-powered recordings for areas without the Internet or mobile devices. Just less than a year ago, the ministry announced the release of its 500th language recording. "This sort of amazing progress is only possible through great partners working together for the Kingdom," said international director Morgan Jackson. As Faith Comes By Hearing gets ready to celebrate its 40th anniversary next year, it continues to focus on its mission to record and provide audio New Testaments in every translated language.
