TWR now produces content in over 275 languages, surpassing their previous total of around 230. These programs are available over radio broadcasts and digitally.
Grasping the Gospel
Lauren Libby believes there is an urgency to translate the Scripture and biblical programs into as many languages as possible.
“[With] the COVID-19 situation, people are beginning to evaluate their lives and look for meaning. When they can investigate Bible and also investigate biblical materials in their own language, it carries a double impact,” he explains.
“With half the world under some kind of lockdown order today, people in every culture need hope, they need assurance, and they need God more than ever. TWR is positioned with the media and languages to meet those needs.”
Libby explains that offering biblical teaching in native languages is crucial for connecting people with the Gospel.
“The heart language ministers to people,” he says. “I heard a listener one time say, ‘I haven’t heard the Bible explained to my native language until now.’ [Hearing it] in [their] own native language is an incredible thing for a lot of people.”
By offering programs like Thru the Bible recordings in many languages and organizing home groups for discussion, listeners are able to make enduring connections with the Gospel.
