(Mission Network News) – Many years ago, Darrell Templeton was speaking to a group of Indian pastors and noticed something interesting. They weren’t looking up the Scripture he referenced, or taking notes. His translator explained that most of the pastors there could not read or write.
For the first time, Templeton witnessed a group of people for which written words would do nothing. They were oral learners.
This poses a problem for people trying to share the Gospel in the way that’s become so comfortable to the Western world—with written Scripture. What about those who don’t have a written language, or don’t read or write because it’s not how they function as a society? MegaVoice, the ministry that created the first solar-powered audio Bible for oral learners, is one ministry trying to answer these questions.
