Impact of Audio Scriptures

Tim Robinson

Greetings from a toasty Jos,

After the Dukawa New Testament was completed in early 2016, a recording of the New Testament and some Old Testament portions was made by the SIL Nigeria Vernacular Media Team. The Dukawa team continues to get positive outcomes from the 390 Dukawa Audiobibles distributed to the Dukawa churches. When the team first started distributing Audiobibles, they thought it would help believers grow in Christ. Surprisingly, many church members realized, after hearing the Scriptures in their mother tongue, that they did not know what it meant to believe and depend on Christ.

Robinsons-GrainStoreSo far, over 3,800 people have accepted the Lord as a result of listening to the Dukawa Audiobible. More surprising has been the response of village pastors who have humbly admitted they did not understand the trade language Hausa Bible. Pastor Amos went so far as to say that some of what he had been teaching was wrong because he misunderstood the Hausa Bible.

After listening to the Audiobible, one Dukawa man said,
“When I first heard the Audiobible, I felt as if I was dreaming, but when I heard it 2-3 times, I realized I was not dreaming. Now I can understand … I am going to be … a Christian.”

Praise God for His work in using His Word in the Dukawa language to draw more Dukawa people to Himself in truth and understanding!


Tim, Ali and Dan Robinson.
