Solar Powered Audio Bible Player for the Elderly

Mission:

Our mission is to provide elderly-friendly solar-powered audio players at no-cost to elderly people living in remote villages of Africa, leading many souls into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.

Who Are We?

At DaBible Foundations, we are a team of youths burning on fire for Christ, and we have the vision to plant the Word of God into the hearts of this generation through digital audio format. We have successfully translated and transcribed the Bible into three African languages. We have also produced the first and only complete Old and New Testament audio bible in Yoruba, Pidgin, and Hausa language.

Currently, our Yoruba Audio Bible mobile app which was launched in January 2016 has been downloaded by over 190,000 users, and the Yoruba Audio Bible is played more than 500,000 times in a day. All our mobile app reviews are rated 4.5 stars and we are receiving thousands of “Thank You” messages from our users!

BUT … We deeply desire to reach a forgotten generation.

The Forgotten Generation

Old Woman Smilling

A heavy burden rests on our hearts for the elderly who reside in remote villages that do not have access to the gospel of Christ. Many of them live alone for various reasons such as; their children have relocated to bigger cities in pursuit of education and/or economic opportunities. Some are at such an old age, that they’re unable to walk to church meetings that might be available (some are unable to attend the churches available because of age-related diseases or poor health conditions or distance from these churches). Many of them cannot read or write, thus, cannot operate a mobile app. So, they are at a great disadvantage in having access to the gospel of Christ.

Many of these elders were raised in the era of idol worshipping, and they pray with incantations and African proverbs. Some are labeled as witches and wizards. These people are dying on a daily basis without knowing the love of Jesus and believing in His saving grace. Where do they end up in eternity?

How God Called Us

To be a respite to this generation, God called us to put his word into the Hands and Hearts of people. This is our part in fulfilling the Kingdom mandate of Matt 28:19-20. Or paraphrase and include here…

God made this vision clear to us through infallible witnesses of His burden for this abandoned generation. The Holy Spirit spoke to us through two scriptures…

How then can they call on the One in whom they have not believed? And how can they believe in the One of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone to preach? And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!

“For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.”
Philippians 2:13 KJV

He has put His own will (desire) inside of us, he has given us the ability to execute. Therefore we are ready to be obedient to this call because a single soul means the world to the Father. It costs Him so much which included sending his only begotten son to save us from our sins.

501(c)(3) NGO Registration

We have successfully acquired our 501(c)(3) company registration as Kerygma Foundation both in Nigeria and in the United States of America. The new choice of our organization name is as a result of the Nigerian Corporate Affairs Commission who approved the Kerygma Foundation as opposed to our preferred DaBible Foundation. For the sake of simplicity, and to avoid confusing the general public in the future, we will gradually start operating as the Kerygma Foundation.

Thanks.

Gideons Bible

I remember as student in Junior High School, we had some people deliver many Gideon bible to my school for free. I was not present at the assembly when they were giving away the bibles to the students. I came late to school on that day. When I arrived, an older student—who was like an older brother to me—informed me that they were giving free bibles and insisted I get a bible.  I ran off quickly to get mine and I managed to get one of the copies they left behind. I read that Gideon bible seriously then. While I did not receive salvation then, that incident changed my life. The older student that told me to go get a bible then was deaf and dumb. He actually didn’t even hear what was said at the assembly. He only knew that the bible was important for my life, and I had to get a copy. He did everything he could to communicate this to me. And for me that day getting that bible was a must. I saw just how much effort my brother put to tell me about them. I was touched by this that I decided to read this bible seriously.

A student receiving the Gideons Bible as a donationNow, when I remember this incident, I am still amazed. Surprisingly, my deaf and dumb brother was the one that led me to read my very first bible. Wow! No wonder the bible says, ‘how beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!’. Some people somewhere paid for those bibles that were shared at the school that day. Some people chose to bring those bibles to our school that day. And my older brother who is deaf and dumb chose to pass this news to me. I got the bible free of charge, but countless people contributed to me getting this bible. Now, we have the opportunity to do the same. We need funds for making this audio devices. We need people to go into remote villages and distribute these devices to the elderlies. Will you be the ones to help proclaim the gospel?”

There you have it. We have to raise funds to support this project. These devices are going to be produced so we need committed people that will continue to support the production of this this device. We also need to find a proper distribution channel. People that will go on to distribute these devices in remote villages. This is the burden placed in our hearts and we pray for its fulfilment in Jesus name.
