Bible story books help Moi people learn to read

The Moi language is spoken by about 6,400 people in Indonesia. It became a written language only about 12 years ago. Moi people are still learning to read their heart language. CAM’s Bible story book was translated into Moi within the past few years and is being used to teach the people how to read.

“We have a lot of interest from all ages to attend literacy [classes],” wrote a Christian worker in Indonesia. “They are eager to read God’s Word and are thrilled to have a book of Bible stories with great pictures.”

CAM’s Bible story book is translated into 75 languages and has helped introduce the Bible to millions of people. If you wish to help take Bibles, Bible story books, and other Christian literature to people around the world, you may donate using the link below. 

God Provides for a Paralyzed Shoemaker

War took its toll on Liberia nearly 14 years ago, and it is still creating adversity for many of its victims. Loss of loved ones, physical disabilities, and severe poverty are ongoing hardships for many Liberians.

Marcus Barchue and his family know all too well the effects of war. While fleeing the conflict, Marcus was partially paralyzed after being hit by a rocket. The rocket damaged his spinal cord, leaving his legs mostly inoperable. Life as a father now has a unique set of challenges.

Although Marcus can’t walk, he uses his hands to repair shoes and teach sign language. When he has enough money to purchase supplies, he also makes shoes to sell. Even though Marcus works diligently, his limited working abilities make it difficult to provide for his family. Aside from providing for his own six children, Marcus also takes care of his sister’s two children who lost their mother in the war.

While investigating needy situations in Liberia, CAM staff members found Marcus. He now receives food parcels through the International-Feed-A-Family program. Marcus is so grateful for the boost the food parcels give him and his family. When asked what items in the parcels they especially like, he said, “My little son likes the dried apples. I like the cornmeal.”
