ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – A local non -profit is helping get the bible into the hands of American troops. The group called “Faith Comes by Hearing” has created bible sticks for military members which allow them to listen to the words of the bible no matter where they are.
The demand has been so high, they can’t keep up. They’re getting about 2,000 requests a week and have now sent out about 500,000 total.
Church member Gail Holiem has a son and daughter-in-law in the military and knows how important this is for many.
“They are our heroes wouldn’t have freedom or faith if not women and men willing to serve and anything we can do to encourage them and bring hope and strengthen relationship with god and families be able to do that,” Holiem said.
The group is the same one behind the scripture app that allows users to hear scripture readings in 800 different languages.
