The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
World Mission distributes, through its national partners, solar-powered audio Bibles (The Treasure) to oral learners living in unreached people groups.
World Mission is a non-profit Christian organization founded in 1994 to support projects that take the gospel into third-world countries. We utilize partnerships with several Christian ministries including those supporting Christian orphanages, youth ministries, counseling and rehabilitation centers and air transportation support around the world.
Prior to 2007, World Mission focused on that half of the world's adult population who could not read by recording and distributing the Talking Bible in the heart languages of those people.
In 2007 World Mission first distributed a much smaller, more efficient, solar-powered Bible for oral learners, called The Treasure. By the end of 2008, 2,968 Treasures had been distributed. By 2014, more than the 100,000 Treasure had been delivered to these previously unreached people groups.
A key component of our distribution is the relationship World Mission has with our national partners in the 10/40 Window. National partners work with indigenous churches and Christian organizations that share Treasures with people in the far reaches of the world, focusing on otherwise unreached people.
