Sending solar-powered Bibles to Haiti

http://www.jewishjournal.com/blog/item/sending_solar-powered_bibles_to_haiti_20100118/

I’ve heard of sending solar-powered cookers to Darfur. But this response to the crisis in Haiti, a response to what must be the anger many are feeling with God, is a new one. It’s a Bible:

Not any Bible. These are solar-powered audible Bibles that can broadcast the holy scriptures in Haitian Creole to 300 people at a time.

Called the “Proclaimer,” the audio Bible delivers “digital quality” and is designed for “poor and illiterate people,” the Faith Comes By Hearing group said. It added 600 of the devices were already on their way to Haiti.

The Albuquerque-based organisation said it was responding to the Haitian crisis by “providing faith, hope and love through God’s Word in audio.”
