Because 70% of the world's population lives in oral cultures and 50% cannot read at a functional level, the only way billions of people will ever know the heart of the Gospel message is to hear it. Still thousands of language groups do not have a written translation, much less an audio version of God's Word.
Every Tribe Every Nation (ETEN), an alliance of key translation organizations and donors, recently set an objective to ensure that every person in the world would have enough Scripture by the year 2033 to come to Christ and become a disciple. Alongside ETEN, Faith Comes By Hearing has launched Vision 2033: To partner with like-minded ministries to record Scripture in every language of the world that needs it by the year 2033 and make these recordings freely available by every means possible.
The fulfillment of Vision 2033 will result in:
A New Testament recording in the heart language of 99% of the people in the world.
At least a portion of Scripture recorded for the remaining 1% of people in their heart language.
At least one Gospel Film in the heart language of everyone in the world.
These Audio and Video Scriptures being freely available to every person on Earth.
