Evangelists in Sierra Leone are using digital media players to share the "Good News" of the Gospel with Muslims and other unreached people within the country. Because of illiteracy and poverty, many of them cannot access God's Word in their own language.

With the use of high-quality speakers, the digital players enable evangelists to share Scripture, sermons and other Christian materials with as many as 300 people at a time. Please pray for the evangelists as they reach out to those who have never before heard God's Word, and for His blessings to be upon all the recipients.
