Reaching the Berber people of North Africa with the Gospel requires relevant and effective evangelistic tools.
Technology in the Arab world is very advanced, and on almost every city street there are shops selling computer and multi-media equipment.
The Berber Evangelistic Association is taking advantage of the opportunities by providing high quality Christian media that is permeating the Berber population with unique presentations of the gospel message.
These presentations include the complete Berber New Testament on audio cassette and CD, as well as the translation of 26 videos of the Superbook series for children.
A collection of films on the lives of Old Testament figures and the Jesus film have been produced as well, all in Berber.
Gifts to this project will cover the costs of producing and distributing 5,000 CDs, VCDs, and DVDs every month.
It will also cover studio equipment including a computer, duplicator, digital camera, and lighting, and the support of 9 workers who will also be working on weekly television and radio programs.
As it is illegal in Algeria to proselytize, media provides an excellent means to spread the Gospel effectively. With continued support for this dedicated group of 15 workers, there is the possibility in the next few years for the majority of Berbers in North Africa to hear the Gospel in their own language.
