A number of Christian radio and satellite programs reach North Africa. After hearing the Gospel, many North Africans will seek out expatriate Christians for more information.
This is especially true of Sudanese people, since many of them speak Arabic.
However, in the region where UCM is working, importing Christian printed materials is not permitted. As a result, several years ago, the ministry created a translation and duplication centre to produce Christian literature locally.
Through this project, many of the local people have received Christian audio, visual, and printed materials.
UCM’s goal is to distribute 170,000 pieces of Christian literature in Arabic, French, and English, and 4,000 videos this year.
WorldShare would like to help upgrade the duplication equipment including a digital video camera, a DVD copier, paper, blank DVDs and CDs, and cover the costs of one translator.
As the work of the duplication centre continues, additional tools and technology are needed to further the dissemination of God’s Word throughout the region.
