• The Light Shines in the Darkness

    “Everyone who follows Jesus, stay right there!” the witch doctor commanded. She still wanted ASM’s Compassionate Care (CC) Team to come and help care for her sick sister-in-law–but not to come too close. She later stated, angrily, that the demons have started leaving her and she’s having trouble “getting business”...

  • Clear Hope in Prison

    Alaska is considered by many to be America’s “last frontier” because of its vast untamed beauty. Yet like many states, the last frontier struggles with high prison recidivism. Alaska prison Chaplain Scott Thompson says more than two thirds of inmates in Alaska “are re-incarcerated within 3 years,” which he attributes...

  • RADICAL GENEROSITY

    “Lord, please help me to be generous,” is my prayer every day. I’ve found, maybe you have too, that praying to live generously is like asking God for patience.  Opportunities to live that prayer generously toward others come at the most “inconvenient” times! British evangelist and theologian John Wesley said,...

  • “Pray for HOPE for our nation.”

    One young couple, Christian leaders in Greater South Asia, ask for your prayers.

For many months ASM’s Bible Engagement Director, Tara Rye, and her husband Greg...

  • In Life and In Death

    When you share God’s Word, it brings comfort in life—and in death. For those who know Theresa (pictured, right), both were the case!  A Gospel Partner in southern Mozambique shared how a dear patient, affectionately known as Vovó (Grandma) Theresa, recently passed away. Yet, the comfort and hope you helped...

  • Low Wattage, High Impact

    “We’re broadcasting the Bible in our Mixteco [language], thanks to the audio Bible you brought!” the national partner told Jim and Jamie Loker, ASM’s Latin America Directors.  After Jim’s latest trip re-visiting villages in southern Mexico, we heard more good news: several new low-wattage “community radio stations,” many operating informally...

  • We Can Carry Stories

    What if the only Scriptures you could share were the ones you had hidden in your heart? In June, a young man reached out to ASM’s Bible Engagement Director, Dr. Tara Rye, with the request that she help teach Biblical storytelling to him and his wife. They live in a...

  • More Than Ever Before

    How often do you suppose you’ve heard or read John 3:16? I was raised in a Christian family, and became a follower of Jesus at age 13.  If I calculate hearing or reading John 3:16 even once a month since then, it’s conceivable that I’ve heard the Truth of that...

  • 4+ TONS OF LOVE — ARRIVED SAFELY

    Your prayers were answered! On 30 July the 40-foot container you helped send to Mozambique arrived safely, filled with much-needed audio recording and agricultural equipment, medical and humanitarian supplies.

  • Roda

  • All Of God’s Word Matters

    “Can you imagine—not having the Psalms?!” Availability of the full Bible in audio is something God has been putting on the hearts of Jim and Jamie Loker, ASM’s Latin America Directors.  While the Old Testament (OT) in Spanish is available and may be understood by some, heart language translations of...

  • The “G” In Partnership

    That isn’t a typo and YES you did read that right.   Of course, there really isn’t a “g” in the spelling of the word partnership, at least not in its English spelling!  Yet, there is a “g” in partnerships at Audio Scripture Ministries (ASM) because the ‘“g” represents Gospel Partnerships.  ASM...

  • 2,698 Cubic Feet of Love

    What real difference can one hand-knitted hat make in someone’s life, you might wonder.  The 3 or 4 hours you invested in knitting each hat, choosing just the right yarn and pattern, praying for the person who will wear it, is making a difference in Mozambique.  “People here in rural...

  • God Knew…

    “Not a day goes by that we don’t use something that came in the last container,” is a statement often said by Chad and Dara Vanden Bosch. Only God knew how crucial the 2019 Container would be for the Vanden Bosch’s continued ministry in Mozambique, as the pandemic shut down...

  • New Harvest Farm Update

    For the average family in central Mozambique, it has been a painful start to 2021. Two back-to-back cyclones in January brought 10-15 inches of sudden rain. Because 90% of the community are subsistence farmers, living off whatever they can grow in an acre or so, this was devastating. As Chad...
