Millions couldn’t read the Bible even if it was given to them in their own language. In fact, 773 million adults in the world can’t read. Additionally, 1.2 billion people don’t have the benefits of electricity. Through no fault of their own, these hundreds of millions of people are left out of receiving the gospel. In an effort to better reach the most remote peoples of the world, SIBI has developed and launched the Solar Mission.
The solar player is a hand-held audio player that is powered by the sun. Each solar player contains the entire Bible, SIBI’s core courses, World Bible School lessons, New Life Behavior lessons, and multiple hours of hymns. Over ten thousand have been distributed across Africa, Central & South America, and Asia in the common language of the people, resulting in an exponential growth in believers.
