Darrel Templeton of Megavoice

For the past few months, Megavoice has been supporting Engaging Missions. Now we get to hear from Darrel Templeton about his work with Megavoice. Having worked with radio and mass communication, Darrel is passionate about making the Bible accessible to people through audio. By recording the Bible in different languages, Megavoice can bring the Gospel to people all over the world.

Recently, Megavoice has been working on a video Bible for the deaf community in different sign languages. They also have over 43 languages lined up to record soon. In the episode, Darrel shares about the need for hearing the Scriptures in order to understand them better.

When they actually hear the Bible in their mother tongue, or heart language, it doesn’t have to go through the brain. It goes straight to their heart, straight to their spirit, and they can understand that in a deeper way.
