Customer support of the YouVersion Bible app is not the correct title for what I (David) do to help people engage with the Bible app. I am a user advocate, I want to help people engage with the Bible in a language they can understand I want to share the challenges that many around the world have with being able to access it. I want those on my team to have a passion not only for the Word of God but a desire to make it accessible.
I was recently asked the following question:
I search bible in madura language
Are youversion bible haven’t bible in madura language ?
May God bless you .
I did a quick search and I saw we do not have the Madura Bible available in the app. Although we have the Bible available in 1188 languages we do not yet have this Madura Bible easily accessible on your smart phone anywhere. Why is this important? There are over 7 million speakers of Madura and less than 0.1 % are professing Christians.
I was able to share the link to the audio Bible that is available from Faith Comes by Hearing and I also sent a link to the Indonesian Bible Society where they can purchase a hard copy of the Bible that was completed in 1994.
Please pray with me for the continued partnerships of Bible Societies around the world as we add additional languages to the YouVersion app. And for the many developers and administrators that are working to overcome some of the various technical challenges of adding languages whose alphabets are not currently available on mobile devices. Pray with me for this user who is searching for the scriptures in Madura. Pray that God will raise up the estimated 150 workers that will be needed to reach the Madura people.
Count me among those who are praying
Yes, I’ll be praying for the Madura translation…soon, and for Bible societies’ partnerships.
