Alzheimers' Eye Test

  • Count every " F" in the following text: FINISHED FILES ARE THE RESULT OF YEARS OF SCIENTIFIC STUDY COMBINED WITH THE EXPERIENCE OF YEARS...

  • HOW MANY ? 3… maybe 6

  • The reasoning is that the brain cannot process the word "OF".


The History


Dr. Robert F. Rice1921-2002


Dr. Frank Laubach 1884-1970


Frank LaubachMissionary to the Philippines


Moro - Literacy Campaign

  • “Teach or Die”

  • 70,000 people learn to read/write

  • “Each One Teach One”

  • Primers in 300 languages & 100 countries

  • “The Apostle of literacy”


Laubach to Ghandi:

“The greatest single blessing that ever came to the world was the life and teaching of Jesus Christ. If Christ had not been written and if we had not been able to read the Gospels, we would know very little about him.”


Bob Rice meets Laubach in 1945 A vision was born…

“ I saw the importance of adult literacy and at the same time an evangelistic potential in literacy missions.”


Literacy Methods Used as a Medium for Personal Evangelism on the Foreign Mission Field  - Princeton Seminary Thesis

“Only the everlasting gospel which is for every nation and kindred and tongue and people can redeem literacy. Then will literacy evangelism be like a sharp sword and a polished shaft in the hand of the Lord. It will not only be a channel for introducing the good news of Christ, but a primary means for enabling the good news to take firm root and bear fruit in ever widening dimensions.”


Mission to Korea: 1950-1965

  • Rural evangelism

  • Bible Institute

  • Ministry to 700

    “street children”

  • Literature

  • Literacy


Alice & boys in Japan


Where’s the current LEI director?


Dr. Sam Moffatt

“In the early days of the Korean Church, wise missionaries and pastors said, ‘all you need to be saved is to know the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Savior. But if you want to become a full member of his church in Korea, you’re going to have to learn to read. You’re not going to be equipped Christians until you read the Word of God for yourselves. Then and only then are you equipped to tell others… what God’s Word is saying to them.’”


Birth of Literacy & Evangelism

  • Oral Roberts University

  • Laubach co-teaches "Literacy Techniques in Missions. "

  • Invited to join LL

  • Bob instead begins Literacy & Evangelism


Laubach’s Endorsement

“The L&E program is closer to the heart

of God than any other…because (it can)

win souls to Christ.”

- F. Laubach


Influence of the Summer Institute of Linguistics:

  • Education & research arm of Wycliffe

  • Reduce oral languages to writing & translate the Bible

  • SIL training Norman,OK

  • Dr. Sarah Gudschinsky


Literacy Workers

“That person is fully literate who in a language that he speaks, can read and understand anything that he would have understood if it had been spoken to him; and who can write anything he can say, so it can be read.”

- Sarah Gudschinsky

“Literacy workers are needed wherever translation is being done. After all, what’s the use of giving people the Bible if they can’t read it? It would be like putting in a water system for people dying of thirst but not providing any faucets.”

-Wycliffe Bible Translator


LEI Approach to Primer Construction

  • Consistent lesson format – Laubach

  • Syllable boxes – Gudschinsky

  • Bible-content – Rice

    • Bible reference in every lesson

    • Name of Jesus introduced in Lesson 12

    • Simple stories about Him in each lesson

    • 26 simplified passages of Scripture


Literacy Needs

  • Conclusions drawn from Laubach, ABS & SIL

    • 90% world has entire Bible in Mother Tongue

    • 95% world has the New Testament in MT

    • 98% world has some Scripture in MT

  • 1967 – 50% of the world illiterate

  • Present - 2 billion people illiterate

  • These people are totally or functionally illiterate.

  • This is a “blind spot” in mission’s today.

Where illiteracy reigns, the church is impoverished

  • Morris Watkins, ”there is no record of the church in any land, being strong spiritually where the leadership was illiterate or where laymen were not encouraged to read the Bible.”

  • Written on a blackboard of a Christian school in Harrison, Arkansas, “the devil doesn’t want people to read, because God wrote a book.”

  • John Wesley, “it cannot be that people should grow in grace unless they give themselves to reading (the Bible).”


Allen & Joan Lovekin serving in Kinshasa, DRC

“Its wonderful. Ten new classes on the coast, 40 new teaching centers in northern Zaire, 100 teaching sites in Kinshasa…. Illiterate people are learning to read their own language from a Bible-based primer. They are having their faith deepened and their minds opened to health, farming and nutrition…”
