Laubach to ghandi
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.”

“ 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.”

Dr. Sam the Foreign Mission Field 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.’”

Literacy workers
Literacy Workers the Foreign Mission Field 

“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

Where illiteracy reigns the church is impoverished
Where illiteracy reigns, the church is impoverished the Foreign Mission Field 

  • 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).”
