soldier with BibleStickThe world's largest audio Bible ministry is celebrating a significant milestone.

Faith Comes By Hearing has seen the distribution of its one millionth Military BibleStick. Those in the military have benefited from the content in this digital audio player since 2008. The device comes pre-loaded with a dramatized recording of the New Testament and specially selected Psalms.

Program Director Bill Lohr admits that when they first started, they were not sure it would be a large outreach, but the Lord had other plans.

"It really ramped into something that we had no idea whatsoever," he tells OneNewsNow. "It really was a God thing in the sense that He saw this need and He knew that it was going to have to happen. We were not prepared for it, but it has turned into 12-15,000 a month that are still going out, and it's been a decade now."

Lohr's ministry views the military as a people group outreach.

"It's a very specific culture that they live in – high stresses – and we want to make sure they have God's Word," he says. "They're making decisions that are life and death decisions; they need to have the way, the truth, [and] the life in their ears and in their hearts."

"Our goal is to ensure that no service member or veteran who wants a BibleStick is overlooked," Lohr declares.
