Here are opportunities for anyone to give to heart language ministries.

Reach Out for As Little As $3

Mengen Literacy and Evangelism: The three churches among the Mengen people in Papua New Guinea are inundated with requests to learn to read and write and for Bible lessons. But they lack the materials they need to do so. Here are some of the specific things your gifts can help provide:
· Mengen literacy kit: $1,250
· Six Mengen Evangelistic Bible teaching booklets for teachers: $60 each
· 50 Bible study Booklets for Acts: $3 each
· 50 Bible study Booklets for Romans: $3 each
· 50 Mengen Bibles: $10 each


Guahibo Bible Printing: The Guahibo church of Colombia has a wonderful problem
that you can help solve. Interest in God’s Word is so high that they are out of Bibles. With your help, they can print 20,000 more copies at a cost of less than $14 each.


Bible Translation: Your gift to Bible translation means another people group will be able to open God’s Word in their own language, read it and understand it. That’s because your $35 gift provides for translating a verse; for literacy materials so people can learn to read and write; and for Bible lessons in their language.
