Global Seed Planters has already been involved in several areas of partnership with MegaVoice ranging from: language translation with people groups who did not have content; customizing solar player content for specific regions; solar player distribution among unreached people groups; and training of local leaders in how to use them for evangelism, discipleship and church planting.
The Amazing Results of Solar Players
Just one Indian leader received only five solar players for his small team just 6 months ago! Five team members were able to share with about 1,800 people. That is 1,800 x 5 or 9,000 people heard about Jesus in northern India through 1 leader and his small team using just 5 solar players! These 5 leaders were then able to lead 3,750 people to Jesus as a result of these people being able to hear a clear presentation of the Gospel in story form. How exciting is that! Needless to say, this influx of new believers had a great impact on the local churches there as well.

Solar Player Content
This 80-minute audio content, presents the Bible from Genesis to Revelation in the mother tongue of the people we are seeking to reach. Throughout the Old and New Testaments, this panoramic overview of the Scriptures highlights God’s plan to rescue fallen mankind.
A number of mission experts have acclaimed the Jesus Film as one of the greatest evangelistic tools of all time. It is the story of Jesus as told in the book of Luke. So whenever possible, Global Seed Planters includes the audio of this great resource on our solar players.
Global Seed Planters believes the Audio Bible Solar Player is one key way to reach the unreached…most of whom are illiterate or live in oral cultures. We work with the MegaVoice and their solar player product. Their vision was to reach the estimated 4 billion people who are unable to read God’s life-giving Word for themselves. Non-readers on every continent are now beginning to have access to the Scriptures in their own language, in a form they can readily understand.
Today, MegaVoice is home to an expansive Scripture audio library with 8,400 Scripture titles in 4,600 languages and dialects that Global Seed Planters has access to. Audio content ranging from a few minutes to 500 hours duration can be loaded onto these amazing players and then Global Seed Planters networks with leaders in other nations to see them delivered to areas of greatest need.
Teresia Wambui Mburu – 75 Years
“It is very overwhelming that God can remember me in such a way. I was not able to go to school and therefore I cannot read the Bible or anything else. The only time I could hear His Word was at church or during mid-week prayers. Now I can plan my own Bible study and get to hear His Word wherever I want. Now this will be my personal radio. I don’t need to hear the radio any more. I need this because it will make me grow to know God better as I wait to meet Him soon. I am so glad my son, thank you and thank all those who sent this gift to us.”
James Kamu Njuguna – 70 Years
“Today is one of the happiest days of my life. One of my friends showed me this Audio Bible Solar Player thing. I am very glad that for the next 3 months I will be able to hear God’s Word everyday. It will be a great companion as I graze my cows. Normally I talk to over 10 people as my cows graze and now instead of talking politics and passing the time by telling useless stories I will be welcoming my friends to listen God’s word with me as we graze our cows. I am very thankful for this awesome gift.”
