A woman in China wears the audio player she received from TWR around her neck. When others laugh at her, she doesn’t let them intimidate her. “What a good thing it is to believe in Jesus,” she said.

She received the audio player as part of TWR’s SON-Lift project, an outreach to more than 100 of China’s unreached people groups (UPGs). The audio players come preloaded with 60 dramatized Bible stories about the life of Jesus as well as an audio Bible and hymns.
