About Chad & Dara Vanden Bosch
Nearly one billion people worldwide can't study the Word of God because they can’t read. This is especially true in the country of Mozambique, where just 20 percent of the population is considered literate. Mozambique now has one of the fastest growing churches in all of Africa, but due largely to a lack of access to the Scriptures, spiritual growth and discipleship have been severely hampered. In Mozambique, as in many parts of the world, making the Bible available means providing Scriptures in audio form.
As director of African operations for Audio Scripture Ministries (ASM), Chad oversees audio Scripture recording and distribution projects throughout Africa. He travels from his base in Mozambique to new project locations in order to set up recording and distribution programs and train personnel in recording equipment and techniques. Dara is a trained nurse who coordinates ASM’s compassionate ministry projects in Mozambique. At the core of compassionate ministries is health awareness training and a hospice and palliative care program. The palliative care program strives for dignity in death and uses audio Scripture material to comfort patients and their families and friends.
