Telegu: 75 million more people can now use the Message Hub Mobile
We are pleased to report that the Indian language of Telegu is now on the Message Hub Mobile app. Telegu is a primary language of three provinces in India, with 75 million native speakers. It is one of six major language of the Indian subcontinent. India also has up to 30 smaller languages of over one million native speakers each. This makes translation of the Message an ongoing challenge in this part of the world. But Telegu has been first before, it was the first language in which the Message of the Hour was printed by Bible Believers in India.
Any time a language is added to the Message Hub Mobile, there are many benefits. Believers can now carry the Message with them by way of an App on their mobile devices. This greatly reduces the need for expensive printing of paper books. It also provides search functions including Message and Bible Keyword Search.
One very popular tool on the Message Hub Mobile is the ability to link Scriptures to related comments in the Message, and vice versa. This is very useful for pastors and lay people alike. More and better access to the words of the Prophet both helps the Word spread, and also prevents doctrinal problems from arising.
At this time there are 145 Telugu sermons on the Message hub, leaving plenty of translation and imputing work yet to do. But every gain is an important landmark in the effort to propel the worldwide Bride of Jesus Christ forward.
