Dear Oasis Friend,

Growth in Bible distribution throughout Africa

In 2022 Bible outreach grew by 40% building on four years of double-digit growth. If the Africa Bible Fund is able to secure extra dollars in 2023, Oasis will deploy 130,000 Bibles this year. 

New resources for the Church in Africa

Oasis released 14 high quality books in 2022. Readers now have the resources that speak clearly to the issues facing Christians in Africa.
"Based on 19 years of congregational leadership, I can attest that we are in a divorce crisis. The Divorce Dilemma is a timely and practical resource for the church in Africa."
 –Rev Dr Linda Adolwa, E.D. of the Hatua Trust of Kenya

School Bible Programme entering phase 2 

Phase I of the School Bibles Programme equipped 50,000 schoolchildren with their own Bible. In partnership with established ministries working to further education in Africa (Scripture Union, Association of Christian Schools International, Awana), thousands of children now have Bibles to grow their faith in Jesus. These students study the NLT Africa Edition Bible at school. Phase II will equip 75,000 more children in 300 schools in 2023. 

Bibles for discipleship in Francophone Africa 

Thanks to partnerships for distribution of La Bible d'étude: perspectives africaines (BEPA), the French edition of the Africa Study Bible, more French-speaking Christians have access to this vital resource. BEPA is now available in fourteen additional countries of the Oasis network including hard to reach countries like Central African Republic, Chad, Guinea, and Mali.

Mobile payments a gamechanger  

According to GSMA (a moblie technology collaboration), the mobile economy generated 8% of GDP across Sub-Saharan Africa, $140 billion of economic value added in 2021.
Mobile banking services like M-Pesa and Flutterwave have eased transacting processes for Oasis in Africa. Nelson Nsibiet, Director of GoodNews Jail and Prison Ministry Nigeria said, “Before, I was turned down by my own bank to transfer $500 for Oasis Bibles. Now I use Flutterwave and make payments to Oasis easily from my phone."
