God has assigned every Christian a place of humble service in the body of Christ. There are no exceptions. Willam Myers in his book, Pray: How to be Effective in Prayer, tells of two remarkable people: William Carey, missionary to India, and Carey‚Äôs bedridden, almost paralyzed sister. William Carey accomplished a Bible translation of work unequaled in missionary history and has been called ‚Äúthe father of modern missions.‚ÄĚ We don‚Äôt even know his sister‚Äôs name. She is mentioned only as Carey‚Äôs sister. But while Carey labored in India translating and printing parts or all of the Bible into forty languages, his sister lay on her back in London and prayed hour after hour, month after month, for all the details, problems, and struggles of her brother‚Äôs work. In telling this story of Carey and his sister, Myers asks the question, ‚ÄúTo whose account will God credit the victories won through this remarkable man?‚ÄĚ

Encouraging broadcaster feedback..
Below is some of the feedback from broadcasters we've received just this past week. We encourage you to contact them and tell them that you saw them here!
Grace Baptist Church, Grover Dean www.sermonaudio.com/graceglasgow"Our church is a small church. When our pastor came to us, he was a prison preacher and wanted to stay in touch with the prisoners that were regularly in attendance. We established a CD ministry specifically to these people that soon expanded to other friends of our pastor and the church. We also learned that postage and supplies were expensive. We looked for alternatives and were led to SermonAudio.
We originally joined up with SermonAudio to expand our footprint into livestreaming. We went to those on the mailing list and let them know about SermonAudio. Some switched and some chose an email format that was used to send links to the sermons. We did this to save money and expand our base of listeners. This format works well and we ‚Äúpreach‚ÄĚ its value to other churches and pastors. Our church has always been a supporter of outreach and missions. This service allowed us to do that.
One thing we did not consider was that our messages would be going out literally all over the world. Each month we print out the SermonAudio summary and report back to the church. We are constantly amazed that our little church is a messenger to almost every state and many, many countries around the world. Your service and format allows that to happen.
We occasionally look at other numbers. If we take those that attend, those that get CD‚Äôs, and those that listen on line, it‚Äôs a large crowd. We think about those that listen remotely and imagine how they are listening along with us. We wonder who they are and the circumstances that led them to listen along with us. We can never know unless they tell us, but it really does not matter. They are there.
We thank you for this service. It really is a great bargain. It is professionally done and the technical support is as good as it gets even though it is rarely needed. The process for uploading and managing the database of sermons is smooth and seamless. The user interface is very good."
Jackie Sanders, Secretary, Grace Bible Church www.sermonaudio.com/gracebible"SermonAudio has been a huge blessing to our church. Our pastor of 25 years recently retired and our people enjoy using SermonAudio to listen to messages he preached years ago. People also benefit from more recent messages. Overall we love the site. I find it very easy to work with. We have no complaints. Thank you for providing this service for us and other churches."
Eddie Argo, New Lebanon Baptist Church www.sermonaudio.com/nlbc30263"Our church stepped out on faith and subscribed hoping and praying that it would be a simple way for our members who missed services to be able to hear them. We could never have guessed that our modest church has now had sermons downloaded in 38 plus states and 15-20 countries around the world. Thank you for the service and May God continue to bless you all!!"
Larry Brown, Deacon, Grace Bible Church www.sermonaudio.com/gbctulsa"Your service is very easy to use. We enjoy receiving the monthly reports and see how many people are listening around the world. It‚Äôs a great encouragement to those who preach the Word of God at our church to hear that even people in closed countries are accessing our messages. We have our sermons on our own website as well but SermonAudio is a service we want to keep. Your website is accessible and very reliable. We appreciate what you do."
John Pittman Hey, Grace Bible Church www.sermonaudio.com/gracebiblechurch"We are very happy with SermonAudio, and it is a real blessing to our church members and to the folks who listen to our sermons. I have always had very prompt replies whenever I needed to address any issue, which is very rare. Your service is very professional and hardly a glitch ever takes place!"
We would encourage you to read through more testimonials we've received over the years from both listeners and broadcasters alike.
