Are you wondering where in the world Malagasy or Chichewa is spoken? We can answer that question for you, too. The languages listed are not randomly selected, but are the languages spoken by our employees. We are active in more than 50 countries around the world to proclaim the Good News of Christmas. 

The Good News of Christmas contains an offer of peace to all people – no matter what language they speak. That is why Jesus came into our troubled world and met all people without prejudice. Regardless of their beliefs and lifestyles, He spent time with them. People found peace and reconciliation with Jesus.
