LUTHERAN BRAILLE WORKERS
Lutheran Braille Workers exists to show the love of God to people with visual disabilities and to bring them into a growing relationship with God. We do this by engaging some 5,000 volunteers in over 150 Work Centers throughout the United States who joyfully produce approximately 250,000 volumes a year of Braille and specialized Large Print Bibles and Christian literature.
Lutheran Braille Workers is the largest Christian ministry in the world that provides Braille and specialized Large Print Bibles free of charge for the visually impaired. Thanks to the army of volunteers and thousands who financially support this ministry, Lutheran Braille Workers is able to place the Word of God into the hands of the blind and visually impaired at no expense to them.
In addition Lutheran Braille Workers has Outreach Centers throughout the United States which minister to the blind and people with visual disabilities with Jesus' love and with resources they can use. Most importantly, Outreach Centers provide a family of love and care. Many people who would not otherwise hear about Jesus connect to God's Word and His people at Outreach Centers.
Lutheran Braille Workers produces Braille Bibles in Amharic, Arabic, Burmese, Cantonese, Estonian, French, Indonesian, Kiswahili, Latvian, Malayalam, Romanian, Russian, Spanish, and English Contracted and Un-contracted Braille.
A Grade 2 Bible produced by Lutheran Braille Workers consists of 37 volumes embossed on durable 10x12 quality Braille paper with a production cost of $185 per set. Each Bible takes up 5 feet of shelf space and is lovingly produced by our volunteers. The Bibles are provided free of charge to blind and vision impaired readers throughout the world. In addition to the Bible, LBW also offers a variety of other Christian books and pamphlets in multiple languages.
In addition to offering Christian materials in 30 languages, our goal over the next few years is to add three more: Hindi, Russian and Tamil. By offering the Bible in these additional languages, LBW will join other Christian ministries serving people with visual disabilities in the 16 countries these language are spoken. There are more than 35 million people throughout the world who are blind, and it will take a coordinated and comprehensive effort by the whole Christian Church to meet their spiritual needs.
