I have been donating to this ministry for well over a year.
They are great in communication back to me. Dollar for dollar this ministry reaches more people with the Gospel than any other. I have also used the solar powered Bibles they produce in Nepal, Sierra Leone Africa, and Ghana Africa. I only wish I could have taken more with me. Giving God's Word in the heart language is amazing!
I have visited the Faith Comes By Hearing Headquarters in Albuquerque, toured their facilities, reviewed their financials, and feel very comfortable supporting them on a regular basis.
I originally contacted this charity several years ago. I knew some missionaries that were helping to coordinate translation of Scripture into a people-group's "heart tongue on cassette tapes. Faith Comes by Hearing had a hand-cranked cassette player that was designed for use in low-technology areas. I was able to purchase and provide a few of the players for the project. After learning more about Hosanna/Faith Comes by Hearing my family decided to make routine contributions.
Though my contributions were relatively small (maybe $500 in a really good year) the organization provided excellent communication and ensured we were up-to-date on the activities and outreach. When my health failed and my family was unable to continue our small contributions, we were still provided full communication. Further, I have received several personal notes from staff members over the past years. In every case, I was encouraged and reminded that members of the Hosanna staff were continuing to pray for me.
My family's financial circumstances have changed as a result of a new job for my wife and this is the first organization that came to our minds as a deserving charity. We will be restarting our contributions immediately.
