Thanks to God’s blessing and your generous support, the official AP Spanish Web site is now a reality! Our efforts to defend the Christian Faith are now being instantly multiplied by this additional avenue of outreach. Are you aware that Spanish and English are in a virtual dead heat to be the second most spoken language in the world? As of 1999, Spanish had 332 million speakers, while English had 322 million. [NOTE: Both were far behind Chinese, with 885 million, though if people who speak English as a second language were included, English would come out on top.] And what’s more, about 5.8 percent of the people who use the Internet speak Spanish, making it the No. 4 language in the Internet community, following English (51.3 percent), Japanese (8.1 percent), and German (5.9 percent). Close behind is Chinese with 5.4 percent, followed by French with 3.9 percent. [Source: “Spanish Facts and Stats,” (On-line), URL: http://spanish.about.com/library/weekly/aa070300a.htm.]
In its continuing mission to provide the world with evidence for the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, Apologetics Press is endeavoring to cross language barriers. The Apologetics Press Spanish Department is in the capable hands of Moisés Pinedo. Having chosen to use his special talents in service to others, Moisés deserves accolades for his untiring efforts to pioneer this unique and timely tool.
Initially, the site offers individuals access to a considerable number of articles, tracts, and even our three Bible Correspondence Courses which contain ten lessons each. Additional materials are continually added as the site more nearly mirrors its English counterpart. The URL is: http://www.ApologeticsPress.org/espanol.
Please spread the word! This tool of evangelism ought to be used. The world needs to be made aware that this resource is available. Those whose first language is Spanish deserve access to the materials now available to them. And keep in mind that Moisés and Michael are available for speaking engagements should you wish to put their talents to use in your community.
May God bless this additional effort to apprise people of their duty to Him.
