Mission 66, a contemporary audio Bible commentary developed by Brazilian scholar Luiz Sayão, will reach a wider audience thanks to a partnership with TWR. The agreement was signed by Sayão and Lauren Libby, president and CEO of TWR, in a March 22 ceremony at the mission agency’s U.S. headquarters in Cary, North Carolina.

The program, known as Rota 66 (or Route 66) in Brazil, is a takeoff on the name of a famous U.S. highway. But it also refers to the 66 books of the Bible, which it covers from beginning to end.

TWR will work to bring the program to as much of the world population as possible as soon as possible, said Esteban Larrosa, TWR vice president for Latin America, the Caribbean and U.S. Hispanic ministries. “In the first phase, we will be going to the 10 major languages, spoken languages, of the world, so that most of the population will have access to the content.”
