Get Involved


By engaging some 3,000 volunteers in over 110 Ministry Production Centers throughout the United States. LBW produces approximately 150,000 volumes a year of Braille and specialized Large Print Bibles and Christian literature.

In addition, Lutheran Braille Workers has over 40 Ministry Outreach Centers throughout the United States that minister to people who are Blind and Visually Impaired through the provision of 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.

A Global Ministry

Lutheran Braille Workers produces Braille Bibles in Amharic, Arabic, French, Indonesian, Kiswahili, Latvian, Malayalam, Russian, Spanish, and English Contracted Braille.

In addition to offering Christian materials in over 30 languages, our continuous goal is to add more languages. There are more than 35 million people throughout the world who are Blind, and an additional 205+ million people who are severely Visually Impaired. It will take a coordinated and comprehensive effort by the universal Christian Church to meet their spiritual needs.
