News from the Asia Pacific region
- Offering radio and community development training
Recently, a partner in Nepal held their first-year anniversary celebration for one of their four radio stations. They hosted a training event to give 20 young people the knowledge and practical skills in radio, community development initiatives, and agricultural projects.
Our partner also invited the mayor and local officials to the celebration where they heard stories of the station’s impact. As a result, the mayor offered to support and work with the radio station to improve more lives in their community.
- Training radio partners to share the good news of Jesus
Our workers provided training to radio partners in Indonesia and Thailand for the first time in three years. They also evaluated future training needs.
News from Central Asia
- Caring for the sick and offering lasting hope
Thanks to the generosity of supporters like you, our medical team in a Central Asian country saw 520 patients during a four-day medical caravan mission in remote areas. Some patients they saw had suffered for years simply because they were unable to see a doctor.
- Faith stories on YouTube attracting interest from seekers
Our Reach Beyond workers provided a recording studio to a local partner some years ago, and together they are consistently producing Christian audio and video content in that country.
Recently they launched a new YouTube channel where they are streaming stories of local Christians sharing how they found Jesus. These stories are generating lots of inquiries from viewers, but also threats from Islamic radicals.
- Medical missions to serve the needy
On another medical mission trip, our workers and local medical professionals offered 1300 consultations during a five-day trip to two villages. They were warmly welcomed by people in these isolated communities without churches and very little access to medical care.
News from Africa
- More radio programmes in North Africa
With your help we delivered 5 fixed-tuned radios to a partner for testing in the highlands of Morocco. If the tests are successful, we will be able to produce more radio programmes in the Berber language that will share the good news of Jesus in this area.
Thanks to the generosity of mission-loving supporters like you, we sent a simple recording studio to Cameroon that will be used for producing content specifically for women. These radio programmes will be aired on various stations throughout Africa.
- Gifts of radio receivers and more
We praise God for the granting of a new FM license in Cameroon, and for the fact that all 640 solar radios we sent made it to their destination stations!
