10,000 radios! FEBC delivers radios and words of hope
Imagine a small village surrounded by huts in a remote area of
Southeast Asia. Children dart down dusty roads in bare feet, calling
out to one another. Chickens and dogs scurry out of the way as old
farmers guide water buffaloes from rice paddies to local streams.
Suddenly, villagers call to one another and children stop their play
to join the adults in one of the larger dwellings. Everyone gathers in
a circle around a single radio and grows quiet, waiting for the
familiar voice of the broadcaster who says, ‘This is FEBC Radio
One Radio Touches Many
The group listens with excitement as the broadcast begins, sharing
the message of Christ. The daily program offers time in God's Word,
worship, and inspiring messages, along with practical advice for daily
As villagers return to their fields, they discuss what they heard on the broadcasts... news that is changing their lives!
Radio Is Safe
In places where political persecution, geographical barriers, and
cultural biases often prevent people from attending church, radio
provides a safe place to discover the truth.
Not only for those living in remote locations, but also for city
dwellers, the poor... even survivors of natural disasters. Because of
this, FEBC makes it an ongoing priority to distribute radios to our
field offices so that people can tune in to the Good News.
In 2008 alone, FEBC delivered almost 10,000 radios to people in
Myanmar, China, Philippines, Vietnam, Cambodia, Indonesia, and
Russia... people like Nurjanna from Indonesia who told us, ‘I cried
when I received this radio. Now my family is so happy because we can
listen to Christian programs whenever we want.’
There are also people like Lia, who said, ‘It's such a joy getting a
radio from FEBC! I've been waiting to have one but didn't have the
money. Praise God!’
All of this is possible with the help of our supporters. As one
listener said, ‘I'm amazed there are people who freely give away
radios. It feels like a miracle! May the Lord Jesus richly bless you.’
