Hope after receiving a death sentence
After receiving a death sentence for committing murder, I lost all hope in life and saw no purpose for living.
One day in prison, I was given a radio and accidentally tuned into an FEBC broadcast. As I listened, I discovered that there was a source for hope in the person of Jesus Christ and my heart was changed.
Eventually I wrote to Saya*, the director of FEBC-Myanmar, and shared about my changed life. I also expressed a desire to be released from jail one day. Though we never met, Saya prayed and wrote to me, encouraging me in my faith.
Over time, my jailers thought that I changed so much that I was released from prison.
This story like the hundreds of thousands sent by listeners to FEBC displays the grace and power of our mighty God.
Strangers No More
One of the first things I wanted to do was visit Saya and thank him for his prayers and encouraging letters.
One day Saya opened his door and found a stranger on his doorstep. I told him, “I’m the person you prayed for and wrote to when I was in prison.”
When Saya realized it was me, he reached out and embraced me, strangers no more. Given the death penalty and devoid of any hope for my life, I now serve the Lord through full-time ministry.

Words do not adequately express the hope we have in Christ and the privilege we have in sharing in this ministry of bringing Christ to the World through radio.
This is the difference a radio can make. Partner with us in changing lives for eternity.
