Christian radio in U-S helps Indonesians hear the Gospel

By May 12, 2004

USA (MNN) — Christian Radio listeners in the United States will be helping Indonesians hear the Gospel. Listeners of 107.3 FM, WDBA the Christian Station for Central and Western Pennsylvania in Dubois were asked to help Trans World Radio place radios in Indonesia, a country heavily influenced by Islam.

According to WDBA General Manager Dan Kennard the project was a 12-hour live effort to raise funds for radio kits to be distributed through Trans World Radio to listening groups in Indonesia. They sent a goal of 500 kits, or $17,500. However, God had other plans as listeners provided $30,110 to purchase 860 radio kits to help listeners hear the Good News through Christian radio in their own language.

Since more than 25 people listen to a single radio, more than 20-thousand people will be able to hear the Good News of Jesus Christ.

Kennard says listeners responded because the love Christian radio and wanted to make sure Christian radio could be heard by people in another part of the world. He says, “We struck a cord with our listeners.”

Pray that those who receive the radios will come to Christ and that churches will be established.
