Oral tradition ignites Scripture passion for radio producers.

By April 30, 2007

Africa (TWR/MNN) — Radio producers for Fulfulde and Kanuri language groups of West Africa are enthusiastic about the effectiveness of Trans World Radio's OneStory strategy.                                                                                  

It's a method of Bible story teaching to oral learners, or the illiterate. Currently, 21 stories are coming together for two believers preparing the OneStory programs.

An extensive one-year training course is taking place for these producers before they can begin recording their first radio programs for oral learners. 

They are completely convinced that the OneStory strategy of chronological Bible story-telling is the best method they can imagine for reaching their people with the word of God.

TWR quotes John, the project manager for OneStory training, as saying it's a phenomenon to see the indigenous Christians take ownership of the project. "They took the Chronological Storying handbook (approximately 74 pages) and memorized the entire manual! They have clearly adopted this method as their own and actually claim that this strategy is really African in nature!"

Pray for God's anointing on these men as they put words out over the airwaves to like-minded people in their heart-language. Pray also for peace and safety as they undertake this calling from the Lord.
