An international radio ministry is reaching out into another country. Back to the Bible’s David Hansen says they’re launching into the Portuguese language, focusing on the country of Brazil. “Brazil is a big part of Latin America – a little over 165-million people live in Brazil and if you just talk about metro Sao Paulo alone you’ve got 22-million people. So, there’s a great need to teach the world of God to the many believers in Brazil.” Leandro Tarrataca has been appointed to head the new ministry. Hansen says prayer is needed. “Pray particularly for Leandro Tarrataca, the Director and Bible teacher. He, right now is in the stages of incorporating the ministry, forming a board and to begin actually recording those first programs. It is our desire to have about 3 months worth of programs on the shelf before we actually begin airing.” Back to the Bible has media ministry in 25 languages spoken by 50-percent of the world’s population.
