Story number 4 for 9 Apr 2003

(South Africa) — Next, with HIV/AIDS spreading uncontrollably in Africa, Christian radio may be able to help. Trans World Radio‘s International director for Africa Steven Boakye-Yiadom (BWAchee-YAHdohm) has the task of evangelizing the continent via radio. He passionately believes the struggles of the countries would be changed by the simplicity of the Gospel. “I have always been telling my people in Africa that Africa’s problem is not political, it’s spiritual, and unless you deal with the spiritual issues on the continent, you will never really overcome our political problems. That’s where we are coming from. It has to begin with a change of the heart, and if the heart is changed, corruption in the society in Africa today will be eliminated.” Boakye-Yiadom (BWAchee YAHdohm) says they are in a race for time because the people of Africa are showing a ravenous hunger for both the hope of Christ and training. Plans are in the works to organize new programming for West Africa, as well as South Africa.
