In South Asia, we are broadcasting The Way of Righteousness and other programmes in the Saraiki language, as well as running radio home groups. Many are learning more about Jesus and coming to faith because of these programmes!
A man called Omar*, who is a shepherd in a desert region, shared his story with us: “I often meet other shepherds for a gathering under a banyan tree. Many times, I heard sounds from an MP3 audio player from my fellow friends. I wondered what was playing. I asked one of them to let me listen to it as it was in Saraiki (my mother tongue). It touched my heart and I wanted to hear more. I asked my friend to lend me the audio device so that I could hear it while grazing my flock. When I am out in the fields, I have time to focus on the programme and I have learned a lot from it. Focused listening made me understand the core of praying and now, I know how to pray to God. I have become very confident in praying and in my knowledge of the faith. Many times, I have questions and need a little guidance. I get assistance and help from a TWR representative whose contact number is available with the media kit. The guidance is prompt and illustrated. I am very happy with this programme! Thank you and God bless you.”
Aliyah*, who lives within a Muslim community, shared this testimony: “I am a housewife who is 45 years old. I am happy in the Lord and God has given me many blessings. I have two sons and a good husband. In the past, I had a lot of problems and I was sick. I heard the Word of God through The Way of Righteousness programme on an MP3 player. I learned from this programme that our life belongs to God alone. As the Lord says in his Scripture, ‘I am the path of truth and life.’ Listening to the Word of God in the programme tells me the truth that we should always trust God. Listening to this programme has really changed me! Now I live in the fear of God. I used to lie, but now I hate lying. Listening to the Word of God has given me a lot of confidence and I share the Gospel with others!”
Praise God for these testimonies! Join us as we pray for the people listening to these programmes, that they will understand the messages and come to know Jesus personally.
