AWR Speaks in Tongues— 107 to Be Exact...and Counting!
You will probably agree that if your neighbor doesn’t know Christ, they should. But what if you are literally unable to speak their language? If English is your only language, for example, how can you communicate with your Vietnamese, Ethiopian, or Turkish neighbor about the peace and hope you have through Jesus Christ?
It is this challenge that prompted Adventist World Radio (AWR) to launch a massive Internet podcasting outreach that makes gospel programming available to listeners around the world in their own languages, regardless of where they live. Just imagine the possibilities! Now almost 2 billion Internet users across the planet can access the Adventist message of hope in Christ in more than 100 mission-critical languages.
In its first 90 days of going “live,” the United States has become the largest consumer of almost every one of the 107 languages now available on the Internet. But there is more!
To help church members utilize the podcasts to reach their neighbors, AWR is developing downloadable “neighbor invitations” in every broadcast language, which can be printed and shared with friends and neighbors. Check it out now by going to awr.org/invite.
“When people are living far from their homelands they are especially anxious to hear messages in their mother tongues,” says Benjamin Schoun, AWR board chair.
“This is amazing technology,” says Dowell Chow, AWR president. “AWR is committed to helping you share the good news of salvation with people right in your own neighborhood. And now it is easier than ever before.
“Because of faithful ministry partners like you, AWR has grown in ways that the organization’s leaders could hardly have imagined when they aired the first broadcast in 1971. Today, we are truly speaking in tongues by blanketing almost 80 percent of the world’s population. We are on the air thousands of hours each and every day using AM, FM, shortwave, Internet, and podcasts.”
The Holy Spirit is being poured out around the world and now is the time to act. Please pray for us today!
