TWR has launched a radio series aimed at bringing the hope and peace of Jesus Christ to Sudan, a nation blighted by political instability, economic crisis and massive flooding.
The compilation of radio and digital media programs, called Hope for Sudan, is designed by TWR’s (also known as Trans World Radio) Arabic Ministries to bring timely biblical messages to the people of this North African country. In addition to the crises disturbing the nation, strict societal norms based upon Islamic law hold sway, making it difficult for the few indigenous Christians and seekers wishing to pursue the faith.
TWR is broadcasting a selection of programs in general Arabic – widely understood in the country – that connect well with the audience. However, the team is also building up its content in the Arabic-Sudanese dialect. The content includes devotions with an emphasis on God’s love, and it shares spiritual hope and comfort through Scripture and prayer. Listeners are encouraged to rely on God for help, giving them a reason to have real hope. The programs also provide practical information based on the audience members’ physical and emotional needs.
The broadcasts began airing on Oct. 26, 2020, via shortwave from an Africa-based transmitter site. Along with the hour of content being aired on shortwave, the programs can be streamed at arabicprograms.org and on social media platforms. The well-equipped follow-up team handles all the correspondence with listeners through email, social media, WhatsApp and phone calls.
The Radio Special, Christmas Comes Alive is available for free to all stations from Daywind Records. This 2020 Daywind Choir Christmas Musical is 30 minutes in length and produced to run as a full uninterrupted presentation. Stations can run commercials around or sell to a local sponsor. The program is non-com friendly.
