Super Bongese – Radio to the Jungles

Praying friends and supporters of the work in Liberia, I wanted to give you a brief update on what is happening with the work in the jungles of West Africa.

The Lord continues to bless the two mission works we were able to start as does the third church plant that was started by the national pastors in an interior village. We are excited to continue hearing of baptisms, of sins being confessed and repented of, and of marriages taking place where people were just living together before.

Many of you know my heart is in teaching and that this is one aspect of the work that I have missed since having to return to the USA due to my health.

While two or three have asked about the possibility of further ministry, the question remained of how we could be involved – that is, until now.

radioMinistry I have been in contact with a brand new community radio station that covers all 12 districts of Bong County where we lived and worked. They have just obtained a 1000 watt transmitter that is reaching out not just to Bong County, but in some of the surrounding counties and even over the border into the country of Guinea.

They have offered me an opportunity to produce teaching and preaching material on the radio in 30 minute increments. One of these would be early morning and late afternoon. This would be one day a week for a total of 4 hours per month reaching the jungle where there is NO Christian radio. The cost per month would be $250.

We already have been provided with the digital equipment and the software needed to make these recordings available to the station which is called Super Bongese FM.

The station has the ability to reach close to 500,000 people. At present, no other churches or religious groups have approached the station to broadcast their teaching.

Please pray with us about this possible endeavor and if you would desire to be involved with the costs involved, please contact me and we will provide further details. There is a great need for solid Biblical teaching and we would like to be able to continue this for the foreseeable future as the Lord provides.
