From the very first day Madagascar World Voice was on the air,
our office began receiving emails and letters thanking us for
the program. Just a few samples:
From Russia: It has
happened! The Lord has heard our prayers and after many
difficulties and obstacles, His word sounds through our
shortwave receivers, coming from Alaska and the remote island in
the Indian Ocean. I am listening to your broadcast and it feels
good in my soul. . . . I really like the songs you include in
your programs. . . . Thank you for your work. God bless you!
He will show you the right way!
From Chile: I am very grateful that the signals reach
far into Latin America . . .
These antenna wires
are carrying broadcasts around the world.
From Germany: Hello dear World Christian radio team: I
have been listening to your Arabic language program beaming
to Egypt and the Near East. I am in wonder at the excellent
reception quality over here in Central Europe.
From Algeria: I am very pleased to send you my reception
report and I thank you for all the radio programs you offer,
which I benefitted from very much.
From Norway: Great to receive this station! The
transmission to Egypt was received very well here in Norway,
so the signal in your target area Egypt must be very good!
I am happy that you reach out that well.
From India: I got the opportunity to listen to you
quite clearly and recorded the whole broadcast. . . . I love
to attend your programming on the air as they are the best
source of knowledge, wisdom, faith in the Almighty and
entertainment. To me, Madagascar World Voice is the best
source of knowledge about the Supreme Authority and the
savior Jesus Christ.
From Sweden: I am very pleased to inform you that I have
been able to catch your signal, loud and clear, earlier this
evening, Sunday, March 27.
From United Arab Emirates: After years of announcements
regarding the launch of a new station from Madagascar, it
was finally great to hear your station broadcasting in
English at 1800 UTC. . . . I was also able to listen to the
Russian broadcast of your station.
And that is but a sample of the letters we’ve received. We
are amazed—gratefully amazed—at the scope of the signal
emanating both from Madagascar World Voice and also from KNLS in
Alaska. Between the two, virtually anybody in the world who has
a shortwave radio can listen to “the music to love, news to
know, and a message to live.” All praise goes to God who has
made this around-the-world transmission possible!!
It’s good news! Almost too good to be true! But it is true: on Easter Sunday our new station in Madagascar began broadcasting throughout the world. Now programs from our two stations—KNLS in Alaska and MWV in Madagascar—cover the entire inhabited world. Almost immediately we began receiving emails and letters from people in dozens of countries.

STANDING ON THE SHOULDERS OF OTHERS
The Ministry of Finance in Germany has issued a new postage stamp
commemorating the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. The stamp
shows a small section of Matthew 27 with annotations from Martin
Luther, the reformer who first translated the Bible into the German
This stamp is one of the many initiatives in Germany
commemorating the start of the Protestant Reformation in 1517. The
stamp is called “The Bible according to the translation of Martin
Who would have thought that one man’s passion—translating the
Bible so that his own people could understand it—would result in an
enormous industry of Bible translation and publication 500 years
later? It’s just another reminder that we are all standing on the
shoulders of others who have gone before.
Who would have thought that another man’s (Guglielmo Marconi)
passion—pioneering research into long distance radio waves—would
result in two stations that would broadcast the Gospel of Jesus
throughout the world? From just two stations, in Alaska and in
Madagascar, come shortwave signals that blanket the entire world.
From every continent come letters and emails telling us how much
our listeners are profiting from the Christian messages sent by KNLS
in Alaska and MWV in Madagascar.
Can you help get the word out? Financial help from you and
people like you makes all the difference. Thank you!!
