The Latest News From Madagascar

 

Madagascar World Voice is ready to go on the air when the two 100,000 watt transmitters are shipped from Houston.  Three 40 foot containers are sitting on the dock ready to be loaded onto a ship going to Madagascar.  We have all the documentation and signatures that we need to do business there.  The shipment will be leaving very soon.  God’s timing is always perfect. 

 

Potential Daily Listening Audience

 

Three billion shortwave radios exist in the world.  Studies show that at any given time throughout the day, 1 billion shortwave radios are turned on with an average of three people listening.  This means that at any given time during the day, we could have a potential listening audience of 3 billion people.

  • Over 1 billion people speak Mandarin Chinese.  Daily broadcasts and a very busy Chinese website provide messages of hope and salvation to interested Chinese listeners scattered all over the world (China, Africa, North and South America and Southeast Asia).

  • More than 280 million people worldwide know the Russian language.  Regular contacts come to us from Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Germany, India, Mexico, Finland and other countries of the world.  Many Russian people find us by viewing our Russian website.

  • Arabic is the 6th most common language in the world.  It is the official language in 27 countries.  The 10/40 window of northern Africa and the Middle East is home to 90% of the world’s unchurched people.  Our focus from Madagascar will be this vast area.

  • Four hundred million Spanish-speaking people live throughout most countries of the world.  From voiced programs and website contacts, we receive 1,500 requests from our Spanish listeners every year for Bible correspondence courses and other spiritual guidance.

  • We have many hours of programming ready for Africa from the new station in Madagascar.  English for Africa will reach a great majority of African people with programs like, “Ask the Doctor”, “Paths to a Happy Home”, and interviews with people who “Make a Difference”.

  • English programming from Alaska has been broadcast daily for almost 32 years.  We appreciate many listeners from Japan, Australia, India, New Zealand, and the Philippines.  More people in China are taking English classes than there are people in America.       

The World Is Listening

 

We have websites for most of our language services.  Over the last 12 months, there have been over 5.4 million hits on our 5 websites.  Recently on the Chinese search engine, baidu.com, (Chinese equivalent of Google), when we typed in Christian radio station, our Alaska station, KNLS, was the first one mentioned.  Over 900 Muslims have been baptized into Christ in the country of Morocco by a brother who first heard the Gospel over KNLS. To God be the glory for these and many other responses to the gospel.    

 

The programming is ready to begin English for Africa programming.

Our second Medical Missions trip to Madagascar just occurred, and it was very successful.
