Over one billion people
speak Mandarin Chinese! Not only are we teaching those who live
in China, we are reaching Chinese people who live in Africa,
Europe, North and South America as well as throughout Southeast Asia.
House churches in China use our material in their Bible classes.
Over 2 million hits occurred on our Chinese website this past
year. Edward Short and Edward Ho talk to millions of
Chinese listeners every day.
Although our Russian programming
has the eastern part of Russia as a target, due to good conditions in
the ionosphere our Russian broadcasts can be heard often anywhere in the
world. More than 280 million people worldwide know the Russian
language. We have regular contacts not only from Russia
but also from Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Germany, India, Mexico and
Finland. Each month more than 3,000 unique visitors
connect with us on the Russian website.
Along the Pacific Rim for the
last 30 years, English programming has been received by a large portion
of more than three billion shortwave radios that are in the world.
We have listeners in the Philippines, Japan, Australia, India,
Pakistan and New Zealand. More people in China are taking
English classes than there are people in America. You can hear our
daily programs by going to our website:
Four hundred million
Spanish-speaking people live throughout most countries of the world.
Rex Morgan, Senior Producer for Latin America, contacts thousands
of people every day with his radio, television, DVDs,
conferences, and website outreaches. Requests for World Bible School
courses are more than 125 per month from Cuba alone. From
Manhattan, New York, to Central and South America, Latin Americans are
using his material for Sunday lessons.
Arabic is the 6th
most common language in the world. It is the official
language of 27 countries. It is spoken by about 400
million people. With 66% of those who speak Arabic being
under the age of 25, we have an exciting opportunity to impact a
large segment of the Middle East. We have recently added some short
Bible studies, prayers and Bible readings in the Egyptian,
Tunisian and Syrian dialects. The 10/40 window of northern
Africa and the Middle East will be a focus for our 2014 outreach.
The programming is ready to begin
English for Africa programming. Please pray that we will be able to add
Portuguese and Korean programming. Another Medical Missions trip to
Madagascar is planned for this year as well
