“If the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.” John 8:36
To you, it’s just a radio. To them, it’s a lifeline.
Less than 10% of the people in Burkina Faso, Guinea-Bissau and Lesotho have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ – and many more people have never even heard the gospel. You can give them a chance to hear the Good News through one of the most unique mission’s tool available — the SonSet® Radio.
You can come alongside these believers by providing SonSet® Radios, meeting an urgent need. These radios are solar-powered and fixed-tuned to a community station run by local believers. As each station signs on the air, we can give these radios away to people in the community and bring them new life.
Through the messages from the partners’ radio stations, listeners learn about the Good News of Jesus Christ and hear programs about family relationships and healthcare. In countries where unclean water and disease are major threats, these radios can make an impact physically as well as spiritually.
Prostitutes Turn Their Lives Around After Receiving a Radio
Lesotho – Harvest FM
A group of prostitutes, who thought they were totally rejected by society, was "thrilled and overjoyed" to receive a fixed-tuned radio. One of the programs that was being broadcast at the time gave listeners an opportunity to phone in and pray on air for the "street ladies" who were receiving the radios. Four of these girls were convicted and made commitments to the Lord. As a result of this station’s project, the government has now offered to establish a "job creation" project, as they work alongside our partner Harvest FM, to encourage and assist these girls.
Woman’s Life Transformed in Burkina Faso
Burkina Faso – RED Network
One Saturday morning, Etienne Kiemde came to the RED station in Burkina Faso when he heard a knock on the door. An elderly woman was standing outside and wanted to speak with him. She had been given a fixed-tuned radio from the station, and she told Etienne that after receiving it, many things had changed in her life. The radio had become her source of comfort, and through the station’s programs, her life had been renewed. That bitterness which she had in her heart was gone. God had intervened in her life and she had accepted Christ as her Savior!!
She also said that she was sharing her faith with her neighbors. Living all alone with her small son, she invited neighbors from time to time to come to listen to what this small radio said of the good news!
But the woman was very sad because her radio had broken, and she had come to see if the station could repair it. “I gave her another receiver while recovering the old one,” Etienne said. “What joy could one see on her face!”
According to Etienne, the testimonies that come to the RED station are “enriching and give us courage to persevere in the proclamation of this Christian hope which is in Jesus Christ.”
For many people in Africa, life seems to offer them little hope. But you can give them hope simply by giving them a radio and the opportunity to hear the gospel.
