For prayer and information:
While many are struggling to get on the ground in Myanmar and China to respond to the recent catastrophes, HCJB Global Voice has been faithfully reaching these two countries via shortwave radio. The missionâ€™s ongoing media efforts are focused on reaching those beyond the reach of traditional ministry opportunities.
Broadcasts in the Rawang language, spoken by more than 140,000 people in Myanmar, began airing from HCJB Global-Australiaâ€™s shortwave station in Kununurra in 2007. Two half-hour programmes in this language air daily – one slot in the morning and one in the afternoon.
A voice of hope is also going into China as the Australian station broadcasts 18 hours of Mandarin programming each week. An additional five hours of weekly programming airs in Fujian, and 10.5 hours of English programming reaches China. The latter broadcasts are designed to help Chinese listeners learn English as a second language while presenting a clear gospel message.
HCJB Global has been reaching out to listeners with the claims of Christ for more than 75 years via short-wave radio, local FM radio and now satellite radio and the Internet. We partner with churches and missions around the world to help them fulfil Christ’s Great Commission through media and medical ministries.
In Britain, rather than focus on the traditional world of Christian radio, HCJB Global (UK) has a passion to reach those outside the church who listen to mainstream radio stations. To achieve this we use the name ‘Whistling Frog Productions’ – placing our own award-winning radio material on local commercial stations, resourcing Christians already working in the radio industry and offering quality training to aspiring Christian broadcasters. HCJB Global (UK) also runs AUDIOPOT (www.audiopot.org) the UK’s on-line library of creative Christian audio. This popular website offers free access to over 1900 MP3 files of thoughts, interviews and features – easy to search and perfect for illustrating talks, starting discussions in the classroom or playing on local radio.
