Listeners of The Tide® Radio Ministry Share Inspiring Stories of Life Change
The Tide Global Radio Ministry Has Shared the Hope of Christ for Nearly 40 Years with Millions of Potential New Believers in India
HARRISBURG, Pa.—For nearly 40 years, The Tide® (www.thetide.org) global radio ministry has been sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with millions of potential listeners in India. And God’s power has brought peace and transformation to this populous Hindu nation, as well as to others around the world.
The Tide ministry regularly hears from listeners whose lives have been changed by the Gospel.
“Our hearts sing when we hear about the true life change of listeners after they hear The Tide Gospel programming,” said The Tide Director Don Shenk. “It is by these testimonies that we know God is moving throughout the world to bring more souls into communion with Him. But even as we hear this uplifting news of more who have accepted Christ as their savior, we pray for our new brothers and sisters in Christ as well, because we know that having faith in Jesus in other countries can certainly come at a cost.”
One listener who heard The Tide ministry’s program in India wrote, “Through your radio program I get peace, joy and encouragement in my personal life. Your program broadcasting in my language is a blessed program and helps me to grow in the Lord.”
Another listener shared, “Every Saturday evening I go to my friend’s house and listen to the radio program. I have given my life to the Lord. Please send me your Bible lesson and literature and help me know more about Jesus Christ.”
And still another remarked, “My heart is filled with joy that my life has been changed totally by listening to your radio program. … Thanks for sharing the love of God with me and others through the radio.”
Christians make up just 2.5 percent of the population in India, so The Tide ministry’s presence there remains crucial. In fact, with almost a quarter of the world’s population living within the current range of The Tide radio programming, and nearly 7,000 languages spoken in the world today, the opportunities are tremendous.
Since 1978, The Tide ministry has been sharing the Gospel in India and produces radio programming in eight languages there—and in 24 languages worldwide.
Later this year, The Tide ministry will offer programming in its 25th heart language—Isaan, spoken by 19 million people in Thailand. That initiative will allow Thailand to join multiple regions of Zimbabwe, India, Nigeria, Nepal, Bhutan, Albania and Kosovo, where The Tide ministry is already active in broadcasting Gospel radio programming.
