2018 could very well be our most exciting year yet.
Pray for the three brand-new stations in Ukraine—a critical foothold to bring hope to millions of war-torn people, as well as opportunities for further expansion of Gospel programming. In the capital city of Kiev, work is underway to create a new Evangelism Center that will expand our broadcasts to reach 43 million souls. In this Evangelism Center local staff can create engaging Gospel content for all 5 of our stations in Ukraine. The local governments have not only embraced FEBC content, but in many places have requested we establish even more towers in other cities so our messages of finding hope in Jesus Christ will reach even more people. Praise the Lord!
Pray for this new opportunity to reach North Korea with the Gospel. Land has been gifted to FEBC in South Korea…this land is located in just the right place, where we can build a radio station so powerful that our broadcasts will be heard across the entire country of North Korea. Yes, this outreach is incredibly ambitious, and we estimate our costs will surpass $6 million over the next year. But first things first, we ask that you would pray that we can break ground and get the radio tower started.
Over 6 million Mongolians live in the Inner Mongolia region of China, which is double the number of Mongolians living in the country of Mongolia! Pray for a new opportunity we have to reach these people, who are still isolated from God’s word and have had limited access to our Gospel programming in their own language.
Pray for our new Talas station that is set to launch in the coming months, as well as plans to launch another brand-new station in this culturally Muslim nation. The new station would be located either in Osh, the capital and biggest city in the south of Kyrgyzstan; or in Naryn, located near the center of the country and considered by many to be the cultural capital of Kyrgyzstan.
Because of security risks, we can’t even mention the name of the country, but authorities in this nation are applying new pressures and restrictions on Christians and churches. New laws will go into effect, which stipulates that day-to-day activities of local churches must be registered with the government one year in advance. In addition, changes in church leadership at all levels must be pre-approved in an effort to return people to the tradition of ancestor worship and stymie evangelism. But where there is persecution, we feel called to work even harder to share the Gospel. Pray that we can provide more avenues to hear and share the Good News!
This is the estimate of how many people are within reach of FEBC’s broadcasts. But millions are just waiting for a device to use to tune in. Pray for our distribution of radios, speaker boxes and cell phone chips as we hope to reach nearly half a million new listeners this year.
