Voice of Hope Radio Dedicated in Liberia

FM 100.7 reaching out to 1.3 million+ potential listeners


August 26th was a milestone day in Liberia. FM 100.7, the Voice of Hope radio was officially dedicated in Monrovia, the capital city!

Crowd gathered for the official ribbon cutting ceremony
included Liberia AG national leader Jimmy Kuoh
Following several years of planning and preparation, the station began test broadcasting last February that expanded to 5 hours on the air each evening. As more of the volunteer staff has gained experience, local program production expanded and audience response increased, more broadcast hours have been added. Currently, the VOH is on the air 10 hours each day! They are praying for finances to purchase the diesel fuel required to generate power for additional daily transmission.
 
Henry training Voice of Hope staff
I’ve had the privilege of being a part of the team working on this project over the last 3 years. It is a joy to see it go from vision to reality. In February, I spent several weeks in Liberia training the new station’s announcers and staff. Now, the VOH is proclaiming a message of God’s love to a potential audience of more than a million people every day. It is sharing hope across Monrovia and as far as 100 kilometers away, even into the neighboring nation of Sierra Leone. Praise God!
 
Thank you for your partnership that helped make this project possible. Please continue to pray for the Voice of Hope station that:
·      Staff will grow in their capabilities to develop and present quality content
·      Strong community and church partnerships will be forged with the station
·      Finances will be available to cover operational costs and expand on air hours
·      Listeners will be impacted and life’s changed for God’s glory through the broadcasts

    Updates  

 
IMM recently completed production of the Open the Bible: Gospels series in Sinhalese, the primary language of Sri Lanka. The four, thirty minute programs are a highly visual and Biblically accurate introduction to each of the Gospels. They will be used in home churches, study groups, and broadcast in this island nation where less than .5% are evangelical Christians.
Across the Middle East and North Africa, internet use continues to escalate. IMM is partnering with ministries there to share "conversation starter" videos that are featured on websites focused on countries across the region. Hundreds of thousands of people have viewed these dramatic, short videos that engage viewers and cultivate connections.

IMM has invested much time and energy in creating video content for kids. And even in settings where traditional missionary efforts are restricted, often there are opportunities for quality children's programs that promote positive moral values. Now in Albania, a door has opened to air our World of Jonathan Singh TV series for kids on a Muslim-controlled TV station.
Itineration!!! 

We continue to itinerate raising support for our reassignment to IMM. We need your help and we would love to visit your church too! Please contact us.

How You Can Partner In Our Missionary Ministry

Current Supporters: If you already support our ministry, we hope that you will continue to do so and increase your commitment if possible. We would love to provide an update in a service, missions convention, ministry window, Skype interview, video report, personal meeting or any other way you desire. Contact us to schedule a time.
 
Past Supporters: If you supported our ministry in the past but no longer do so, please consider partnering with us again. We know that the economic conditions of recent years have impacted all of us. Many churches and individuals made difficult choices and reduced missions giving. Would you take a step of faith and help us again now? Any monthly pledge or donation will make a difference and be greatly appreciated!
 
Potential Supporters: If you have never been a partner in our missionary work, we need you now more than ever. We understand that there are many appeals and requests for help that come your way. But please consider our proven record of cross-cultural service, demonstrated media expertise, and the strategic possibilities that IMM offers. Your confidence and commitment will help us multiply Good News to our generation!
