Radio Broadcast

Because our partners cared, this year, Master’ Foundation undertook the support of another weekly radio broadcast from the city of Ivano-Frankivsk reaching out to approximately two million people in the Carpathian/south western Ukraine region. Now with the three broadcasts, the Gospel is being proclaimed weekly to a potential listening audience of over 6.5 million people. Pray with us that as His word goes out, it will not not return void, but accomplish and prosper for what it was sent!

From Our Radio Pastor

Dear Brother Stan,

I want to share about the radio broadcasting we do here in Ukraine. Last year was really a blessed year. We received many phone calls from people who are listening to both of our programs. As a result many people who listen to the programs come to our church. And some even come from remote villages (many kilometers away) to visit our church.

At the end of December many people phoned thanking us for the radio programs. They are mainly senior homebound people that are not able to attend church. One lady phoned saying that when she listens to her orthodox priest she cannot understand a thing, but the way we preach is so clearly understood by the listeners.

A few blind people phoned asking us not to stop broadcasting because the program brings great delight and comfort to them and is a light unto their souls. Yesterday I visited one village for a service and people approached me to thank us for giving them this wonderful opportunity to listen and be strengthened by the Word of God through the broadcasts.

We also hear much good reports about RADIO FM which now reaches one million people as it extends beyond the city of Lutsk. Our youth prepare the radio broadcasts for FM as many young people listen to the FM station. One recent theme we had on the broadcast was on fortune telling and horoscopes. Many young people were touched by that broadcast because our youth in Ukraine are very much involved into fortune telling, witchcraft and horoscopes. After listening to the program one young man sent us a message asking to help him to be freed from demonic powers. On one program we spoke about health issues and the people were especially interested as the host speaker was our Christian Doctor.

We also had a topic on purity. We invited a young Christian girl who was Miss Ukraine in 2010. She shared how she is keeping herself in purity for her husband. There were many phone calls asking how this was possible. The answer was that everything is possible in Christ who gives us strength to do so.

So we are happy to work for the glory of God and as the Bible says we are to do. We would not be able to do it without your financial support, prayer and God's power. For 2011 we are planning to broadcast our radio programs on the internet. We already tried it and see that it works.

We are thankful to you and your people for helping us to broadcast the good news in our nation. May God continue to help and bless you for your helping us reach people with His message of salvation.
