Mien Radio WHY ???
JESUS TOLD US TO GO !!
"…Therefore GO and make disciples of all nations…" (Mt.28:19-20)
Mien ARE GOING !!!
Over 50 Mien Christians in America made ministry trips in 1998 to Asia. The Mien in Thailand are reaching out to other Mien in neighboring countries.
HOWEVER "THERE ARE MANY ADVERSARIES."
Direct personal witness is extremely restricted by the authorities in limited access (communist countries). Many Mien in Asia have short wave radios on which they can receive the gospel through radio broadcasts. Thus, there is all the greater urgency for Christian Broadcasts in the Mien language.
The following used by permission of FEBC in La Mirada, California is so to the point:
WHY CHRISTIAN RADIO IS TOUCHING LIVES...
Radio knows no boundaries...
It crosses religious, political, natural and man-made barriers-entering the homes of people who may not be reached in any other way.
Radio is personal...
It speaks to the deepest spiritual needs of each listener.
Radio uses your resources efficiently...
A few dollars pays for one minute of airtime to touch the lives of those living in areas so remote that most have never seen a pastor, teacher or missionary. And the skills of just a few workers can reach thousands who have never heard the name of Jesus.
Mien Radio WHERE ???
THE WHERE OF PRODUCTION:
The radio broadcasts in the Mien language are prepared in Richmond, California and in Chiang Rai and Chiang Mai, Thailand.
THE WHERE OF TRANSMISSION:
The taped broadcasts are sent out from Christian-owned transmitters in Manila and Saipan Island.
THE WHERE OF RECIPIENTS:
There are over 1,000,000 Mien in China, Vietnam, Laos, and Thailand. Over 99% of these Mien are not Christians. Many have never heard of Jesus! But they can now hear the Gospel on their short wave radios.
Mien Radio WHEN ???
Initial discussions about the need for this project began over 20 years ago. The first broadcast went out over the airwaves in March 1995 and every night since then they have been beamed over the mountains and across the rivers to all areas where the Mien live in Southeast Asia. Many of those Mien are illiterate. Many cannot afford to buy postage stamps, but enough have responded that we are encouraged to press on with this project.
The first broadcast comes on at SW 11605 kHz. 25 Mb at 5:30-5:45 PM Thailand time (=3:30-3:45 AM Pacific daylight savings time). The second is at 9795 kHz. 31 Mb at 8:45-9:00 PM in Thailand (=6:45-7:00 AM, Pacific time). An additional 30 minute program will be aired once a week from the island of Saipan soon!
Mien Radio WHO ???
A young Mien lady in Thailand has been producing these broadcasts almost single-handedly from the beginning. She is very anxious to have more help from the Mien in America. Many have contributed testimonies, songs, chants, etc.
Now a Mien Christian leader is the program producer in the U.S. Many others are working with him toward the preparation of the broadcasts.
PLEASE PRAY !!!
We value and need your prayers for the ongoing and expansion of this project. We hope to increase each program to at least 30 minutes in length. Pray too that the financial needs may be met.
