Encouragement at an Engagement

Kathrine

Kathrine is a radio listener but rarely listens. But one day she heard the Voz Crista program in the prayer segment she was touched. Finally, we met on Facebook. Long story short, she asked me to attend her engagement ceremony and asked me to convey a short Verse of God’s Word and lead the prayer at their engagement event.

While delivering God’s Word, the two big families thought that I was a catholic priest and they asked me who I really was. And I introduced myself that I was a Radio Voz announcer and introduced Radio Voz to the two families. The thing that made them curious was when I led the prayer, which was very different from the prayer that is often said in the Catholic church. Praise God the engagement event went smoothly with a distinct and meaningful spiritual scent.

Blessed by God’s Word

Estanislau

Estanislau is an avid listener of Radio Voz from the district of Ermera. One day Estanislau stopped me in the middle of the road while I was cycling, he recognized me because I was wearing a Radio Voz t-shirt. He introduced himself to me and told me that he faithfully listened to Radio Voz and that he felt very blessed by the presentation of God’s Word. At the end of the introduction I invited him to have something to eat with me, so we ate meatballs on the beach and I prayed for him.

Estanislau is familiar with one of our church members, Alvaro, who is also a listener of Radio Voz, he will be connecting with him to help nurture him in his relationship with God and invite him to church.

Encouragement at a Time of Loss

TWFT Jan-Jun2022

Greetings

We are 4 family members including me, my brother, sister, and brother.

My family and I got to know Jesus as a Savior because of my mother. That is why we are so happy to have the opportunity to know God when we are young. One day a very sad time came while we were constantly growing in the Lord and that time is the month of September 2019. My family and I were saddened by the loss of my mother. At the same time, we lost Baba in 8 months. Within a year of losing my parents, we were unable to cope, remembering the dire situation for me and my family. At the same time, my spiritual sister Sunita Mahat started sending daily word of worship today through messenger.

Then I began to listen to the daily worship from today’s Word  (The Word for Today) and began to be blessed day by day. This short and meaningful word of God’s encouragement and drawer closer to God helps me to fight the situation .

Finally, I would like to thank God again and Message of Hope Nepal .

A young man checks out Laef FM after seeing the poster

We have recently been able to get our Honiara station back operating at full power. Here is an update from our Board Chairman Coxwain. He writes….

Thank God for His grace and faithfulness!

There are key people (leaders), who already locked into the Laef FM 93.5 as regular and keen listeners, even before the 300watts transmitter was installed.

On Thursday morning, after Bible Society board meeting, I asked an Anglican prominent leader if he tried Laef FM 93.5, to my surprise, he answered me plainly. “I am a regular listener of the station.” and he asked if I have posters that he could put up on the Church notice board. Yesterday afternoon, I brought him 3 A4 posters. He was very pleased.

Another Church leader, a Finance & Administration manager of SIBC told me that he is a regular listener of Laef FM 93.5. He tuned in the mornings and in the evenings listening to the messages each day.

The Director Of Finance Intelligent Unit of CBSI told me Tuesday previous week that he is a keen and regular listener to Laef FM 93.5. He strongly recommended that God’s Word must go out to people in various forms. I gave him 5 sample Car Stickers that day. He has 5 vehicles. Two land cruisers, two buses and a private car. He uses 4 vehicles as public transportation. He promotes the station through his vehicles.
Not only that but last week, I gave him 5 A4 Laef FM posters at his office. He is very happy with this and said that he will distribute 4 posters to his subordinates to promote Laef FM 93.5 in their respective areas and will use 1 at his own shop.

Taxi drivers are also faithful promoters of Laef FM 93.5. When the station is off air, they call and remind us about it.

Hopefully, many more people will be become regular and faithful listeners of Laef FM in the coming weeks and months ahead as the Lord touches their hearts. I believe, many people, in the eastern & central side of town are slowly tuning into Laef FM.
Regards,
Coxwain

Inspiration for you from…

Make Things Right With God

‘Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He shall lift you up.’ James 4:10 KJV

In the Old Testament, the priests were consecrated to God by blood marked on their right ear lobe, their right thumb, and the big toe of their right foot. That meant they were called to honour God in their hearing, their skills, and their daily walk. You can’t just do your own thing; you’re called to walk according to God’s Word. When you don’t, God will call you to repentance. And if you don’t repent, He will discipline you. ‘Do not make light of the Lord’s discipline, and do not lose heart when He rebukes you, because the Lord disciplines the one He loves.’ (Hebrews 12:5–6 NIV) Note two important phrases:

(1) ‘Do not make light of the Lord’s discipline.’ Your ‘Nobody’s-going-to-tell-me-what-to-do!’ attitude will rob you of God’s best and prevent Him from using you effectively. ‘God opposes the proud, but shows favour to the humble.’ (James 4:6 NIV)

(2) ‘Do not lose heart when He rebukes you.’ Instead of seeing God’s correction as rejection, see it as proof that you’re His child… that He has a plan for your life… and that it begins when you humble yourself and do what He tells you. God’s patience is amazing—but He won’t wait forever. He said of Jezebel, ‘I gave her time to repent… and she did not… I will cast her into a sickbed.’ (Revelation 2:21–22 NKJV) On the other hand, when Ahab, Jezebel’s wicked husband, humbled himself, God healed and restored him. Humbling yourself before God will turn things around in your life when nothing else will work. So, the word for today is: make things right with God!

SoulFood: Judges 7:1–9:33, Luke 13:18–35, Ps 119:65–72, Pr 17:23–26
