New Languages added to Broadcast Schedule

Friday, 24 March 2017

Reach Beyond Australia is constantly seeking ways to better serve listeners who have no or little access to the gospel in the South East Asia region. Our programming features a handful of languages spoken by people groups notably hungry for the message of salvation. Our new schedule of programs – also known as A17 – is now out. And it marks the beginning of an extended outreach to India and Myanmar with the addition of programs in the Nagamese and Matu languages.

Nagamese is widely spoken in Nagaland, a state in India’s North East, and among some remote villages of Myanmar, just across the border. Matu, in turn, is one of the languages of the Chin state of Myanmar. Two independent media ministries are coming alongside Reach Beyond in the task to make the gospel more available to those audiences. We strongly believe that the new broadcast services into India and Myanmar will impact many.

While expanding broadcast hours into South East Asia’s audiences, the A17 Schedule will also mark the end of our services for China. We praise God for the extensive shortwave Christian programming into that country being delivered daily by our friends in ministry TWR and FEBC. That will allow us to strengthen our focus on new audiences such as those within India and Myanmar. We are looking forward to this new broadcasting season and the fruit the programs will bear. As we all know, the word of God, when sent out, “never returns empty”.
