Persecuted Minorities Across South East Asia
“The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field.”
Our Easter appeal this year is raising funds to give the nations of Southeast Asia opportunities to discover this treasure: that the kingdom of heaven is open to all peoples because of the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Millions of people across the region need this treasure, and you can tell them where to find it!
Since the days of Mao Tse Tung, through the decades and across China, Vietnam, Laos, Thailand, and Myanmar, our broadcasts have strengthened and equipped peoples to trust in God and live in hope and faith. Such programmes comfort and encourage the persecuted, and challenge the abusers!
Your support of Persecuted Ethnic Minorities ensures that programmes in numerous languages go out across the nations. New Zealand is especially focusing on the Hmong, the Jarai, the Koho, the Rade, the Bahna, and the Sedang people groups. For some language groups our programmes are the only place they can hear their own language on the media!
Our broadcasts are aired by FM, shortwave, and distributed on MP3 players called “Speakerboxes.” MicroSD cards can contain hundreds of hours of teaching, encouragement and hope.
Programmes are a vital source of Biblical input on a wide range of subjects including spirituality, marriage and relationships, Youth issues, leadership, healthcare, agriculture, and Bible teaching. Programmes have served a vital role in correcting heresies, and building up the church where there are often no trained pastors for large populations of believers.
You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
