“Though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds” (2 Cor. 10:3-4 NIV). We are calling on all prayer warriors to join us in interceding for the safe and speedy delivery of specific shipments of radios to some parts of the world where the message of God’s hope is needed the most!
A shipment of 800 radios was sent to Rwanda in July of 2023 and has been held in customs since it arrived despite supplying multiple copies of documents. Recently the shipment’s status was updated to “clearance processing completed.” We are still awaiting word if the shipment has been delivered to the partner, Restore FM. Restore FM was started in 2005, and today with the help of Pastor Joseph Karasanyi, has resulted in 80 churches being planted in Rwanda and another 55 in Congo. This shipment of radios will be delivered to a large refugee camp. We know that God will work powerfully as His gospel message is introduced to individuals and families who have lost everything.
On the contrary, there are some battles that are being won, with radios shipped to Uganda and Peru passing through customs without delay and arriving very quickly. However, other shipments need your prayers. There will be 480 radios sent to another partner, One Love Radio in Zambia soon. We also have shipments going to Burkina Faso, Ukraine, Peru, Haiti, Mali, and Lesotho hopefully before the year ends. Please join us in prayer for these shipments, that God will go before them working out all the details and preparing the hearts of those He has chosen to hear His message of salvation.
