While the need is great and the challenges significant, we praise God for the many Gospel initiatives that are being undertaken across Poland. One such ministry is Radio Voice of the Gospel – a long-standing partner of SGA which aims to reach people with the Gospel by means of radio and other forms of media.
A favourite saying of those involved is “History is the language of our hearts. Media is the language of our time. We use both to tell people about Jesus.”
God has been enabling them to fulfil this aim. Henryk Dedo, one of the leaders of Radio Voice of the Gospel explains how the Lord has expanded and blessed this ministry over the years.
"In 1983 when I joined, we were only able to broadcast on shortwave radios. That limited our reach and audience. However, today we are broadcasting our material on 59 FM radio stations. These include commercial stations, government stations and prison stations… About 20 years ago we started a partnership with the Polish national station. It is the equivalent of the BBC in Great Britain and presently through the year, we have 40–60 of our programmes broadcast in the biggest radio station in the country. In addition to traditional radio, we are finding a growing audience on the internet. Over 6,000 people each week listen to some of our programmes on our website. We are thankful that sometimes God surprises us with the opportunities He gives us."
