A Christian radio producer picks up the handset a dials a number hoping to connect.  She could hear the calm young voice of a woman answering in Arabic.  Enclosed within the four walls of her home in a remote desert village, the mobile phone is her only contact with the outside world.

“I have given my heart to Jesus,” she declares with marked assurance.  “Please pray for me.”

The woman explains how she first heard and understood the gospel on the radio and then came to a real and living faith – one that stands up to persecution.  Since she put her trust in Christ, her parents have forced her to live an increasingly secluded life, locking her in her room for most of her days.

“Perhaps one day I will be able to visit these people you have told me about and receive a Bible,” as the woman ends the conversation with a note of longing in her voice.

We will need to pray for people who are exactly in the same place.

In a surprising way, modern communication networks, such as mobile phones and the Internet are creating unique opportunities for reaching out to people in previously inaccessible places.  Third and now fourth generation technology in the form of high-speed mobile multimedia is rapidly taking hold in the Arabian Peninsula.  In some areas, nine out of ten people possess a mobile phone and students spend up to eight hours a day surfing and chatting on the Internet.

We believe that God is in the process of creating springs in the spiritual desert of the Arabian Peninsula.  Pray that radio may continue to play such an important part and may reach the people it needs to reach and that we may be faithful.

About evanlaar1922

Have you ever noticed how many special ways God refers to us, His dear children? He calls us His beloved sons and daughters, the righteous, children of the kingdom, His anointed, royal priesthood, the faithful in Christ, His temple, His friends, and so many other loving names that speaks to who we are in Him. Also in many cases, the names we are given at birth have both biblical and heavenly identities tied into them. Our Heavenly Father who watches over us daily has created the ideal path for each of us to take to travel the journey of life, just as a father will make plans for his own child by putting things in place at a very early age for education, health, graduation, and marriage. God has predestined and equipped each of us to carry out a specific purpose that will create the design He desires to be in place for His kingdom to be effective in the earth.
