We headed to South Bend, IN, to bring hope to Africa. "How did that happen?" you ask. Well, we spent a day and a half at Pulse FM, dedicated to providing SonSet radios for one of the poorest countries in the world, Lesotho, Africa. That's the same station we helped a couple weeks earlier in a fundraising event in Arizona.
If you read my last post, you remember the situation in Lesotho ... a 70% employment rate. On top of that, 40% of the people have HIV/AIDS. And the lifespan is just 36 years.
In that setting, Harvest FM broadcasts the hope and love of Jesus Christ throughout much of that country. Harvest FM is a lifeline for tens of thousands of people. It's not just a radio station. The staff below holds a torch for a ministry event they were part of.
Most people in the remote areas of the country cannot even afford a radio. And if they have one, they can't afford batteries. On top of that, there is no electricity in these remote areas.
That's why the solar-powered SonSet radio is so important to these people. It's a "little missionary." Every SonSet sent to Lesotho will be fix-tuned to Harvest FM.
As a result of the day-and-a-half fundraiser on Pulse FM, listeners called in to fund 300 SonSet radios! With the radios raised in Arizona, that makes 400 radios going to Harvest FM.
Thank you for your prayers and support, enabling Noonie and me to serve God and reach the unreached with the gospel.
