New WMB Programs, New Radio Partnerships

A new youth oriented radio program will launch on Sunday, April 24, 2005 with the youth of East Timor as its target audience. Airing in the Tetum language, “The Better Solution” will raise issues and problems young people in East Timor face.

The program will feature young people from a local church who will take turns in on-air discussions. In the debut program on Sunday, April 24th, Mateus, Jonio, Adina and Moses will be on the air from 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. tackling their first topic about bad habits and offering better solutions. In this opening segment, Moses will share his testimony about how God helped him to stop drinking alcohol and smoking.

Acy Iodja, Indonesian missionary to East Timor, is the producer of “The Better Solution” and the one who had the vision to involve young people in broadcast ministry. She shared recently with World Mission Broadcast (WMB) Asia-Pacific leadership that “this radio program is a great opportunity for our young people because they can do something new and something that is useful for others. I am excited to see many young people come to the Lord through this program.” Doug Flemming, Regional Communications Coordinator for Asia-Pacific stated that “The Better Solution” will be offering listeners “the better solution” for their lives as the solutions will be based on a solid relationship with the living God.”

East Timor is a young country in Southeastern Asia, northwest of Australia in the Lesser Sunda Islands at the eastern end of the Indonesian archipelago. Having risen out of political/religious oppression and war, East Timor was internationally recognized as an independent state on May 20, 2002.

Acy and her team of teen broadcasters covet your prayers as they reach out to the youth of their community. To keep up with how God is reaching the lost with “The Better Solution” check back on the WMB website for updates from Acy and the WMB Asia-Pacific team.
