Night radio reaches people!

Early hours in Mubende Uganda; 15 million listeners and encouraging feedback.

In January 2013, I was speaking with my fellow pastor on the Ugandan Christian night radio for the third time. In the early hours of the morning (between 3 and 6 am) the program is broadcast to 25 million listeners throughout western Uganda, Congo, Rwanda and Tanzania.

Wednesday’s regular program reaches one million people. After our broadcast, 20 calls flooded the phone lines and seven people made the decision to give their lives to Jesus. One of the calls came from Kigali, the capital of neighbouring country Rwanda.

GNN Finland supports RadioHeart 102.3 FM programs and its occasional Radio Conferences.

Good news in Africa!

During my first visit to Mubende in 2011, pastor John Magabe had requested us to speak on the local night radio. To our surprise he abruptly woke us up at 2 am and told that we need to be ready at the radio station by 3 am.

At first I felt like my thoughts were not flowing but then I closed my eyes, started focusing on the listeners and poured out my innermost thoughts. The next thing I knew, I was being tapped on my shoulder to close the session.

Immediately following the broadcast, the radio station was flooded with phone calls. There were calls even from the neighbouring countries; some people wanted to give their lives to Jesus, others were facing illness or needed prayer for problems within their families.

None of us felt like sleeping after that! We prayed fervently on behalf of all these various needs. The RadioHeart 102.3 FM listener survey confirms that the message really reaches people and that prayers are answered!
