NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The new president of HCJB Global says
the Christian radio ministry now has an estimated 7 million
mostly-Muslim listeners in North Africa and the Middle East.
Wayne Pederson says the Arab world is full of "lost people that need Jesus, and they're getting tired of a message of hate and are looking for a message of love."
He says that through HCJB radio broadcasts, the gospel is penetrating Muslim societies -- so much so that entire households, and in come cases entire villages, are converting to Christianity.
In some parts of the world, Pederson says HCJB Global also offers health care so it can minister to its listeners' physical as well as spiritual needs.
