Hundreds of Lives Changed, as The Tide® Radio Programs Reach Albanian Listeners

Just over a year ago, The Tide® global radio ministry launched radio programming in the predominantly-Muslim country of Albania. Now, the fruits of those labors are paying off, as hundreds of lives are being changed through the messages of Jesus Christ. 

“We have been so blessed to see lives touched by the gospel of Jesus Christ in Albania,” said The Tide Director Don Shenk. “But although progress is being made in this nation, where nearly 60 percent adhere to the tenets of Islam, there is much work to be done. We can never rest until all hear the good news of the saving grace of Jesus.”

One of those changed lives is Xhulio, a Christian in Albania, who said The Tide radio programs are a great help to his faith. He also encouraged his mother, who is not a Christian, to listen by giving her a radio. Now she listens all the time, and he said, “God is using this small tool to bless my mom, and now she is more open to hearing about God. I was happy because one day she asked me to pray for her at church. God is good!”

In Albania, families can hear The Tide gospel programs, which are broadcast to the people there in partnership with Radio 7, a Christian radio network in Albania and Kosovo. Thanks to generous people who give just $40, a radio is provided in areas around the world so others can listen to programming in the language they were born to speak.

With almost a quarter of the world’s population living within the current range of The Tide radio programming, and nearly 7,000 languages spoken in the world today, the opportunities are tremendous.

The Tide ministry’s vision for 2016 includes:

  • Add another day of programming in the Albanian language
  • Implement the Isaan language in Thailand
  • See the completion of a new studio in Zimbabwe
  • Establish a church planter in Bangladesh
  • Welcome a discipleship worker among the Tharu in Nepal
  • Initiate a Telugu language radio program in India
