Through Medical Missions, The Tide® Ministry Meets Physical and Spiritual Needs in India

The Tide® global radio ministry is helping to meet both the physical and spiritual needs of those seeking peace, healing and redemption in India through its medical missions program.

The Tide ministry is partnering with local doctors and other medical staff to reach out to new believers by helping the people of remote villages who would not otherwise have access to medical care. Hundreds have expressed their gratitude for the care they received from The Tide ministry and their partners. And the “boots on the ground” remark that they are the ones to receive the blessings by serving both the physical and spiritual needs of the people in India.

“Even though our ultimate desire is to communicate the Gospel of Jesus and the freedom and healing that a life in Christ can bring, we can reach so many by showing our love and concern by offering just a few simple remedies,” said The Tide Executive Director Don Shenk. “So many of their symptoms are what we call ‘common,’ but for the people of remote Indian villages to find relief from a stranger is so valuable and such a witness.”

In addition to producing global Gospel radio programming in 23 heart languages around the world, The Tide ministry gives radios to people in remote villages in Africa and Asia so they can listen to the programs. Thousands of generous people across the United States have enabled The Tide radio programs to thrive and expand into even more countries through the “Sponsor a Radio” program that helps further projects like The Tide ministry’s Radios for Nigeria and Radios for India. Details on The Tide “Sponsor a Radio” program can be found at

This Wednesday, Aug. 5, The Tide ministry will be a part of Missions Day at Roxbury Holiness Camp in Orrstown, Pa. For details, visit

The Tide ministry is also planning its annual promotional dinners for September, where attendees can learn more about its areas of service and ways to spread the Gospel to all corners of the world. Events in Pennsylvania are planned for Mechanicsburg, Chambersburg, Lancaster, Souderton and Mifflintown. For more information, visit
