Even though Zimbabwe has been fairly extensively evangelized there are still many who need to hear the gospel message.

In 1983 the Gospel Tide Broadcasting Association began reaching out to the Ndebele people of Zimbabwe through a daily radio broadcast program called "Amagugu Evangeli," which means "Precious Gospel." Today, this program has evolved into weekly Sunday service broadcasts and 5-minute daily devotinal morning programs broadcast on FM radio. There are over one and a half million Ndebele people in Zimbabwe and also many Ndebele people living in other countries like Botswana, Malawi, Mozambique, South Africa and Zambia. The Amagugu Evangeli programs are now available online, and there is a daily devotional available through Whatsapp so that Ndebele speaking people who have moved into these countries, and elsewhere around the world, can hear the Gospel message in their own language..

These programs are produced in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe where we have an office and a recording studio. The population of Bulawayo is primarily Ndebele. There are numerous churches in the city and our director in Zimbabwe calls on some of those ministers to provide messages for the programs. This program, consisting of a message and music, is especially appreciated by the rural people in Zimbabwe, many of whom do not have churches to attend, or must walk very long distances to a church.

Even though Zimbabwe has been fairly extensively evangelized there are still many who need to hear the gospel message, and many more who are hungry to learn more about Jesus Christ.
