The Tide® recently heard an amazing story of two students in Nigeria—one Muslim and one Christian—who were connected because of a Tide radio program.
Director Don Shenk reported that a Christian student in Nigeria was accused of blasphemy by Muslim students, then beaten into a state of unconsciousness. By divine intervention, a Muslim student rushed the Christian student to a nearby hospital before others could do further harm.
“When someone later asked the Muslim student why he chose to help this Christian, he answered that he had listened to The Tide’s Hausa language radio program the night before,” Shenk said. “After more than 70 years of reaching people groups around the world, we know that The Tide gospel radio programs can be life-changing, but in this case, one program was life-saving as well! What an amazing testament to God’s power to change hearts through His Word.”
The Tide ministry’s newest initiative, called “Every Knee, Every Tongue,” allows people to help place gospel radio programs like the one heard by the Muslim student in regions around the world. Through “Every Knee, Every Tongue,” all are welcome to sponsor Christian radio broadcasts produced by The Tide ministry and recorded by local indigenous pastors in both populated and remote communities across the globe.
Rooted in Romans 14:11, “It is written: ‘As surely as I live,’ says the Lord, ‘every knee will bow before me; every tongue will acknowledge God’” (NIV), “Every Knee, Every Tongue” raises the question: How will every knee bow and every tongue proclaim praise to God if we don’t share what Jesus has done with others?
