TWR desires to minister to the whole person, and through the Healthy Life Series, listeners in Africa can learn about a variety of topics related to health and hygiene. Our focus for 2018 is to develop a program for the Suba people group in northern Tanzania that will both share the gospel with them and address health issues common among the Suba, such as HIV/AIDS, child marriage, polygamy, female circumcision, and child exploitation.
The Knowing God program will be produced in the Kiswahili language in partnership with SIM, a local church in Tanzania, and TWR’s East Africa studios. The 25 episodes of the program present a drama of two young men who are being taught by a mentor about what it means to love God and accept Christ as Savior. As they learn, the health issues are addressed to bring a biblical worldview to the Suba, who are subsistence farmers and fishermen in the villages surrounding Lake Victoria.
While there is no radio station available to the Suba population of about 132,000, TWR will distribute the program on pre-loaded audio players, which can also hold the audio Bible, music, and other Kiswahili programs from TWR in East Africa. Our goal for this new program of the Healthy Life Series for Africa is $12,000.
