TWR in Belarus produces seven radio programs, but six of them are in Russian so as to be understood by Ukrainians and Russians as well as Belarusians. Only one of them is in the Belarusian heart language.
Voice of a Friend is produced for listeners who need encouragement from God’s Word. Some of them live in small villages without any churches, while others are immobile or bedridden so that radio is their only source of spiritual nourishment. Among the topics discussed are trusting God, marriage and the family, church and relationships, building character in youth, and responsibility in the Christian life.
Besides dealing with political and economic instability, Belarusians still suffer the effects of the 1986 nuclear disaster in Ukraine. More than half the radioactive fallout fell on Belarus, resulting in environmental, economic and psychological devastation with thousands of lives lost. Twenty percent of the land area, much of which had been productive for agriculture, is considered uninhabitable. Radiation-related health problems still occur at a very high rate.
TWR would like to raise $15,000 to support this important program for encouraging the people of Belarus.
