A station with a heart for the community

Radio Wimbe is a station making programmes in multiple languages to a diverse community in Pemba, Mozambique.  The station broadcasts a range of content from water and sanitation messages to encourage behaviour change right the way through to agricultural advice, Bible teaching and gospel music.  Station manager Farida says “I believe the big thing that Radio Wimbe contributes is the transmission of love." 

Please pray for the station, the staff and its listeners this week.

SUNDAY 15th October

Station manager Farida requests prayer specifically for her hardworking team of presenters:

"Pray for the radio, please pray for the presenters. They are very important for this to work. It is not me as the leader, the presenters are the ones that lead with the listeners, they lead the programmes. They need our prayers. They need the love of God- without God they will not be successful. Please pray for them."

MONDAY 16th October

Farida also asks for prayer for the Radio Wimbe Association:

"Please pray for the association. Pray that they are united and they pick up the work as something really important for them. At times when they are tired and weary, please pray that God gives them strength."

Makua speaker Nuru listens regularly to Radio Wimbe and has changed his behaviour as a result of the health advice he heard on the programmes: "I am beautiful because of Radio Wimbe.  I stopped drinking.  I am clean inside and I have become beautiful".

Please pray for listeners like Nuru and for further health improvements in Wimbe's listener community.  Please also pray for the health of the station staff.

Please pray for the continued use of local languages, and for compelling content to be broadcast for different language groups.
