A radio ministry started March 1 in Africa gives Christians more time with the people.
Integrated Community Development International has been working with HCJB Global to start the first privately owned short-wave radio station in Central African Republic. ICDI’s Jim Hocking said, “When I started ICDI, I realized that if I was going to impact communities for the long-term and impact them as far as change and the way they did things, and how they cared for their children I was going to need to have more contact with them than a periodic trip.”
The focus of the radio station will be on community development. Messages on how people can care for themselves will be broadcast in four languages: Sango, French, Aka and Fufulde.
