Radio might be an “older” technology, but it’s still very useful for ministry work around the world. Wycliffe Associates has begun using radio signals to support Bible translation work. Radio signals can’t be blocked or monitored like the internet, and it doesn’t require difficult or dangerous travel.
The program’s beginnings
Tony Tophony with Wycliffe Associates talks about how this program got started. “In Madang, in Papua New Guinea, the translating teams there said, ‘Why can’t we have something ongoing, that reminds us and walks us back through all the lessons we’ve learned here at our workshops with you? [We need training] when we leave, and we go back to our homes and life happens.’ In the eastern highlands of Papua New Guinea, it’s not easy to get around.”
