Radio Turns Distress to Joy
first published: Feb. 7, 2005 – Gospel for Asia
Kripal folded up the letter she’d just finished writing and put it in the mail, her heart full of gratitude. Not long ago, she’d sent another letter, but out of distress.
Kripal had listened to GFA’s Athmeeya Yathra (Journey with Jesus) radio broadcast. As she heard about Jesus’ love and care for her, she thought He could help her daughter. She wrote a letter to the GFA office asking for prayer for her daughter’s family problem.
As Kripal waited, the staff at the GFA office in her state received her letter—one of dozens they received that month from radio listeners—and began praying. And the Lord worked in the hearts of Kripal’s family members. Kripal joyfully wrote her next letter to the office staff to let them know the family problems were solved. She praised God, knowing the One she heard about on the radio was the true God, and He had answered their prayers.
