第三天 向索馬里人傳福音──Day 3 Reaching the Somali

For English version, please refer to the latter part of this page

索馬里是基督徒受到最極端迫害的國家之一。基督教事工要麼被禁止,要麼在非常艱難的條件下運作。索馬里的基督徒工作者秘密地敬拜,害怕“青年黨”激進組織。盡管受到格種迫害,通過廣播節目、不同的媒體平台和基督教組織,這個地區仍有許多傳福音的機會。

環球電台正在回應這個地區、許多人急切的靈性渴求和迫切的需求。通過廣播、數字媒體、以及不同的索馬里語節目,像是《穿越聖經》、《今日之道》、《婦女的希望》、《路加醫生》和《正義之路》,環球電台正積極地向索馬里人提供屬靈的喂養。此外,Atoo Sifa 90.7也向卡庫馬難民營廣播,其中許多人是索馬里人。

《認識上帝》是一個25集的節目,目的是向那些之前沒有聖經知識的社區介紹基督信仰。使用索馬里語,以非洲村莊為背景,用溝通而不用對立的態度,講述一位慈愛而寬恕的神。每一集都是一個基督徒老者,和兩個年輕的非信徒之間的對話,討論基督教信仰的基本要點。他們學習如何敬拜上帝,並將生命交托給基督。該節目是短波廣播,短波廣播是一種非常策略性的傳播工具,因為它在整個地區傳播範圍廣泛,可以覆蓋到分布在整個地區的索馬里語使用者。

長達20年之久,肯尼亞環球電台一直在與生活在索馬里和肯尼亞,以及其他對基督教持敵對態度的穆斯林地區中分享福音。盡管基督徒受到迫害,對福音的渴望仍在持續增長。使福音能傳達給更多人的一個原因,是數字媒體的發展。在此之前,在該地區廣播福音唯一安全的方式是短波廣播,只有那些(很幸運地)擁有安全的虛擬專用互聯網連接、郵政地址或與環球電台有個人聯系的聽眾,才能從電台接收反饋。

然而,數字媒體的快速發展讓世界變成了一個地球村,因此各種安全的通信和廣播平台被引入。肯尼亞環球電台現在在app、網站、社交媒體、調頻和短波廣播上,都有幾個索馬里語節目。新的平台也更安全,因此聽眾無需使用真實身份與電台溝通。

禱告

主耶穌,為著《認識上帝》節目感謝你。
願那些尋找答案的人,能夠聽到廣播中的教導並獲得智慧。
願聽眾在荒漠之地找到你,主耶穌。你是他們的生命之水。

Day 3 Reaching the Somali

Somalia is one of the countries where Christians face the most extreme persecution. Christian ministries are mostly either prohibited or operate in very challenging conditions. Christian workers in Somalia worship in secret and fear the al-Shabab militant group. Despite this persecution, there are many opportunities for evangelism in this region by using radio programs, different media platforms and Christian organizations.

TWR is responding to the frequent spiritual thirst and corresponding great need present in many people in this area. TWR is ideally suited to addressing and meeting these needs, offering hope and lasting peace through the good news of Jesus Christ, by utilizing radio and digital media. The ministry reaches the Somali people through different programs in the Somali language, namely Thru the Bible, The Word Today, Women of Hope, Dr. Luke, and The Way of Righteousness. Also, Atoo Sifa 90.7 broadcasts to the Kakuma Refugee Camp, whose inhabitants include many Somalis.

Knowing God is a program comprising of 25 episodes that introduce the Christian faith to communities with no previous knowledge of the Bible. Set in an African village, in the Somali language, it is nonconfrontational and describes a loving and forgiving God. Each episode is a conversation between an older Christian man and two younger nonbelievers who discuss the essentials of the Christian faith. They learn how they can worship God and surrender their lives to Christ. The program is produced for shortwave radio, which is a strategic tool for broadcast because it has a wide range to reach Somali speakers spread across the entire region.

For over 20 years now, TWR Kenya has continued to share the gospel with many believers living among Muslims in Somalia and in other areas of Kenya and beyond that are antagonistic to Christianity. Despite the persecutions meted out on believers, the thirst for the gospel has continued to grow. One factor that has enabled the gospel to reach more people is the growth in digital media. Previously, the only secure way of broadcasting the gospel confidentially in this region was via shortwave broadcasts. Listeners could receive feedback from the ministry only if they were privileged enough to have a secure virtual private network internet connection, a postal address or personal contacts with TWR-affiliated people.

The growth in digital media has turned the world into a global village and thus introduced various secured platforms of communications and broadcasting. TWR Kenya now has several Somali programs downloaded on applications, websites, social media, FM and shortwave. The new platforms have also brought in more secure ways of engaging listeners and receiving feedback. These platforms are secure because listeners do not need to use their real identity to communicate.

PRAYER

Thank you, Jesus, for the program, Knowing God. May those seeking answers
find themselves listening to a radio teacher and gain wisdom.
May listeners find you, Jesus, as their Living Water in a desert place.
