University Students: Post-modern, or not, they love using media!
Listening to students record radio scripts and negotiating for radio airtime was a thrill. It was all a part of a series of special classes in Spanish which I taught at the 87th Harding Bible Lectureship.
Harding students practice
recording radio scripts
• La Radio: Escribir para el Oído (Radio: Writing for the Listener)
• La Radio: Producir para Muchos Medios (Radio: Producing for Many Forms of Media)
• La Radio: Negociando la Radiodifusión de su Programa con su Emisora (Radio: Negotiating the Broadcasting of Your Program with Radio Station)
Helping to spark an interest in young people to launch their dreams for sharing Christ, through understanding some of the realities of radio production and broadcasting, was main goal. Students came to class with their laptops ready to download the free audio recording program Audacity and to learn editing techniques. Students from both the USA and Latin America attended each session. Some expressed interest in becoming involved immediately.
– “I would like to produce a Christian radio program to share the love of Christ to people my age in Costa Rica.”
-“I want to do mission work somewhere in Latin America. Using media to do that is the way to go.”
Living in an age where our young people grow up as experts in technology, now is the time to teach them to use it for the Lord. While there are thousands of doors waiting to be knocked, there are millions of doors waiting to be opened for Christ through the use of media. The ease with which these young people use their computers and other technologies opens up a great opportunity for sharing Christ with the world. Hopefully, some will adopt the vision: Accelerating Evangelism in Latin America through Media.
Ministers: Let’s study the Bible together using media!
Local evangelists receive DVDs and JoAnne Howe’s book
“Un Cambio de Habito”
– “We will use the 126 programs in home Bible study groups, personal evangelism, marriage enrichment, and more,” shares Cruz Hernandez of Houston.
Spanish conferences in both Orlando, Florida and Tulsa, Oklahoma brought over 40 evangelists and church leaders requesting sets of DVD’s for use in their local ministries. Con La Biblia Abierta is currently being broadcast weekly in 23 countries throughout North and South America. But, having the program in the hands of active evangelists, for immediate viewing, is fantastic! This is another form of personal evangelism that you are providing through this ministry.
Albums with 126 TV programs are being mailed to Latin American church leaders.
