Moundou in Chad
Since 2012, we have been working with a team in the south of the country, in the second largest city in Chad.
Motivated by the words of Jesus – “I have come that they may have life and have it to the full.” (John 10:10) – we work together with churches, congregations and partner missions.
We help the churches to set up Christian radio stations and assist them with technical issues. Many more stations are being planned with our partner church Église évangelique du Tchad (= Evangelical Church in Chad). Radio is still the number one medium in Chad for reaching people in the most remote areas with the Gospel, educational programs and news!
At the request of the churches, we help to transport the evangelists to the field, show Christian films open air and give them tracts so that they can distribute them to the people.
To train and encourage church staff, we conduct seminars on the subject of “Working with children and evangelism”.
In 2021, a new line of work will be added in the form of an optician. We will set up a small optical workshop to make it possible for people to acquire a visual aid.
To make these areas of work possible, there are many other tasks at our mission station, such as working in the workshop (automotive, electrical, metal, wood), housekeeping, office …
Interesting facts from the radio work
Basil is the radio host on the radio “Bodo”. “I was allowed to be trained as a teacher for the mobile Bible school in 2017. I am very grateful for that. I came back motivated and with a lot of Bible knowledge. So I was asked to immediately pass this on to our listeners on a daily basis.”
“On the occasion of a survey conducted by our radio team at the big market in Moundou, 95% of Muslim traders confirmed that Radio Bonne Nouvelle was their radio of choice.”
Interesting facts from the mobile bible school
Vice President of our partner church, Akonso Gaya David: “In preparing to teach, I was still able to gain new biblical insights even after so many years as a pastor.”
“In our first program, a pastor from the ACT church was allowed to participate. Unfortunately, he never received any pastoral training, so he learned a lot during that time and is very grateful.”
