Gods Dirty Dozen

Radio PrayerIf I were to get to know those who know you best and ask them all the questions I could think of about you, I would get to know you very well, wouldn’t I? Well, then it stands to reason that if we get to know God’s best friends real well, we will get to know a whole lot about God, won’t we? Let’s then make some observations of those that he used, each in a mighty way. I call them, “God’s Dirty Dozen.”

Jesus is not joking

Jesus is not jokingI had always prayed every night to God, but I did not know Jesus yet. I was in the emergency ward one night. I had a benign tumour in my chest that was causing indescribable pain. I was vomiting the painkillers and had extremely low iron and a lung infection as well as a gastro virus. I was in hospital alone and on a drip of water and maxillon (anti-nauseous drug). I had a reaction to the drug and thought that was the end for me. I was alone (my boyfriend at a party because I had been sick for two years so it was no surprise). I left the hospital about three hours later and stayed in bed for about 2 days. A week later I was really scared and didnt know what my body would do next.

He Made the Blind to See

"He Made the Blind to See", this is the theme of todays Friday, Dec. 17, 2004, broadcast starting at 2100 CET on 5,775 kHz, via European Gospel Radio:

This is the third sermon on John chapter 9. An unnamed blind beggar is receiving his sight. What was the reason? According to Jesus, He sought out this beggar “in order that the works of God should be made manifest in him”.

Astounding contrasts: The Pharisees, in their carnal mind, excommunicated this formerly blind beggar, because he did not want to deny that Jesus was from God. These graduates from honored seats of learning were corrected by this untrained new disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ.

On the other hand we see what Divine grace can do. It brings a beggar to the feet of the Savior. It gives him a wisdom that exceeds the wisdom of the Pharisees. His logic is impeccable: “One thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see”.

Jesus in science

Escaping from Russian occupationWhen the Russian army occupied my country Czechoslovakia, I escaped to Sweden so that I would not have to live under the Communist dictatorship again. There I had a friend who worked as a scientist in a group investigating elementary particles.

Sometimes he took me with him, so I could see how they do experiments. After their experiments the scientists would meet in a cafe shop to discuss their conclusions. I asked them about the reason why some things which were impossible to happen, yet they did happen. For example: how could a particle traverse an energy barrier which it could not pass. On my question on how this could happen, they answered that there is a spiritual world, and God is interacting with the physical universe.

Special promotion for high power broadcasts

Radio Antenna at Kelvedon Hatch ( M Kenyon )

 

European Gospel Radio is operating broadcasting services to reach listeners worldwide with powerful shortave transmitters using 150 and 300 kW, via satellite radio & TV, internet radio and video streaming and now also on AM/Mediumwave in Rome and Central Europe.

According to our experience Shortwave radio is still a unique, very low cost and far reaching opportunity to bring a message to the remote lands of China, India, Africa, the Middle East and the former Soviet Union. A radio message on Shortwave radio reaches millions of people far away and over large territories at a fraction of the cost of conventional media, especially when FM, TV or satellite reception is not available. From our unique position in the South-Eastern part of Europe we can reach all the most troubled, conflict and poorest region of the world where Shortwave is just about the only way to receive a message of salvation.

On Shortwave we reach daily Africa, Mid and Far East, Asia, Pacific. Other regions can be specifically targetd using high power broadasts and directional antennas.

On AM/Medium Wave we broadcast from just a few blocks from the Vatican and from the city of Padua, and we reach the city of Rome, the North Eastern part of Italy, Croatia, Slovenia, Austria, Switzerland and southern Germany every evening and night with English language broadcasts.

With the recently addition of AM/Medium wave and Internet streaming services we can offer competitive bundles to reach Rome and most populated areas of Norther Italy.

We are running a special promotion for Christian stations and program producers. For more information check our website at or email us at: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it with promo code THANKS2012

New broadcasts to West Africa

West AfricaOn Sunday Feb. 8, 2004, IRRS starts new test broadcasts to North (Mediterranean) and West Africa using a powerful 100 kW beam. These broadcasts are intended to cover a large segment of listeners who live in the large populated areas of North Africa over the Mediterreanean sea, and especially those living in tents and refugee camps in the desert.

Among them over 170,000 people are living in four refugee camps in the harsh southern Algerian desert in West Africa. For the last twenty years these refugees have been forced to live in tents, and Shortwave radio is just about the o­nly communication media able to reach them.

Broadcasts to this area are part of a co-operation project involving several Italian organizations and Regione Emilia Romagna. The goal of the project is to re-enforce communication with the Sarahawi people that to this day use Shortwave radio as o­ne of the most valuable communication media to the outside world.
 

New high power (250 kW) tests

Radio for PeaceOn Christmas Eve, Dec. 24, 2003, we run a four hour special broadcast using 250 kW of power, featuring programs in English, German and Italian. This was a o­ne time, occasional broadcasts with a special Christmas program produced by o­ne of NEXUS-IBA's members in Europe.

The latest portion of the 250 kW night-time broadcast was heard with excellent conditions by listeners overseas in the USA and Canada. Here are some excerpts from emails received in real-time during the broadcast:

EGR heard loud and clear in Australia

We are receiving reports from the Pacific that our Friday evening broadcasts using 100 kW are reaching Australia and New Zealand with a "loud and clear" signal.

A listeners in Australia tells us: "Ive just tuned in on 5.775KHz, just on sunrise here in SE Australia, at 19.25 hrs, with a Panasonic DR48. Sounds like a religious man speaking about Gods Grace (Reading from Epistle to the Romans at 1932 hrs), with a 60 metre longwire, pushing about an S7 to 9 with 100% readability. Signal prior to sunrise is excellant 9+30, first time Ive listened to IRRS. Also listening with the 16kbps stream, which is nice."

Another listener writes us : "I just thought I would inform you now of how well your signal was received here in Eastern Australia in Port Macquarie, N.S.W."

These are just some of the messages that we receive, and tells us how European Gospel Radio broadcasts on Shortwave and over the Internet can reach far away countries, and indeed are going far beyond our intended target areas.

Our audience on Shortwave

Even the largest broadcasters on Shortwave cannot accurately estimate the size of their audience to any program they air on Shortwave, to the same or even a comparable level of accuracy that any FM or TV station can do for any particular market. Since 1979, we have been working with several Radio Ministries, the BBC, the United Nations, UNESCO and other major International broadcasters and media, and with those involved in audience and International media research. Only the largest organizations like the BBC or Voice of America can afford the cost of conducting some sort of audience research on Shortwave. Some empirical data exists on the number of Shortwave receivers in each country, that lead to a potential audience of more than 10 millions in Europe and about the same in in N Africa and the Middle East, i.e. regions that we are able to cover with a Grade-A signal using our newly started 100 kW service. Most of the time we know that people are listening, because we monitor continuously our signal quality in several countries, and because listeners write us and/or to our members or program producers.
