A recent report highlighted a concerning trend in India; nine million girls have gone “missing” in India over the past two decades due to sex-selective abortions. In a culture that deems daughters less important than sons, parents are choosing to abort their female children. Many times, parents cannot afford to feed or provide dowries for their daughters and abortion is the chosen path because there is a lack of understanding about the sanctity of human life in the Indian culture.
The Tide® ministry believes all people have inherent worth, which is why it’s so important to continue our important work in India, We share the Gospel via radio and television broadcasting to millions of listeners in their native tongue, sharing the Good News of Christ and teaching them that Christ died for them. By showing them that a powerful, loving God sacrificed Himself for them, listeners learn how important they are to Christ and will see those around them — including their daughters — in a different light.
Listeners have already responded to our messages and emphasized how it changed their lives for the better.
One listener wrote, “After to listening to your messages, I realized how precious life is and I have no right to destroy it. The love of Jesus Christ broke my heart and I accepted him as my Savior. I am now a changed person.”
Another commented, “One of my friends asked me to listen to your radio program, and I came to know the value of life and the importance of knowing God from your program. The messages were heart touching. One day, a pastor invited me to a church meeting. Out of curiosity I joined it, but I never knew that it would change the course of my life. I have received real joy and peace through faith in Jesus in my life.”
“I have listened to your program several times through the radio,” one listener wrote. “I like this program for many reasons. I developed an interest to know the true God. Jesus Christ was explained to us beautifully. Having understood all this, I asked Jesus for forgiveness and trusted Him as my only God and savior.”
We praise God that people are responding to the message and seeing the value of every life. We will continue to be diligent in proclaiming the Gospel throughout the region until every last person has heard the Good News or Christ returns.
