Voice of Hope Blogtalk Radio to China

Our Voice of Hope Blogtalk Radio Show airs live every Friday at 6PM China time. You may wonder, How does that work?

Every antique_radio_microphoneFriday morning at 6AM or 7AM (USA time) I gather together on the phone with the show’s producer, Jo Ann, and our translator, Youyu. Jo Ann works her wonders on the Voice of Hope blogtalk website, and together we present the Gospel of Jesus and the teachings of the Bible over the phone and onto internet recordings to our Chinese listeners.

I write these scripts ahead of time, so our translator can insert the Mandarin translation. We actually have a great time, and last week an English listener from North Carolina facebooked us to tell us that she listens every week and is really blessed by the show.  Who’d have thought?!

Someone on the other side of the world is listening to Voice of Hope on their computer!

Since our first show aired on 11/11/11, we’ve had more than 76,000 listens! That’s quite a sheepfold! God is SO good! From October 2014 to June 2015, we ran a series of children’s shows that stressed learning English, phonics, and exciting Bible stories–one story for each letter of the alphabet! Some of you remember all this and you GAVE money and GAVE prayer to a group that took our shows into China this summer.  That’s right, just TWO MONTHS AGO, our little team returned with such blessings to report!

Please go to my radio producer’s blog site to see pictures and read her story, as she compares it to a journey very much like the one that Hansel and Gretel took.

A Hansel and Gretel Journey through China

Myth and folklore often have roots in truth.

The story of Hansel and Gretel reflects a truth that I saw illustrated on our recent journey across China.

Germany, circa 1840,  famine grips the land, and Hansel and Gretel’s stepmother determines to take the children deep into the woods and abandon them there so she and her husband will not starve to death. The brother and sister overhear the stepmother’s plan. As they are led through the woods, Hansel leaves a trail of bread crumbs to mark the trail and lead them home. Hansel assures Gretel that God will not forsake them.

Eventually, they discover a cottage made of gingerbread, cakes, and candy, owned by a wicked and cannibalistic witch who uses the candy to lure children in and eat them. The witch tries to fatten up and cook Hansel and Gretel, but some quick thinking on Gretel’s part lands the witch in the oven. The tables are turned! The wicked witch is dead, The children discover  precious jewels in the house . . . (read more)

About Lift the Cross of Jesus!

My day job is writing--I'm an author and publisher of a number of books. More on that later. But there is nothing of greater importance to me than the early morning hours I spend with the Creator of the Universe. Although He knows everything there is to know, His greatest delight isn't to give us knowledge, but to give us love. My highest joy is to watch the sun rise with notebook in hand and write the words he speaks to my heart. I want to share some of those words with you here . . . words on the cross.

    I’ve been camped in the book of John this week…watching Jesus watch the Father. Today I watched the feeding of the 5000…and heard Jesus saying THIS is what Daddy does. THIS is what I do. Receive from Abba and give it out…the masses are starving. What a beautiful parallel parable you provided this morning! Sharing for others to feed upon. Love you!

    I’ve prayed daily for these little stuffed animals and their precious cargo, that they would reach the children God intended them for. May He continue to use them to cause faith to rise up, and to bring them to the Father.

    Thanks for all that you do, Hope, and for your many helpers in spreading the Gospel!

    God bless you, every one!
