Gospel on Zambia Television: About
four years ago, the Truth for the World television program began spreading
the Gospel on the Zambia National Broadcasting Corporation. The response
was almost immediate and is continuous. When we negotiated a new contract
last year, we changed our time slot from Sunday morning to Sunday evening
in their prime time. This was done at the request of many of the Christians
in Zambia who could not watch the program because on Sunday mornings they
were assembling with the saints to worship. An added benefit to the new
time slot is that during the soccer season, Truth for the World follows
the national soccer broadcast. This is like following the weekly NFL broadcast
here in America. Another advantage we have in broadcasting in Zambia is
the strong network of sound, mature brethren we can call on to visit, teach,
and baptize those who hear the truth on television. Ed and Lina Crookshank
of the Truth for the World staff served as missionaries in Zambia for 16
years. Rod and Brenda Rutherford served in Zambia for 7 years. The ties
they made then and have continued since through yearly campaigns make it
possible for us to be sure that sound brethren will do the follow-up. All
of these factors together make Zambia one of the best opportunities for
winning souls to Christ of anywhere in the world! On June 26, 2000, Ed,
Rod, and Dave Amos will be going back to Zambia for a month long campaign.
During their stay in Zambia they will need to negotiate a new contract
for the upcoming broadcast year. If possible, we need to have the money
for the next year in hand before they go. To continue preaching the Gospel
on ZNBC next year will cost approximately $1800 per month. While this is
a considerable sum, it is very low compared to the cost of television time
in America. This is $1800 per month to reach a potential audience of 5,600,000.
This works out to less than $.03 per person per month. In concrete terms,
this means we can reach 300 people for less than $.03 per month! We presently
have $370 per month coming in for the Zambia TV program. We are hoping
this will continue next year. If it does, we will require an additional
$1430 per month to keep the program on. We need twelve individuals or churches
to step forward financially and pay for at least one month of programming.
While many may not be able to pay for the entire year’s cost of keeping
the program on, most congregations and many individuals can pay for a single
month. Brethren, I ask you to search your heart first, and then your bank
account. Opportunities such as this are rare and far too valuable to let
slip by. If you are willing to help, please send your check to Truth for
the World, P.O. Box 5048, Duluth, GA 30096-0065. In the memo line, please
write “ Zambia-TV.” Please allow me to thank each of you for prayerfully
considering this need. As John prayed for Gaius, “Beloved, I pray that
you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers”
(3 John 2). Paul Meacham, Jr.
