Seizing the unique opportunity that lockdown presented, FEBC Mongolia, together with local church partners, livestreamed a Christmas Outreach Pageant on Facebook. Titled “Let It Be CHRISTmas”, the livestream reached nearly 164,000 viewers and was shared over 2,000 times. Throughout the Christmas season, the Mongolia’s FEBC Family Radio Station continued to broadcast daily, bringing truth, forgiveness and purpose into many live. FEBC Christmas radio broadcasts were not just aired through their own stations but also in three of Ulaanbaatar’s secular FM radio stations. The results were phenomenal. The impact is eternal and we continue to praise God for opening doors and healing hearts.
Special programs continue to be produced and aired for women with the intention of bringing acceptance and a sense of value, and provides additional support and education to those who suffer domestic violence and sexual harassment. Lockdown restrictions which were put in place to stem the spread of COVID-19 sadly escalated domestic violence within the homes of thousands of Mongolian families. Before lockdown, over 4,500 radios were distributed in an attempt to provide a window of hope to women suffering within their homes. Over the past 12 months, the team in Mongolia have seen an extensive increase in listener responses and outreach, which they attribute to the many families listening at home during COVID lockdown restrictions.
The provision of radios becomes a lifeline for woman desperately seeking hope. We pray for the work of the team in Mongolia and ask God for His protection over the hearts hearing the broadcasts.
