Reporting the ‘Good News’

Bad news, like war and famine seem to be the leading topics of any news broadcast around the world. However, there is a ray of light and hope through Jesus, according to a Syrian reporter named Malek.

The average person can change the channel to avoid the bad news, but reporters like Malek are in the unenviable position of not being able to turn away. His ray of hope comes in the form of broadcasts from the Lutheran Hour Ministries (LHM) ministry center in Beirut, Lebanon.

“I am so blessed to be given the opportunity to listen to your radio programs,” said Malek. “You have given me hope in life among all this chaos that is happening in the world – your programs led me to see the light of Jesus Christ.”

Malek said he works for a local magazine, and his articles are disseminated in several magazines and newspapers. “Throughout my career, I had only reported the bad events of the world, but after listening to your radio programs my life changed, and I feel as a fresh new person. It is time to write about the Good News – salvation in Jesus,” he said. He added that the more he listens to the LHM programs, the more he wants to know about Jesus and the Holy Bible.

Malek enrolled in LHM’s Bible Correspondence Course (BCC) in order to help himself prepare for “his new job of reporting the Good News.” Malek said he is so happy and that this has been a major change in his life. His family is also sharing this happiness. He is determined to report the Good News and make others happy the same way he has found happiness.

Your continued prayers and support for LHM allow outreach programs to have an impact all around the world. We ask that you prayerfully consider a gift to our International Ministries today.
