dventist World Radio is a media ministry of the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, broadcasting the good news to the world for more than 50 years. With over 1,000 worldwide radio stations and local studios, cell-phone evangelism, apps, podcasts, health messages, and Internet-based outreach, AWR is currently broadcasting in more than 100 languages! But plans are underway to prepare evangelistic sermons and health presentations in more than 500 languages and dialects so that every person on the planet can listen to Bible-based messages in their own language.
Radio is still the primary source of communication for most of the world. It knows no borders, no walls, and no limits. It can penetrate homes and hearts and go where missionaries cannot enter. One major target of Adventist World Radio’s broadcasts is the 10/40 window, comprising parts of North Africa, the Middle East, and Asia—areas currently closed to the gospel message but easily reached by radio. Last year, AWR’s Unlocking Bible Prophecies and Earth’s Final Countdown series received millions of views in dozens of languages. Many of these videos are still the top results when people search for Bible prophecy topics on YouTube and Google. Every day, AWR receives e-mails, letters, and messages from worldwide. One recent letter said: “The Unlocking Bible Prophecies series is transforming my family. I was raised Baptist and attended church on Sunday, so I’ve been so blessed to learn of the Sabbath and will be attending my first in-person Adventist church service this weekend.”
If your offerings are distributed according to the Combined Offering Plan’s suggestion, fifty to sixty percent of your offerings should support your local church. Then, twenty to thirty percent will maintain regional missionary projects (usually sponsored by your Conference and Union). The remaining twenty percent will be sent to the World Missionary Fund (or World Budget). This World Missionary Fund supports all missionary projects sponsored by the General Conference, including the AWR. But if, in addition to your Promise offering, you are impressed to send a special offering to the AWR, you may specify AWR in your tithe and offering envelope or access awr.org/support/ choosing one of the options to give.
